Bajaj Avenger 160 Review

20 Oct, 2022 10:34 AM

Detailed Review by Maxabout Team


The Bajaj Avenger, by Bajaj Auto India, is a popular cruise-style motorcycle. The first-gen bike of the Bajaj Avenger series was launched in 2005, and since then, all the bikes from this lineup, like the Avenger 180, 200, and 220, have gained immense popularity in the country. After the successful venture of first-gen bikes, the brand introduced the second-gen series with the all-new Avenger Street 150 in 2015. Later in May 2019, the homegrown two-wheeler maker debuted the Bajaj Avenger Street 160 ABS bike with a lively paint scheme comprising Spicy Red and Ebony Black shades. Over the years, Bajaj kept updating the bike, and as of now, the BS6-compliant model is available for sale in India.

Bajaj Avenger 160 Street Design & Style

To begin with, the new Avenger 160 ABS shares the same design as the Avenger 180. In fact, if the 'Avenger 160' logo on the centre panel is hidden, it is impossible to differentiate the new bike from its predecessor. As a street variation, the bike gets the aluminium components present on typical cruisers, and we must add that the blacked-out parts make it appear more urban.

The front fascia of the bike gets a halogen headlight with an LED DRL sitting beneath. The headlight gets a compact mask, which has no functionality and just adds to the beauty of the bike. The teardrop-shaped fuel tank with Avenger graphics looks elegant. The single-piece saddle is well-cushioned and is comfy for both the rider and the pillion, and the new Bajaj Avenger 160 Street also gets a backrest.

Bajaj Avenger 160 Colour Options

Bajaj Avenger 160 Street Instrument Console

The instrument console unit in the bike comes fitted with a single-pod instrument console with an analogue speedometer that offers statistics including a trip metre and odometer. However, the instrument cluster misses a tachometer. The fuel gauge, as well as the tell-tale lights for neutral, indicators, and high beam, are tank-mounted and a little difficult to see. The ignition is given on the side, which is a unique feature and is easy to use, but you need to unlock the handle from the front and it hinders the practicality.

Bajaj Avenger 160 Street Engine & Gearbox

As far as the powertrain is concerned, the 2023 Bajaj Avenger 160 Street gets power from the 160cc, single-cylinder, Twin Spark DTS-i, fuel-injected, 4-stroke, SOHC, 2-valve, air-cooled engine that is more refined and churns out 15 HP at 8500 rpm and 13.7 Nm of torque at 7000 rpm. This engine is coupled with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The engine feels and sounds the same as its siblings on the road. As a result, it's rather audible. When you get to the mid-range, the vibrations start to creep in. Furthermore, when the engine is cranked higher, the vibrations get more intense.

Bajaj Avenger 160 Street Brakes, Suspension & Tyres

In terms of braking duties, it has a rear 130mm drum brake and a front 280mm disc brake. As an added safety feature, it includes a single-channel ABS (anti-lock braking system). The motorcycle is suspended on a telescopic with a double anti-friction bush at the front and a 5-step adjustable twin shock absorber at the rear. The bike smoothens the road's disparities effectively, and you don't feel it on your back.

Larger potholes, on the other hand, should be avoided, especially at high speeds. The Avenger 160 has low suspension travel since it is a cruiser, and riding rapidly over broken roads may greatly unsettle the cruiser bike. It rides on 17-inch alloy wheels which are wrapped in 90/90-17 49P front and 130/90-15 66P rear tubeless tyres.

Bajaj Avenger 160 Street Top Speed & Mileage

As for performance, the 160cc cruiser can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in 17.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 105 km/h which is speedo-indicated. In the real world, the mileage figures of the bike may reach 50-53 kmpl on the highways and return to 42-45 km/l in city traffic.

Bajaj Avenger 160 Street Ex-Showroom Price & On-Road Price

The current ex-showroom price of the 2023 Bajaj Avenger 160 Street starts at Rs 1.12 lakh. While the on-road price is Rs 1.29 lakh in Delhi, Rs 1.33 lakh in Mumbai, Rs 1.30 lakh in Kolkata, and Rs 1.32 lakh in Chennai. However, these are only estimated prices and we suggest you visit the nearest authorised dealership for the exact on-road price depending on the region.

The ex-showroom price is the vehicle's production cost + dealer/seller profit + GST (Goods and Services Tax) + transportation charges (from the manufacturing plant to the dealership). The On-Road Price, on the other hand, is the real amount you pay to the dealership to make the vehicle roadworthy. It includes the ex-showroom price in your city, as well as RTO charges (vehicle registration), a one-time road tax, and insurance charges.

The On-Road Price also includes extra items such as Genuine Accessories and an Extended Warranty when purchasing a vehicle. Please keep in mind that the On-Road Price varies greatly across India due to various percentages for State Registration Charges.

Bajaj Avenger 160 Street Competitors

In the Indian market, the bikes with similar features to the new Bajaj Avenger 160 Street are Bajaj Pulsar NS160, Suzuki Intruder 150, Hero Xtreme 160R, Honda XBlade 160, Hero Xpulse 200 and the TVS Apache RTR 2V.

Verdict - Should You Buy Bajaj Avenger 160 Street or not?

The entry-level 2023 Bajaj Avenger 160 Street remains the most reasonable cruiser bike with an ABS option in the country, and that gives it a real Bajaj significance at heart, as all of their models strive to offer the best value for money in their respective niches. If you desire a budget-friendly street cruiser for easy cruising and long-distance travel, you should definitely consider purchasing the new Bajaj Avenger Street 160.

Questions and Answers

Most Popular Answers for Bajaj Avenger 160
Is the back suspension good or bad in Bajaj Avenger 160?
08 September 2023 11:24

Bajaj Avenger Street 160 offers comfortable ride quality. The simple suspension system - telescopic forks and twin rear shock absorbers - works amazingly well on bad roads, as long as you don’t try and tackle very large bumps at speed. As you’d expect from a cruiser, suspension travel isn’t the longest, so it can bottom out on really nasty potholes. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort.

For how long is the warranty valid on the Avenger Street 160 bs6?
26 January 2023 11:01
The Bajaj Avenger Street 160 BS6 comes with a standard warranty of 5 years or 75,000 Kms, whichever comes first. The warranty covers any manufacturing defect and is applicable only if the motorcycle is serviced as per the manufacturer's instructions.
Which is the preferable choice for city rides and occasional long-distance journeys - the Bajaj Avenger 160 or the Yamaha FZX?
26 January 2023 10:59
The Avenger 160 is a great urban cruiser, with its sharp agility making it a great machine for darting through city traffic. However, its long wheelbase does limit its corner-carving abilities, making it more of a highway tourer than a corner-carving machine. The FZ-X on the other hand, has a much more commuter-friendly stance, with its taller handlebars and forward-set footpegs. However, this comes at a slight cost in terms of highway performance, with the bike feeling strained at speeds above 80-85kmph. Its highway efficiency is also slightly lower than its city efficiency. Ultimately, if you're looking for a machine that's great for urban commuting, the Avenger 160 is an excellent choice, while the FZ-X is better suited for short, city-based rides. To get an accurate picture of each bike's performance and riding comfort, we suggest taking a test ride before making a decision.
Is it possible to increase the rear wheel size of Avenger Street 160 from 15 inches to 16 inches?
26 January 2023 10:55
When it comes to Bajaj Avenger Street 160, the ideal tyre size is Front:-90/90-17 and Rear:- 130/90-15. However, upsizing the tyres is an option, but this may lead to some changes in the vehicle's performance. If you replace a part with a different spec, other related parts may also require replacement. A wider tyre may start brushing against the swingarm, leading to accelerated wear and tear compared to usual. This can also cause a decrease in performance, such as decreased fuel economy and top speed. Furthermore, a bigger contact patch with the surface leads to higher effort required to move the bike.
Is the rear suspension adjustable in avenger street 160? If yes, how do I decide/choose a setting for riding with my family?
26 January 2023 10:54
The Bajaj Avenger Street 160 comes equipped with 5-step adjustable Twin shock absorbers (Rear Suspension). This system of telescopic forks and twin rear shock absorbers offers great performance on rough roads and is less likely to bottom out on larger bumps. The well-padded seat prevents the rider and the pillion from feeling any jolts and there is an option to soften the rear suspension for a smoother ride. However, the bike can tend to feel wobbly at high speeds on cambered roads. While enthusiasts may prefer a stiffer setup, this budget cruiser is an option made with the everyday rider in mind and it is capable of doing its job admirably. To get a better sense of performance and comfort, we recommend taking a test ride.

Totally Actual Review About Best Cruiser Bike Under 1 Lac Budget

Anurag Tripathi | 5 years ago

Version Reviewed - Avenger street 150 Purchased As - Brand new (01-01-2016) Distance Covered - 5538 Km till date (26-28-2016) Fuel Economy - 50 kmpl (Totally run in city traffic) Good - Looks, performance, handling, comfort, safety. Bad - No rear disc brake. No kick. I purchased my brand new avenger 150 street in 1st jan 2016 and till date I already clocked It around 5500 km done total running in Kanpur city Only. Exterior Aggressive front look and cool side look although rear tyre is small but decent could use a day light running lamp. Engine Performance: 14 PS power is good you can feel it when you accelerate it easily takes pick up (Not great as Apache, Gixxer) but even after you have reached triple speed figure effortless easy to drive in traffic and fun to cruise on highway. I tested the top speed of my avenger 150 twice on highway. at first it clock 112 km/hr and after second service it clocks at 115 km/hr. Fuel Economy: This is the best feature of this bike. and the only reason to submit my review also. before 1st service I got an average of around 35 kmpl in city. after 1st service mileage increased to 40-45 kmpl. But after 2nd service it reached to 55 kmpl in the hard city traffic. Guys believe me currently it giving me a healthy 55 kmpl mileage in a tight city traffic. I also tested mileage 3 times after 2nd service from reserve to reserve I take 100 rs fuel each time and my bike covered 78km, 81km, 80km on the three testing while the price of petrol in Kanpur is 65 Rs/ltr. Ride Quality & Handling: Ride Quality is very good you don't get tired even after long city driving. Handling is very good very reactive and cornering can be done with confidence. only the turning radius is too large compare to other. it creates some problem in city traffic. Final Words: Overall a very very good package for a fair price deal under the 1 lac segment.

Best Features: Look, comfort, mileage, uniqueness

Pros: Looks, ride comfort, mileage

Cons: No disc brake in rear wheel, no kick, no storage

I bought the Avenger 150 model last week. The bike as a whole is absolutely fantastic. I found the short pick-up to be a bit less, but that's not what you are looking for in this bike, & in no way that is a disadvantage. Comfort level, top notch .. balance, top notch. Also, the problem with a big turning radius owing to much wider handle-bar for the Cruise model has been largely taken care of in the Street models. In short, if you want to go for speed, you have the Pulsars .. for everything else, you have the Avengers.

Best Features: Suspension, comparatively lighter chassis, back wheel-base.

Pros: Power, comfort, balance.

Cons: Absence of kick.
