Bajaj Auto Company designed its cruise-type motorbikes under the name Bajaj Avenger. The production started in India and since the year 2006 there exist 3 versions: Avenger 180, 200 and 220. All the versions are similar to each other. The predecessor of Avenger lineup is Eliminator model. The engine of this bike was modified so as to give it to Avengers.
The power plant of first versions was a four-stroke cycle, air-cooled engine with the capacity of 219 cc, able to produce 19 Bhp. The engine is coupled to five-speed transmission. The bike’s maximum speed of 120 km pro hour seems to be too low despite the engine’s possible performance. One of the drawbacks of the motorbike is its acceleration, which can’t outperform the closest rivals of Avenger. The overall results of experts’ reviews tell us that the motorbike is a quick one, but everyday rides through heavy traffic make the vehicle not very capable. But on e of the strongest sides of the handling is the brakes, which are very sensitive and respond quickly to the need to stop.
The generations of the lineup were greatly modified to make the long ride comfortable. Being a cruiser, the latest Avengers provide wider, more comfortable seats. The previous models lacked the comfort of new Avenger 220. Now the driver feels better, while the aerodynamics were significantly improved to provide a better air resistance for the pilot.
Round headlamps provide good visibility of the road in the dark. Other elements of the exterior can’t boast any specific features, but the storage bins lack the space for luggage. Designers tried hard to make the motorbike as light as possible. The overall weight is 154.5 kg. The latest versions of Avenger are equipped with aluminum levers, wheels and instrument panels with chrome finishes.
The comfort of the bike and the power of the engine are very decent. That is why the bike is rather a desirable vehicle. And some features, like rear-view rectangular mirrors add some stylish note to the overall design of Avenger. The bike looks classy and reliable.
