Where Are All the Avantimes & Vel Satises in France?

My dad recently spent 2 weeks in France and because we both have Vel Satises, we always keep our eyes peeled for those and Avantimes. I know VS are rare in the UK but I thought there would be many more in France. But no. After covering many, many miles on both toll roads and in towns and villages, north to south, then from east to west and back up to the UK again, do you know how many Vel Satises he saw in 2 weeks of motoring in France? Eight... in 2 weeks! Avantimes spotted? One... one!

Are these cars rare even in their native France now, let alone any other country? I know they stopped making the VS in 2009, but surely you'd expect to see more than 8 in 2 weeks of extensive driving. Hmmm.
