A favorite among budget-minded riders looking to hit the tollways, the Kawasaki Bajaj Dominar 400 is a solid, affordable way to dip your toes into big-bike ownership. Initially brought into the Philippine market in 2018, the Dominar will be getting some nifty updates for the 2022 model year in its Indian home market.

Among the touring-focused upgrades to this naked bike are a tall windscreen, handguards, and a luggage carrier with an integrated pillion backrest. On the protection side, the latest version receives an engine bash plate with an integrated metal skid plate, and a new leg guard. A USB charging port and a smartphone mount round out the whole package.
