Bajaj is India’s most loved brand which initially manufactured scooters and soon shifted to producing motorcycles as the latter were becoming more and more popular among the Indian customers who wanted a change from those two stroke, economical two–wheelers to more powerful four-stroke bikes.
Till date the company has been responsible for a number of bikes which had set and still setting the sales charts on fire.The line-up includes Platina 100, Platina 125, CT100, Boxer BM 100, Discover 100, Discover 135, Pulsar 150,Pulsar 180,Avenger 200,Pulsar 200 and Pulsar 220.
If we carefully observe the growth of the company in terms of number of units it has sold of each bike,the Bajaj Avenger probably stands at the last place. Although the bike was powerful enough to turn a few heads,at the time of its launch the sales were severely affected by the existing as well as cheaper Yamaha Enticer.
Now the company has put in a bunch of efforts aimed at bringing the Avenger to a position which the bike deserved since its launch.The company has introduced Bajaj Avenger 220 which is expected to bring the charm back to it and could contribute to the existing sales figures.
On talking to an official from the company,he stated “Yes, the Avenger 220 is very much on the cards. We have not stopped Avenger’s production but its 200cc engine has been upgraded to 220cc. This engine is similar to the one on Bajaj Pulsar 220. All details will be shared once we officially launch this model.”
