The Bajaj Avenger 220 is a cruiser-type performance motorcycle that serves as a successor to Bajaj's popular cruiser, the Avenger 200, but the similarities between the two models are extensive. The Avenger 220 is the only cruiser offering from Bajaj and also the only affordable single-cylinder cruiser in the country. The Avenger has the classic cruiser looks. Its low slung styling, classic fuel tank with fuel gauge build give it the Avenger a distinct identity.Unfortunately, the time that Bajaj has had to update the bike hasn't been spent on its exterior it's strongly reminiscent of the 200, and the worst characteristics of that earlier model. In particular, the 220 is bulky and feels overweight. Despite a slightly leaner frame than the 200, the bike weighs in at 155 kg, and its front-positioned dual down-tube frame and rear-wheel swing arm look very old-fashioned. Bajaj have gone for a bigger, boxier, more classic aesthetic for this bike: a large round headlamp and rectangular rear-view mirrors are prominent characteristics.
Its windshield is unattractive, and looks flimsy. Material quality is surprisingly high: its aluminium levers and metal handlebar weights look solid, durable and classy. One of the notable ways in which the Avenger 220 differs from its predecessor, the Avenger 200, is the comfort of the bike it's a considerably more pleasant ride than that earlier model. Its rider seat is broader than that of the 200, and the riding position is more ergonomic and splayed-out, giving greater comfort as well as improved aerodynamics the rider will feel considerably less air resistance when moving at high speed. The bike doesn't come equipped with any notable safety features, but its headlamp is powerful enough to make night-riding a breeze. The Avenger is available in three colours- Midnight Black, Cocktail Wine Red and the Plasma Blue.
