    I have Avenger 220 street for last two months and I can say with my experience with it, yes its fuel meter isnt accurate. You cant rely upon it and will have to top up after bike reaches reserve fuel everytime, to be at a safer side. Engine isnt that smooth but its not that much of issue if you ride till 70/80kmph for hours. If you seeking triple digit speeds for long duration from this machine, i suggest you to extend your budget and get another bike. Only concern with gear shifting that i faced is false neutral, but its not that big issue.

    Bike does have a faulty fuel meter just like other digital fuel meterBajaj bikes. And the error isnt little, its pathetic. Sometimes the tank is full and the meter shows it below half and sometimes bike is in reserve and the meter shows it near full mark.

    The updated new avenger 2012 street is a very comfortable and enjoyable bike to ride in city or Highway. The bike is totally underrated. It"s performance is way better than I imagined. It"s a real treat for the eyes and cutting through traffic is easy as a pie.

    Pros: 1. Good power2. Great comfort for the driver3. Low maintenanceCons:1. Not at all good in comfort for the pillion rider2. Lack of power in low RPM3. Too hard gearbox (I recommend to use Synthetic engine oil 20W50 to ease the performance)

    I bought my avenger street 220cc bike 15 days ago and this will be my initial expression. I know i can't judge the bikes performance at this stage but this might help someone if they want to upgrade to a cruise bike or even a family bike in that matter. Lets know about my riding and bike history and a small background check i have done before buying this bike.I had upgraded from honda shine, which was my traveling companion for almost 13 years and done around 1,60,000kms in that time. I was very happy with honda and wanted to upgrade to honda unicorn but found it to be on the taller side ( i known its not bikes problem. I am a short guy 5'.5'' ;) ) Few of the other bikes i tried are pulsar 125, honda sp 125, yamaha saluto, tvs star city, and couple of other commuter bikes . I didn't try any of the rtr's, other pulsar's, hornet, fz's, suzuki's etc as i wanted a bike for family commute also.Then i tried sitting on an avenger and was instantly fell in live with the seating position and the seat comfort.Took a test drive of street 160 as i was not looking for higher cc bikes and was about to book it, but for some unknown reason i book street 220, which i think was the best decision i have made when it comes to purchase of a vehicle. I didn't go to the suzuki intruder as i didn't liked its look ( looks are subjective, you may feel otherwise).Now after 300kms and 15 days i can say this....Pro's:1. Comfortable riding experience, though it took a couple of days to get adjust to leg resting position..2. Powerful engine3. Pretty good mileage (getting 40kmpl average)4. Not too heavy5. Even though its a long bike, you will not it's uncomfortable in traffic.6. Great looks.Con's:The only con i noticed was the bajaj's quality control is pretty bad. I don't know whether the check their bikes before the delivery.My bike's handle was not aligned properly and had to get it to service center 3 times before they can get the issue fixed. Then i found the rear mud guard was off center. Found lot of gum marks of masking tapes on petrol tank and handle bars. Fuel indicator never shows proper fuel level. This one i have noticed and heard from lot of my friend's bajaj bikes. Theses are the small things that defines a company. If bajaj wants to compete with the likes of honda, yamaha, suzuki or even with TVS who in recent times have improved in their quality control a lot, it have to up its quality team's performance.Will update about service experience and long ride experience after my bike complete its 1000 odd kms.A must bye bike if you don't mind about its qc issues and fuel indicator
