Absolutely terrible name - sounds like some cartoon villain from HeMan

MODs: Can you change the name of the thread to the official name?

I really hope Bajaj has chosen this name on recommendation of some numerology, astrology and what not experts and wish their collective knowledge makes this bike a success. Apart from that, I can't find a single reason for such a silly name. Bajaj CS400 would have been much better or for that matter even Kratos was good enough.

That apart, how do I spell it? Dominar as in Pulsar or car?? Disappointing.

I can only imagine how "Dominar" would sound when spoken in a local thick desi accent.

Now don't anyone say that this bike is only meant for the folks who converse in English.

If i remember correctly some thing simmilar happened when Hyundia Creta was launched. But after that i never heard any one calling it X Creta or the other things people suggested.

So similarly here, what i am going to do is remove and TWO PILLAR names from the bike i buy and paste a good old Monogram of Pulsar from the PULSAR 220

Excerpt from a recent Businessline article.

Quote:
How will the Dominar 400 score in this segment where Bajaj Auto’s other brand, KTM (with its 200 and 390 Duke), has hardly made any ripples?

"Within the Royal Enfield stable, says Bajaj, people are buying a 350cc bike, be it a Bullet or Classic, at a price range of ₹1.1-1.3 lakh.

KTM begins at ₹1.5 lakh while the 390Duke is a little over ₹2 lakh which means there is already a problem in terms of affordability.
"


Expect a typical Hamara Bajaj type of VFM product in the Dominar 400.

Price, any guesses?

They need to smart about this, there's a whole of heat lined up for this segment in 2017-2018. Typically they don't have any competition, because what we've seen so far is typically in direct competition with the KTM's (G310 R case in point).

They can't price it too low and delivery not a great quality product as well, because their motive is to eat away into RE's sales numbers. They need to have a solid reliable product if they even want to think about making a dent in RE's numbers.

I think there is an option of a Dominar 250 as well. After all Bajaj already manufactures the KTM 250 Duke/RC 250.

Believe me, its very much possible.


From what I know the 250 and 390 shares the same engine platform (The 125 and 200 shares the other one).
