Bajaj Dominar 400 is one of the most loved touring motorcycles in India currently. At a sub-Rs 2.0 lakh price, it is also the most affordable in its category. With good performance and reliability, this motorcycle has fulfilled both purposes of daily commuting and touring.

Bike modification is a common exercise among the biking community in India. Most bikers wish to have an exclusive sense of identity when they ride their bikes hence they get them modified according to their preference. The Dominar range is also one that supports after-market modifications quite well.

Modifications Rendered

For instance, take this Dominar 400 which has undergone a makeover at the hands of an after-market customizer. The owner, Shubham has added a new livery to his Dominar 400 which lends it the vibe of a racing sports bike.

The mixture of white and black with a healthy dose of red accentuates its sporty appeal. The number of modifications rendered are plenty and look tasteful on the touring machine. All GFX work has been done at a local customization shop in New Delhi. Total cost for the decals is Rs 2,500. Including the labour charge, total cost is Rs 3,500.

The most notable highlight is the coloured translucent windscreen from carbon racing. The golden colour of the inverted forks at front adds a nice contrast to the overall look of the bike. The headlamp cluster and indicators get a new setup which resembles Audi range. LED fog lamps from HIG have been installed at the front forks.

Other significant highlights include a radiator guard from Zana, a crash guard, raised handlebar, handguards, a backrest for a pillion and a foot-rest on the exhaust muffler. The owner reveals that he has also modified the seat by adding extra comfort foam which provides better cushioning even at longer distances.
