Bajaj Avenger 220 Street Relaunched In India
Article by Drivio | 12th May 23
It looks very similar to the Avenger 160 Street.
- It’s a city-friendly variant of the Avenger 220 Cruise.
- Gets a new, fully digital instrument console.
- Same 220cc air-cooled engine with an oil cooler.
The Avenger 220 Street is a more city-friendly version of the Avenger 220 Cruise designed for urban commuting. In fact, the 220 Cruise's Rs 1,42,029 (ex-showroom Pune) price tag too, hasn’t been altered for the 220 Cruise. This comes after the brand earlier resurrected the iconic Pulsar 220F moniker, by relaunching the bike right until the OBD 2 norms kick in. This time around though, the bike has been tinkered around a fair bit to make it better for commuting than out and out cruising.
Bajaj Avenger 220 Features:
The Avenger 220 Street shares several features with the Avenger 160 Street, including a small front cowl (instead of a huge flyscreen), a grab rail made of black alloy in place of a chrome pillion backrest, and a 17-inch front and 15-inch rear alloy wheel combination. Though both have telltale lights on the tank, the Avenger Street 220 features a much more modern looking single-pod fully digital console, rather than the Street 160's rather dated looking analogue console.
Bajaj Avenger 220 Engine:
These things said, the Avenger Street 220’s, 220cc air-cooled engine as the Avenger Cruise 220 hasn’t been tinkered with, and it still pumps out the same 19.03PS and 17.55Nm. Another similarity is in the braking system: 280mm disc up front and 130mm drum at the back, both with single-channel ABS.
The Avenger 220 Street is one of the most reasonably priced cruisers in India, with only its smaller 160cc brother undercutting it. Additionally, cruisers with comparable performance, such the Keeway K-Light 250V, cost roughly twice as much. The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is one of the alternate possibilities in a comparable price range.
