    Question Why is the 2019 Dominar 400 pulling towards the right side?

    I purchased the 2019 Dominar 400 last month (1000+Kms done, first service done, No accident or any other damage). I am facing a weird issue with the motorcycle since the beginning. While riding the motorcycle (Speed 50-70 kmph), whenever I put my hands off the handle bar it starts pulling towards the right side of the road. I believe ideally it should go straight in such cases.

    To confirm if the issue is not because of the road, I have tested the motorcycle on different roads (at different speeds) and it hasn't gone straight (or towards left side) even once.

    I contacted Bajaj Service Center regarding the issue. In the beginning they simply refused to agree that there is an issue with the bike. But later the issue got recreated 3 times in a row when the service center guy and me were on the bike. He still dismissed it as a minor problem. I am frustrated with the rude attitude of that guy, he's acting like he's paying for my expenses.

    Anyway, their argument is that they can't check the issue by lifting their hands off the handle bar as the company won't acknowledge it. But this doesn't rule out the fact that there is a problem with the bike.

    Later when I contacted them multiple times, their manager (who turned out to be very supportive) finally agreed that he will forward the issue to the senior Bajaj management (Waiting for the response).
    To add, I got the tyre pressure checked during my last visit. Also, the service center checked the wheel alignment "simply by looking at the bike" (Don't know if it's the right way). So, I can't say with assurance that the alignment is fine.

    I talked to a couple of other 2019 Dominar 400 owners who have mixed reviews regarding it. One person said they are experiencing the same problem but another person said there is no issue.
    While researching, I also found that the handling issue could be because of some manufacturing defect in the new USD forks. Still, I am not able to arrive at the conclusion.

    So, can anyone tell me what could be the reason behind the bike pulling towards the right. If any other Dominar 400 2019 owner has the same issue, please comment below.

    Yep, this is an issue with the 2019 model and many in the Bangalore group as well face it. One guy changed his tyres immediately and doesn't seem to face it, so it seems like it 'may' have something to do with the tyres. No solution as yet provided by the SC and hence you'll need to wait and watch.

    Same issue here, I bought the bike last week. Do keep me updated on what the service center guy says.
    I would rather be riding my bike thinking of God, than sitting in the temple thinking of my bike.
