The Bajaj Avenger has been around, in some form or the other, for more than a decade. A favourite among those who want a comfortable and powerful commuter bike with low seat height, the Avenger has stayed in vogue over all these years, immune to the latest fads. And as a budget cruiser, it has hardly had any serious competition.
Earlier this year, Bajaj gave the entry-level Avenger a fresh lease of life with an 180cc powertrain and a bunch of visual upgrades. One of the reasons for this upgrade is the new kid on the block – the Suzuki Intruder. This bike sports a relatively higher price tag, but also promises all the perks and the bells and whistles of a modern streetfighter. One of our favourite streetfighters, for that matter – the Suzuki Gixxer. Clearly, the Bajaj Avenger Street 180 has its work cut out.
