    re: Bajaj Avenger series launch on 27th October

    as per freakazoids' FB page, where these images first appeared, the new avenger is called The Avenger 220 Street (the "street" badge is clearly visible on one of the pics as well. Though I fail to understand why would they use the 220 engine when there have been reports of their newer 200 engine making its way onto the Avenger!

        Why bajaj is going on path of Honda, relaunching the same bike with new color schemes.

        I see some changes but it won't increase sales to 20,000 units pm.

        Are they trying to tease public for upcoming CS

          Beg to differ Sunil... but manufacturers don't make/alter plans just because "there are reports" floating around.

          We (you and me) have been around for eons to understand how and what kind of reports float on the net (even in national publications)..

          .. don't you remember how the Ninja 250R was "reported" to be launched at Rs. 1.5 Lakhs... by each and every publication and Bakwaas Blogs?

          .. don't you remember how the R15 was "reported" to make 21 PS by reputed journalists and Bakwaas Blogs?

                See an engine lying around in the background in the first pic. Clear evidence that they are using old engines in new avengers. [emoji14]

                Anyway it looks good from front view. Those spoke alloy Wheel on front looks good. Can't see back wheel. Is it upside down forks?
                But the height of the bike seems still same (very low)

                    You are right, but I think the reports were there BECAUSE Bajaj had plans to do it and not the other way around. Also the same new engine is making its way into all the new generation motorcycles from Bajaj stable so expecting this into the 'new' Avenger was quite natural to all of us because this bike has performed reasonably well for Bajaj despite being neglected.

                    On the other hand i always wondered where will they place the 'CS200' if the Avenger also has the same 200 engine!

                      Now that the new avenger is using the same old engine, we can be sure that the p220 won't be discontinued anytime soon😜

                        Nope, no official statements were ever made about any such plans.. it was all courtesy fertile imagination of bakwaas bloggers and even the journos (sadly) followed suit.

                        Its not a simple "Cut+Copy+Paste" job as we would like to believe. Remember the 200NS engine was developed for a totally different frame and geometry..

                        .. also the development + retooling + setting a different assembly line up for the "new" engine would push the costs of the Avenger.


                        BTW do you really think mass (the ones who actually matter to a maker of mass motorcycles) are interested/aware of the difference between an air cooled and liquid cooled engine for Bajaj to take the gamble? Especially after the Pulsar 220 still being popular despite the 200NS being a much superior package?

                        For the masses the 220 is still a better dealer than the 200NS

                        Once again the CS 200 is another of those "You Read It Here" first "reports".

                            If the 3 variants "reports" by CNBC is correct, then I expect

                            1. A Classic Chrome Avenger (like the current one) with Spoke Wheels to complete the "classic" look
                            2. A Black "Street" Avenger (the one seen in the spy photo) with alloy wheels (and possibly tubeless tyres as well)
                            3. No Idea Till now

                            All 3 to have the same 220 cc engine (to maximize profit with minimum investment)

                              I think it is a chinese make

                                For me, cruisers needs more torque, power and beefier specs than this. It should be able to do 100km/hr with no sweat. Tourers will carry heavy luggage and with a pillion as well. They are meant to ride in the twisties, hill range and other terrains easily. Basically continental cafe racer's engine in avenger with little more ground clearance and good suspension.
