The Two-wheeler manufacturer Bajaj’s popular Two wheeler Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS’s ex-showroom price will be Rs 81,036 (Pune). The bike is expected to arrive at Bajaj dealerships in a matter of a week to ten day’s time.
According to sources, The company will price the upcoming Avenger 160 ABS at just Rs 81,036 (ex-showroom Pune). If this figure is to be believed, it'll make the Avenger 160 ABS around Rs 7,000 cheaper than the Avenger 180 which never offered the safety feature. The entry-level cruiser is also expected to hit Bajaj showrooms in the first week of May 2019. But more competitive pricing isn't all the Avenger 160 has in its bag, and the bike is also expected to have a higher torque figure. This is because it uses the 160.3cc motor from the NS160, which produces 15.5hp at 8,500rpm and 14.6Nm of torque at 6,500rpm on the NS. In comparison, the Avenger 180 made 15.5hp at 8,500rpm and 13.7Nm of torque at 6,500rpm.
To keep it going as the most-affordable Avenger variant, it will continue missing out on the digital instrument cluster seen on the Avenger 220s, and use an analogue gauge instead. Like the 180, the 160 will use a telescopic fork and twin rear shock absorbers.
If launched at such a competitive price tag, the Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS will undercut it's only rival the Suzuki Intruder (starts at Rs 1.03 lakh) by an even bigger margin than before.
