Bajaj Avenger Street 180 launched in India. Prices for the new Bajaj Avenger Street 180 start at Rs 83,475 ex-showroom (Maharashtra). The new Street 180 sees the Avenger return to a 180cc engine for the first time since the new lineup was announced in 2015 and the new cruiser will replace the Street 150 in the Bajaj lineup.
The new Bajaj Avenger 180 is powered by an air-cooled, 178.6cc single-cylinder engine that produces 15.3bhp @ 8,500rpm and 13.7Nm of torque @ 6,500rpm. The engine on the new Bajaj Avenger Street 180 is mated to a five-speed gearbox. The Bajaj Avenger Street 180 gets a 13-litre fuel tank and has a kerb weight of 150 kilogrammes.
The new Bajaj Avenger Street 180 gets telescopic front forks up front and twin shock absorbers at the rear which are borrowed from the Street 220. Also carried over from the Avenger Street 220 are the 260mm front disc and 130mm rear drum brake setup. The Bajaj Avenger Street 180 also misses out on ABS. The 17-inch wheels on the new Avenger Street 180 are shod with 90/70 (front) and 130/90 section (rear) tyres from MRF.
In terms of design, the new Bajaj Avenger Street 180 like its many mechanical parts borrows styling cues from the Street 220. These design carryovers include the new headlight with the integrated LED DRL and a small black cowl on top, blacked-out alloy wheels, suspension, side panels, engine and exhaust and the redesigned seat. The new Bajaj Avenger Street 180 is available in two different colour options: Ebony Black and Spicy Red. The new Avenger Street 180 also gets new graphics that provide a contrast to the glossy paint schemes.
DriveSpark's Thoughts On The Launch Of The New Bajaj Avenger Street 180 in India
The new Bajaj Avenger Street 180 sees the Avenger return to its 180cc roots for the first time since the second-gen cruiser was launched in 2015. Combine the new engine with the design and mechanical cues borrowed from the Avenger Street 220 with the fact that the price has increased by just Rs 3,000 when compared to Street 150 and the newest member of the Avenger family seems to be a brilliant deal. We expect the new Avengers Street 150 to cruise out of showrooms with ease as its nearest rival, the Suzuki Intruder 150, costs an extra Rs 12,000.
