Bajaj Avenger range – Street 150, Street 220 and Cruise 220 is now compliant with BS IV emission norms.
Strangely, the Bajaj Auto claims that Avenger is the first motorcycle in India to switch to BS-IV emission norms. While the other motorcycles from the same brand, the Pulsar 180 and Pulsar 220F which received the revision last-week for MY2017 complies with BS-IV emission norms. Also the Honda CB Hornet 160R launched last year on August, 19th too is compliant with BS IV emission norms.
The Bajaj Avenger Street 150 comes powered by a 149.5cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled DTS-i unit that develops 14.3 BHP @ 9,000 rpm and 12.5 Nm of torque @ 6,500 rpm. While the Avenger 220s is powered by the 219.89cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled DTS-i engine that produces 8.8 BHP @ 8,400 rpm and 17.5 Nm of torque @ 7,000 rpm.
