When Vietnamese users are familiar with names like Honda 67, Super Cub, Simson SS50, Dream imported from Thailand, bringing a new breeze. The car had many modern lines at the time. The body of the car is shaped by square blocks, the sound of the engine is smooth and the price is equivalent to a dozen gold trees. Dream as a property represents the wealth of the owner.
The seamless design, ripe plum paint color has become Dream’s recognizable point for many years in the market. Speaking of Dream at that time, car owners could not hide their pride, while those who did not look at the car with lustful eyes. Vehicle is really a phenomenon in the process of forming the Vietnamese motorcycle market.
In 1996, Honda invested in Vietnam and launched the Super Dream model about a year later. At this time, the car price becomes softer than importing CBU from Thailand. However, Super Dream has edited and softer features than the original, so it makes users somewhat confused.
The difficulty for this number of cars increased when the wave of Chinese cars flooded Vietnam in the 2000s. These brands did not hesitate to imitate the design of Honda products, and Dream is no exception.
The same main plum color, the same design with many square details, but users only have to pay half the money to buy a Dream with the “Hongda” logo produced by Lifan.
The wave of fake cars was then extinguished by Honda itself with quality products, competitive prices, typically Wave Alpha. However, the accessibility of the selling price and the market with more suitable products have partly pushed Dream into a difficult position.
Still a dream product for those who need it, but losing the original “quality” and not suitable for the majority, Dream stopped selling in Vietnam in 2017 after many improvements. However, more than 20 years of presence in Vietnam, Dream has contributed significantly to the overall development of the motorcycle market.
