2021 Modenas Dominar D400 updated – RM13,997

Priced at RM13,997 in Malaysia is the 2021 Dominar D400, a slight increase of RM209 over last year’s price of RM13,788. Pricing does not include road tax, insurance or registration and there are two new colour options – Savanna (seen here in the paultan.org article of 2019) and Charcoal Black.

The power plant of the Dominar is still the same, a DOHC, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder displacing 373 cc, based on the first generation KTM Duke 390 engine. The 2021 Dominar 400 gets 40 PS and 35Nm of torque, up from the previous 35 PS while torque remains the same.

In the suspension department, things are upgraded with the previous conventional telescopic now replaced with a pair of 43 mm diameter upside-down forks. At the back, a Nitrox monoshock, multi-step adjustable for preload, is installed and 13-litres of fuel is carried in the tank.

2021 Modenas Dominar D400 updated – RM13,997

Braking is done with a single 320 mm disc on the front wheel and a 230 mm disc at the back, while two-channel ABS is standard. The Dominar 400 rolls on 17-inch wheels shod with 110/70 rubber in front and 150/60 sized tyre at the back.

Inside the cockpit an LCD instrument panel displays all the necessary information and all up weight of the Dominar 400 is claimed to be 182 kg. Stocks of the 2021 Dominar 400 will be available at all authorised Modenas dealers from mid-September.

    with the upgrades and only RM209 price increase, it is still worth it.

    Hi admin. There’s misinformation on engine specification. FYI, older model are SOHC. New one DOHC. You can sourcing info from internet. Hope can make corrections on it. Thanks

      Couple things missed out also.

      Switch to radial front brakes (from right side to left side)
      New mirrors (old ones are useless past 150kmh)
      New secondary instrument panel with gear indicator
      New twin chamber exhaust muffler
      I also think weight has gone up a bit.

    How does this engine sound compared to the 250 cc Honda / Yamaha which is smaller but more powerful..

    • More Torque on low and mid but taper off on high rev, compared to 250 twin where power practically start at mid rev and increase up to high rev.

      To be honest, it sounds like a big kapchai….with a deeper exhaust note.

      But low to mid range power is superior up to about 7k rpm, where the twins will gain the advantage after that. Part of the problem is the Dominar is gear ridiculously low….. you will have to drop a few tooth on the rear sprocket if you intend to do highway rides.

      The twins will also be a lot smoother and less vibby…but the Dominar engine is not a highly stressed unit, and will run at 130-140 all day long as long as you can live with the vibrations, which can be quite bad at 7000-8000rpm.

      Why? Any particular reason?

      While dealing with modenas is a hit and miss, parts now can be easily and cheaply found online for this bike.

      I have one and have no problem sourcing parts online. It is incredibly cheap to maintain for a “big bike”. And I have not has any issues with reliability for the 10k Kms I have put on the bike since.

      This new model comes closer to the KTM390 than the previous model. So for the price, it is a damn good deal. Of course, if you have ridden this back to back with the Duke, you will know why the Duke cost 2x as much. As far as owners want to claim they are the same bike, it is not….but dont let that detract from the incredible value of money this bike is, and remains so with this update.
