Bajaj Avenger 220 Street Review

13 Jun, 2016 09:25 PM

Overview

Bajaj is back on the news with its all new machine, the Bajaj Avenger Street 220. The expectations from Bajaj has been perfectly overdone this time, making the newcomer look more like a premium cruiser from a bigger segment of motorcycles. The Street 220 gets its very special place in the hearts of cruiser lovers and brings life back to the Avenger nameplate. Underpinnings being same as its cousin, both of them are like north and south when compared to each other.

What's New

The Avenger 220 Street gets an all new Matte Black paint shade with matching dark theme alloy wheels. It comes with a blackened street control handlebar, wider rear tyre and a new semi digital speedometer pod. The brand new logo sits with the Avenger name within its casing. The front suspension gets a cover and the rear backrest goes missing from the Street version.

Design and Style

Many of the Bajaj fans would literally think that they have won a jackpot after buying the Avenger 220 Street. This comes due to its hard resemblance with the Harley's entry level cruiser, the Street 750. Even the names are close, making the Avenger feel dearer to the American motorcycle maker. The basic resembling view is the side-view whereas the front and rear easily differentiates the bike from other cruisers.

The alloy design can be blamed for this upcoming controversy as it makes it loose its identity. The seats look perfect for a cruiser and the back support for the pillion goes missing this time, adding a grab-rail only. The word Street has been justified as it losses on some real comforts like footsteps and longer handlebars. The dark theme makes the new Street 220 a head-turner for its segment. All the chrome parts have been perfectly shadowed in this new Street avatar.

Dimensions and Weight

The Bajaj Avenger 220 Street measures 2177 mm in length, 801 mm in width and 1070 mm in height. It gets a wheelbase of 1490 mm and comes with 169 mm of ground clearance. The bike weighs 150 kg. The seat height for the bike is 725 mm.

Instrument Console

The instrument console on the new 220 Street has been practically divided into two pods. The bigger pod on the handlebar assembly gets an analogue speedometer with a small LED display for odometer and trip-meter readings. The other pod has been placed on the fuel tank and co-incidentally, it is an analogue fuel indicator. The arrangement is neat and looks very good on the dark appeal of the motorcycle.

Engine and Gearbox

The engine on the new Avenger 220 Street is the same 219.9cc, 4-Stroke, Single Cylinder unit with maximum power and maximum torque of 18.8 Bhp (19.03 PS) and 17.5 Nm respectively. The gearbox is a 5-speed unit and the Avenger feels more like a newly dressed machine than an all new bike.

Performance and Mileage

The Avenger 220 Street performs really well with its approximate 115-120 kmph of top speed. It gets a high performance DTS-i engine returning an approximate mileage of around 30-40 kmpl. With just 2 kg increase in its weight over the 150 cc version, 220 Street gets excellent running dynamics.

Brakes and Suspension

Avenger Street 220 comes with a single front disc brake only. It was expected with a rear disc brake but unfortunately missed on the same. The front suspension is telescopic forks covered with rubber coils whereas the rear gets hydraulic shock absorbers for both sides. The tyre size for the front stays 90/90-17 whereas the rear gets a fat 130/90-15 tyre. This makes the bike more stable and increases its overall street appeal.

Comfort and Safety

New Avenger 220 Street comes with low seat height, further pushing it good with its cushioned wide seat for a comfortable ride. The pillion gets a grab-rail option and the bike comes with a short, street based handlebar for commanding sitting posture. It gets bigger tyres, better braking and a list of accessories for a safe journey every time.

Shades and Ex-showroom Price

The dark appeal Avenger 220 Street is available in just Matt Black shade. The price has been kept at INR 85,500 (ex-showroom Delhi). The whole new phenomenon of segment distribution by Bajaj has made it easy for the customer to choose a product from each one on the list.

Verdict

The Avenger 220 Street is a whole different world in its own. It gets a powerful appeal from its performance as well as styling parts. It surely wins over many of the current day cruisers from the large capacity segments with its darkness inspired theme. The price gets clearly justified with its range of features.
