Bajaj Avenger Street 180, Cruise 220 ABS launch soon

Bajaj tease the launch of its ABS equipped Avenger Street 180 and Cruise 220 models

Early in January 2019, Bajaj updated its Avenger Cruise 220 and Avenger Street 220 models with a single-channel ABS unit. And now – going by what seems like an official poster – the company has revealed that the Avenger Street 180 is all set to be updated with a similar unit in the coming weeks. A similar poster also shows that the Cruise 220 ABS will be officially launched soon, too. Dealers revealed that the Avenger Cruise 220 ABS is priced at Rs 1.02 lakh (ex-showroom, Pune), a Rs 6,700 hike over its non-ABS variant. A similar increase can be expected on the current price tag of Rs 86,611 on the Avenger Street 180 (ex-showroom, Pune).

It is unlikely that the Street 180 and Cruise 220 will receive any other updates besides the safety feature. The Street 180 is powered by a 180cc, single-cylinder engine that produces 15.5hp at 8,500rpm and 13.7Nm at 6,500rpm, and is one of the most affordable motorcycles in the entry-level cruiser segment. Once equipped with ABS, the bike will take on its closest competitor – the Intruder 150 ABS (Rs 1,02 lakh, ex-showroom Pune) – on a more level playing field.

The Cruise 220, on the other hand, is powered by a single-cylinder 220cc engine that makes 19hp at 8,400rpm and 17.5Nm of torque at 7,000rpm.

With the mandatory ABS deadline of April 1, 2019, just around the corner, the non-ABS variants of the bike will be discontinued
