The 2016 Bajaj Avenger FLG (marketing tagline which reads “Feel Like God”) is all set to be launched on 27th of this month in three new variants. Spyshots of Avenger Cruise 220 and Avenger Street 220 variants have already surfaced at the dealerships but the third variant continues to be a mystery.
A media report suggested that the third variant could be the Avenger 150. Coming back to the two variants that are already leaked, the Avenger Cruise 220 will target riders who prefer the old school chrome enriched character whereas the Avenger Street 220, with its black alloy wheels and engine, will appeal to an entirely different audience base.
Both models feature no noticeable change bodywork but the color theme on the fuel tank and badges are new. We also expect the 2016 Avenger to sport new instrument dial.
Expect the 220 cc variants to continue with the single-cylinder liquid-cooled carbureted mill which is good for 19.03 PS and 17.5 Nm of torque. The 5-speed transmission, in all probability, will be retained.
Bajaj has kicked off its social media campaign with a teaser of the cruiser’s new fuel tank decals. The official Avenger website too has started a countdown for the launch. The automaker is using this tagline to market the 2016 Avenger – “Feel Like God”.
