Bajaj is a very renowned two wheeler manufacturing brand which is the origin of India. They are the largest bike manufacturer in India and since long time, they are doing business in India and Bangladesh with much reliability. After Japanese brands, we can regard them as the most reliable brand but sometimes we give them priority than Japanese brands as well. They have recently launched a cruiser bike in Bangladesh which is Bajaj Avenger Street 150. It is the younger version of Avenger Street 220 which is available in India. The bike has dominated the market considering the segment in Bangladesh because there are not much reliable companies yet to launch cruiser bikes. But an American brand named UM has launched a cruiser bike few years ago. The bike is Renegade Commando and in the middle of the time, it was not available but now, the bike is once again available in the market. The bike failed to dominate the market and considering the Indian brands, US brand is not reliable like them. Through the local importer the bike is launched here and so, the users of the bike generally do not get proper customer service. So, they have faith on Indian brands more than some other foreign brands so far. But recently our domestic brand runner started to launch UM motorcycles in Bangladesh. Today we will make a comparison review between Bajaj Avenger Street 150 and UM Runner Renegade Commando. Through that you can see the better choice between them. Let’s see the details below.
