New Bajaj Avenger 220 Street
The new Bajaj Avenger has been launched in two body styles – Cruise and Street. While the Cruise variant adheres with the traditional ‘cruiser’ styling and features spoked wheels with loads of chrome on the body, the Street variant is an urban-street take on the motorcycle by Bajaj with black alloy wheels and a more trendy styling.
