Bajaj Avenger 220. test and review

No Replacement for

As you read these words, I be forcing my dad to buy me a bike. Was I this impressed by this low slung tourer? Was I so impressed with the transplant that the already bike had gone through? lets just say, on –

Delhi has been experiencing (read lots) of rain in the days. There was muck and all around and to add to my woes, the traffic was Even with all these enough reasons to make me to ride, I was enthusiastically standing and the guy from Bajaj cleaning the red AVENGER 220.


I was for two reasons; one, I was badly to ride since my studies give me time to ride in the few months. Two, I had never the Avenger before!

I grinned cheekishly as I saw the last of the cleaning being done.

The thing that made me was the low, long and wide Even after more 10 years of existence, one cannot be of the looks. The side panels, and the rear seem like a fit. The bike hasn’t visually since its first in 2001 as the Eliminator. Not even the has gone through the black like the other products Bajaj. owing to the true cruiser spirit of shiny

I swung my leg and relaxed(yes, not sat) on the seat. Boy, finally a with a nice comfy I thought. The positioning of the lock and were new to me and although I found cumbersome, they weren’t a to avoid riding.

The first few kilometers were in realizing the handlebar-footpeg-seating geometry and I got used to the riding position. The weighs 154 kgs which didn’t bother me while moving but a ‘here-and-there’ was a bit difficult due to the long and the turning radius. It is shod a 17” front tyre and a 15” rear grippy MRFs. The rear is a 130 tyre and add to the beefy look of the

The rectangular rear view look good and perform better.

The advancements over the models include a low battery and a full DC lighting system. I have also wanted a footboard styled footpeg (eh la style).

Once I got used to the I started riding it the way it would be to ridden – some casual riding, few speed bursts and a speed stint. Maneuvering traffic was not exactly easy but one can do with it. The midrange, thanks to the new is better than before.

The heart pumps out 19 horses 17.5nm of torque, which is than the similar engined The torque helps to easily the bike from low speeds in gears and one can happily cruise at kmph all day long. But, above 80kmph can be easily and becomes irritating after time.

Another thing made my smile, slightly happening, was the low intensity horn.

The from the front brake is thanks to the 260mm disk. The headlight bulb does its well in delivering good of light in dark. Although it its engine with the p220, it houses a manual choke, the carb.

I wouldn’t really call the a cornering bike but it surprised me by not the main stand like its the p220.It handled extremely and the smile on my face rose again! I was already a couple of down riding the bike and was impressed by the seating posture. I had it to be a guzzler and it answered my doubts by a mere 35kmpl.

We stopped for a session and I could admire the red machine, again.

The Avenger has evolved from the time it was launched in 2001 as the Bajaj eliminator. Bajaj finally to throw in the 180 DTS-I engine in it to it more reliable, and more much more affordable. in 2007, they plonked it up the 200cc engine from the and installed an oil cooler.

So when the P220 was launched, it was that Bajaj would the A220 card too. And it has no competition in its class, whatsoever.

Our did not come up with the large windshield, which I sorely I have seen one with the and the whole appearance changes. It classier and more dynamic without the shield.

So the big question – Who should buy this bike? And

I would say, anyone who is to shift from the daily of back crunching machines. He shouldn’t be a mid 40s, long and foliage, beer bellied A normal guy who wishes to ride in the city with some for nearby touring should be than happy with purchase. Also, an urban who wants a soft cruiser.

But if you want some serious then please look It sure has the heart from the but lacks the punch. That said, I wouldn’t mind

So I am still forcing my dad to buy me a bike. An 220 you ask? Lets just say – re-read the above text a of times.
