Bajaj Auto might launch the new Bajaj Avenger range in the country at an event in Mumbai on October 27, 2015. Though there is no official word about its launch as of now, the company has sent an invite to media for an event taking place on 27th October. And now that the company has already started dispatching the first lot of the new range to its dealerships across the nation, we believe the upcoming event is being planned for the national launch of the updated Avenger.
While there will be two 220 DTS-i engine-powered versions – Street and Cruise, an entry-level 150cc version might also go on sale to lure a larger percentage of buyers. While the 150cc version might share its engine with Pulsar 150AS, the Bajaj Avenger 220 Street and 220 Cruise might continue to feature the same 220cc DTS-i engine that powers the existing version.
The Bajaj Avenger 220 Cruise will look more or less similar to the current model, but with heavier chrome treatment and a new exhaust. The Avenger 220 Street variant, on the other hand, will get an all-black treatment and almost no chrome. The 220 Street’s engine, alloy wheels and exhaust too will get black treatment. Other noteworthy features could be a digital instrument cluster and new graphics.
With the introduction of new Bajaj Avenger range, the company aims to double its monthly sales that’s hovering around 3,500 currently. And with an even more affordable variant of the cruiser in the lineup, we think there is a high probability of the company meeting its target.
