As per the latest buzz, Bajaj is planning to take the Avenger brand upmarket by developing a more powerful variant of its new Avenger motorcycle. The heavier, more powerful avenger likely to be known as Avenger 400.
It will the lead the avenger series with its 373.2cc engine, followed by two 220cc and one 150cc variant. The bike is expected to carry the same 373.2cc engine seen in the KTM Duke and RC 390. However, the engine will be re-worked to offer better cruising abilities.
A source close to the company reveals: “In terms of extending the brand to the more premium end , the company could well position a 375cc Avenger in the market to unsettle Royal Enfield’s hold in the mid-size segment. This would depend on the product packaging, the feel, sound, pricing and many other crucial factors”.
