Available colours Are :
Though the bike comes with multi spoke wheels but there is disc brake at front tyre. This large ventilated 260 mm hydraulically operated disc brake is highly sensitive and pause the bike at any speed. Whereas the rear brakes is provided with mechanically expanding 130 mm drum type.
This long female's suspension is worth watching. At the front, there is telescopic forks 140 mm. Whereas at the rear, triple rate spring, 5 way adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers that can be adjusted as per the requirement. You can adjust the rear suspension according to total weight and road conditions.
Wheels and Tyres
The awesome bike is one of the longest bike in India and thus having wide tyres and multi spoke chrome plated wheels. The front and rear tyre specifications are 90/90-17 and 130/90-15 respectively.
Wheel Base and Controlling
What can be better than 1475mm of wheel base for this heavy and muscular bike. Obviously, the larger wheel base is a guarantee of safety and solid grip on any surface. You can know the strength of the wide wheel base specially in countryside. But yes, it decrease the mileage for sure.
As far as the comfort is concerned, its a tough job at start with. However, after regular use you can used to drive it smoothly. The riding posture is quite comfortable for city areas as these areas distance might be not longer than 35 to 40 km. But for long drive, we can't suggest this long bike with straight body posture as the rider has to sit in a awkward position. Forward foot riding and stretched arms posture are supposed to be troublesome.
Though pillion rider may feel easy with backrest at rear. Suitable rear grab rail adds to the comfort as well. Footpegs and footrest is there for both ladies and gents. The saddle height is kept low and this, at some extent, trouble the long height rider in standing mode. Even though, stability and control is fine on account of low saddle height and disc brake which provide you better grip on brakes and handlebar.
Overall, the braking is excellent. The beast is best in its segment.
Digital dashboard would be more appealing. The seat for pillion is not much comfortable. And gear box can be improved. The riding experience on rough roads is not satisfactory.
The sporty cruise bike Bajaj Avenger 220 is one of the great performer and the bike is sure to carry sophistication and authentication with it. The bold and robust look of the bike is designed to cater to the needs of the younger crowd. ..
