    I am an owner of avenger cruise 220 too and I also had some experience with RE. To be frank comparing avenger and RE doesn't make any sense. People with very little to absolutely no knowledge say that you should have bought RE. Don't listen to them, but think and be clear what really you want… Let me break down some points for you1. RE are OLD SCHOOL thumper. Since in every machine the product of SPEED and TORQUE remains constant. RE have a Huge amount of torque and thus they are not fast even with 350cc. On the other hand Avenger have same pulser 220 engine and yes they calibrated that to some extent to produce a decent amount of torque for avenger.We all know RE are slow. They have huge torque and that's why it feels more powerful but that's not true.. You know while riding on road some times people start racing just to show…. whatever… Well I had several these experiences when a RE rider tried to overtake me..lol.. And each n everytime, all I have to do is pull the throttle down just a lil and boom….. They NEVER had been able to overtake me…avenger may not be as fast as a pulser or Duke or any other sports bike but don't forget it's Soul is from one of the fastest bike in India(pulser 220)…its soul is sports and body a cruiser…so it's a quiet an interesting bike.2. Harley Davidson ,indian,etc are different class of bike and the true cruisers having all the physical features of what a cruiser is including high low end torque. On the other hand RE are NOT AT All a cruiser(I am talking about classic 350 and bullet standard,i don't even consider Thunderbird to be a bike… )Thunderbird is an experiment by RE, in my point of view , coz Thunderbird has blunders. Yes, Thunderbird looks AWESOME..I love that bike just for the look. Infact her looks counterbalance every other major or minor drawbacks of her.3. Our mind follow the facts but heart don't…my heart have a secret love for RE. Even though the vibrations are a hassle and it's a fact that they don't feels good to ride even at speed like 55 kmph , people still love it.So the overall conclusion it that you wanted a cruiser type bike and you got 40% genetic cruiser. That's all..be happy with that… Avenger is only cruiser available in such a low price… For a real cruiser , one must go to Harley , Indian, Intruder Suzuki,.4. So do not worry when people say that you sound have bought RE. Think that they are ignorant people who just blindly preach the name of RE without knowing the fact that Avenger is a far better cruiser than RE Thunderbird and much faster than any RE bikes(excluding 500cc).On the other hand RE classic and bullet standard are beautiful classic bikes which are legendary…and that doesn't make avenger inferior.

    Even though the CC is more on Thunderbird, Cruise 220 wins the Drag. Both the bikes are cruisers and choose the one you like. I personally prefer the Cruise because i save almost 80K and both serves the purpose of being Cruise bikes. Maintenance is cheaper on the Cruise. Choosing one is upto you if you are a fanboy of one of these brands.

    Well,the avenger churns out 19.5 hp so does the REthunerbird, but the RE has more torque than avenger. average of avenger is 40 and thunderbird below 30. braking of new RE is dual disc while in avenger the back is drum,so RE has an advantage there. the RE has a lot of vibrations and the avenger has negligible, price difference is about 60,000 between the two, and bajaj servicing is very cheap and the spare parts are also very cheap, so the BAJAJ AVENGER is a much more practical in my opinion,,. by the way i have ridden both these bikes a lot, and avenger best in terms of handling too.
