Bajaj Avenger 200 DTSi Review

by Deepak on November 27, 2009

Harley Davidson has been a brand that carved a niche for its own, it wasn’t too long after when other brands followed suit. Although HD’s have always been far superior in almost all aspects, there have always been drawbacks with the machine, primarily its huge size, price tag and maintenance costs. Apart from these big boy machines, there are surprisingly several other alternatives that are much easier on the pocket. We take a look at a home bred alternative to cruisers, say hello to the Bajaj Avenger 200 DTSi

Bajaj Avenger 200 DTSi (4)

If you may remember, the avenger was advertised with a catchy tune and a tagline “Feel like God”. It was a welcome addition to the choices of bikes in the Indian market with Bajaj putting in considerable effort to keep it updated and simplified despite its relatively low sales figures. It was first introduced with a 180cc engine borrowed from the Pulsar range of bikes, now though, it features the 200cc engine from the Pulsar 200 that we all know and love.

It appeals to those who love riding, who love the freedom and the liberation that a bike offers, it’s not the fastest or the most bad ass looking bike on the street, but what it is, is something much more, it’s a machine built with a pure purpose, to show how every journey can be a pleasure. If you are one of those thrill seeking seasoned riders, this is not for you. An individual with a unruffled and composed self would love it much more than any other.

Bajaj Avenger 200 DTSi (5)

Krishna Kumar, an avid reader of BikeAdvice, is an expatriate residing in Qatar, he drove around a four wheeler until once he felt the impulse to get his hands on a bike, he wanted something unique, not too expensive and stylish. After a while of researching, he stumbled upon the Avenger 200 which fit the bill perfectly. We review the Bajaj Avenger 200 sold here, In India, which happens to be identical to its exported counterpart. Read on…

Engine and Performance

As said earlier, it features the 200cc engine borrowed from the Pulsar 200 which is known for its great overall performance and efficiency; the oil cooled mill is mated to a five speed transmission which is also quite similar to the Pulsar’s. Bajaj claims a top speed of around 115Km/h, with a power rating of 17.5 Ps at 8000Rpm and 16.78Nm at 6000 Rpm, the advantage of oil cooling is that it helps maintain a steady oil temperature during hard riding and high heat conditions. In real life, the engine feels quite the same as the 200’s with a difference in power delivery due to the 15 Inch tyres at the rear, the smaller rims ensures better acceleration at the expense of top speed and also ensures that there is usable power across the rev range. This is well suited for touring across long distances.

Bajaj Avenger 200 DTSi (2)

The 15 inch wheels also reduces the need for gear shifts every once in a while making for a stress free journey, speaking of which, the gearbox used is the same as on the Pulsar, one common critique you would find of this ‘box is that it lacks the feel that most shifters have and finding neutral can be a little tricky. Bajaj also claims a mileage of around 35 Km/l, which is another drawback of having a low diameter tyre in the back. On the road, however, it barely feels stressed out at around 70-80 Km/h and is always ready to lunge forward with the flick of the wrist. The exhaust note is completely different from the Pulsar machines with the chunky and short silencer. It sounds more refined and less strained at any given RPM.

Ride, Suspension and Brakes

As soon as you sit on the bike, you would notice that it feels quite stable already, it feels balanced right away courtesy of the wide rear tyres, long wheelbase and kicked out front forks, for a person who is used to riding around the usual 150cc bikes, it can take a while to get used to but when you do, it feels great. The bikes straight line stability is commendable. Cornering capability may not be its strongest points but it does it acceptably well. Being a cruiser, the riding position is relaxed and comfortable, the gear shifter and brakes are positioned up front which helps in keeping the legs relaxed at all times; it could have been a little bit better if Bajaj had used footboards instead of foot pegs for the rider. The riding position is great for the open roads where you can go on and on but it surprisingly feels quite flickable in the city areas too thanks to the low centre of gravity.

Bajaj Avenger 200 DTSi

The suspension is adjustable at the rear with 5 settings for preload, it basically makes the ride firmer or softer, the firmer setting can be used when riding with a pillion and the softer can be used when cruising alone, either way, the seating position complements the suspension system to provide a comfortable way to eat up the roads. On really shattered roads, you may feel a little stress on your back but otherwise, it is stable, planted and comfortable as wrinkles and undulations on the road can barely be felt.

It features a 260mm Disc at the front coupled with a 130mm Drum at the rear, on tricky surfaces like mud or wet roads, the bike would feel wobbly under hard braking, you would need a little practice to understand how it should be done, avoid lockups and its fine. The brakes are sharp and accurate.

Looks and Features

The bike sports a classic look with various chrome finished parts and a body that looks like a Harley Davidson. The Fuel gauge is mounted on the tank with other indicators; you can also have a front windshield installed on the bike from Bajaj which can keep the wind away; this in our opinion doesn’t look too good on the bike and also distorts objects when seen through it. Being plastic we believe it can get scratched with time and can turn into a difficulty when riding at night.

Bajaj Avenger 200 DTSi (3)

The view from front with the long front shocks and the chrome speedo is quite cool and appealing, one thing about cruiser bikes like these is that they never really run out of appeal, unlike bikes in other segments whose designs become boring with time, this machine can stay trendy for years to come, it sports a timeless appeal which only well designed cruisers possess. The rear backrest, the chrome around the headlight, the wire spoked wheels and a lot of other elements make this bike stand out from the crowd, you can trust it to stay as appealing as it is today, 5 years from now, provided its well taken care of.

BikeAdvice Verdict

With the current craze being all about fast bikes with the highest top speeds, the Bajaj Avenger 200 DTSi is one that is not too common on the roads, and because of this, you would notice that it attracts a lot of eyeballs. A dude on the bike with an open face helmet and a pair of shades would be instantly christened “cool”. If you are a guy with a reservation, about what your bike should be, similar to Kishore’s then this is definitely the bike for you. It’s simple, well designed, has good manners, its practical, inexpensive with a price tag of around 66,000 Rs (Showroom, Mumbai), and comfortable.

Arun

The reason why we do not see too much of Avenger TV commercials is because that this bike is not meant for the mass audience. It appeals only to a very target group of people.

If you ask me just one reason why I like and respect Bajaj, Avenger would be my answer. :)

I own a avenger 180 2005 model. Some of the highlights of the bike are hassle free starts early morning even if you had not ridden the bike for 4-5 days at a stretch. The bike is surprisingly nimble within city and one does not lose balance slow speeds. On the flip side, rear seat is a problem as its hard and a small seating area, rear shocks are hard and the rear brakes are a big let down. The bike has been consistently giving 40-42 Kmpl within city driving conditions and close to 47 Kmpl on the highways. Clutch cable is prone to failure, myself having changed 7 clutch cables from 2005 until now (bike has clocked 20,500 kms only). Servicing at the bajaj probiking showroom Cochin is quite good and the service managers are quite response.

Overall, a good package for solo driving. Definitely value for money.

When it comes to cruiser bikes, Bajaj Avenger is one of the only options we have these days and considering the cost of the bike its not a bad deal. But this bike starts vibrating as you cross 70kmph speed. The suspension needs improvement as well, it has a tendency to throw you off the seat as soon as you come on a bumpy road.The meter console is very ordinary with the much desired tacho meter missing from it. The brakes are not that good when you are on a wet road. one of the most irritating thing which i felt for this bike is that the handle lock requires a lot of practice and effort to lock/unlock it. Once you have unlocked the handle, you then have to bend down to the left searching for the ignition of the bike.

What 70 kmph? I dont know ,but I myself ride Avenger 200cc at a speed of 150kmph…Its quite Stable at 150kmph also..

Reply

Ishan December 1, 2009 at 8:36 pm

@ above
You are completely wrong, there is absolutely no vibrations on high speeds. Forget 70km/h, bike is rock stable even at 90 km/h. In fact avenger is one among those bikes in indian market which do not vibrate at high speeds….

bajaj is very confident and strong about its products and its self tranfsormes truely indian.all bajaj bikes are worth of purchase,but its just the matter of choice. the pulsar and avenger are given the same engine, one is with sporty look and great performence and the other one is strong and comfortable

Abraham March 1, 2010 at 1:17 pm

I have been using a Bajaj Avenger 180 for over four years. It is one of the best bikes I have ever rode. The highlights of this bike are:

1. Looks – Stop at the RED traffic light and you see others enthusiastically gazing at you. That feels great! You are the most important person there, unless someone has an imported bike.

2. Pickup – Race from the GREEN light and no one, except a Pulsar 220 and an old Yamaha 350 (Torque Induction)have beat me so far.

3. Speed – While most Indian bikes can reach speeds over 80kms, practically none can sustain it. On an Avenger you can sustain an easy 90kmph, without vibrations or loss of stability and control.

Drawbacks:

1. It is not a city bike. In city traffic with too many twists and turns, others tend to get ahead of you.

2. Larger turning radius due to longer frame.

3. Non-availability of spare parts.

Eagerly waiting for: The Avenger 250, if there is one.

Hi,
I have recently purchased a red avenger and its a very comfortable ride,for a bike at that price range,yes i agree, the bike should have a kick start option,although you can push and kick start as an alternative,should the need arise,so called high speed handling?smooth at up to 110,so far, have not gone beyond still running in.overall a steal and YES it does RaIse eyebrows especially with the chicks,ment for a mature adventurous type of personality,Service at Anantapur dealer Excellent,sales and management VERY POOR, The manager needs a lesson in communication and the customer is First and Always right lesson,

Hi guys I’m Murthy using avenger 200 from 2 yrs by my experience
the advantages of this bike are
1. Stylish, Unique look.
2. Comfort seating for rider.
3. Good economy when compared to Other 180/200cc bikes.
4. Good starting pickup.

And the major disadvantages are
1. the bike vibrates after 70kmph.
2. It tends to through out the rider in high speed.
3. Rear shock system is very poor, very hard.
4. rear seating is not good.
5. Spares are not easily available and costlier.
6. top speed hardly 130kMph i..e less for a 200cc bike
7. Turning radius is more so problem for city riding.
8. Poor rear brake system.

Shan December 22, 2011 at 3:12 pm

HI All,

My Avenger is about 4.5 years old. It’s giving me a mileage of over 40km/l as of now with average speed of 60 – 70kmph. This bike has gone for long trips like trips to Munar and ooty from Chennai and not at a single point was there a complain.
I saw above that one of our friend is getting shaky feeling after 70, please have a check for the frame of the bike. It happened with a new ZMR recently. The faulty peace came from the factory and 99% of the people do not understand these kind of issues while they drive bcos they drive for the heck of it. Also bajaj’s own mechanic are literally hopeless, for everything thing they ask you to replace it. So try to get a good mechanic in your city and ask them to take a good care of timing chain and also on the combustion ration. Change the engine oil frequently as thats like a blood for the bikes and the more fresh it is, the better life and performance it gives. It’s the same for all bikes and so this is no exceptional. And finally about the mileage again, well, you should know it from before that high CC engine dont give good KMs…. So stop crying and better go for 100CC CT100 or Platina….. Always remember while you ride it “Feel Like God”..take care

Devjan August 16, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Hi,

Buying a second hand bike, brings you an extra cost of maintainence. Be well informed about the parts available of the 220cc model of Avenger (Of course, u should buy that one only). After 2-3 servicing the bike gives a mileage of 40-47 km/ ltr on highways, 32-37 km/ltr on city roads.

In 150cc segments, to get best looks, engine masculinity(sound), definitely yamaha fz-s. Mileage will be 50km/ltr min. on avg.
In 220cc segments, classic looks, comfort, permormance on almost all types of roads, any time go for avenger-220cc dtsi. Mileage, after 1st servicing on avg will be 35km/ltr, though it depends upon how you drive.

Dear Rishabh,
I hv bought an avenger-220 dtsi.
1. U hv 2 put and extra pressure and twist the key slowly clockwise, then the handle will be locked.
2. Producing heat, after how much usage ? 10 mins ? 15 mins ?
3. This a problem, which I hv faced too. Clean up ur bike chain, with kerosine, chain lubricants, brush, clean cloths, once in a month.

Dear Bikers,

I am new into biking. Earlier experience only in gear less bikes. i am interested to buy the new Avenger 220. I request your suggestion for the below please:

1. Is the Bike expensive in maintenance, i mean are spare parts costly and hard to find?
2. I am prone to upper back ache due to tall height, is is a problem to manage this bike?
3. My usage is likely to be less regular mostly in weekends, is it hard to maintain?

Would greatly appreciate if you could please advise. Moreover the current price on road in Kolkata is Rs 93000 approx which is a huge investment for a novice biker like me but i have liked this bike by its looks and have read the reviews over the net which is mostly satisfactory. I am 6 feet 1 inches in height. Kindly advise.

Regards & Thanks,
Shoubhik Bandyopadhyay
