Bajaj has uncovered the 2018 Avenger 220 line-up. The new refresh Cruise and Street now highlight LED DRLs, and both get a new headlight design. Among other important changes, there’s currently an advanced instrument cluster – blue backlit on the Cruise, with a taller cover to shield it from direct sunlight, orange on the Street – containing a speedo, odo, two trip meters, fuel bar gauge and service reminder.
Some other changes are new body graphics, a visor and new grab rail for the Street, and a sissy bar with a backrest for the Cruise. Both the variants will be offered with a new paint scheme– the Street in Matte black and the Cruise in Moon White.
As of now, bikes are available at dealerships but prices are not revealed yet. What we can let you know until further notice is that the Cruise 220 will probably undercut the Suzuki Intruder (estimated at Rs 98,340, ex-showroom, Delhi) by about Rs 5,000, as will the Street 220, by a significantly greater margin.
The 220, being the higher-offering model, has gotten these progressions in front of the 150, so it can take the battle to the Intruder. Some of these increases may channel down to the refreshed Street 150, which is probably going to be uncovered in a month.
Both the bikes – the Cruise and the Street – remain mechanically unaltered. Mated to a five-speed gearbox, the 220cc, single-cylinder motor produces 18.8hp and 17.5Nm of torque. Despite the fact that we’d anticipated that would see it on this refresh, ABS has still not been presented.
