Bajaj believes that leisure cruising is something that’s not about just weekends, but can be done everyday

Customer looking at international styling, easier handling during city commute and something relevant to their rational requirements

Avenger has grown by 26%, while the motorcycle market has grown by 9% which hints at the opportunity leisure cruising segment presents

Bajaj dominates the sports biking with the Pulsar, but leisure cruising is also getting increasingly popular.

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.

  • Well, the engines on the new Avenger have sure been a bit of a disappointment, but we don’t want to be conclusive about the bike until we have ridden it throughly. We are going to test ride all three variants very soon. Will let you know our verdict by 21st of November.

    Bajaj explained the statistics to Indian motorcycle manufacturers about growing cruiser segment rather than avenger release with new engine !!!

    new bikes 100 cc, 125cc, 150cc segment have 4 valve oil/air cooled engines , 200cc have 3 spark engine coolant new gen engines!!!! But not the new avenger !!! We just need re tuned new 200cc 4 valve 3spark (not oil cooler ) with coolant cooler like Pulsar NS,RS engine for avenger with rear disk break with optional ABS !! All are ready to pay ex showroom price of 1.5lack for extra new engine , rear disk break with ABS ??

    I know this is not going to happen for Bajaj until and unless TVS releases new cruiser 😀 Bajaj forgot it's own innovation path, new engine concept , following it's entry level bike features in cruiser !! 100cc platina have 4 value engine!! Avenger doesn't!! All excitement gone !!! 🙁 🙁 expecting feed back from Amit

    After a significant wait finally Bajaj has launched its new Avengers (so called new). But Personally I just see some paint job done.
    They added alloy wheels to it and I was hoping it would probably add up tubeless tyres too, but no! There are no details about it.
    The back seat rest has been removed and it looks like old Discover left out back handler bars are added in stead.
    Bit confused whether I should buy this bike or not!

    Lady rider in the last pic is Dr. Aparna Bandodkar. She uses Royal Enfield (named as Bijli by herself) as a daily rider to her clinic in Mumbai.

    Well the reason I said that was having driven a friends Avenger 220 quite lot, it feels underpowered on open roads and definitely lacks 6th gear. Hence I guess I'm better off with AS200 for those occassional tours. AS200 would be better off in city as well.
