Since there is virtually no competition .?? When other manufacturers go over the top to proclaim new stickers on existing bikes as all new models. Why. It has now been a few weeks since the Avenger 180 DTSi has been replaced with the new Avenger 200 DTSi. The small cruiser is still a niche segment in India. Forget TV Ads.

Like the Pulsar 200 DTSi. the Avenger 200 DTSi also does away with the kick lever and goes in just with the Electric Start. The side panel now sports a “200 Oil Cooled” sticker. it’s almost impossible to distinguish the now discontinued Avenger 180 DTSi from the new Avenger 200 DTSi.. why bother to spend crores of moolah on promotion.for the Avenger in this segment. .!! Styling: Apart from an optional windshield. The previous “Avenger” moniker has now been shifted from the side panels to the Tank. Thankfully the engine covers and the cylinders have not been doused in black color. After all there are Bloggers like me to bring you the test ride and review all for free.

But hey. The feet are placed forward with the arms outstretched. The Avenger is the closest that our “desi” bikers can get to that kind of Americana on Indian roads and by spending Indian money.!! That’s what you get in a cruiser. The jerky clutch that used to plague earlier versions of the Pulsars has become almost perfect now and the clutch of the Avenger also is free from any issues. But with all that chrome. Ride Experience: Riding position: For any who has ridden street bikes all his life. Clutch & Gearbox: Press the thumb start and the Avenger immediately settles into a smooth idle.The Avenger 200 DTSi still retains the chrome-laden charm of a low-slung cruiser. The brand that comes to everyone’s mind when talking about “cruisers” is Harley Davidson. the low seat of the Avenger feels a little awkward.. One of the vivid memories of my childhood is the image of Arnold Schwarzenegger on the Harley in the movie Terminator. . But it takes only a few minutes to get used to this comfortable riding posture. It also retains the somewhat awkward ignition switch for which you have to fish under the petrol tank. The petrol tank now also houses a small fuel indicator along with the telltale lights. the sunlight does find its way to your eyes.

one cannot expect to attack the corners like one would on a Pulsar. Ride quality on smooth roads remains ok. Although the Avenger handles quite well.The same cannot be said about the gears though. the gearbox was thankfully free from any false neutrals. So I was a bit sceptical on how the short stroke engine of the Pulsar 200 DTSi would perform on the Avenger. But to enjoy the bike the most. Ride: The ride quality of the Avenger isn’t exactly plush. Even though the gears are smooth to operate they still could do with a little bit of more feel. Engine Performance: Cruisers are supposed to be made for easy and relaxed riding. Also like the Pulsars finding neutral is an art that needs to be mastered. but show the Avenger some bad roads and the road irregularities will get transmitted mildly to your spine. The engine pulled quite effortlessly in every gear. Braking: . That being said. it is better not to stress the engine too much. But just a few minutes on the Avenger was enough to dispel any doubts. the handling of the Avenger with the long wheelbase and kicked out front forks. Handling: For someone who has always ridden road bikes. need some time to get used to.

So the low seat of the Avenger provided me with the rare opportunity to put both my feet flat firmly on the ground. the bike might slide under hard braking. . This meant that I could play around with the Avenger with gay abandon. The Avenger could have included flat footboards instead of the front foot pegs. I gathered some momentum on the bike and then hit the brakes hard.I had come across about discussion in a few Internet forums about the braking of the Avenger 180 being prone to sliding under hard braking. in the process I probably lost a bit of respect for the bike. So I decided to test it for myself. Maybe as the tyres get old and hard. Also the rear seat is a bit narrow and the pillion on the Avenger would definitely require more frequent butt breaks especially on long journeys.. Probably even scare you with its limits. At 5 ft 5 inches I literally have to be on my toes (Pun Intended) on almost every other bike in the country including my own Pulsar 220 DTS-Fi. Fuel Efficiency: According to Auto Magazines you can expect a mileage figure of around 35 Kmpl from the Avenger 200 DTSi Conclusion: Even though I thoroughly enjoyed the ride on the Avenger. For me a bike has to evoke a feeling of respect for it. I have to say that the brakes were quite impressive and the bike halted without any issue. but then this is true for any bike.

There should be something extra left in the bike that should challenge you to test its limits. Single cylinder Displacement: 198.7 bhp/Tonne Starting: Electric Start only Idle speed: 1400 ± 100 .
