First launched in 2005, Bajaj Avenger is an entry level cruiser motorcycle which has managed to create a select fan following for itself in the country.
Last year, Bajaj revamped the Avenger series, and instead of having just one motorcycle under the brand name, launched three. What this has done to Bajaj Avenger sales is that from selling about 2,500 – 3,500 units a month, the company now sells 25,000 – 30,000 units of Avenger a month.
Yes. Bajaj Avenger sales have even surpassed the expectation of Bajaj, who had aimed at selling 20,000 units of Avenger a month in India. This also means, sales of Bajaj Avenger have grown ten fold in just one year.
The three variants of Bajaj Avenger on offer in India today are – Bajaj Avenger Street 150, Bajaj Avenger Street 220, and Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220. As the name suggests, the Street 150 and Street 220 are similar in design but are powered by different engines, while the Street 220 and Cruise 220 have same engines, but feature a completely different design.
The Street series is built for the urban crowd. It gets black matte treatment with black alloys while the Cruise series gets more chrome. Riding position too has been adjusted according to the style.
Avenger Street 150 is powered by a 150 cc four stroke single cylinder air cooled engine which delivers 14.5 PS power and 12.5 Nm torque, The Street 220 and Cruise 220 are powered by a 220 cc single cylinder air cooled engine which delivers 19 PS power and 17.5 Nm torque.
All engines are now BSIV emission norm compliant.
