The 2019 Bajaj Dominar launch is right around the corner. Dealers in multiple cities have begun to accept bookings for the bike and now images of what appear to be pages from the bike's manual have surfaced online.
Since the bike was first spotted testing, the internet has been abuzz with speculation of the Dominar's powertrain updates. Now, from the specifications on the sheet, it can be seen that while the updated Dominar continues to be powered by a 373.3cc engine, it produces 39.9hp at 8,650rpm – a substantial 4.9hp increase over the 35hp at 8,000rpm seen on the outgoing model. While peak torque remains unchanged at 35Nm, it now arrives at 7,000rpm in comparison to 6,500rpm as seen on the current bike.
How Bajaj has achieved this remains to be seen, as the spec sheet still lists three spark plugs. This raises the question as to whether they shifted to a DOHC set-up (as seen on the KTM 390 Duke) or if they’ve have retained the original SOHC design. Alternatively, the increase in power could be a result of an increased compression ratio and more aggressive cam profiles, among other things. The engine also continues to be mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
