Bajaj Avenger Cruise Walkaround Review

Bajaj Avenger 220 Cruise Quick Review:
After almost two decades of having an Avenger lying around in the portfolio all neglected, Bajaj finally decided to give the Avenger brand a new lease of life.

What we have here is the newly launched golden-beige colour of the chrome-heavy, ‘Cruise’ variant of Avenger 220. One of the novelty bits of the Avenger is the
tank mounted tell-tales fuel-gauge dial. The tank is done-up in metallic-brown dual tone paint scheme with a golden pin-stripe and a sliver coloured decal, surrounding the chrome tank ornament. Rest of the bits are carried over unchanged for years, since the time of the original ‘Eliminator’, which is not a bad thing since the Kawasaki engineered parts have superb fit-finish and one of the most long lasting chrome-finish in the business.

The over-square Pulsar 220 mill, is a bit of a misfit for a cruiser, since it doesn’t have the characteristic thump of a long-stroke cruiser mill. There are a few extra chrome bits that Bajaj has added like the oil cooler cover and a small filler fairing below the speedo, which are neither well designed nor well finished.

The Bajaj Avenger Cruise is power by 220 cc engine which manages to generate 18.8 bhp @ 8400 rpm and delivers 17 nm @ 7000 rpm. The Avenger Cruise is priced at 98,500 Rs, on road Delhi. The bike manages to give a decent mileage of 35 kmpl when wrist kept under control.
