  • Avenger or Royal Enfield Bullet / Thunderbird

    Hi, I wanted to buy Avenger 220 but the only thing which is bothering me is that I am 5ft10in tall, will this bike suit me as it is very low in height?
    If not then could you suggest me some other cruiser bike which isn't too costly, coz I like cruiser bikes more than compared to Sports bikes.
    How is the bike Royal Enfield Thunderbird & Bullet 350/500cc? I live in Bangalore, how much will these two bikes cost me ?

      Hi Rahul,

      I own an Avenger 220 for last 21 months and I have ridden 25000 K ms so far.

      PFB the link for review by me.

      I have done saddle sore, taken it to off roading and various long and short trips and bike has performed beautifully. Only factor is your height. Take a test ride and decide.

        Hi Rahul,
        what exactly do you refer to, when you ask "suit me"?
        If you take ride comfort into consideration then yes, the avenger will be extremely comfortable, even for all-day riding. I am 5.9 myself and have used an Avenger for 5 days at Goa where I used for extensive touring all day. I never felt the slightest discomfort. If you are concerned about the low seating position, then yes, the dynamics are slightly different from a regular performance bike but nothing awkward.

        But frankly, the Avenger is not a "true" cruiser - it's a Pulsar engine in a cruiser body afterall. RE are closer to "true" cruisers with peak power and torque coming at lower RPMs. Take a TD and check which suits you better. If your budget permits, do wait for the Hyosung GV250.

        Biking is not about how many Km/h you put on your Speedo. It's about how many miles you put on your Odo. Ride Safe, Ride Long!
