Bajaj Avenger Street 160 (Avenger 180 Replacement) Officially Launched

Bajaj has finally launched the Avenger Street 160 at INR 82,253 (ex-showroom Delhi). The bike features single-channel ABS and has replaced the Avenger 180 which was approximately INR 6000 costly than the newly launched Street 160. The cruiser motorcycle is available in two colours: Spicy Red and Ebony Black. [caption id="attachment_503915" align="aligncenter" width="749"]Avenger Street 160 in Ebony Black Avenger Street 160 in Ebony Black[/caption] Bajaj Avenger Street 160 is powered by a 160.4cc single cylinder, air-cooled motor and it is able to produce an output which is comparable to the power and torque figures of Avenger 180. It is because it uses the same engine that is available on the Pulsar NS160. The engine produces 15 HP of power at 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 13.5 Nm at 7000 rpm. Apart from the new engine, everything on the bike remains the same as the 180cc Avenger. It uses the same chassis setup with the same dimensions. Even the ground clearance of the Avenger Street 160 remains the same at 177mm. The kerb weight of the bike stands at 150kg, which is also exactly the same as the now-discontinued 180cc Avenger model. The bike also misses the all-digital instrumentation as we have seen on the Avenger 220. The Avenger Street 160 uses an analogue-digital instrument console to keep the costs in check. [caption id="attachment_503916" align="aligncenter" width="777"]Avenger Street 160 in Spicy Red Avenger Street 160 in Spicy Red[/caption] One of the main reasons that the company has chosen to replace Street 180 with Street 160 is because the 180cc and 220cc motorcycles were too close to each other in terms of price. So, with the launch of the new 160cc Avenger, the brand would be able to target the customers in a better way. This will also help Bajaj Auto to differentiate the two models significantly. Around this price tag, the new Avenger Street 160 has only one direct rival that is the Suzuki Intruder which starts at INR 1.01 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Avenger Street 160 with ABS provides contemporary styling whilst retaining its classical roadster design. The discerning customer gets a definite step-up into the world of classic biking. This will open up choices to the entry-level sport's customers."

Is it possible to increase the rear wheel size of Avenger Street 160 from 15 inches to 16 inches?
2023-01-26 10:55:46 AM
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.
