The automaker said that it recorded a 26 per cent jump in two-wheeler (2Ws) domestic sales (Y-o-Y) in December at 158,370 units from 125,553 in December 2022. It also lodged a slight increase of 3 per cent in its two-wheeler exports at 124,631 units, up from 121,499 units in December 2022.

The Pune-based firm sold a total of 337,962 units in November in the domestic and exports market against the 329,185 units sold by Hero MotoCorp, shows the monthly sales data released by the companies on 1 December.
