The most powerful, well equipped and fastest motorcycle from Bajaj is here

Bajaj did not participated at the 2016 Auto expo but they did leave quite a huge impact at the 2014 Auto expo where they showcased two of their latest concept motorcycles, the SS400 and CS400. Bajaj already launched the smaller variant of the SS400 popularly known as the RS200 which is powered by a 199.5 cc, single cylinder liquid cooled engine. The RS200 attracted lot of attention and even managed to sweep almost all the awards last year. Now that Bajaj have already launched the RS200 it was time for them to plan something big in order to enter and dominate a new segment.

Besides the SS400 the other concept which was showcased at the 2014 Auto show was called the CS400. Compared to the SS400 the CS400 definitely looked more like cruiser and it was powered by a 400 cc power mill.

But keep all that aside and imagine Bajaj Auto launching a 400 cc motorcycle in India. What does that actually mean? The motorcycle was supposed to be priced aggressively which will make it accessible for many motorcycle enthusiasts who wants to own a powerful motorcycle, it definitely is feature loaded which includes powerful headlamps, more informative digital instrument cluster and above all an ABS system for the safety of the rider.

The production test mule of the CS400 concept was spotted several times on Indian roads which indicate that the motorcycle has received all its inputs in India keeping the Indian road conditions in mind. Now that its launched in the Indian market and like we expected has been priced quite aggressively we have provided all the details of the motorcycle in this overview article

Bajaj is all vocal about the Dominar 400 stamping on Royal Enfield

Bajaj is all vocal about the Dominar 400 stamping on Royal Enfield

They say: Don’t own an elephant.

When Bajaj launched the Dominar in 2016, it was highly pitted against the mighty Royal Enfield Classic 350. It was supposed to gorge away the sales of the RE and leave it hanging dry. I, for one, was actually very confused at this conjecture made by both Bajaj and the moto fraternity on how they interpreted this rivalry. There wasn’t any in the first place if you ask me.

To veer off loyalists from sticking onto Royal Enfields, Bajaj has started a Bulldog battle aiming straight at those RE purists and urge them to chuck the elephants and take onto the Dominar 400.

Bajaj Dominar 400 vs Mahindra Mojo

Bajaj Dominar 400 vs Mahindra Mojo

Showdown of the Naked Sports Tourers

It might have taken a long time, but then, the segment of naked sports tourers has finally begun to burgeon in India. It all started way back in 2012, when Mahindra previewed the Mojo concept for the first time in a raw form, something which still needed a finalised finishing to be launched in a full-fledged manner. Until this year, it was only Royal Enfield which had the presence in the entry level middleweight segment with its range of 350cc cruisers and roadsters.

In 2015, Mahindra finally introduced the Mojo as the only naked sports tourer which had the potential of rivalling the Royal Enfield offerings, with its distinctive styling, excellent engine and top notch hardware. Being the flagship product from Mahindra, the Mojo had to succeed in each and every aspect, owing to the fact that it took a long period of three years in the name of research, development and testing. And then, the end product turned out to be something which was beyond the expectations of enthusiasts, who had little hopes from Mahindra in the premium motorcycle category.

Now that the trumpet was blown by the Mahindra Mojo, how could the competition remain behind? Speaking of the premium sportbike makers, India’s most serious player in this particular segment, Bajaj Auto, had something cooking in its R&D centre. A preview of this process was shown at the Auto Expo 2014 when Bajaj showcased the Pulsar CS400 concept, which was aimed at naked sport tourer lovers. With its premium and unique design elements and the KTM connection in its mechanicals, the Pulsar CS400 generated huge hype around it, with the enthusiasts eagerly waiting it to be unleashed on the market.

And finally, towards the end of the year 2016, Bajaj surprised us with the all new Dominar 400, a product completely based on the Pulsar CS 400 concept. What was more astonishing is the fact that the motorcycle, more or less, is exactly the same machine as the Pulsar CS 400, barring a couple of changes. With a positively shocking starting price, the Dominar is all set to join the Mojo to expand the naked sports tourer segment. However, given the spirit of competition, we need to find out which one of the two emerges out to be the better machine, keeping all the aspects in mind.

In this feature story, we are going to compare two motorcycles in an all new segment of naked sports tourers – both coming from home-grown manufacturers, but do possess a lot of internationalism in their design and engineering. Here’s our comprehensive comparison between the all new Bajaj Dominar 400 and the Mahindra Mojo:-
