2019 Bajaj Avenger Road 180 ABS teased – Launch quickly – RushLane
The Bajaj Avenger Road 180 ABS has been teased, forward of its sale debut which is about to occur within the coming days. The Avenger 220 Cruise and Road variants obtained the protection function not too long ago.
At INR 1.02 lakhs (ex-showroom, Pune), the ABS replace has made the Avenger 220 dearer by INR 6,700 and we count on an analogous inflation in Avenger Road 180’s worth as properly. For reference, the non-ABS model retails at INR 86,611 (ex-showroom, Pune).
As with the larger engined variants, the Avenger Road 180 ABS has completely no visible adjustments. The compact displacement continues to make use of 260 mm entrance disc (now supported by single-channel ABS) and 130 mm rear drum brake. The replace makes all the Avenger household compliant with the brand new security rules that can come into impact from April 2019.
Bajaj has been updating its fashions with ABS (above 125 cc) and CBS (sub-125 cc) one after the other. Some fashions obtained different minor updates whereas the remaining solely obtained the protection function. The Pune-based two wheeler maker witnessed double digit progress in December 2018 and January 2019, whereas most of its rivals struggled to filter stock. In actual fact, stock build-up is popping out to be a giant challenge for sellers of Hero Motocorp and Honda.
2019 Bajaj Avenger Road 180 ABS continues to be powered by 180 cc DTS-i air-cooled engine which has been soldiering alongside for years. The motor develops 15.5 PS and 13.7 Nm of torque, and comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The cruiser’s conventional suspension system includes telescopic entrance fork, and twin shock absorbers on the rear. The Road 180 employs 17-inch alloy wheels on the entrance (shod with 90/90-17 tyre) and 15-inch unit on the rear (shod with 130/90-15 tyre).
Similar to the non-ABS model, the Bajaj Avenger Road 180 ABS is on the market in Spicy Pink and Ebony black coloration choices. Salient options embrace LED DRLs, and a compact tinted visor. The Bajaj Avenger sequence has been having a near-monopoly within the compact cruiser section the place the rivals like UM Commando don’t take pleasure in a powerful model pull. We don’t count on any additional updates until the BS-VI emission norms kick in subsequent 12 months (April 2020).
