Bajaj Avenger 180 will get a single channel ABS system and there are no other mechanical or cosmetic updates made to the cruiser
We already have reported that Bajaj will launch the Avenger Street 220 with a single channel ABS within a few weeks in India. Recently, Bajaj has also teased their upcoming Avenger 180 ABS variant as well. There is no mention about the prices yet though.
However, keeping the other two Avenger 220 ABS variants’ prices in mind expect the upcoming Avenger 180 ABS to also be priced around Rs 6,700 to Rs 7,000 more than its non-ABS variant. The non-ABS variant of the Avenger 180 retails at Rs 84,717 (ex-showroom).
The teaser image quite clearly reveals that there are no other cosmetic or mechanical updates made to the cruiser. The updated 2019 Avenger 180 continues to be powered by the 180cc, Twin spark, 2 valves, DTS-I, air cooled unit. This unit is capable of churning out about 15.5 PS at 8,500 rpm and 13.7 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox.
The Avenger has been fitted with a conventional telescopic front fork and twin shock absorbers at the rear. The cruiser relies on a 260 mm front disc and a 130 mm drum brakes at the rear. The motorcycle will get a single channel ABS for the safety of the rider.
The Avenger 180 has also been fitted with 17-inch alloy wheels at the front wrapped with 90/90-17 tyres and a 15-inch spoke wheels at the rear wrapped with 130/90-15 tyres. The Avenger 180 tips the scales with a kerb weight of 150 kilograms and gets a 13-liter fuel tank which promises to offer a decent range.
Bajaj updated their Avenger range last year and the Avenger 180 that replaced Avenger 150 received cosmetic updates in the form of a new LED DRL lamp, blacked out alloy wheels and a new grab rail. The Avenger 180 is available in two colour options including Spicy Red and Ebony Black. The motorcycle rivals directly against the Suzuki Intruder 150 which by the way already gets a single channel ABS system.
