Bajaj refreshed its Avenger lineup with the all-new Street 220 and Cruise 220, both sporting many new updates and changes.
The Bajaj Avenger now has two models powered by the 220cc engine, the Street 220 and the Cruise 220. Both feature many updates and equipment that differentiate between the two models.
The Avenger Street is the modern cruiser for those who know that comfort and power can coexist.
2018 Bajaj Avenger Street 220
The new Bajaj Street 220 gets a new headlamp with a new design that also sports integrated LED daytime running lights. There is also a small windshield as well, which all adds to the new Roadster design. The new Street 220 also gets new badging on the tank as well, but the rest of the graphics and paint schemes remain the same as of the old bike.
A new matte white shade is also available, with matching contrast graphics. Also the front forks are now covered with black gaiters as well which shield the fork seals from stones and dust. There is less of chrome on the bike with the Street 220 getting more of the black treatment.
2018 Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220
Coming to the Bajaj Cruise 220, the bike sports a more classic look with a period styled headlight that skips on the LED daytime running lights. There is more chrome on the Cruise with the silencer, engine bay and headlight, with all skipping the black treatment seen on the Street line. Front forks are exposed as well with no gaiters.
The Avenger Cruise is the classic cruiser for those who seek liberation with the twist of a throttle.
There are two unique colour options available for the Cruise 220. Auburn Black and Moon White are exclusively available only for the Bajaj Avenger 220 Cruise. A windshield takes main preference at the front, that shows the touring intent of the bike, shielding the rider from wind blast.
Both bikes feature an all-new fully digital instrument console that offers lots of information to the rider. There is also the additional information cluster as well on the tank. There is also a wider rear tyre and a new comfort handlebar for more comfort while riding.
Mechanically though, the 2018 Avengers still retain the 220cc, single-cylinder engine that produces 18.8hp and 17.5Nm of torque. No ABS was also introduced. All these nifty changes make the Avenger more up to date and an attractive proposition now. And more importantly still come out on top when going against the new rival on the block, the Suzuki Intruder 150!
Too lazy to type anything, so re quoting from the best F1 driver in the world:
“On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit'. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.”
