Mumabi, May 2 Bajaj Auto’s two-wheeler sales slipped 26 per cent to 1.5 lakh units in April against 2.03 lakh units it sold in April 2008.

The decline in sales is mainly due to the fall in export. The company’s total exports, including two-wheelers and three-wheelers, for April slipped 30 per cent to 51,887. The company hopes that exports may recover in May.

However, domestic sales improved in the last four months. “From a low of 61,546 units in December 2008, Bajaj’s domestic motorcycle sales have moved steadily to 1,06,516 units in April 2009, a growth of 73 per cent,” said Mr Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director, Bajaj Auto, in a statement here.

The 125-cc Bajaj XCD clocked 22,072 units in April.
