New Bajaj Avenger Street 150, Street 220 and Cruise 220 launched – Feel Like God!

After five long years, Bajaj Auto, India's second largest two-wheeler manufacturer, has given its only cruiser bike the much needed upgrade.

Bajaj Auto, the home-grown motorcycle giant, today launched the new range of Avenger in the country. Available in three models; Street 150, Street 220 and Cruise 220, the new Bajaj Avenger range is priced between ₹70,000 – ₹84,000. This would be Bajaj's seventh launch in 2015 and fifth launch this financial year. It had earlier launched three Pulsars, one Discover, Platina and CT100 models. Unlike a regular motorcycle, a cruiser is associated with long distance, relaxed biking experience. This concept was first promoted by world's largest cruiser bike manufacturer Harley-Davidson, though 1 of the new model’s of the Avenger looks similar to a model of the Harley. The new Avenger will sport a new high grip handlebar, which is akin to traditional cruisers. It will also get a re-styled instrument cluster and body graphics. Two of the variants will have 220cc engine.



There's the shiny, chrome-laden 220 Cruise, which, says Bajaj, gets a new handlebar, new radiator, and a new silencer. There's new stickers, the seat is a bit cushier and you can spec it with a windshield if you so please.

The 220 Street, on the other hand, rocks a matt black and brushed silver finish, alloy wheels and a lower, flatter handlebar to improve maneuverability. It doesn't just share its name with a certain Harley-Davidson as mentioned before, but it looks curiously similar, too. The 220cc motor makes 19hp and 17.5Nm of torque.

The newest of the lot is the 150 Street. In terms of appearance, it is almost like its bigger-hearted sibling, except it doesn't get the matt black paint, and has to make do with the 'midnight blue' colour scheme. Its 149cc single-pot puts out 14.5bhp and 12.5Nm of torque.

Overall, the new Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220 looks largely similar to the current model though with heavier chrome elements and a new exhaust. The Street models, on the other hand, get all-black treatment. The Avenger Street 150 and 220’s engines, alloys and exhausts also get black treatment. Other new elements are a digital instrument cluster and new graphics. And that's about it. All three bikes share the same chassis, the same five-speed gearbox, all come with front disc brakes and no ABS.

Street 150 - ₹75,000
