Suzuki Intruder BS6 vs Bajaj Avenger Street 160 BS6: Competition Check

Bajaj Auto may have dropped the Avenger Street 220 from its product portfolio, but the company has retained the lower displacement variant of the motorcycle, the Avenger Street 160, during the BS6 transition. The 160cc cruiser motorcycle from Bajaj Auto rivals the SuzukiIntruder. Here we compare the technical specifications, features and prices of both motorcycles for an on-paper comparison.

Styling

Bajaj Auto has opted for a relatively traditional cruiser design for the Avenger Street 160. Styling cues include a round headlight with an LED DRL, tank-mounted fuel gauge and a single-piece step-up seat. The pillion grab-rail gets a rubber coating in the centre to provide some cushion to the passenger. The relatively flatter handlebar adds a pinch of sportiness to the riding position.

The Suzuki Intruder, on the other hand, features a more modern design. The dual-tone finish further enhances the muscular styling of the motorcycle. The 155cc Suzuki comes equipped with projector-style LED DRL, an LED taillight, split-style seats, a premium pillion backrest and a twin-exhaust setup. Similar to the Avenger Street 160, the Suzuki Intruder, too, uses a relatively flatter handlebar that offers sporty yet comfortable ergonomics.

Features

The feature list on the Bajaj Avenger Street 160 is relatively lower-spec than the Suzuki Intruder. The instrument cluster on the Avenger Street 160, for example, is a semi-digital unit. The Intruder, in comparison, features a fully-digital instrument cluster with a gear-position indicator. The switchgear on both motorcycles offers similar functions, although the unit on the Intruder looks more premium than the buttons on the Avenger Street 160.

Engine

While the Bajaj Avenger Street 160 packs relatively fewer features than the Suzuki Intruder, the former makes up for the difference in the power output department. The 160cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine on the Avenger Street 160 makes 14.79bhp of power and 13.7Nm of torque. In comparison, the Suzuki Intruder uses a 155cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder motor that produces 13.41bhp of power and 13.8Nm of torque. Do note that the Intruder (152kg) is slightly lighter than the Avenger Street 160 (156kg).
