Bajaj Auto is all set to launch its first ever 400cc bike in India by the end of November or early December 2016.
Now, what was showcased as the Bajaj Pulsar CS400 concept at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, was earlier rebranded as the Bajaj Kratos 400 in order to create a new brand for the touring segment to compete against Royal Enfield.
In another u-turn by the Pune-based bike manufacturer, Bajaj has yet again renamed the Bajaj Kratos 400 as the Bajaj Dominor 400.
The “Dominor” moniker means “To Dominate” in Spanish and Bajaj intends to dominate the sports cruising segment in India with the launch of the Bajaj Dominor 400.
Bajaj had earlier intended to name the bike as Kratos 400 but the name Kratos was already registered by another bike manufacturer and Bajaj was unable to copyright the name.
This change in name has now led to the bike launch being postponed by a couple of weeks.
Earlier we had confirmed reports that the bike will be launched in midnight November 2016.
