While there will be features and accessories-specific updates, mechanical will remain unaltered. It will use the same 373.3 cc single-cylinder, DOHC engine which is a fuel-injected unit. The engine produces 40 PS of maximum power at 8,650 rpm and 35 Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm. It comes married to a 6-speed gearbox and features a slipper clutch as well.
Apart from the engine, cycleparts will also remain unchanged. It will continue to come with a 320 mm disc at the front and a 230 mm rear disc. The brakes will come kitted a dual-channel ABS. The suspension kit on the bike will include 43 mm USD front fork, and a multi-step adjustable monoshock sits at the back.
The new Dominar 400 will appeal to riders who prefer to travel long distances on a motorbike. While the Dominar 400 is already a touring friendly bike, the addition of new accessories will surely make it better at this job.
