Bajaj Avenger 220cc DTSi Review

Here is a cruiser from the stable of Bajaj Auto- Avenger 220cc DTSi. Of course the name is not new for many bikers. Bajaj Avenger 220cc is the new avatar of its predecessor Avenger 180cc. The Avenger 180cc was the first cruiser that shared the engine of the other variant from Bajaj Pulsar 180 and then the second version Avenger was launched with the engine though picked up from the Bajaj Pulsar 200.

But since the production of the Pulsar 200cc has been stopped for sometime now, the company has given a fresh look to the Avenger by borrowing the engine from the Pulsar 220cc again, which also shares the same engine with that of Pulsar Street Fighter 220cc. It was on June 17, 2010 the launch of Bajaj Avenger 220cc happened, and the bike is expected to be under the top class category as well as an affordable cruiser in the country. However, with the addition of new Avenger 220cc Bajaj’s fleet of products bloats further including the Pulsars, Discovers and the Candy Ninja.

As regards Avenger 220cc with the superb design braced with amazing performance the company is all set to strengthen its foothold in the bike market.

Looks
The good news for Hamara Bajaj Avenger is that it has hardly got any competitor in the market. And rightly so the company will be eager to vouch on that fact and will look forward to increasing their sales. The Avenger 220cc is no doubt an up graded version that does not give any all new features in terms of looks except for a very few changes in the graphics, which is very minimal. The new Avenger has almost retained the looks of the older Avenger and though there are no new features with regard to the looks in the new Avenger, it is still holds the appealing factor.

Details into engine and performance
The Avenger has basically inherited the Pulsar 220 cc that features four-stroke, single-cylinder DTSi 219.89cc air cooler engine along with the carburettor that gives a power output of 19.03PS at 8400 rpm and torque of 17.5Nm at 7000rpm. The big oil cooler helps in faster and efficient cooling of the engine. The bike is enabled with a DC unit that emits light beams in all speed limits. The DC ignition system ensures easy start with lower trigger start rpm. With a power-packed engine the Avenger 220cc is no doubt is a performance-oriented bike. The bigger engine is also expected out-class the performance executed by of Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark when the pick-up, speed, acceleration and torque will be compared.

Handling and comfort
The new battery sensor and auto-cancel indicators make it perfect handling machine. The maintenance-free battery and dual-density seating offer tension-free ride and comfort while cruising even on the highways or during long rides. Bikers who test ride the new Avenger will definitely say that the bike technologically superior and a rather stylish machine will make your riding experience comfortable and a memorable one.

Besides, the new Bajaj Avenger 220cc has the DC system as compared to its predecessor, and that should make it better and brighter in the electricals and lighting of the bike.

Price and color availability
The price of the Avenger 220cc, as expected is a few thousand rupees higher than the Pulsar 220. The Avenger 220cc is priced at Rs 69,000 and is available in the following colors: Black, Red, Blue and Silver. You can place your hands on the new Bajaj Avenger 220cc only after booking it in advance and the delivery will be done is fortnight’s time.

Our verdict
Bajaj Avenger 220cc has many similarities of its predecessor Bajaj Eliminator that was featuring a single-cylinder, air-cooled engine originally from Kawasaki, which was sold at a premium price and once the agreement between the two companies expired Bajaj Auto got the engine in Avenger that looks more of modified version of Eliminator.

Currently, it appears that the Bajaj Avenger 220cc doesn’t have any other competitor than Thunderbird by the Royal Enfield although the Thunderbird is a way different one too for a comparison. Nevertheless, the price is a little higher but considering the fact that the Avenger 220cc is a cruiser available at only Rs. 69k is reasonably priced and will be perfect for all pocket size.
