VI.

CONCLUSION
In fact, Honda has consumed more than the number of cars in Vietnam compared to

Yamaha Motor Vietnam's consumer decisions by customers in Vietnam still depends


heavily on factors perceived constraints and habits change. However, Yamaha still have
their own strengths, but Honda is not comparable, it is powerful sports cars that represent
the Exciter. In this segment, even Honda has no representative in Vietnam.
In the trend of economic development, Yamaha needs more efforts in management,
strategic planning business matching solution to compete with rivals such as Honda,
SYM, Piaggio. This helps Yamaha hold his position or beyond it's main rivals Honda
Vietnam
Through the above analysis, because knowledge is limited, the report may make
mistakes, limited visibility, and there are many issues yet to be analyzed, evaluated deep.
I hope to get her contribution to draw lessons for the next report
