From The Experts

  • Cons
Kawasaki Dominar 400

For a motorcycle of its category, the Kawasaki Dominar 400 looks very muscular and sporty. The big fuel tank, wide handlebar, and low slung profile does give it a macho personality, which meets its positioning as an entry-level sports tourer

Blessed with contemporary features, the Kawasaki Dominar 400 feels a new age bike. Things like fully digital instrument console, full LED headlamps and tail lamps and LED turn indicators do make it feel very contemporary and designed for new-age riders

The four-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 373cc engine of the Kawasaki Dominar 400 is a good mix of urban and highway rideability and performance. The torque band is evenly spread across the entire rev range, which makes it very tractable to ride in any gear you want

With a low slung stance with lower positioned handlebar and seats as well as slightly forward-set footpegs, the Dominar 400 has a very nice and comfortable ergonomic setup for all heights of riders, thus imparting a relaxed riding posture.

Agile handling

Cheaper and more powerful than the Ninja

Kawasaki Dominar 400

The engine of the Kawasaki Dominar 400 feels adequately powerful for a motorcycle of its size. However, the vibrations at higher rpms aren’t too well-controlled, which might be irritating at times, given it is a mile-munching sport-tourer motorcycle

At 183kgs, the Kawasaki Dominar 400 is a bit too heavy, especially for newer riders. This, added to the beefy design of the motorcycle, makes it a bit cumbersome to ride in tight traffic conditions, owing to its relatively large turning radius.

The fully digital instrument console on the Dominar 400 has a nice design. However, with a very light appearing backlight, the fonts are difficult to read while on the go. Also, for a motorcycle of this price, the console shows limited information on display
