It is the new entry-level cruiser that offers great value for money

Verdict – The new Avenger Street 180 is the latest addition to the Avenger series, and it is a bike with a perfect combination of proportions, stance and details. New styling elements make it look more appealing and it looks attractive in this red shade. The main highlight of this motorcycle is its pricing. It is Rs. 20,000/- cheaper than its closest rival, the Suzuki Intruder, and in whose price segment, the Street 220 and Cruise 220 are offered (they are Rs. 10,000/- cheaper too). And at that price point, the Avenger 180 is bang for your buck as it is urban and modern and also ergonomically comfortable. Though there are a few drawbacks, its positives make us overlook them as it is also the most affordable cruiser on offer in India currently.

The headlight, LED DRLs and smoked visor look identical to that of the Street 220’s

What’s Cool

* Design and modern looks
* Engine refinement and slick gearbox
* Suspension and the paint job

What’s Not So Cool

* Front disc brake lacks bite
* Vibrations kicking in at higher RPMs
* No rear disc, no ABS

Red paintjob on this bike looks really nice
