Dominar 400 E27.5 & Pulsar NS160 Flex Fuel Unveiled

With its Dominar and Pulsar flex fuel motorcycles Bajaj is trying to demonstrate its preparedness towards the alternate fuel energy sources…

Like other makers, Bajaj Auto is also preparing its products for Ethanol blended fuel. To demonstrate its preparedness the motorcycle maker showcased two motorcycles that can run on ethanol mixed fuel.

The company’s flagship motorcycle Dominar 400 has received a variant that is E27.5 compatible; which means the motorcycle can run on fuel with an ethanol content of as much as 27.5 (with the rest being gasoline). It must be noted that the current Dominar 400 is already E20 compatible (it can run on fuel with 20 percent ethanol).

While the engine specifics haven’t been mentioned in the press note, we connected with Bajaj and have a confirmation that the E27.5 variant also continues to be equipped with the same 373cc single cylinder engine. However, it is not known if there are any changes to the power and torque figures of the sports cruiser.
