Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS
Market status: Available in Bangladesh
Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS is probably a name not so familiar among bikers, yet. However, the name Bajaj Avenger is a fairly common name among bikers. Most bikers know Avenger as one of the very few budget cruisers available in Bangladesh. This is mostly because there aren’t many trustworthy brands that bring cruisers to Bangladesh. After years of ruling the highways, Bajaj has finally brought a new addition to the lineup. Here we will be talking about the Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS.
Bajaj is one of the biggest motorcycle manufacturers in the South Asian region. Bajaj has such influence that they have also joined hands with a few of the top motorcycle manufacturers. Some notable examples are Kawasaki and KTM. Bajaj has quite a lot of motorcycle series that have been deemed renowned by bikers. Some of these series are the Pulsar series, Avenger series, Dominar series, and many more. The Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS came out in 2019 and instantly churned out curiosity.
The Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS is a cruiser by Bajaj. It has all the characteristics of a proper cruiser. The bike has a stretched-out seat with pushed-forward footpegs. All of this is topped with raised handlebars and a long windshield. The overall bike is perfect for comfortable touring. The rear of the Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS also has a huge grabrail for the pillion to hold on to.
The Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS comes with the classic circular instrument cluster. However, they have not updated the instrument cluster in any way, shape, or form. The instrument cluster includes only the speedometer, odometer, and trip meter. The speedometer is analog, while the other features are digital. The fuel indicator and other necessary indicators are located on the top of the tank.
The Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS comes with single-channel ABS. The single-channel ABS is set up at the front only. The rear does have a speed counter, but it doesn’t have any ABS. The ABS brings the braking of the bike to a whole different level.
The bike comes with a mixture of halogen and LED lights. The headlight is a halogen bulb. It would have been better for touring if the front had an LED. The taillight is an LED unit. The indicators are bulb indicators. Then overall light set up may not be the best, but it is adequate. There are also LED DRLs.
Engine and Transmission:
As the Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS is a cruiser, it has a low saddle-height of 737mm. Regardless of the low saddle, the ground clearance is 169mm which is adequate. At this ground clearance, the bike may have difficulty passing some of the speed bumps but can get through most. The bike also has a fuel tank of only 13liters. The fuel tank will make sure you don’t have difficulty on long rides.
The length, width, height, and weight of the Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS are 2210mm, 806mm, 1070mm, and 156kg respectively. The bike is naturally on the heavier side as this is a cruiser. The bike was made to conquer the highways, not the city streets, hence the weight is good enough. The bike has an average wheelbase of 1490mm, which makes sure that the bike is stable in the corners.
Engine and Transmission:
The Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS comes with a hybrid engine. The hybrid contains the DNA of the Bajaj Avenger 180 and Bajaj Pulsar NS160’s engine. It has a single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 2-valve, and 165cc engine. The engine is fuel injected and Air-cooled and has DTS-i technology. The engine pumps out around 15PS of power at 8500rpm and 13.7Nm of torque at 7000rpm. The engine is quite smooth, but at higher RPMs, there are chances of vibrations.
The Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS has a wet multi-plate clutch system. It has a 5-speed gearbox, which is suitable for cruising. The bike is expected to have a top speed of around 115-125kmph.
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheels:
The Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS has a disc-drum brake setup. The front brake is a disc brake that comes with ABS, and the rear brake is a drum. The front brake is expected to perform quite well, as the disc has a large radius of 280mm and also because of the ABS. The rear wheel would have performed its best if it had a disc brake instead of a drum.
The front of the Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS has telescopic forks as the suspension and the rear has two 5-step adjustable shock-absorbing suspensions. The front suspension is expected to respond well as most telescopic suspensions do. The rear suspension will perform better due to the adjustability, which is a function more than often too rare. As this is a cruiser, the bike is also not made to lean too much during cornering so the twin shocks are expected to perform well.
The Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS has alloy wheels. The front and the rear wheels have 90/90-17 and 130/90-15 section tires respectively. The tire setup is good, as this setup allows maximum grip. However, if the rear tire was a bit wider, the grip of the bike would have been better.
Pros and Cons:
There are quite a few pros and cons of the Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS. They are mentioned below:
Smooth and powerful engine.
Vibrations at high RPMs.
Not enough information in the instrument cluster.
The Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS is a bike for touring lovers. The bike is for the tourers. This bike is for people who want to ride comfortably on the Dhaka-Chittagong highway. These bikes are for people of all ages. Anyone can enjoy this bike, but people under 5’4″ may find it difficult to control this bike as the footpegs are a tad bit further away.
There are very few cruisers in Bangladesh, hence the competitors of this bike are very few.

Overall, the Bajaj Avenger 160 ABS is a good cruiser. It is good enough for Bangladesh. An upgrade by Bajaj was long overdue. We hope that we get more cruisers in Bangladesh soon as more people are becoming interested in touring.
