Motosikal dan Enjin Nasional Sdn Bhd (MODENAS) has launched the highly anticipated MODENAS Dominar D400 sports tourer, the company’s first big bike in nearly two decades of existence as it continues to up its game in the local market.
The launch of Dominar D400 is aimed at bringing the sports touring culture to Malaysia by offering the combination of satisfying power for short sprints and smooth power delivery for long distance touring. It is the perfect sports tourer, with a design and riding posture that enhance the riding experience.
The second-generation Modenas Dominar D400 received a series of significant upgrades over its predecessor and is priced at RM13,997 (excluding insurance and road tax).
The main headlamp now features split LED banks with increased lighting, the forks are now 43mm diameter upside-down units, and the rear monoshock is softer for more touring comfort.
Its 373.3cc single-cylinder engine is uprated to produce 40 PS (39.4 hp) at 8,650 RPM and 35 Nm of torque at 7,000 RPM.
Those figures take the bike into the KTM 390 Duke territory while gases exit through a new exhaust system with dual silencers.
Riding experience further enhanced with an assist and slipper clutch for smoother downshifting and corner entries.
While Modenas retains the split LCD cluster, the secondary display now features gear indicators, small yet relevant aspects that was greatly missed on the previous generation.
Modenas CEO Roslan Roskan said the latest addition is one of the most highly anticipated models by Malaysians, as the upgraded model promises a more powerful and memorable riding experience.
“I am confident that it will be a popular model in terms of its technical improvements, new style and affordability,” added Roslan.
