dominar 400

Upgraded 2022 Modenas Dominar D400 reportedly set for local introduction middle of this year.


Tahun lalu, gergasi motosikal India, Bajaj Auto telah memperkenalkan Dominar UG 400 yang telah dikemas kini dengan ciri ‘touring’.

Motosikal yang dilabel sebagai jentera ‘sport tourer’ itu telah dinaik taraf dengan beberapa ciri baharu antaranya penghadang angin tinggi, handguard, slot pengecas UBS, pelindung enjin (bash plate) dan ‘carrier’ serta ‘back stopper’.

Dalam perkembangan terbaru, rakan media melaporkan bahawa Dominar baharu versi ‘touring’ itu akan diperkenalkan untuk pasaran Malaysia tidak lama lagi oleh pengedar tempatan, Modenas yang turut bertanggungjawab menjenamakan semula motosikal Bajaj untuk pasaran negara.

Bagaimanapun, model baharu itu akan terus menawarkan spesifikasi sama seperti Dominar D400 UG termasuk enjin satu silinder 373.3cc DOHC dengan penyejukan cecair yang menawarkan 40hp pada 8,650rpm dan 35Nm pada 7,000rpm.

Dengan permintaan semasa terarah kepada motosikal jenis ‘touring’, ternyata kemasukan Dominar versi baharu ini akan menggembirakan ramai kaki ‘touring’ yang mahukan motosikal seumpamanya dengan harga mampu milik. –

Bajaj Auto is set to introduce an updated version of the Dominar 400.

According to reports, the new Dominar will sport a new styling for 2021, including new colour options, presumably the same dual-tone colour schemes introduced for the 2021 Dominar 250.

While detailed information is yet to be obtained other than word of mouth from Bajaj dealers in India, we can expect a minimal styling update done to the flagship motorcycle.

The facelift Dominar will continue to offer the same 373.3cc engine capable of delivering 40hp @ 8,800rpm and 35Nm @ 6,500rpm while mated to a 6-speed transmission.

The 2021 model will utilize the same 43mm upside/down front forks, preload-adjustable monoshock with Nitrox, 320mm front disc and 230mm rear disc and dual-channel ABS.

Bajaj dilaporkan akan memperkenalkan Dominar 400 versi touring berdasarkan beberapa gambar yang telah didedahkan.

Akaun Instagram iamabkerdotcom telah memuat naik beberapa gambar diambil dari kilang Bajaj di Pune yang didakwa merujuk kepada Dominar varian touring.

Berdasarkan imej dikongsikan, Dominar 400 tersebut tampil dengan penghadang angin lebih tinggi serta handguard.

Bagaimanapun, jika dakwaan ini benar maka pemilik Dominar 400 dan Dominar 250 sedia ada berpeluang memasang kit touring ini secara berasingan.

Sementara itu, Bajaj Dominar edisi touring ini dijangka akan terus dikuasakan enjin 373.3cc satu silinder DOHC dengan penyejukan cecair yang menawarkan 39.4hp pada 8,650rpm dan 35Nm pada 7,000rpm.

Ketika ini, Bajaj Dominar 400 turut dipasarkan di Malaysia menerusi penjenamaan semula oleh Modenas.

  • The Modenas Dominar “Explore the Unexplored” ride series came to a close with an unforgettable trip.

  • It started from Juru Auto City and stopped in Rimba Valley Motorcamp, Janda Baik.

  • It covered more than 500 kilometres.

The Modenas Dominar “Explore the Unexplored” Ride series came to a close with an unforgettable trip.

It took them on the highway, up the mountain, into the valleys and finally to camping for a night before resuming with off-road riding on the final day.

The ride series not only highlights the beauty of Malaysia to Dominar riders the world over, but it also shows that the bike is capable of taking them wherever they wished to go.

Day One – Saturday, 13th July 2019

Leg One – Juru to Cameron Highlands

Just like a previous “Explore the Unexplored” (ETU) ride, we congregated at the Restoran Nasi Kandar Pelita in Juru Auto City, Prai.

There, the riders who have signed up online confirmed their registrations and were handed a participant number and exclusive ride t-shirt. The ride briefing was then presented over breakfast concerning the route, safety aspects and the meaning of “Explore the Unexplored,” plus #motography and #motographymalaysia.

The ride was flagged off at 6.30am after the obligatory photo op and headed south on the North-South Highway. The convoy of 16 riders was kept as compact as possible while maintaining higher average cruising speeds to avoid disrupting other road users. Yet, there are still impatient cretins who overtook us by mere centimeters, as if to push us off the road.

We stopped for fuel at the Petronas station in Simpang Pulai before taking on the curvy road. Traffic was thankfully light at this time of the day, but we spotted a car which ended up in a ditch. All occupants got out safely.

In the lead marshal’s mirrors, the participants behind could be seen grinning inside their helmets, as they swept through the corners. One by one, bikes leaned over into the turns like dominoes.

The brisk pace brought the pack to the Banjaran Café for another photo op and drone video shoot.

We hopped back on our bikes and continued towards Brinchang, passing the “Monaco” tunnel.

The participants were set loose to capture their own best photos for their #motography and #motographymalaysia mission.

Leg Two – Cameron Highlands to Sungai Koyan

We regrouped at the Shell station in Ringlet just past noon for the next leg.

There was only one obvious choice of route if you want to head to the areas around Bentong, and that was via Pos Betau and Sungai Koyan.

The riders got into the rhythm of sweeping into the curves that the road is famous for. Deep depressions in the apex caused a few entertaining moments but the route was fun for the lightweight Dominar 400’s neutral steering and ability generate impressive lean angles.

If anything, the route proved that time flies when you’re having fun because the twisties seemed to end in no time at all.

Leg Three – Sungai Koyan to Klau Dam

We had wanted to circumvent the Bentong town for fear of heavy traffic and heavy trucks that are driven like the drivers who just had their ketum tarik.

It was at this point that Google Map decided to act up and made us travel for kilometres on a road before telling us to turn back to the way we came from. We had lost some one hour chasing that GPS i.e. guna pun sesat(“use GPS but still get lost”) symptom.

We found our way to the Klau Dam boat jetty afterwards, but we didn’t stop as it was late afternoon and we didn’t want to arrive in Janda Baik when it’s dark.

Leg Four – Klau Dam to Rimba Valley Motorcamp, Janda Baik

But the GPS must’ve been holding some type of grudge that day – it took us Bentong town after all… And instead of leading us onto the Karak Highway, it led us down that old Bentong – Gombak trunk road.

Anyway, it was still an interesting ride as the tight corners highlighted the Dominar 400’s abilities and agility.

We went past Kampung Bukit Tinggi and straight up the arch that welcomed us to the Janda Baik area.

Everyone was relieved when he headed down the gravel trial to Dato’ Capt. Nik Huzlan’s Rimba Valley Motorcamp.

Camping Under the Sky

The Rimba Valley Motorcamp was set up by Dato’ Capt. Nik. Capt. Nik (as he likes to be addressed) was a pilot who flew for 35 years in Malaysia Airlines and is a very well-known personality in motorcycling circles. He had owned some 70 motorcycles up until today. He still rides actively but he is very busy lately in preparing for this year’s mega GIVI Rimba Raid.

Taking place from 26th to 28th July 2019, GIVI Rimba Raid at Janda Baik has already attracted the full grid of 150 riders from 16 different countries.

Anyway, the participants jumped into the clear and cool stream next to the camp ground almost as soon as they removed their riding gear. Most hadn’t even checked in to their tents. Finger food and refreshments were already in place when we arrived.

That evening, we were treated to a succulent and amazingly delicious BBQ lamb and chicken, plus other dishes.

The valley floor is flanked by steep hill slopes on both sides, no doubt blocking out telco signals. This had a great effect on the riders as they ignored their smartphones and sat together to share stories, described their ride with swishing hand motions and poke fun at each other.

Baskers were called in to provide the evening’s entertainment. The three-piece band did such a great job that other families camped their exited their tents to listen to the music.

As the night wore on, we expected the riders to turn in early after the tiring 11-hour ride. Instead, many stayed up until almost 2am, chatting with their new found friends.

Day Two – The Activities

The day was planned for the usual ETU “slow ride contest.” But when Capt. Nik suggested that the riders should experience riding in the area surrounding the camp, it was greeted with enthusiasm. No one said no.

Capt. Nik escorted us to a stream crossing and briefed us on basic off-road riding techniques. One by one, we rode through the stream, giggling and laughing when emerged on the far bank without a single untoward episode.

We pressed Capt. Nik for more and he acquiesced by taking up what he called the Level 2 Hill. Everyone made it through without a single crash or dropped bike.

The Dominar 400 surprised even the owners themselves of its capabilities.

We headed back to the camp for lunch, before durians were brought to us.

But all good things come to an end. We packed up with heavy hearts and hugged each other as we bid each other farewell and a safe ride home.

Everyone remarked that they enjoyed themselves immensely and it was the best ETU ride, ever. But one guy summed up this ride best: “This was definitely the best. We got to ride on the highway, go up a mountain, ride through corners and finally went off-roading. It’s got everything!”

The adventure covered some 51,000 km through 3 continents and took 99 days to complete. Other major adventures were also shown including the Dominar Trans-Siberian Odyssey, Dominar ASEAN Odyssey, and Dominar Austral-Asian.

The 2019 Dominar 400 has been updated further over its predecessor. The main headlamp features split LED banks, the forks are now 43mm diameter upside-down units, and the rear monoshock is softer for more touring comfort.

Its 373.3cc single-cylinder engine is uprated to produce 40 PS (39.4 hp) at 8,650 RPM and 35 Nm of torque at 7,000 RPM. Those figures take the bike into the KTM 390 Duke territory. Spent gases exit through a new exhaust system with dual silencers.

Apart from those features, a slipper is also added for smoother downshifting and corner entries.

On the electronics front, the split-LCD screens are retained, and incorporates mileage and gear position indicator, so forth.

The Auroral Green colour shown in the TVC is new, too.

When will it show up in Malaysia? We will know soon! Also, stay tuned for the next Dominar “Explore the Unexplored” rides in Malaysia.
