    I own a Avenger 220 Cruise. Must tell you the ride is really comfortable and no vibrations or difficulty in traffic. Can easily maneuver in traffic. Two things I don\\\'t like is the long wheelbase makes turn radius more, which becomes difficult while taking you turns or changing to the opposite lane. Second is pick up is average for a 220 cc engine. Rest: Low Maintainence Cost, Spare parts availability, Bajaj Service Center Availability , Pretty Good Mileage of around 25-30 Kmpl and The Best Is You can go on Long Drive in comfort, No Back Pain, Less Vibration, Less Fuel Stops and the best Cruising at 80kmpl comfortable and enjoy the Ride. Now my friend also has a Thunderbird. Same as known problems, Vibrations, Mileage Problem, High Service Charge, comparatively less service center availability and the biggest concern is the spare parts cost. Average Pick Up. Which means you\\\'ll struggle overtaking. Thunderbird although gives you a very much comfortable ride except for the vibrations. For daily commute, I wouldn\\\'t Suggest a Thunderbird. For a daily commute of 60km, you can go for Avenger 220 Street or Cruise. Other options would be NS 200 or Yamaha FZ or New Gixxer is also good I guess.

    Yes . I have mentioned in my earlier answer, it has a heavy vibration while on ride above 80 kmph and also when go for long drive of more than 100 + km distance , ur shoulders would start getting pain . Also more kms ride , the more pain u receive. So choose ur choice . Still I’m riding my TB 350 for past 3 yrs . But no long drive . I have had enough.
