“I think I will buy one for myself”

Its stylish look caught the eyes of many on the way


First of all I was excited to test ride the new Bajaj Avenger Cruise220 as it was recently launched in the Nepali market. Since childhood, I was interested in sports bikes but wanted to try this cruiser for a change. So, I couldn’t resist test riding this stylish cruiser bike.

The test ride of the bike began from the office of The Himalayan Times at Anamnagar to Bhaisepati and back. At first, I was confused about the rider’s leg rest on the bike as I was not familiar with the bike. However, I soon managed to tame the bike and bring it under control.

It was an awesome experience riding the Avenger Cruise220. It is really a powerful bike. I was impressed by its powerful pickup. As I checked its acceleration, I discovered that this bike delivers a thrilling speed — it was pretty fast. Moreover, I liked the sound of the bike while riding — it sounded smooth.

Riding this bike on the busy streets of Kathmandu and Lalitpur, I was impressed with the easy handling this bike offers, which is a must in the congested roads of the valley. Similarly, prompt application of brakes is yet another feature that ensures safety and stability of the bike and the rider.

The bike is equipped with a backrest, which I think will surely add comfort to the pillion rider while on a long ride. Likewise, I found the rider’s seat equally luxurious. Its stylish look caught the eyes of many on the way. After taking this bike on a test ride, I think I will buy one for myself. Lastly, I would like to tell cruiser lovers that they should at least take this bike out once for a test ride.
