In terms of sales volume, the new Bajaj Avenger cruisers entered the list of top 10 motorcycles of the country in December, 2015.

New Bajaj Avenger 220 Street

Launched in October 2015, the Street 150 and 220 twins have been priced at Rs. 75,000 Rs. and 84,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi) respectively. This also makes them the most affordable cruisers in the country. The new Avenger models have been introduced as replacement of the old model.

New Bajaj Avenger Engine & Braking System

Power for the 220 twins comes from a 220cc, twin spark, oil-cooled DTS-i engine that is claimed to deliver a maximum power of 18.7bhp at 8,400rpm and 17.5Nm of torque at 7,000rpm. This powertrain has been borrowed from the Bajaj Pulsar 220. Transmission duties are performed by a 5-speed gearbox. For shocks absorption, both the models get telescopic with anti friction bush upfront and twin shock absorber rear suspension system. The 220 twins are equipped with a 260mm disc brake and a 130mm drum brake on front and rear axles respectively.

New Bajaj Avenger Design & Features 

The new Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220 looks more or less similar to the previous model albeit with lots of chrome elements and new body graphics. The bike features an updated instrument cluster with analogue and digital meter, a high-set handlebar with slightly different design, new fuel tank and exhaust, back support for pillion rider and new seats with better cushioning.

On the other hand, the Bajaj Street 220’s all-black treatment renders it a stylish look. The bike shares some of its design bits with the Street 750 such as black alloy wheels and blackened engine and exhaust. It also gets a new digital instrument cluster, black handle bar, black rear view mirror and new graphic treatment. Similar to the Pulsar Demon Black Edition, the Avenger Street 220 comes with red and silver stripes on the side panels. While the Street 220 comes in matte black colour, the Cruise 220 is now available in Divine Black and Desert Gold shades.

While the Bajaj Avenger Street 220 carries a kerb weight of 150kgs, the Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220 weighs 155kgs. Both the motorcycles ride on 17-inch front and 15-inch rear wheels that are fitted with 90/90 – 17″ 49P and 130/90 – 15″ 66P front and rear tyres respectively. Dimensions of the Bajaj Avenger Street 220 measure 801mm in width and 1,070mm in height, while the Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220 is 806mm wide and 1,142mm tall. Both the motorcycles are 2,177mm long, and have a wheelbase of 1,490mm and 169mm of ground clearance.

Since the new Bajaj Avenger 2015 models belong to a niche segment, they don’t have any direct rivalry.

      Hi Rohit,

      Instead of the 200cc powered Avenger, the company will launch the updated 220cc in two versions – Street and Cruise. That said, there could be an entry-level 150cc version at quite an attractive price.

      Hi Binod

      There is only styling difference between the Street and Cruise 220; both models give similar riding experience.

    Please improve.

  28. R.K.Niranjan

    June 23, 2016 at 8:10 PMJun

    Bajaj Avenger is a long range journey motorcycle so it must be installed with DIGITAL Clock near at speedometer and Bajaj Avenger Cruise model should be also lunched in 150 cc model. Head light model should be modernism .
