In some other countries in Southeast Asia, the number of registered motorbikes is less. For example, in Brunei, very few people use motorbikes as a means of transportation. People in Brunei mainly use cars as their main means of transportation.

In Vietnam, the number of registered motorbikes is more than 72 million units, equivalent to about 72% of the population having motorbikes. This figure shows that Vietnam is the number 2 powerhouse in motorcycles in Southeast Asia.

With the number of registered and used motorbikes up to hundreds of millions as above, Southeast Asia is considered a fertile motorcycle market. According to, the motorcycle industry in ASEAN accounts for about 25% of the worldwide market share.
