Due to the high price tag and poor mileage, people are not buying the category actually. Besides, most reputed companies yet to launch the cruiser bikes in Bangladesh due to low demand. But last year, Bajaj has launched a cruiser bike here which is known as Avenger Street 150. Since the releasing of the bike, it started to get so popular due to fully advanced technology, low price, and better mileage. Besides, the bike is also very comfortable indeed. Most importantly it was released with a suitable design that compatible with all aged people. Today we are going to make a comparison review between Bajaj Avenger Street 150 and Regal Raptor Spyder. Regal Raptor is a most reputed UK brand and they basically manufacture top rated cruiser bikes. Their few products were released in Bangladesh through the local importer. One of them is Regal Raptor Spyder which is 150 cc top rated cruiser. Considering the brand value, UK brand should be much more reliable than Indian brand but as the newborn in Bangladesh, they are not considered as one of them but people have faith on Indian brand Bajaj most. So, let’s see the details comparison review between the bikes below.
# Looks: Regal Raptor Spyder is pretty advanced category cruiser bike which is reportedly available in Bangladesh as well as some places in Dhaka. It has bit dashing looks just like the top cc bikes of Harley Davidson. It has fully classic designed headlamp which is round and body is so slim which can remind the top cc bikes all the time. There is a powerful engine attached with an engine guard. The fuel tank is uniquely designed and there is a single plate seating position. It has very wide tire attached in the rear with front long suspension added. There are alloy wheels which are also strong. Now, we can shift our attention to Bajaj Avenger Street. It has fully simple looking and comfortable cruiser bike just suitable for Bangladesh. There are we decorated handlebar which is user-friendly with comfortable seating position. It has a fully naked engine with a good exhaust. Overall, the bike looks also good but comparing with Regal Raptor Spyder, it can not match with the UK brand product which is far better than Avenger Street 150.

Besides, it’s maxed torque is 12.5 NM so far. IT has an air cooling engine just like most of the cruiser bikes. Both electric and kick starting system added into the bike. The bike Avenger Street is an Indian assembled bike and in Bangladesh, Bajaj is a very reliable brand so far. On the other side, UK brand bike Regal Raptor Spyder is also 150 cc bike with four strokes and inside balance shaft engine. It can generate 18 Bhp max power which is far more than Avenger Street. Besides, just like sports bikes, it has also water cooled engine so far. It seems that Bajaj Avenger Street has a reliable engine but considering the power, Regal Raptor Spyder is one step ahead.
# Suspension & Brake: English brand Regal Raptor does not use any cheap parts into their bike Spyder. They have used very high-quality double disc brake into the front tire and rear tire, there is single disc brake installed. Besides, the front suspension is so long which is telescopic and rear suspension is twin shock. Both are ensuring best comfort even for the long ride also. On the other hand, for great comfort Bajaj has used telescopic with anti-friction bush suspension in front and rear suspension is as usual twin shock. There are one disc brake in front and the rear brake is a drum. So, it seems that the braking system of Regal Raptor Spyder is far better than Avenger Street.
# Comfort & Control: Regal Raptor Spyder and Bajaj Avenger Street 150 both have single plate seat where the seat is very thick and comfortable, it seems at first sight. But the seating position of Avenger Street is long enough than Spyder. If we consider comfort, both bikes are very comfortable but due to very advanced rear suspensions, it seems that Regal Raptor Spyder would be a more comfortable ride. Besides, it has double hydraulic disc brakes in front and disc brake is used in the rear. So, due to both front and rear disc brake, it’s controlling will be definitely better than most available cruiser bikes in Bangladesh. On the other hand, Bajaj used disc and drum braking combination which is used for most of the bikes in Bangladesh. So, it’s controlling would be as usual.
# Fuel Consumption: If we consider the mileage or fuel-efficient technology, it seems that Bajaj Avenger Street 150 is far better than Regal Raptor Spyder.
