Bajaj has launched the microsite of the new Bajaj Avenger. With the motorcycle’s launch just around the corner, a few Bajaj dealerships have started accepted bookings for a token of just Rs 1,000.
Unlike the current model, the new Avenger will be available in two variants – an entry-level Avenger Street and a chrome-laden Avenger Cruise. Contrary to the previous rumours, the new Bajaj Avenger will not be offered with the 200cc triple spark engine from the Pulsar 200NS. Bajaj seems to have decided to stick with the tried and tested 220cc single-cylinder twin spark unit, which comes mated to a five-speed transmission. The engine, which has been borrowed from the Pulsar 220, has been detuned to produce 19bhp and 17Nm of torque, to suit the laid back character of a cruiser.
Bajaj has already commenced the dealer despatch and service training for the new Avenger. With the new motorcycle, we expect Bajaj to offer a host of optional accessories to up the bling factor of the motorcycle, especially for the Avenger Cruise. With the comprehensive set of cosmetic changes that it gets we can expect the price tag of the new models to escalate close to the Rs 1 lakh mark. We can expect more details to be revealed as we get closer to the launch date of October 27.
