The new Bajaj Avenger is all set to launch later today in not one but three variants. You can watch all the action live here. The long overdue product update is aimed at injecting a new lease of life into what is the most affordable cruiser in the country.
Out of the three variants, two 220 cc models have already been spied more than once but the third model which is expected to powered by a 150 cc engine is still eluding. The new Avenger Cruise 220 would be the mid-level variant, sporting spoke wheels, chrome front fender and several other shiny elements. The range-topping Avenger Street 220 boasts of black alloy wheels, black finish for the engine and other cycle parts, exclusive tank decals and so on.

There are no other significant visual changes to the cruiser which is now available only with a 220 cc engine. We expect the single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor to continue pushing out 19.03 PS and 17.5 Nm of torque. Transmission will be a 5-speed unit. The 150 cc mill could very well be the air-cooled unit that powers the Pulsar AS150 but we will know for sure by noon today.
With the new Bajaj Avenger, the company is looking to increase the monthly sales volume of the nameplate from around 4,000 units to 9,000 units.
