We brought you the comparison between the Avenger 150 and the Suzuki Gixxer SF a few weeks back (you can read it HERE). So, while the Avenger 150 is a new category for Bajaj to enter, it has been operating with the 220cc engine for eons. But, the motorcycle’s sales had stopped growing. Its competitor on the other hand, the Royal Enfield range of bikes has been growing in numbers and strength with every passing month. So, to tackle this, Bajaj is now offering the Avenger 220 in two forms – the Street and the Cruise. The Cruise, as its name suggests, is meant for touring along with being a bike for the daily grind; a need the Thunderbird 350 currently addresses. Enough reason really for us to compare the two to find out which deserves to be in your garage.
The new Avenger 220 Cruise and the Avenger 220 Street are examples of Bajaj’s ingenuity. They are here to rejuvenate the long-standing Avenger brand. While the models are similar under the skin, the Avenger 220 Cruise and the Avenger 220 Street are targeted at slightly different sets of buyers.
