Bajaj Auto has introduced three new Avengers today – the Avenger 220 Street, the Avenger 220 Cruise and an all-new Avenger 150 Street, which acts as the entry-level model in the Avenger range. The Avenger 150 Cruise is priced at INR 75,000, ex-Showroom, New Delhi.
The Bajaj Avenger 150 Street gets a 149 cc DTS-i engine that makes 14.5 PS at 9,000 rpm and 12.5 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, and has been specifically tuned for city cruising according to Bajaj. The engine is optimized to give high torque at low/mid range, Bajaj said in its presentation. Compared to the Pulsar, the engine offers 10 percent more torque in the low and mid ranges of the powerband.
The Avenger 150 Street uses a 5-speed transmission. It measures 1,480 mm in wheelbase, 2,177 mm in overall length, 801 mm in width, 1,070 mm in height and 169 mm in ground clearance. It has a kerb weight of 148 kg, and rides on 90/90×17 front and 130/90×15 rear tyres. Stopping power comes from a 240 mm front disc and a 130 mm rear drum. Like the 220 cc variants, the Street 150 also gets a 14 liter fuel tank.
With the launch of the three new Avengers, Bajaj says that it has upped production from about 5,000 units a month to 20,000 units a month of the Avenger brand.
