The Bajaj Pulsar range continues to be a strong volumes spinner for the company

"Domestic two-wheelers registered a strong turnaround in the first half of the quarter driven by pent up demand. While the exact festive spike is awaited, early signs show (strong) indications of a recovery. Industry grew by 7 per cent in Q2 and our growth was in line with Industry and hence our market share was 18.2 per cent in H1/FY21 vs 18.1 per cent in H1/FY20," Bajaj said in a statement.
