    hi, i own a 2016 avenger 220 street. its a pre owned model and i find the previous owner did not take good care of it. Anyway It's mine now and I intend to keep it and maybe improve it if possible.

    There are a few things I'd like to improve -
    1. Handling and agility - I come from having owned a 200NS and R15S so this bike feels a little sluggish when it comes to handling. When I got it its handlebars were misaligned, I got that fixed. Right now its better than what it used to be but it still feels sometimes that it doesn't go where I tell it to go. the R15 has spoilt me good and I find this frustrating. Im planning on changing tyres, maybe that will help some.
    2. Vibrations - I know there's little I can do here, so I changed oil to motul 7100 20W50 and its vibrates a lot less now 3. brakes - This is what stresses me the most. the front brakes have no feel and all of the braking seems to come from the rear. I have to be extra careful not to hit the rear brake too hard or else I run the risk of sliding out. I had the brake fluid replaced and it helped some. It has decent stopping power but the old tyres and lack of feel from the brakes always scares me in situations i have to brake hard. Another reason why I'm changing tyres, the current tyres are the ones they came stock with. High time i replaced them.

    Is there anything else I can do to improve the braking system?

    Tried Intruder, although it seems comfortable for first 15minutes of riding, it is painful during long commutes over 45mins. I've experienced sharp tail bone pain and thigh pain; and I found awkwardly more forward placed footpegs, short handlebar and stiffer rear monoshocks are the culprits here.
    Now I'm left with only choice. Avenger Cruise 220. Any tall and hefty owners there? Will it be comfortable for long rides? Kindly shed some light. Advance thanks.
    I have owned Pulsars and Avengers for more than a decade now. I have observed Pulsar's forward lean position is the best position for bikers having any type of back problems. A fair amount of stress is thrown upon the shoulders and arms on the Pulsar making the spine less compressive. Technically, a cruise bike is meant for relaxed riding but in case of rough roads the rider gets direct impact on the back. Avenger is not very suitable for rough roads because it does not nave nitrox suspension and the rear high profile tyre adds like an additional cushion. Make a wiser choice.

    I think P150 and 180 had kick start option from factory itself .
    the current twin disc 150 and the 180 does not come with a kick but it is very easy to fit one.

    earlier the 200 shared the same bottom with the 180 and it was possible to install a kick to the p 200

    problem is with the 220 engine it is different and I have forgotten what was the difference.

    Furthermore I would be replacing the front disk with a drum much like the old kawasaki eliminator. I had done so with my classic pulsar 150 but I am not sure if the measurements for the fork for both the classic pulsar and the avenger is the same.

    Yes I know the difference between the stopping capacity of a disk and a drum but this build will be for a bike which will be 80% in the mud of a tea estate and the focus is on ease of repair and durability, which a simple wire drum set up exceeds the hydraulic disk set up.

    Now Bajaj has already announced BS6 Version of 220 Cruise and 160 Street, So I want to know whether they will launch 220 Street or not???

    Today when I checked Bajaj Auto's website, There they have removed page of 220 Street as well.

    I wasn't looking at 160 Street since it does not have Oil cooling and I was planning some long trips on it.

    And for 220 Cruise, the only thing left out is Tubeless tyres.

    Please share your review, whether Bajaj will launch Street 220 or not and if not then for which option I shall go?

    Thanks in advance.
    Looking at past experience as an owner of 2002 Bajaj Boxer CT Deluxe & 2017 Bajaj Avenger 150 street. Going fot 160 will be good option. Whenever I went to Bajaj Service station many 220 street & cruise owner complained about lot of issues regarding starting & engine heat. Yes they were limited, not each & everyone was complaining. Bajaj competes by comprising on certain quality of parts.
    Issues face in last 3 years.
    1)Gear selector spring damaged at 11,000 kms.
    2)Front brake pad changed at 12,000 kms
    3)Rear brake pads gets replaced after 3000 kms.
    I used it a lot before practicing engine braking, proper gear shifting & double braking, now I just have clean them at 3,000 kms replacement at 6,000 kms.

    Certain good things:
    1) I installed Anti theft alarm after 1 year & used it for atleast 18 months before removing it, wires of this aftermarket anti theft alarm were not good quality was on verge of short circuit.

    2) 4 LED & Circular DRL headlamp installed being using it for 20 months works perfecr should have installed a protective film, developed lot of scratches by mischief kids.

    3) Similarly kids, cats sometimes even watchmen walking & banging stick to ground in night near my Avenger sets off alarm. I personally got tired of hearing it everyday.

    4) Even after using such a high consumption LED Headlamp & alarm for 20 months, battery is still working fine, many changed after 2 year

    5) My trusted mechanic said many Avenger owners change Chain sprocket at 14,000 kms, mine is still good at 19,000 kms obviously will change at 20,000kms

    6) Tire TVS Eurogrip were good for 2 months when new not good after that.

    Go with 160 will get good mileage than 220 also, lack Oil cooler means less thing to worry about maintaining it.

    One tip, use Motul mineral oil till 12,000 kms
    Motul semi synthetic after 18,000 kms
    & Motul fully synthetic after 24,000 kms
    Use engine flush while changing oil type i.e. from Mineral Oil to Semi Synthetic (12,000 kms) & from Semi synthetic to Fully synthetic(18,000kms). Just twice not more than that. Bajaj service center will force you to use it every time while oil change, don't go for it.
