The Bajaj Avenger 220 ABS has started to hit dealership warehouses. While we await an official announcement to confirm details, a report from Thrustzone claims that the 2019 Bajaj Avenger 220 ABS will be priced at INR 1,02,500 (ex-showroom Mumbai). The on-road price for the motorcycle, with five-year insurance, is estimated to touch INR 1,27,000. The standard motorcycle is priced at INR 95,700 (ex-showroom Mumbai).
The 2019 Bajaj Avenger 220 ABS is expected to launch this month, well ahead of the April 2019 deadline set by the Indian Government, along with the Avenger 180 ABS.
Similar to the Bajaj Pulsar 220 ABS, the Pulsar 180 ABS and the Pulsar 150 Twin Disc ABS, the Avenger 220 comes equipped with a single-channel unit. Bajaj has also opted for a single-channel ABS to keep prices competitive. The MY2019 cruiser will additionally benefit from rear-wheel lift protection (RLP) sensor to stop the wheel from lifting in case of heavy braking.
The 2019 Bajaj Avenger 220 continues with the features and design of the standard model. A completely new model, as confirmed by Bajaj Auto’s Managing Director, Rajiv Bajaj, will arrive in 2020 as the third generation Bajaj Avenger.
A 220cc, oil-cooled, single-cylinder DTSi engine churns out 19 PS of maximum power and 17.5 Nm of peak torque on the Avenger. The motor is paired with a 5-speed transmission.
The Bajaj Avenger 220 is in higher demand as compared to the more affordable Avenger 180. The 220cc cruiser has been clocking average monthly sales of over 3,000 units from June to November. Together, the Avenger series accounts for 5,000-6,000 units of the total sales every month.
