    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. Which bike is the best in Yamaha MT-15 Or Bajaj Dominar 250 ?
    • The Yamaha MT 15 BS6 is more than just the R15 v3 sans fairing. The naked looks sharp is light, and can be a hoot to commute. However, the compact riding posture might be a bit too tight for large riders. What is also disheartening is the poor switchgear and build quality as well as the lack of dual-channel ABS. On the other hand, a motorcycle, the Dominar 250 does one thing right -- it is fit to purpose. The Dominar 400, for example, always felt like a confused motorcycle as the 390’s motor is too manic to make for a great sports tourer. It gets the job done, but just about. On the other hand, the Dominar 250’s motor felt boring on the KTM, but combined with the comfortable tourer the Dominar is, it works beautifully. It truly feels like it deserves the ‘sports tourer’ tag. So while Bajaj might pitch it as the entry-level Dominar, we think the 250 is the Dominar in its perfect form. Though Dominar 250 is around 20k expensive as compared to Yamaha MT-15, it offers a great value at its price and a better choice too. You may compare both the bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
    Q. Which is better Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220 Or Avenger Street 160? I want to buy a bike for daily commute as well as for long rides up to 300 - 400 kms a day.
    • As per your requirements, Avenger Cruise 220 would be a better pick. The engine on the Cruise 220 is the same one used in the previous Avenger but Bajaj has said that they have tweaked it for better low and mid-range grunt. It still puts out 19.03PS at 8500rpm and 17.55Nm at 7000rpm. But while riding you can feel that little extra punch in the lower rev range. At a price point of 1.20 Lakh(Ex-showroom price in Delhi), it is around 25K expensive as compared to Street 160, but it offers a great value. It offers comfortable ride quality, it is good enough for daily city commutes and capable enough for long rides too. Do take a test ride in order to judge your riding comfort.
