Intruder Now Costlier; Price Comparison With Avengers

We do a quick Avenger vs Intruder price comparison after both Suzuki and Bajaj raised the prices of their cruisers this month…

If you are a cruiser fan, in the entry level space you only have two options to choose from – Suzuki’s Intruder and Bajaj Avenger. Intruder is the most flamboyant-looking cruiser here but it is also the least powerful. Avenger, on the other hand, comes in two variants – with a 160cc engine in ‘Street’ guise and with a more powerful 220cc motor under the ‘Cruise’ styling.
