ABS-equipped variants of the Avenger Cruise 220 and Street 220 both sport the same price tag.
The Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220 ABS variant was recently spotted and we’ve now gotten information that both the models in the Avenger 220 line-up – the Street 220 and Cruise 220 – have received the update and are both priced at Rs 1,02,425. The non-ABS version of the bikes cost Rs 95,705 (all prices, ex-showroom Pune) so the ABS update comes at an increase of a little over Rs 6,700.
We believe this will be the single-channel ABS unit that’s also seen on the Pulsar RS200 and NS200. It will continue to be powered by a single-cylinder 220cc engine that makes 19hp at 8,400rpm and 17.5Nm of torque at 7,000rpm.
The Avenger series is one of the few motorcycles in the entry-level cruiser segment. The other bike that completes the Avenger series is the smaller-capacity Street 180. This is yet to receive an ABS update and once it does, will take on its closest competitor – the Intruder 150 ABS (Rs 1,02 lakh, ex-showroom Pune) – on a more level playing field.
While the updated bikes are yet to reach dealerships, a couple of them have begun to accept bookings and are expected to receive the bikes in the coming weeks.
