The Bajaj Avenger 220 is basically the improved version of the old Avenger 180. The new bike features an elegant design, longer handlebars and a large windshield. You also get a pretty big tank which features an ergonomic design and delivers a pretty generous range.
The engine was borrowed from the Pulsar 220 and Street Fighter 220. It develops a maximum power of 19.03 @ 8400 and 17.5 Nm of torque @ 7000. The engine features digital twin spark ignition for efficient combustion. For increased performances the Avenger 220 is also equipped with the ExhausTEC system which improves engine torque at low revs without compromising anything at mid or high engine revs.
Another interesting feature is the third generation throttle ignition control system. This system allows you to control the ignition by operating the throttle. It also helps in achieving a good balance between driveability and optimum ignition spark advance, resulting in an almost perfect ignition spark advance for every throttle opening and engine rpm.
