2015 Bajaj Avenger 220 Cruise - Intro Shot

The Bajaj Avenger econo-cruiser received a cosmetic upgrade, and a smaller displacement variant, as the Indian two-wheeler major launched the new range – the Avenger 220 Cruise, 220 Street and 150 Street.

The upgrades were limited to aesthetic only as the new Avenger 220 series continues to draw power from the same 220cc DTS-i engine that puts out 19PS of power and 17.5Nm of torque. We had a thorough look at these new products and here are our initial thoughts – First up is the new Bajaj Avenger 220 Cruise.

The new Avenger 220 Cruise, aesthetically, retains the same bodywork as the outgoing model but now comes equipped with a 3-D logo that sparkles on the fuel tank, along with a new set of graphics. The new logo on the 2015 Avenger 220 Cruise may remind you of the first generation Indo-Japanese cruiser, the Kawasaki-Bajaj Eliminator that rolled on the streets of India in the early 2000’s but a close inspection reveals that this is an all new logo that has been developed for the new generation econo-cruiser, with the “Avenger” tag carved on it.
