Dominar 400 latest price increment of ₹1.5K has made the motorcycle significantly costly when compared to its debut price. We list the total increase…
In another round of price hike, Bajaj has increased the retail cost of its flagship model – Dominar 400, yet again! The motorcycle which started its journey at a shocking price tag of Rs 1.36 lakh for the base variant (and Rs 1.50 Lakh for the ABS trim), has now gone precariously close to that Rs 2 lakh mark – all within a matter of 3.75 years.
Dominar 400 debuted back in December 2016 as a sports cruiser. Bajaj offered a more feature rich model in 2019 and it was updated to Bharat Stage 6 emission norms earlier this year. What started as a value for money offering is now presented across as a ‘premium’ motorcycle in the lineup.

The BS6-related minor hike of Rs 1749 in April was followed by another increase of Rs 3000 in May. But Bajaj has not stopped at it – the motorcycle has seen yet another price increment of Rs 1507 which takes the effective BS6-hike to almost 3.3 percent. That may sound reasonable but what may not is its overall price increment over its small lifespan so far.
On the entry price, Dominar has become costlier by over Rs 60,000 which is an increment of almost 45 percent on the original price. If we talk only about the ABS variant, Dominar 400 has gone dearer by over Rs 46,000 which is a very significant increment of 30 percent! Add the controversial 5-year mandatory insurance and you end up paying a lot of extra money to get one home now!
Bajaj has introduced the smaller Dominar 250 recently to offer it as a cheaper alternate and after skipping one round of increase, it has also gotten costlier in this latest hike.
