Bajaj Dominar to Ducati Diavel – Meet Domivel by Autologue Design
Yes, the Dominar is inspired by the Diavel. But, what if you were given the option to make your Dominar look more or less same as the Diavel? Would you want it?
Bajaj Dominar 400 priced at INR 1.38 lakhs for base variant and INR 1.52 lakhs for the top spec variant has been given a makeover by Autologue Design. With this latest conversion kit, which costs about INR 16,500, folks at Autologue Design are making it look even more like the Ducati Diavel, hence the name – DOMIVEL.
The new Bajaj Domivel gets new exterior colors, tank shrouds, colourful alloys, fancy colour lines running through wheels, front fender, headlight mask, fuel tank, side and rear panels and engine belly pan. On board features include an LED headlamp, slipper clutch, reverse backlit digital instrumentation and a split LED taillamp.
Individual cost of mods
– Tank Shrouds – INR 6,500
– Engine cover – INR 4,500
– Tail modification – INR 4,500
– Seat cowl – INR 3,500
– Tyre Hugger – INR 3,000
Showcased to bikers at their workshop yesterday, the new Bajaj Domivel retains the same engine and transmission setup. Bajaj Dominar 400 based Domivel is powered by a 373cc, single cylinder, fuel injected engine offering 35 PS peak power and 35 Nm peak torque mated to a 6 speed gearbox. This engine allows the bike to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 8.23 seconds and to reach a top speed of 156 kmph.
The addition of components to make the Dominar make look like Diavel has added weight to the bike. This means, the Domivel will not be as fast and responsive as the Dominar 400. Expect about 5-10 kgs added to the overall weight, which stands at 182 kgs before the mod job.
Ground clearance remains same and stands at 152 mm. Braking setup too is same – it receives 320mm disc brake in front and 230 disc at the rear, dual channel ABS and 43mm telescopic forks in front and multistep adjustable monoshock at the rear. Have a look at the detailed image gallery below.
