Bajaj India has now added two new variants with its existing range of Bajaj Avenger bike and also updated the current model. So now Bajaj Avenger 220cc is available in two variants – Cruise and Street variants, which are available at Rs. 84,000/- (ex-showroom Delhi). The main reason of this article is 150cc Avenger, yes it also gets a new 150cc variant at priced Rs. 75,000 (ex-showroom Delhi).
Due to the festive season, the company has already updated the Platina, Discover and Pulsar range of vehicle and now Avenger. The Street variant sees additions in the form of an all-black paint scheme with red highlights, mag wheels, black exhaust, black painted engine, new grab rail, new instrument cluster and much more.
Now these changes might remind you of the Harley Street 750 but we guess that was the idea. The 220cc Bajaj Avenger is capable of putting out 18bhp and developing 17.5Nm of torque. The 220 Cruise comes with a bit more chrome on it and the headlamps, side grabs and a handlebar are all dipped in it.
The surprise that Bajaj brought to the table is the Avenger 150cc and it will be available only in the Street variant. This 150cc unit has been borrowed from the old Pulsar 150 with power figures around 13bhp and a maximum torque of 12.5 Nm. The bike will boast of 10% better torque at low to mid range when compared to the same engine on the Pulsar. Bajaj also promises improved NVH characteristics with a new silencer and an exhaust note to make it fit the cruiser characteristic bill.
Here are the prices (ex-showroom Delhi):
- Bajaj Avenger 150 Street – Rs. 75,000/-
- Bajaj Avenger 220 Street – Rs. 84,000
- Bajaj Avenger 220 Cruise – Rs. 84,000/-
