The Avenger Cruise 220 is slightly larger than the Street 220. It measures 2,210 mm in length, 806 mm in width and has a height of 1,142 mm. The overall length of the Street 220 is 2,177 mm and its width and height are 801 mm and 1,070 mm respectively. Both bikes have the same wheelbase (1,490 mm) and ground clearance (169 mm), however the Cruise 220 weighs 159 kg, which is 9 kg more than the Street 220. Also, the Cruise 220 has a 13-litre fuel tank while the Street 220 can hold 14 litres of fuel.

In terms of styling, the Cruise 220 gets a triangular headlamp finished in chrome and has integrated LED DRLs. The bike features a windshield and a single-pod digital instrument cluster finished in chrome as is the trim around the fuel filler. Further, the bike gets raised handle bars, chrome mirrors and knee guard, stepped seat with rear backrest and a chrome exhaust. The oil-cooler for the engine also gets a chrome shroud. The Cruise 220 has conventional telescopic front forks and twin rear shock absorbers. It rides on wire spoke wheels.

The Street 220 gets a round headlamp with integrated LED DRLs and a tinted shroud, black telescopic front forks with rubber gaiters. The engine, crankcase, exhaust, indicator housings, oil cooler shroud, knee guard, instrument pod and fuel tank trim are all finished in black. The Street 220 has a stepped seat and black grab handle. Unlike the Cruise 220, the Street 220 gets short handlebars and black mirrors. Also, it rides on black alloy wheels. Both bikes get a redesigned tail fender and a new tail lamp. According to Bajaj, the new Avenger range gets a revised suspension with 12% more travel.

Both bikes are powered by a 220 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled DTS-i engine with an oil-cooler. The engine produces 18.76 BHP @ 8,400 rpm and 17.5 Nm of torque @ 7,000 rpm and is paired with a 5-speed gearbox. The bikes come equipped with a 260 mm front disc brake and a 130 mm drum at the rear.

Avenger Cruise 220 is available in 2 colour options - Auburn Black and Moon White, while the Street 220 comes in Matte Black and Matte White shades.

Quite an old product.

However, after looking at the Intruder 150 and seeing it's prices - Avenger looks like a complete steal now.

ABS would have made it a complete package for the price.

Couldn't agree more on this. Why on earth are these manufacturers launching the so-called revised models without ABS! At least, when you are putting some efforts in refreshing the model, why can't they invest in areas that matter the most.

Also, they could have blackened the silverish looking rim around the headlight too. Kinda looks odd with the rest of the bike in black.

One shouldn't forget that Bajaj is a mass market player and that the 220 is their second biggest engine, after the Dominar. Safety features aren't what matter to mass market manufactures yet in our country. So unless the government makes it mandatory or competition introduces ABS, Bajaj doesn't see a "need" for ABS!

However, due credit should be given to them for introducing the Dominar with optional ABS. Different marketing teams maybe!

A difference of approx. Rs. 5000 as compared to the old model.

Certainly agreed that Bajaj is a mass market player but Avenger 220 is not at all what the mass is going after. As per www.autopunditz.com, they sold 2874 of these.

Another thing to note is that, if someone is looking for a cruiser kind of ride but cannot afford a Harley, this is the only option available in the market which a common man can buy. So adding such safety feature will take them a long way.

Probably, Bajaj is taking advantage of the situation since they know there was no real competition in this segment and price range till the Intruder was launched.

Ride Safe

Dont know how long Bajaj is going with this EL125 platform with new cosmetic updates ! No doubt its the only affordable cruiser in the market at this price range. ABS would have been great offering may be for top end variant.
I have Avenger 220, 2012 and TB 350 as well but the confidence level & braking control at higher speed is a big distinction and TB 350 scores well.
The brake pedal position and drowsy steering adds some discomfort as well , that might be because of packaging limitations of the platform and caster limitations.
Brake pedal position is at some offset from the ankle plane causing requirement of brake application by corner of the foot which again results into discomfort.
I can suggest foot-board instead of foot rest as like it was in Yamaha Enticer and the pedal position just above the plane of foot board.

How difficult this is to implement? I own the original eliminator and would like to add this in addition to changing the shocks to that of gas ones.

Hi,
I just wish that bajaj would come out with a 400cc or 600 cc based on the Avenger platform with front and rear discs, abs, wider/fatter rear tires to pit it against the mid range harleys etc. I own a 220 Avenger and its grossly under powered. The above would certainly be my wish list...Of course with decent pricing levels. :-)

This is already in works, but not sure when this will be launched.

Agreed that it would be great to have such a cruiser from an Indian manufacturer. But more power requires more stability/control which must be able to install that confidence to the rider and all this increases cost of the machine and maintenance in the long run. It might just not be worth it. Our manufacturers aren't fascinated to manufacture that breed of machines yet. Not even customisation options thus far.

Under powered? And what speeds do you think you could do in your Avenger or even if there exists a 400/600cc ones with safety in mind?

Next gen Avenger series may get launched in 2020, with new engines that will be BS VI compliant.

Avenger 220 ABS to be priced at 1.02L

Quote:
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.

Isn't ABS mandatory from March 2019? I wonder if there's any benefit of manufacturing something with it becoming non compliant in a couple of months.
