Bajaj Avenger Street 160 ABS is now available in Nepal.
Hansraj Hulaschand & Co. Pvt. Ltd., the authorized distributor of Bajaj bikes in Nepal, has confirmed the official launch of the all-new Bajaj Avenger 160 in Nepal.
Compared to the previous launches, the new Avenger 160 comes with the improved braking performance, a new 160cc engine along a design refresh.
This might be Avenger’s fourth iteration with a new engine.
We’ve already seen Bajaj Avenger in 220cc, 180cc, and 150cc engine. As time moves along, this will only confuse the traditional consumers. In any case, the 160cc will hopefully stay a bit longer this time around.
Anyways, we’ll talk all about the pricing and availability in a bit. Before that, let’s take a quick look at everything new in the Bajaj Avenger Street 160.

Bajaj Avenger Street 160 ABS Overview
Let’s start with the most noticeable change: the design.
Bajaj Avenger Street 160 gets a more Sportster design, taking key inspiration from its elder 220cc Street sibling.
On the front, it still resembles the classic Avenger look. It comes with a street-control handlebar, unique extended footrest position, alongside a low sung and long seat.
The overall design feels modern with more street-focus aesthetics.
As for a side note, Bajaj Avenger 160 shares a close resemblance with the previous Avenger 150. So, there won’t be any major noticeable difference between the two.
Bajaj Avenger Street 160 ABS is available in two colors: Ebony Black and Spicy Red.
Bajaj Avenger Street 160 is powered by a 160.37cc Single Cylinder, 2-valve, air-cooled, DTS-I Engine.
It can generate a max power of 15PS at 8500rpm and a max torque of 13.5Nm at 7000rpm. Moreover, it is mated to a 5-speed gearbox with a 13-liter fuel tank capacity.
Unfortunately, this is still a BS4-compliant carburetor engine.
Compared to a traditional motorcycle, Bajaj Avenger is a cruiser.
Hence, it gets standard 90/90 17-inch front tyres and 130/90 15-inch rear tyres. Furthermore, it gets a telescopic front suspension and a 5-step adjustable rear twin shock absorber.
Bajaj Avenger Street 160 offers more for the buck! While the lack of Fuel Injection is still unfortunate, it makes up for it in other ways.
Here are the key highlights of everything new in Bajaj Avenger Street 160.

Bajaj Avenger Street 160 ABS Price in Nepal and Availability
Bajaj Avenger 160 Street ABS is now available for purchase from all the Bajaj showrooms across the country.
As for the pricing, Bajaj Avenger 160 Street ABS price in Nepal is Rs. 3,29,900.
Since the price has been revealed, I do have a few thoughts on this matter.
Firstly, Bajaj Avenger 160 still comes with a BS4-compliant carburetor engine. Secondly, the 160cc engine is probably the same one in the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160.
Sure, the single-channel ABS is nice. But it still costs over Rs. 3 Lakhs for the rear Drum variant, with no Disc option!
If that wasn’t enough, Bajaj Avenger 220 price in Nepal is Rs. 3.54 Lakhs!
Theoretically, you could upgrade for a more powerful engine, with a similar experience on offer for an extra Rs. 20,000.
Honestly, the Avenger 220 feels like better value for the money over the Avenger 160.
Bajaj Avenger 160 Street competes with the likes of Suzuki Intruder 150.
