Bajaj Auto Ltd. could soon come up with a really substantial update for the Avenger, which is the only cruiser in the motorcycle manufacturer’s product portfolio. The Bajaj Avenger is currently on sale with 150cc and 220cc engines. However, if speculations are anything to go by the 2017 Avenger model range will get a 373cc mill, too. This new engine variant will be marketed as the Avenger 400 and is likely to launch in coming months. The 2017 Bajaj Avenger 400 will follow the Dominar 400, which is the first Bajaj to get the 373cc single-cylinder engine from the KTM 390 Duke.
