Bajaj Avenger Street 220

The Bajaj Avenger Street 220 has one of the most mainstream designs produced by Bajaj in the past few years.

Aesthetically speaking, Street 220 bears all the necessities demanded by the common market: a cool, smooth frame with a sleek, modern silhouette. 

Bajaj’s History

Bajaj Auto was founded in 1945 under the name Bachraj Trading Corporation Private Limited. Quite the mouthful in comparison to “Bajaj Auto,” which is probably why the company later changed its name.

60 years later, after several decades of producing various mid-level motorcycles and fighting for market capitalization against companies like Royal Enfield, Bajaj unveiled the Bajaj Avenger. Another five years later, the Avenger Street 220 hit the ground running.

Modern Design

The Avenger series has always had a low and long profile with frames supporting larger back wheels than the front, but the Avenger Street 220 captures the essence of these schematics in a way that the others never quite could.

The Street 220 was designed to be a Sportster touring bike, adding this sort of flare to the Avengers already recognized sporting designs. In fact, the Avenger series motorcycles are somewhat dual-sports, thanks to the clever engineering of their ABS systems.

Of course, this isn’t to say that an Avenger should be used out on the Enduro fields.

Three Generations Strong

The design teams behind the Avenger Street 220 released multiple generations of the Avenger series motorcycles, ultimately culminating in the production of three separate generations of the Avenger 220

Bajaj Avenger Street 220 (2010-2015)

The original Street 220 sported a four-stroke, single-cylinder, DTS-i, SOHC engine with two valves, and a displacement of 219.9cc. Weighing in at only 340 pounds dry, this motorcycle was one of the lightest in the sportster class.

Bajaj Avenger Street 220 (2015-2017)

The second generation of the Street 220 saw changes made to the engine to increase the maximum mid-range torque. Other than that, and a few minor changes, this was the same bike as generation one.

Bajaj Avenger Street 220 (2017-present)

The third generation Bajaj Avenger Street 220 brought with it a handful of design changes and engineering alterations ranging from new headlight fixtures and instrument displays to redesigned back grab rails for improved performance and safety.

Media Reception

Media outlets tend to spend their time discussing Bajaj’s successes by comparing Bajaj motorcycles to Royal Enfield motorcycles, which is only natural considering that they are the two big Indian names and have been duking it out in a battle for dominance that has lasted about 80 years.

Lack of Media Representation

The Bajaj Avenger Street 220 has never appeared in any major film or TV productions at any time or phase of its production.

Social Groups

It’s tough to find any well-traveled social media groups centered around particular models in the Bajaj collection; however, things are different for the Bajaj Avenger Street 220. In fact, this Facebook group has more than 6,000 members!

Bajaj Avenger Street 220 – Giving Royal Enfield a Run For Its Money

If there’s a single reason that Royal Enfield hasn’t devoured Bajaj yet, it’s because Bajaj’s designers and engineers consistently manage to put out high-quality content like the Bajaj Avenger Street 220.
