Bajaj launches three sports bikes

Adventure Cruise 220 and Street 220 will be priced Rs 84,000

Mumbai: Bajaj Auto on Tuesday launched three new variants of its sports biking brand, the Avengers. The three models — Avenger Cruise 220, Street 220 and the Street 150 — have been priced below Rs 85,000 in an attempt to popularise leisure biking in the country.

According to a statement, the Adventure Cruise 220 and Street 220 will be priced Rs 84,000 and Street 150 will come for a price tag of Rs 75,000 (all prices ex-showroom Delhi).

Commenting on the launch Mr Eric Vas, president, motorcycles business, Bajaj Auto, said, “The genuine cruiser segment has steadily grown over the years with the Avenger as the torch bearer. We expect that by bringing in an additional style variant such as the Street, and by offering the popular 150 cc capacity, we will significantly expand the cruiser segment. With the new Avenger models joining the immensely successful Pulsar range, Bajaj Auto will strengthen its offerings to discerning customers in the Indian market, and reinforce Bajaj Auto's leadership in the premium motorcycle segment.”

Mr Vas said the new 150 cc model offers 10 per cent more torque than the 150-cc Pulser, and runs on an entirely new engine on its DTSi platform. The 220 cc models come with an oil cooler to help this hi-performance engine maintain engine oil temperature and viscosity irrespective of external riding conditions.
