Bajaj Avenger 200 Street
Caught on camera a couple of times, Bajaj avenger Street -- a modified version of the current Avenger in the market -- seemed to have received Harley Davidson Street 750 styling with new black colour theme treatment. From the pictures that we have seen so far, Avenger 220 Street is expected to get new black alloys, black engine and a black exhaust along with 'Street' badging and red graphics.
As for the engine, although there were rumours that the new Avenger could get Pulsar 200Ns engine, the spy shots confirmed that the power will come from the same 220cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke, air-cooled engine of the current one in the market. Currently, the cruiser Avenger draws power from a 220cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke, air-cooled engine sourced from Pulsar 220 capable of churning out 19bhp at 8,400rpm and 17.5Nm of torque at 7,000rpm.
Bajaj Avenger 220 Cruise
The second Avenger edition, which is expected to make its debut on Tuesday, is also likely to be powered by the same 220cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke, air-cooled engine of the current model. The Avenger Cruise is most likely to have only paint job and graphics in terms of styling changes. The images had shown that there will be Cruise 220 badge on the side panel as well as on the fuel tank. The motorcycle could also get chrome-touch and revised pillion back support.
Bajaj Avenger 150
This is the only edition that is expected to come with a major change on the mechanical front. Bajaj avenger 150, the cruiser with smaller engine, is expected to come with Bajaj Pulsar 150, which is 149cc 4-stroke, DTS-i, air cooled, single cylinder mill that has the capacity to develop 14.8bhp of power and 12.5Nm of torque.
