We told you so! Avenger 180 is here and is replacing the Avenger 150. This variant still undercuts the Intruder 150 and offers insane bang for buck over its rival
Bajaj 180 Avenger is back and how! The cruiser already existed but, was shut down as the Avenger brand grew up in capacity which went from 180, 200 and 220. Today, Bajaj has brought it back along with the 180 and the 220 will exist. This gives it a big edge over the Intruder 150 which is here to take market share from Bajaj in this category. Avenger 150 is gone and it is replaced with this. However, there is still a large gap in the Rs. 70,000 space for a cruiser. Let’s now look at the 180 Avenger details.
2018 Avenger 180 Design and Dimensions
As we have seen earlier that the cruiser gets styling cues from the updated Street and Cruise 220. The headlight and its cowl has changed, smoke effect in the tail-lamps. Subtle changes to the badges and stickers. Side panel and tail-piece see minor changes and so does the tank. All black styling in the lower section to make it more sporty. The gator on the forks also makes it look rather traditional.

The speedometer sadly remains the same as before and isn’t an all digital unit.
2018 Avenger 180 Price and Launch
Launched at Rs. 99,000 on-road in Mumbai and Rs. 83,457 is the ex-showroom Price. The price is very close to the previously sold Avenger 150. We told you Bajaj could offer more value and it has done it with the same. Rs. 15,000 gap between this and the Intruder 150 makes the Avenger insanely appealing with more cubic capacity and power.
