We were the first to bring you news about the new Bajaj Avenger 400. Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director, Bajaj Auto had also confirmed about more action within the Avenger series. The Dominar 400 has taken Bajaj to a new level and the company wants to offer this engine is a differently styled bike. Bajaj Auto is looking at offering the same engine in a new cruiser. The Avenger comes with a 150cc and 220cc engine.

A 400cc Avenger will give an edge to the company to take on rivals like Royal Enfield. There is no other cruiser, currently in this segment. There are cruiser bikes from UM, they are under 300cc. The new 400cc bike may not carry Avenger branding. There might be a new sub-brand in place. What will the new Bajaj Avenger 400 be like? Will it be worth buying. We share some details.

Bajaj Avenger 400 Launch Date

The Bajaj Avenger 400 will be launched likely by mid to late 2018. There a a few buyers eyeing this cruiser segment. However, Bajaj will have an advantage in pricing it competitively. It will be the only cruiser in the 400cc segment, currently. Cruiser bikes are a niche and the demand is on the rise.

Bajaj Avenger 400 Price

on-road, Delhi
Minimum Price1.6 lakhs
Maximum Price₹1.8 Lakhs

The Bajaj Avenger 400 to is expected to be priced between ₹1.6 lakhs and ₹1.8 lakhs (on-road). This will be the company’s first cruiser bike in 400cc. The Dominar 400 is already well established and is the company’s first 400cc bike. The cruiser bike will probably have a new brand name. It will follow the Avenger design DNA, but it will be a lot more bigger, wider and longer too.

Design

The new 400cc bike will have a new body. It will be underpinned by a modified Avenger chassis.The length and width will be more than the current Avenger. The chassis will be stronger to support the load and vibrations of the larger engine. The Bajaj Avenger 400 will be powered by a liquid cooled, single-cylinder 373cc engine that generate power close to 35-38bhp and have a healthy torque of 32-34Nm. This engine will come mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

The Avenger 400 will have the same engine that also powers the Bajaj Dominar 400. The Avenger 400 will be the next big capacity bike from the company. The engine will be tuned to offer more torque and cruising ability rather than outright power. This will be the USP of this new bike. It will target the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 mainly and also the 500 to an extent. The high point will be the more powerful engine as compared to the Thunderbird 350 and 500. It will also be more refined. Royal Enfield is the one of the fastest growing bike companies in the last couple of years and Bajaj might be the first company to enter the cruiser bike segment to compete with this Eicher Group’s product.

The pricing of the Avenger 400 will be key to attract customers. Bajaj will try and price it as aggressively as the Dominar 400. This will help Bajaj to capture a different set of audience too. This is one of the market segments that is growing very fast and Bajaj will not want to lose out of time to enter it. The company will try to beat the dominance of Royal Enfield in this segment.

    If this 400 cc cruiser is bigger in length and height to make it look similar to Harley, then it’ll become a very big competition against RE.

    I’ve been using the avenger since its launch ( the first batch ) . I am eagerly waiting for the 400cc . I hope they make it sturdier with better suspensions . I adore the old single color bikes with the dash of chrome it has , they look great ! The new bike should be a little different than the current fleet of avengers , it should stand apart ( not like the bullet’s ) .
    I hope they don’t dilute the avenger brand .

    Petrol tank should not be as flat as now. It should be fitted in a more slanding position. This will give a better look.

    Old chassis is OK but not accept ed by many riders.It has pros and CO’s. So you design chassis as normal like royal field or As .

Bajaj CT 100: Commuter bike icon

Published

bajaj-ct100

Starting its life as Bajaj Boxer, this bike had a name change as the Bajaj CT 100. Bajaj stopped production in 2006 to give way for the Bajaj Platina. But in 2015 due to nostalgic feel and demand Bajaj launched this evergreen bike again. This Bajaj CT 100 has had a career longer than that of the Undertaker and has been unbeaten. Built to rival tanks, loved in rural and urban markets and passed by many fathers to their son’s. Are just a few traits of the CT 100. I was not fortunate enough to learn on the Bajaj CT 100 but I surely learnt on the Bajaj Chetak. Now in 2017 just two years after the re-launch let’s have a look at how this bike is doing.

Bajaj V15 Review

Published

By

Bajaj V15 Vikrant

A commuter bike that will have cafe racer type styling. This was a very good concept by Bajaj. Even though this concept was started by Hero on its Splendor Classic Pro. Bajaj got it on a 150cc bike. This will improve the performance and they tuned the exhaust for a good note. To add more value to it, there was the INS Vikrant metal added to it. This attracted more buyers to it. Bajaj as a brand has been innovative with this bike and the company is looking at adding more variants to the Bajaj V15 or as some call it Vikrant bike.

At the moment, it comes with a stylish design and high quality paint job. The 150cc engine churns about 12bhp of power and 13Nm of torque. This engine comes mated to a five-speed transmission. This is the same engine like that on the Avenger, but it has been tweaked for different throttle performance.

Bajaj V12 launched with disc brake version

Published

on

By

Bajaj has introduced the V12 with a disc brake now. The disc brake is only for the front and it costs INR 3,000 more than the drum brake version. The V12 is more like the stripped down version of the V15, which was launched in early 2016. This also gets the Vikrant metal, which is the marketing strategy of the company. Bajaj is looking at offering front disc brake for those who are looking at better safety on their bike. This is an exciting bike if you look at it from the point-of-view of Indian history.
