Bajaj dealerships have confirmed the ABS versions of the Bajaj Avenger 220 and the Avenger 180 to be launched in India by January 2019. Bajaj Auto already offers ABS on the Pulsar NS200 and the Pulsar RS200, while the rest of the range will receive it in January 2019.
Bajaj Avenger series will feature a single-channel ABS unit, which will be similar to the one found on the Pulsar NS200. The Pulsar NS200 ABS costs Rs. 12,000 more as compared to the non-ABS model, so we expect the same premium for the ABS version in the Avenger range. At present, the non-ABS models of the Avenger 220 Cruise and Street cost Rs. 96,922, while the Bajaj Avenger 180 Street retails at Rs. 87,827 (Both the prices are Ex-showroom Delhi).
Apart from the introduction of ABS and probably a rear disc brake as well, they may not feature any mechanical or cosmetic updates. The Avenger 220 range is powered by a 220 cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled, DTSi engine that pumps out 19 PS of maximum power and 17.5 Nm of peak torque. The Avenger 180, on the other hand, sources power from a 178 cc motor that produces 15.5 PS of power and 13.7 Nm of peak torque. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed transmission.
