Bajaj showcased the 2018 Avenger 220 range at the launch of the 2018 Discover twins. The new bikes feature visual changes. The 2018 Bajaj Avenger 220 Cruise comes with an inverted triangle headlight with LED DRLs on the sides. The cruiser features newly designed windshield, whereas the street gets a flyscreen. The Street’s LED DRL is present on the lower portion of the headlamp. Both bikes come with a fully digital instrument cluster, with tell-tale lights on the tank display. The Cruise rides on 17-inch front and 15-inch rear spoke wheels, while the Street variant gets alloy wheels of the same size.
The two motorcycles employ the same 220 cc DTS-i engine with air and oil cooling. It makes 19.03 PS of power at 8,400 rpm, and 17.5 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. The engine works in unison with a 5-speed gearbox. Cycle parts of the two bikes include telescopic front fork and twin rear shock absorbers.
