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 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.

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.
