Bajaj Auto has launched the Bajaj Avenger Street 160 ABS as a replacement for the Bajaj Avenger Street 180. It comes in two colour options – Ebony Black and Spicy Red. It has been priced at INR 82,253 (all Ex-Showroom Delhi), which is INR 4,358 lower than the Avenger 180 Street (non-ABS)'s price.
The new 160 cc variant of the Avenger Street family features single-channel ABS with Rear Lift-off Protection, roadster design headlamp with LED DRLs, rubberised rear grab, new graphics with larger Insignia and black alloy wheels. It combines the features of ‘roadster’ and ‘cruiser’ style motorcycles - street control handlebar, low-slung seat and alloy wheels.

As the segment leader, Bajaj Auto believes in the strategy of differentiation and category expansion. Avenger Street 160with ABS provides contemporary styling whilst retaining its classical roadster design. The discerning customer gets a definite step-up into the world of classic biking. This will open up choices to the entry-level sports customers.
The Avenger 160 Street ABS draws 15 PS of power at 8,500 rpm and 13.5 of peak torque at 7,000 from its 160.4 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine. The power-to-weight ratio has improved to 103.3 PS/Ton from the Avenger 150’s 98 PS/Ton.
Stopping power comes from a disc brake (260 mm) at the front with ABS and a drum unit at the back with Rear Lift-off Protection (RLP) tech. Shock absorption tasks are performed by conventional telescopic forks at the front and twin-sided springs at the rear.
