    Guys,

    Need your help. I am getting an Avenger Sep 11 registered at 70K. The bike has done 5700 km until now. Is this a good price? There is only a single dent on the tank but a minor one.

    Also, what are the prices for:
    1. Fuel gauge (As I suspect its dead on this bike)
    2. Odo and Speedo meter (Just in case)
    3. How much oil it takes as part of regular servicing and how much is the cost
    Where are you located? A new one in Bangalore is around 86K (Bangalore taxes are high)
    My recent 2nd free service cost Rs700.
    I would think 70L is high. Initial depreciation is generally quite high.

    • I am in Pune and the new one costs around 82k. This resale Avenger is 5 months old. We are still working on the final price and I quoted him 68K. Lets see if this goes through. 14K hit for a 5 months old is quite ok I guess.

      The ownership transfer rate is 1000/- and then I spoke to BAL about the remaining service coupons and they said they I can use them irrespective of ownership transfer.

      If this does not go through, I might end up with a new FZ16/R15.

      • I See that in another thread you are also comparing this to R15 and other bikes.
        I would suggest you first zero in on the kind of bike you want. Avenger is different form R15 which is different from FZ16.
        I can understand you may be thinking of this used bike offer a good price and maybe too good to pass. (Happens with me all the time)
        Given that the price difference between this used Avenger is not much from a new one, I would not recommend hurrying up.
        Plus with the new pulsar, who knows Bajaj may soon put the new engine into the Avenger also.

        • Finally, bought the 6 months old Avenger at 68K. No accident, no dents (Except a very small on tank). I have already started enjoying the ride. Its a bit harsh on broken roads but then on good roads, nothing beats it in comfort. Will keep on posting my ownership updates.

                  1) This bike will certainly not look ood for anyone above 5'10" and will be a pain to commute within city

                  2) aily office commuting and riding in the city: 37/l or 38/l (top speed up to 60 Km/hr)
                  Highway: 47 / l (Speed ranging between 60 Km/hr and 90 Km/hr)
                  Highway: 42 / l (Speed ranging between 90 Km/hr and 115 Km/hr)
                  Highway, country-roads, ghats and spoiled-roads: 39 / l (Speed ranging between 40 Km/hr and 100 Km/hr)

                  3) For your height it will be a pain in heavy traffic conditions

                  • Is Avenger good for me?

                    I am planning to buy a new avenger. I presently own Apache RTR 180 which i bought 1 and half years back. I am planning to change it as the riding position is giving me back ache. I have following questions:

                    1. My height is 5 feet 2 inches, would it be comfortable for me?
                    2. I have read that it skids a lot, is it true?
                    3. When will be the new Avenger launched?
                    4. Does a heavy pillion make it difficult to ride?

                    Thanks in advance.

                      1. Yes. it would be comfortable for you.
                      2. True. It skids a lot. For details about this read my review on previous page.
                      3. Bajaj has no where disclosed any plans of new Avenger launch, as far as I know.
                      4. Yes. Heavy pillion would make it difficult to balance the bike and it would be painful for heavy pillion due to not-so-broad pillion seat.

                      • Hey All,

                        So, here I am with my new Avy baby and m lovin' it. I love the comfort and control this baby provides (after a Samurai for close to a decade and Pulsar180 for 7 years ). I'm 5'11" and 120kg and i found this bike perfect to carry my weight

                        Just one problem --- I live in Magarpatta City, Pune. Inside the area, there are humps at almost every 100 meters... Solo, i can clear them all. But with a pillion, i feel like i'm landing on these humps on my backside... What part of the bike hits the road? I fear for the silencer as I'm close to 120kg and my pillion would be heavy too

                        Is there any way we can increase the ground clearance? Would it be safe if the ground clearance is increased in any way? If yes to both, any mechanics in Pune who could do this?

                        I'm having a horrible time dealing with the only bajaj dealer nearby (Gems auto, hadapsar) Any good mechanics nearby for regular servicing?

                          I would like to know this too.

                            • what did the service station do? did they change any part? have you installed any add on like a more powerful horn or something?

                              I have an Avy 220 since last Sept. never faced any such problem till date.
