Images floating on the web have confirmed Bajaj Auto’s plans to bring back the Avenger 220 Street. The Avenger Cruise and Street variants were introduced in 2015 and have multiple engine options. However, the Avenger 220 Street was discontinued in 2020, owing to more customer preferences towards the Cruise variant.

The bike features the same instrument cluster as before with an amber backlight
The soon-to-be-launched Avenger 220 Street features the same design as its predecessor while adopting body parts and components from the Avenger 160 Street. This includes the headlamp with LED DRL, taillight, handlebar, side mirrors, alloys, and seats. It gets the same digital instrumentation as before but with an amber backlight. The motorcycle will come with a ground clearance of 169 mm and a saddle height of 737 mm, making it more accessible for riders of shorter stature. Its kerb weight will be 163 kg, which is the same as the Avenger 220 Cruise.
In terms of cycle parts, the motorcycle comes with a 280 mm disc brake with a two-piston caliper at the front and a 130 mm drum brake at the rear. This is coupled with a single-channel ABS system with rear-wheel lift protection. On the suspension side of things, the Avenger 220 Street is suspended by a telescopic fork at the front and twin shock absorbers with five-step preload adjustment at the rear.
