Bajaj Auto on Monday reported a 26% decline in sales of its two-wheelers in the domestic market in October vis-a-vis the same month in 2020. Despite festive period of Navratri, the fall in year-on-year numbers may be a source of concern although Bajaj did launch the much-awaited 2021 Pulsar bike late last month and would now be looking at it to provide a bolster shot.
