The vast majority of bike sold in those markets are small displacement bikes that would not sell in our market or even in most of Europe. Those countries are quite poor and motorcycles are the main mode of transportation. Haven't you seen those pics of an entire family of 5 all piled onto a 200cc bike? If my google skills were a bit better I would find one and post it.
