In many scooter-oriented markets, or any country where motorcycles are seen as a regular all-year commuter, Honda outsells any European contender. Brazil is not as scooter-hungry as it used to be from the '50s to mid-'70s when Honda took over with the CG 125, but nowadays I spend months without seeing any Vespa from the '90s or newer, yet I see at least one modern Honda scooter a day.

And there is a MASSIVE aftermarket for it in Asia.
Southeast Asia in general tends to be much more favorable to scooters than anywhere else.
