After a long time almost 3 years, we are comparing the same models different variants, previously we have compared Bajaj Avenger 220 versus Avenger 200 in January-2011. Now here’s a fun series of photos that we snapped while we were out snapping the Mahindra XUV500 W4 variant at India Garage (Exclusive Mahindra dealer), Bangalore. Since we had the opportunity to shoot an top-end W8 variant and an base W4 variant side by side, we jumped at it just for fun! Enjoy the small set of photos.

Also note that to set apart the top-end W8 variant from its lesser siblings, Mahindra & Mahindra has repositioned the badges and added a new ‘W8’ badge on the bootlid.
 
Check out more pictures after a jump.
