Bajaj is on a launching spree with a host of BS6 updates coming in the next few months under the KTM, Pulsar and Dominar moniker. As per the latest buzz, the 2020 Bajaj Dominar 400 with a BS6-compliant engine will be launched in the Nepalese market next year.
In addition to this, the brand has recently launched its first-ever electric scooter by the name Bajaj Chetak. The brand will launch the BS6 model of the Dominar 400 after the implementation of the new emission normsmon April 1, 2020.
The launch of the 2020 Bajaj Dominar 400 has been delayed as the brand does not want to make a BS6 model compete with the heavily-discounted BS4 models available in the market.
Commenting on the launch of BS6 compliant variants in the brand’s portfolio, Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director, Bajaj Auto stated – “We have a robust pipeline of launches for the next 18 months. Our problem is sequencing. These are Husqvarna, high-end KTMs, Dominars, Pulsar and other variants. One might see a lull between now and April, though there are a couple of introductions and an accelerated product introduction after April 2020.”
Adding to his statement, Mr Rakesh stated: “The launches will accelerate post-BS-VI because we don’t want to handicap a new product with BS-VI cost while competing with BS-IV players.”
