Two-wheeler manufacturer Bajaj is to launch The 2019 Bajaj in the coming weeks and details about its changes are now emerging online. While Bajaj Auto did reveal the 2019 Dominar in its TVC, a new set of leaked images of what appears to be from the bike's manual have made its way online. The leaked images though reveal details about the engine specifications on the updated Dominar that includes more power, among other upgrades.
Talking about the feature, 2019 Bajaj Dominar was rumoured to get a comprehensive set of changes ever since the first spy shots emerged last year. The latest leaked images reveal a power upgrade from the Dominar's 373.2 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. While the motor remains the same, the unit is now tuned to produce 39 bhp at 8650 rpm, a substantial increase in power compared to the current model's 35 bhp at 8000 rpm. Peak torque remains the same at 35 Nm, but now arrives at 7000 rpm, 500 rpm later than the current version. The 6-speed gearbox has been retained. It's not clear as to what was changed to extract more power from the same motor on the 2019 Dominar.
The current version is priced at ₹ 1.63 lakh (ex-showroom), and the new model could see a hike of about ₹ 15,000. That would still make the Dominar cheaper than some of its rivals including the KTM 250 Duke, TVS Apache RR 310, Royal Enfield Himalayan and the likes.
