The scooters sold in Japan look like this.
Southeast Asian scooters are air-cooled, so it’s going to be a problem. Quote from SUZUKI.
The new SWISH-based scooter, Saluto 125, was announced in Taiwan. Maybe this will be sold as a global model, so we think it will fit EURO5.
We also think that the address V125 system, GSR125 system, the SWISH engine will survive.
You’re talking about completely reviewing your scooter’s strategy, so Saluto 125 is at the forefront of that.
So that’s it. It is a story to reconsider, but there is a demand for a motorcycle that looks like SWISH in local Taiwan, so we think SWISH will not disappear. It’s quite new.
