Dominar 500/600/700 are the varying options one can expect both manufacturer to build together for the future, not below it
Last year in 2016, homegrown two wheeler manufacturer Bajaj had launched the much awaited premium cruiser motorcycle the Dominar 400 for the Indian market on 15th December. After the launch of Dominar 400 Bajaj Auto, the country’s fourth biggest fourth biggest two wheeler maker is now working on developing bigger engine capacity motorcycles like the Dominar 500/600/700. The company recently announced a partnership with UK’s Triumph motorcycles to jointly make mid-capacity motorcycles for Indian and global market.
This tie-up between Bajaj Auto and Triumph Motorcycles could possibly give rise to an all new motorcycle model as well, which could help Bajaj compete with the likes of Royal Enfield in a price bracket between Rs. 2 lakh and RS. 5 lakh, which is also a segment that Triumph is not present in.
However, with Bajaj’s low cost expertise the partnership is planning to address the budget segment buyers looking for bikes having engine capacity between 400cc-800cc. The upcoming bikes will be made on this same platform with the help of Triumph Motorcycle. Bajaj does not have access to any motorcycle with a capacity of over 400cc, ever since its tie-up with Kawasaki ended in April 2017. Bajaj Auto will even get access to the Triumph brand, design and technology, apart from global reach, while the British company gets access to the higher volume motorcycle segment in the emerging markes.
The power cruiser will remain the same cosmetically with design elements remaining the same including the full LED headlamp cluster with two separate switches for adjusting beam and auto headlamp on AHO technology, raised decals, sculpted fuel tank, well padded seats, digitalized instrument cluster, LED tail-lamps, handlebars mounts and alloy bits on the footrest giving it an aggressive stance.
What is going to change is the engine and chassis of the speculated Dominar 500/600/700. The motorcycle will have a completely different engine setup and a whole new undercarriage. There are no as such confirmed reports on when will the new Dominar siblings could enter the Indian market and at what price range. Till the time bike enthusiasts can just hope for something more admirable and prominent coming up their way in the coming years.
