Bajaj Auto is on the road to revival with its motorcycles and the company is ready to bring the Avenger Street 220 back to the market. Dealers told HT Auto that the bike will be making a comeback soon. The Bajaj Avenger Street 220 will join the already launched Avenger Cruise 220 as well as the entry-level Avenger Street 160.
Unlike the Cruise 220, the Bajaj Avenger Street 220 has a simpler exterior with fewer chrome elements. Styling is the same as the Street 160, including round headlamps, blacked-out engine, fork shrouds, black alloy wheels and smaller rear seatbacks. The Street 220 also features a small windshield and a flat handlebar, compared to the Cruise 220’s tall windshield and raised handlebar.

The Bajaj Avenger Street 220 will be powered by the familiar 220 cc single cylinder engine that was recently updated for the Cruise 220.

The motor is paired to a 5-speed gearbox. It was recently updated to meet the latest BS6 Stage 2 emission standards.
The bike sports a telescoping fork and dual shocks at the rear, while stopping power comes from disc brakes up front and drum brakes in the rear. The model will come standard with single-channel ABS.
