This Dominar 400 model produces 33.4 WHP compared to the standard model’s 27 WHP. Race Concepts estimates that the new KTM Duke 390 model produces 32–33 WHP.
Wheel horsepower (WHP) and torque figures have been measured because they represent the values that the rider truly has after accounting for transmission losses. A standard WHP value is 15% lower than the value visible at the flywheel when compared to vehicles (BHP).
A additional loss of value of up to 25% results from all-wheel drive. Motorcycles’ WHP value is heavily influenced by the components they employ since the heavier main wheel must be adjusted in order to provide a forward-biased movement.
A strong vehicle, the Bajaj Dominar 400 has a 373.2cc, single-cylinder engine that generates 35 HP at 8000 rpm and 35 Nm at 6500 rpm. The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox that also has a slipper clutch for quicker downshifts when driving aggressively on the track.
Its 182 kg weight is excessive compared to lighter KTM bikes with the same engine capacity. The large weight makes the power ratings seem low, but reducing the weight is difficult because the majority of it is concentrated in the engine and frame. The price range for the Dominar series is INR 1.42-1.56 lakh (Ex-showroom).
