Domestic sales were down 23 per cent at 1.58 lakh units as against 2.05 lakh units in July 2019, Managing Director Rajiv Bajaj said in a statement.

Exports in July declined 45 per cent to 96,856 units as against 1,76 lakh units in the corresponding month last year.
The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic led to countrywide lockdown with containment and precautionary measures which resulted in disrupted supply lines and a sharp decline in overall demand.
