The latest announcement by the company comes just ahead of the festive season during which the sale of vehicles are on an all-time high in comparison to the rest of the year.
In an interview, Mr Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director, Bajaj Auto revealed the performance of the brand for current fiscal. Regarding this, the top honcho stated that the market share of the company has dipped from 20 percent to 16 percent. But the good news is that the numbers have improved in the recent months.
To be precise, Mr Bajaj said that the sales numbers for the brand have started improving starting August and September is expected to be better if everything remains fine. Moreover, the new upcoming products will have a major role to play. He concluded by saying that this month, the brand will be launching fresh versions of the Platina and V.

While the Bajaj Platina is present in the company’s portfolio for India for quite sometime now, the V is comparatively a newcomer that registered its entry back in February 2016. The motorcycle contains the metal of India’s first aircraft carrier INS Vikrant that played a vital role during the 1971 war.
