  • Re: Bajaj Avenger - All versions

    I have got my avenger 220 street before 1 month and rode 650 kms till now. 1st Service is done before 2 days. I can feel the engine is smooth and refined now. My issue is can i cross 60 Km before reaching 1000 Kms or not. Will it have any affect on mileage if i cross 60 KM now? I also feel my bike is not allowing me to cross 60KM coz its shivering if i try to cross 60KM even. One more thing is my bikes's mileage is 30KM-35Km now. Servicing person told mileage will be improved after 2nd service and till then mileage will be the same. Is it correct? Can anyone help me please.

      I have same issue with the bike engine struggling to cross 60 usually. It gets better if the engine heats up. I think, maybe the parts needs to settle in and after you throw in semi synthetic or synthetic high grade oil, it will perform better.
      I have only crossed 250kms and I am planning for am oil change. Will go for Shell mineral oil.
      Though I would really like to hear from others that how well their bike does after 60 in 5th gear?

        Hi guys , I got Avenger 220 cruise gold on 27th October , on my birthday , previously I use to ride unicorn . It was my dream to own a cruiser bike when I joined college .finally I got my hands on one .Have clocked 237 kms and yet to do first service. Faced few problems which I will quote below.
        1) Horn was mushy and even after two visit to Bajaj service centre , problem was not solved , I had to go third time and told head mechanic who cut the wire and rejoined it , which solved the problem.

        2)the fuel indicator or gauge is faulty ,on delivery day I went to fuel station to fill 600 Rs fuel i.e 8.24 Ltrs . , the bike had clocked 31 kms to fuel pump.after few days the bike indicator was fluctuating while riding in half tank .when I clocked 163 kms the fuel indicator was showing empty or near empty , so went to fill again 600rs , I was shocked earlier how come so low average , my dad told new bike gives low , but not so low I told him.when I filled 600 Rs petrol i.e 8.24 LTrs , the tank got full , which means 6 Ltrs were already there , and average turned out to be 44 . Only city driving on variable speed max up to 60 Km per hour.I had read about same problem here , in which guy had faced same problem in 220 street and you won't believe , he went to branch of my service centre in MUMBAI , Suryoday .They could not fix his problem and he went to local mechanic who re align his fuel gauge .
        i went twice to my service centre which is 2 kms away. The guy first told its common in every avenger , the indicator fluctuates , but told him when I stop , the problem is still there.I met the service manager who told they will replace both indicator and fuel gauge , they only replaced indicator , saying problem will solve if not come again we will replace gauge. Guess problem is still there as I clocked 74 kms more and fuel gauge still shows full.will go there on my first service as the tank will be half empty and I can still tell the problem again. Anyone has such issue ?

        3)There was some sound coming from left hand side , like some hard metal balls rubbing , the head mechanic solved it in minute , the chain cover was rattling the chain.

        so far no other issues and loving every moment of it.

        The gear shifter is way better than Honda unicorn , as I and most of my friend who own unicorn had problem shifting to first nearing stop and then to go to second as it use to make tak tak sound . Even after many services that never went.

        this bike shifter is so smooth while riding in third , I accidentally went to first or nuetral.

        Hope to finish my runnin period soon , so I can go on rides with avenger group.

        Ya even I am facing such issue , the bike is struggling to pull beyond that , but I tried once as I am in running period .Even when I got unicorn , it too struggled but after running period and first service it was smooth , even touched 100 on it.only used Honda oil back then.

          I think we just gotta hold on to the bike's roughness while it's under first 600 miles. I suppose once we go past the break-in period, things may improve.
          Mileage has been a sad story for me too, but I suppose that because of the riding condition. Usually riding at or below 30 miles/hr on 4th/5th gear doesn't get you a lot of fuel efficiency, specially when engine is rough and new. There's just too much friction within the engine blocks, that are yet to settle and fall in to place. I don't know how much finish automation gives, but it's still metal parts so it will have non-uniform surfaces.

          I went to the service centre today to get my license plates, which for some strange reason hasn't arrived yet ( I got the number as such but no the plates - it's been over 2 weeks now ). I can't seem to find the details of my bike using online methods either, maybe the details haven't been fed into the portal system yet.

          Anyways, so I asked the mechanic to do an engine-oil change and he clearly stated that let the ball rough for a while , we will do the change after 300-350 miles and it should get rid of most of the high NVH levels in the bike. Mileage should improve too, from this logic.
          I asked him about the oil and he mentioned that they will only use Bajaj's engine oil and it costs around 400-450 INR for the required volume.

          By the run-in period, I am just saving up and trying to find decent riding gears and accessories.
          Few recommended accessories that shouldn't void the warranty and yet improve enjoyment are :
          1. Joyride Bike Seat Cover Joy Ride India ( Ordered this few days back for ~600 bucks from their online portal ). I had the courier yesterday, however I missed the receipt so will take it's delivery on Tuesday. The cover has excellent reviews, and I highly recommend it for our bike, as it's seat is a gem to be preserved.

          2. Cellphone Charger - Most of us intend to buy the bike for long rides, and therefore smartphone charges are a must for our intelligent companion in the long ride.
          I have planned for this charger - this mixes well with the looks to. RoboTouch RideOn Mobile Charger tor Two Wheelers (Black): Amazon.in: Car & Motorbike

          3. Gods Triton X2 50Ltr Saddle bag Gods Triton X2 - 50 Ltr Saddlebag Bike Saddle bag: Amazon.in: Car & Motorbike - This looks excellent and has great fitting on our bike. Yet to order one though. I will buy it once the bike is past 1000km mark so that it can be used for long rides.

          4. Tank Bag http://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B01M...3QG4CSZ0HDJK7G Instead of buying a smartphone holder , I highly recommend this as it's more convenient and safe to put the smartphone in the dashboard and use for keeping necessary paper and documents, such as offline maps, wallet, power banks, camera etc.

          5. Indicator/Headlight/Tail Light Grills - These are self explanatory, you wouldn't want ruin the looks with broken parts that will happen eventually based on our road conditions. So better protect these. You also have to admit that these add to the cruiser feel and look for the street model.


          Among few other things I have planned are a Decent All Weather Riding Jacket for 7-10k INR, a decent pair of gloves besides the generic Pro-Bikers ones, a Pair of knee/shin guards. Some additional 3M tapes for extra visibility of me and my bike during non-bright hours, few fog lamps, a center lock for safety and anti-theft.

            Mileage is very good for me , 44kmpl on city , mostly driving in 30 to 50 kmph.its preety good considering it is 220 cc bike, I use to get 45 to 48 on Honda Unicorn.


            Ya average should improve more once service is done and even nhv level will go down after first oil change ,told by asc guy.

            byt he way is your fuel indicator working properly ?Does it fluctuate and does show less than petrol available in tank ?

              Honestly, I never rely on the fuel indicators for fuel. I rather keep the count by odo and overall average.
              Though I also do feel The fuel indicators are a bit messed up and shot weird reading at times.
              But I think because there's a ~4Ltr reserve so if there's just 4 Ltrs of fuel left then it will show as empty.
              The remaining capacity is 13 or 14ltrs, I suppose. Which means that if you have 4Ltrs in reserve + 6ltrs additional then only the gauge will show 1/2 or indicator in middle.
              I remember the highest I could see my bike's fuel gauge show was 35%% when I had 7-8ltrs of fuel in it, including reserve.
              I think it will take time to get used to the gauge.

                      So I finally received the Joy Ride seat cover, yesterday. Unfortunately I didn't have time to try and install it.
                      It doesn't have any installation instruction, but I guess - it should be a cakewalk as this things has 3 velcro straps and from the looks of it, all you have to do is detach the seat from the bike. Cover the seat with this seat cover and use the velcro straps on the seat cover to fasten it with the seat.

                      Quality seems way better than the original cover that the showroom guys handed over for few hundred bucks.Apparently, this thing has some really nice features such as water-resistance, heat repelling technology, scratch resistance ,etc - which I haven't tested yet.
                      Overall a very nice package for ~600 rs.

                      • Need Help !! Related to New Bajaj Avenger cruise Mileage .

                        Hello Friends and thank you admin and others for approving me to the group.

                        I m an new rider and a learner. Recently purchased Bajaj avenger cruise 220 cc (around 40 days back).
                        Its still run in period and service is due in next 2-3 days.
                        Currently I am getting mileage very low around 24-25 km/l (tested via reserve to reserve method).
                        I am driving on average speed of 30-40 km/hr and rode around 460 km till now.


                        Where I am going wrong, will the mileage increase after servicing, and how much increase should I expect.

                            Hi guys, so here in Kolkata tubeless variants are already available across most Outlets, what I did not remember to ask at the time of visiting was if they already have BSIV upgrade fitted to them.
                            Can any of you shed light, whether BSIV is available with the tubeless variants or not? currently OTR it is 1,07,766 /-

                                Yes BSIV only has tubeless tyres. Even you can check on the tyre a very small tubeless would be written on it both front and back that is the original trade mark of showing a tyre if it is tubeless or not. See if your previous otr was low and now the price have gone up that means the current alloys have been changed to those alloys which can support tubeless tyres. This is am saying as I have placed an order from my SVC for the tyre but the manager was saying that it will not fit on these alloys for which he has placed another order for a new set of alloys too but I have told him that I will first try to get the tyres fitted on the current stock alloys which I got with the bike. Let's see shall update all of you here about the correct answer.
