Bajaj has finally launched the much awaited Avenger Street 180 in India and it comes bearing a price tag of Rs. 84,499 (ex-showroom, New Delhi). This bike replaces the Avenger Street 150 that has been the most affordable cruiser motorcycle of India since its launch here. Meanwhile with the latest model launched, Bajaj brings back the Avenger 180 in its portfolio.
Bajaj Avenger Street 180 comes sporting the same design as the Avenger Street 220. With this new model, Bajaj is expecting to see greater sales in the domestic market. Specially, those customers who felt the Avenger 150 is underpowered for them, will now get a chance to ride a more powerful Avenger without shelling out more money for the Avenger 220. Interestingly, Bajaj launched the Avenger 180 within a few days after introducing the new Avenger 220.
Speaking about its design, the Bajaj Avenger Street 180 carries the same headlamp as Avenger Street 220. It gets a stretched look and an integrated LED daytime running light. The fully digital instrument cluster, wide and fatty 13-litre capacity fuel tank, low positioned rider seat, slightly stepped up and well cushioned pillion seat enhance the appeal further. It will be available in two different colour options that are the Ebony Black and Spicy Red.
The bike gets a prominent and new grab rail that offers comfort and convenience to the pillion rider, while the integrated taillight adds more style to the model. All-new Bajaj Avenger Street 180 is powered by an 180 cc single-cylinder DTS-I engine that is coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission. This engine is well capable of churning out 15.28 bhp of peak power at 8,500 rpm and 13.70 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm.
Bajaj Avenger Street 180 runs on black alloy wheels. For braking duty, it relies on a 260 mm front disc brake and 130 mm rear drum unit. Suspension duty is done by telescopic front forks and monoshock absorber at back.
