Nice. 400? So these people have a riding season of 12 months?

Not sure if it's a 400 or not, I think they may be limited to 250 or smaller by law.

Pretty much. The country has about a 6 - 10 degree swing from winters low 80's F to summer highs in the upper 80's. But humidity does get high. I was in Saigon for a couple weeks in Dec 1974 and it was very very warm coming from snow near Seattle.

Looks a bit more like a Chinascoot of some flavor or other that has Suzuki badges stuck on it.

It's not a 400 for sure. The seat doesn't even fit the body opening.

But, the full front fender, the body-mounted mirrors, and dual rear shocks tell us that it's really a modified 650 in disguise to get around the 250 limit !!

I note that there is also a key hole where the gas tank should be - so the key hole is for opening the trunk. Gas tank inside like a kymco?
