Also, Bajaj's 2W sales include more of high capacity bikes as compared to competition. Even this helps in achieving a higher margin.
All products are equally liable to contribute to the profitability is the way Bajaj looks at it. That's their philosophy. Hence their three wheeler business even though adds to the top line, not necessarily is the reason behind high margins.

Also, my point was more towards comparing Bajaj auto and Eicher motor's profitability. The former has generic products which face fierce competition while the latter enjoy's market monopoly and has limited products (thus saving on huge investment costs).
