    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. Which is better Avenger cruise or street 220?
    • The Bajaj Avenger Street 220 is a more-urban focused version of the Cruise 220. So, based on your preference and riding style, you can choose either one as they are the same underneath. Yes, the Street 220 doesn’t come with a backrest for the pillion. If that is a point of concern, the Cruise 220 is the way to go. Otherwise, the Street 220 offers fantastic value for money. The Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220 is amongst the most popular cruisers on sale in India, offering fantastic value for money proposition. The Pulsar 220-sourced engine delivers a fine balance between power and frugality with a lot more oomph than the previous generation model. It is also the most affordable of all cruisers mentioned above.
    • Cruise 220 is best for city & Long Driving. I'm using this bike for the past one year. Its comfort is awesome. Its a better option for daily use & Long Drives. For the past one year I have traveled 6 long drives. Comfort and suspension is excellent.
    • Both cruise 220 and street are having same heart ,that is 220cc engine but 220 cruise is looking more classic with its lots of chrome inserts and additionally a wind shield but you should wait till 2019 for new govt. Norms for ABS mandatory for theses bike because I am riding 220 cruise and I am little disappointed with its braking . So as per me u should wait till 2019 for ABS version of avenger range.

    Q. Could you please suggest me a best cruise bike(BS-6) as I do go as pillion for long week-end drives and very limited use(max 5 kms/day) within Bangalore city. My preference are Mileage, Comfortable, Style and of-course price(1.2-1.5 Lakhs).These are in my mind(Avenger 220 cruise, Jawa-42, Royal Enfield Classic) but need your expertise/suggestions.
    • Out of 3 Jawa is the best. It gives the best cruising speed compared to C350 and Avenger 220. It has got advanced, liquid cooled & refined engine.Avenger is 1/3 cheaper than both. So if you are tight on budget, go for Avenger.Otherwise Jawa is a better option than Classic 350 any day.Now Benelli also is in the race. If you are in a Metro city, Benelli 400 also a good option. But here also Jawa has got an upper hand.I ride an Avenger 220 street and it is very cheap to maintain. Bajaj service centers are available in any corner of our country. I’ve never felt that I am riding an inferior bike. It gives a mileage of 35–40 kmpl and can ride whole day without getting pain. It never failed till date.
    • Avenger 220 Cruise is a good buy. Its quite pocket friendly as well when maintenance come into the picture. Jawa and RE Thunderbird comes around 2L on-road Bangalore. Test ride the 3 bikes and go for the one you like. I use the Cruise 220 and ride it usually on Bangalore traffics and get mileage roughly around 30-34 kmpl.
    • As per your requirements, Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220 would be a great pick. It offers a comfortable riding position and gets good engine gearbox combo. Also, it delivers best Fuel Efficiency in the segment. Do take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts.Check out authorised dealership details.
    Q. Sir, which one bike is better between Bajaj Avenger 180 Street and Bajaj Avenger 220 Cruise in terms of mileage, looks, performance and comfort?
    • There’s no difference in terms of performance and fuel efficiency if you compare Street 180 and Cruise 220. Both bike fuel efficiency of 40 at the cost of performance.Major difference in Cruise 220 and Street 180 is in their looks. Street, having flat handlebar, has better handling experience in city traffic. On the other hand, Cruise gives better ‘cruiser like’ feel.
    • Sir mileage is better in 180 street because it have a less cc engine then cruise. Cruise have around 30-35 mileage.Looks make you royal in cruise and make you sporty tourer in street avenger.Performance wise avenger cruise is winner.Comfort wise no doubt blindly avenger cruise is best
    • On looks and comfort, 220 cruise is anyday a hands-on winner for me. On mileage, 180 cruise is reportedly better, naturally because of a lighter, newer fuel efficient engine.
