Why did Bajaj copy the design of Harley Davidson Street 750 in Avenger Street bike?
Yes, the Avenger Street bikes look like Harley Davidson Street 750 with almost similar look, black alloys, black engine and a black exhaust, interestingly even the name ‘Street’ has been kept same. Bajaj Avenger when launched was billed as the poor man’s Harley Davidson. Even Bajaj officials claim that this design inspiration has been taken from Harley Davidson Street 750.
Although these bikes looks same from a distance but there is much difference between them as Street 750 is lengthier, wider and higher than Avenger Street, wheelbase and ground clearance of both bikes are also different, the kerb weight of Street 750 is 222 kg while of Avenger Street is only 148 kg. Avenger bikes cannot be banned as Bajaj has not infringed any patent right.
