I bought this beauty in 2010, after its reincarnation the erstwhile Kawasaki-Bajaj Eliminator. It the Bajaj Avenger in June and there was a subsequent engine I was looking forward to a change my Hero Honda CBZ and was eager to go for a Indian cruiser.

Looks and

Falling in love with the is not your choice as it happens The unending chrome work on the and the old school mono gauge on the give the 220 DTS-i a decent stance. But, what I was this nice gizmo on the which held a better LED cluster than the outgoing The overall looks of the bike–the seat, classic backrest and the low body stance–almost get the recipe for a cruiser.

But I strongly feel that could have improved as the handle lacks feel and the start feeling cheap as as you ignite the engine with quirky button on the right

Front End design

Okay, one here, I fell in the love this bike when I saw the poster showing a bunch of cruising on Bajaj Avengers and the was taken from the front. The looks best when you at it from the front. You will not the clear lens treatment as its tiny headlamp and blinkers, the gauge and so the rear view blind you with sheen.

The disc on the front wheel unmistakably good and the newly mini radiator gives the an upmarket look. The leg guard at a low position, adding to the heavy of the bike. Wish Bajaj place the number plate on the itself.

Overall, the bike looks perfect from the front but the windscreen will turn heads than anything cleaning it, is a pain though.

End/Tail design

The rear does not carry those LEDs we’ve come to these days but still to sync well with the design. Also, the word engraved on the backrest looks and shouts I-am-no-less-than-a-Harley. So does the fat exhaust pipe. But the biggest on the rear end is the giant tyre comes factory fitted, the 220 DTS-i that indestructible

Drawing cues from the Eliminator made styling an USP for Bajaj as this bike does not have any competition in price bracket.

Other design elements

of chrome, bulges on the side and design of the bike make it all the desirable. At least till the you drive one!

Engine and

Engine was one of the major driving in my decision to buy this machine. As I wanted a young, quick for this lazy looking, sized motorcycle. I wanted the to be quick and easy to handle. housed a 220 DTS-i, the most thing Bajaj has produced that date was enough of a for me to buy this bike.

The engine quick and responsive, and makes you for a while that you are driving a cruiser bike. It’s what doctors would prescribed.

Ride quality and handling

quality is a big letdown and so is handling. are the only two things about the which will take your smile in case you are like God” on this The ride is pretty bumpy, to the low quality suspension, and the frame and absorbers which, at times, you feel like you are riding an Goldline. Phew!

Handling doesn’t give you any reason to as the low quality handle bar lacks and the ultra low turning radius to the chaos. The low lying body doesn’t let you lean too much, it a pain to maneuver in the city However, on the highway, it feels and the cushion for the pillion rider one to ride on for 100 kms without tiring.

Fuel efficiency and Maintenance

efficiency was not on my checklist when I was to buy a bike but it has not given me shivers so far on matter. The Avenger manages to a good 35-40 Kmpl if in the right gear in city and can touch almost 50 Kmpl if you ride it on a nice long So it is not as bad a drinker as it looks, which is one big in favor of this bike.

getting the service done the pro-biking outlets will burn a hole in your

Final Verdict and Advice for New

Buy this poor man’s only if you cannot do without a and are desperate to turn a few heads. But it is a no-no if you have a daily 50 Kms schedule in the city traffic, as you end up with a nervous breakdown maneuvering through traffic. The is strictly recommended for people who are it for weekend joyrides.

But if you can stretch your budget by 30K, then Enfield quench your thirst to own a classic cruiser.
