Bajaj Avenger 220 Cons
The Bazar Avenger 220 has chrome on the exhaust and various body parts that are rusted in places. Bike pillion seat is not so comfortable. The seat height is quite low and the forward set footpegs will take a few days to get used to.
Also the braking system of Bajaj Avenger 220 is not very strong. Drum brakes are still used on the rear wheels. Although the front disc brake is standard, Bajaj has not made the rear disc optional. Dual channel antilock braking system is not available in older versions of the bike. Moreover, the bike’s long wheelbase is both a plus and a minus. Riding a bike at a small angle through heavy traffic is difficult enough.
