The Bajaj Avenger has been around for close to two decades and over the years it has carved quite a niche for itself. After all, it brought the quintessential cruiser stance, style and attitude at a price that didn't need one to break the bank. With no competition to face, the Avenger had the market all to itself, continuing to sell in strong numbers, especially post the 2015 face lift.
