But all of them are United by a high level of efficiency: the manufacturer has improved the fuel system, created an electronic unit that with amazing accuracy determines the portion of fuel at one time or another of the engine. The exhaust gas neutralization system has significantly reduced the content of harmful impurities in them, and the reliability and increased engine life bring this brand to a leading position among the manufacturers of power units. But the smooth and long-term operation of even the most advanced machines is impossible without maintenance and regular repairs.
