Other than the USA, who requires MPH (rather than KPH) on scooter/motorcycle gauges? Occasionally, I will see concept or pre-production scoots/MCs and the gauges will have secondary MPH markings (my S-500IE has primary KPH and secondary MPH markings) leading me to suspect they are models that will be imported to the USA.

Other than a few island dependancies and protectorates does any major market other than the USA require MPH on gauges?

Honeymooning in Ireland 10 years ago, I was quite surprised to see they were using MPH on the signs and the cars.

Ah, we don't get mph only clock, but have both, with mph and kph.

Ireland converted to kph a few years ago, which is confusing if you are driving across from the North!

Canada requires MPH in small print underneath the Km/hr.
