Bajaj Auto claims the Avenger is the first bike to switch to BS-IV, it isn’t true as claimed

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.
