Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220 2016 Specifications, Price in India

After its introduction in India in 2005, the Avenger has seen several upgrades and developments. These upgrades have not been limited to cosmetic features but to the engine as well to make it more appealing to those looking for an economical cruising bike. In India, this segment has been largely unexplored and unexploited by manufacturers and there is tremendous scope. The new machine is a bit taller and looks like it means business. The windshield and pillion backrest, which are optional accessories, complete the cruiser bike effect. The new handlebar and fuel tank badges are trendy.

It is currently priced at Rs 85, 500 (Ex-Showroom Price, New Delhi) but the prices may vary from place to place.

Features

The Avenger Cruiser 220 is a comfortable option for the long highway stretches with its contoured seats. The power train and mechanical underpinnings allow for a smooth and relaxed ride even at speeds close to the three figure mark. The low slung style, curvaceous fuel tank and tall handlebars give it that distinctive cruiser fell and sophistication. With competition almost nonexistent, the new Avenger Cruiser 220 should be able to capture a fair amount of the market share.

The cruiser bike is powered by a 220 cc twin Spark, 2-valve, DTS-i engine. It delivers 18.8 Bhp @ 8400 rpm and 17.5 Nm torque @ 7000 rpm. The smoothness at lower revs is evident and the acceleration is liner. The sporty punch is present throughout the rev range like most Bajaj motorcycles and it gets more pronounced at higher revs. The fuel economy of around 40 kmpl may sound low, but considering the fourteen litre tank, it means you can travel for 400 plus kilometres before halting for the next refuel.

The wider seating is adequately well cushioned for long journeys and the front foot pegs are well placed. Pillion riders will also not be stressed much and the option of back rest also adds to the comfort. The suspension set up at the front and rear absorbs most of the irregularities of the road. The information console provides a fair bit of information; however, some of the information is on the fuel tank which involves taking your eyes off the road which is a little risky.
