Official: Pulsar CS400 is Dominar 400: Launch Date Confirmed [Poll Inside]

After sharing the first pics of their biggest motorcycle from the production lines a few days back, Bajaj has shot in an official press release announcing its name. Initially showcased as Pulsar CS400 at the 2014 Auto Expo, the motorcycle will be called as Dominar 400 finally!

Dominar, Bajaj informs, is derived from a Spanish word which means “to excel or exceed in power” and this is precisely what Bajaj is upto with what will be their most powerful motorcycle ever. The Dominar brand will sit over their most successful Pulsar brand and if this initial hype is anything to go by, it may replicate the success of the Pulsars of November 2001!


Anyways, this has come after a long wait with new names sneaking somewhere in between – one such name was VS400 (where VS was claimed to stand for Vantage Sport) and Kratos which was a little weird.

Dominar Launch Date

Along with its name, Bajaj has also announced Dominar’s official Indian launch date which happens to be on Thursday 15th December.
