  • Unveils 3 new models – Avenger Cruise 220, Street 220 & Street 150
  • The new Avenger range is set to re-define and expand the cruiser segment

Mumbai, 27th October 2015: Bajaj Auto today launched the new Avenger range - The Avenger 220 Cruise, 220 Street & 150 Street. The new Avenger series redefines the cruiser bike segment to offer unmatched international styling and cruising comfort. The new Avenger 220 Cruise retains the classic cruiser comfort and looks. The all new Avenger Street range is designed for  easy city riding. The Avenger Street 150 has been introduced to bring the genuine cruiser experience to the large set of emerging 150cc users.

More about Avengers

The Avenger 220 Cruise comes with a liberal dose of chrome highlights thanks to a new radiator, redesigned side grabs, stylized silencer and an all new handlebar. It carries multiple style enhancements and cues which add to its stunning international classic cruiser look. The Avenger 220 Cruise comes with comfortable padded backrest and an optional windshield for easy cruising on highways.

While the Cruise is chrome, the Avenger 220 Street is more stealthy with a matte black and brushed silver finish. The 150 Street comes in midnight blue. Combined with the muscular alloy wheels, the Avenger Street looks sporty and  youthful. The Avenger Street  has a new, lower and flatter handlebar for better maneuverability in city riding. The Street series is all set to take on the city challenges on weekdays and go on long easy rides on weekends.

The new Avengers come with a brand new insignia, new graphics and styling cues, improved rear suspension, bright white light headlamps, clear lens indicators and low slung seats with thicker dual density foam for superior riding comfort.

The Avenger 220’s come with Bajaj’s trusted 220 cc DTSi engine to deliver great performance statistics - 19 PS power and excellent low to mid-range grunt with torque of 17.5 Nm.  The bikes come with an oil cooler to help this hi-performance engine maintain engine oil temperature & viscosity irrespective of external riding conditions. The Avenger 150 Street’s engine is a 150 cc DTSi, which has been completely revised for this bike: it delivers 14.5 PS of power and a torque of 12.5 Nm which is enhanced at low rpms, making it an excellent match for the Avenger riding style.

Commenting on the launch Mr. Eric Vas, President – Motorcycles Business, Bajaj Auto Ltd, said “The genuine cruiser segment has steadily grown over the years with  the Avenger as the torch bearer. We expect that by bringing in an additional style  variant such as the Street, and by offering the popular 150 cc capacity, we will significantly  expand the cruiser segment. With the new Avenger models joining the immensely successful Pulsar range, Bajaj Auto shall strengthen our offerings to discerning customers in the Indian market, and reinforce Bajaj Auto’s leadership in the premium motorcycle segment.”

The Avenger range will be manufactured at the motorcycle plant at Chakan near Pune. The Adventure Cruise 220, Street 220 both will be priced at Rs 84,000/- and Street 150 at Rs. 75,000/- (all Ex-Showroom Delhi).
