Then, how about the results of the acceleration test of the two 150 cc class scooters with different styles? Who is superior between the All New Honda Vario 160 and ADV 150?

On paper, the All New Honda Vario 160 is equipped with a 156.9 cc, 4-stroke, 4-valve, eSP +, PGM-FI engine, and liquid cooling. The power generated from this 60 x 55.5 mm bore x stroke engine is 15.4 PS at 8,500 rpm and 13.8 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. This scooter itself weighs 115 kg for the CBS variant and 117 kg for the ABS variant and has a 5.5 liter gas tank capacity.

Meanwhile, the Honda ADV 150 ABS relies on a 150 cc, 4-stroke, SOHC, eSP, and PGM-FI engine. This engine with a diameter x stroke of 57.3 x 57.9 mm produces power of 14.5 PS at 8,500 rpm and torque of 13.8 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The weight of this scooter weighs 133 kg and a fuel tank capacity of 8 liters.

we directly proved the acceleration ability of the All New Honda Vario 160 and ADV 150 ABS using the Race Logic Performance Box device. In this test, the fuel used is 92 octane and the tire pressure is according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Meanwhile, the track conditions are dry. How is the result?

The All New Honda Vario 160 ABS is capable of running from 0-60 km/h in 5.1 seconds and 0-100 km/h in 19.2 seconds. Meanwhile, the Honda ADV 150 ABS accelerates from 0-60 km/h in 6.5 seconds. Furthermore, acceleration from 0-100 km / h can be bulldozed in just 25.4 seconds.

Is it true that the Honda ADV 160 will follow the Vario 160?

 The news that PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM) will launch the Vario 160 on Wednesday (2/2/2022) tomorrow makes a scene in the automotive world in the country. Because the presence of this one scooter has been long awaited.

Many predict that AHM will completely overhaul the appearance and innards of the Honda Vario 160. Some say that the Vario 160 will be the toughest rival of the Yamaha Aerox 155 and therefore the design is made as sturdy as possible.

However, until the Vario 160 was officially launched, all were still in the status of predictions, aka uncertain, as uncertain as rumors that said the appearance of the Honda Vario 160 would be followed by the ADV 160.

1. Honda ADV 160 following Vario 160?


It is quite reasonable if someone says that the presence of the Honda Vario 160 will be followed by the Honda ADV 160. Because these two motorbikes use the same engine base, namely the PCX 160 engine.

Honda does have a tradition of using one engine for several of their products. And usually the highest variant will appear first. Like when they launched the PCX 150 which was then followed by the Honda Vario 150. Both of these motorbikes use the same engine. After that came the Honda ADV 150.

Currently, AHM has launched the PCX 160. So their next product is the Vario 160. After that, it's the turn of the Honda ADV 160. It's just that no one knows exactly when the ADV 160 will be launched.

2. Honda ADV 150 is still old


The Honda ADV 150 was officially launched in Indonesia in 2019. So he is still 3 years old, still corn. Because of that, don't expect this one motorbike to get the latest version with a 160 engine in the near future.

Because AHM will probably still focus on working on the Honda Vario 160 market, which will reportedly be launched on Wednesday (2/2/2022) tomorrow. So, Honda ADV lovers seem to still have to wait a little longer to get a 160 cc engine.

3. Another option for touring lovers


If you've been craving a touring motorbike but feel that the presence of the Honda ADV 160 is too long and the Honda ADV 150 is outdated (because it's still using an old engine), you can consider the Honda CB150X.

This bar motorbike was launched in November 2021 so it is still fresh. The design is very touring with tempting features, such as the upside down front suspension which will add to the comfort as well as the handsomeness of this bike.

Currently, the Honda CB150X is priced at Rp. 32.95 million on the road in Jakarta. So, while waiting for the ADV 160 to arrive, how about you try this one clutch motor first?

 

Leaked Honda ADV 160 Launches This Year

Honda is rumored to be launching an automatic scooter (scooter) Honda ADV 160. This follows Honda's other 150 cc scooters which have been changed to 160 cc such as the Honda PCX and Honda Vario.

According to the Thai automotive site, Greatbiker, the Honda ADV160 will be launched in 2022. The emergence of the Honda PCX 160 and Honda Vario 160 makes the possibility of the presence of the Honda ADV 160 even greater. Rumors circulated that the motorcycle manufacturer with the flapping wing logo was developing the Honda ADV 160 on the same basis as the PCX 160 and Vario 160

The prediction is that the appearance of the Honda ADV 160 will remain similar to the Honda ADV 150 which is currently still being sold. However, the engine was replaced with a new ESP+ engine which has four valves and increases the capacity from 149 cc to 157 cc.

Greatbiker said the 12:1 compression ratio allows this engine to produce 15.8 horsepower at 8,500 rpm with a maximum torque of 15 Nm at 6,500 rpm.

The Honda ADV 160 may also get the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) feature. This feature is useful for preventing the rear tire from slipping, of course it is very suitable for adventure-character motorbikes such as the Honda ADV 160. Moreover, this feature has also been embedded in the Honda PCX 160.

Meanwhile, Honda has also registered a design patent for a motorcycle that is suspected to be the Honda ADV 250. The new Honda motorcycle patent is registered in the Official Gazette of Industrial Design No. 8/DI/2022 released by the Directorate General of Intellectual Property of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. The motor scooter was registered by Honda Motor Co., LTD. with four Japanese designers.

From the looks of it, this motorbike is identical to the Honda ADV 350 which has been launched in Europe. The latest scooter labeled ADV350 which was released at the EICMA Milan 2021 event has an engine capacity of 330 cc.

However, if you enter Indonesia, it is likely that the Honda ADV will carry a 250 cc engine. You see, Honda Forza which is present in Indonesia also uses a 250 cc engine. Moreover, Government Regulation No. 73 of 2019 states that motorcycles with engines of more than 250 cc to 500 cc are subject to a sales tax on luxury goods (PPnBM) of 60%. If Honda brings ADV 350 with a 330 cc engine, it means that the price will be higher with the imposition of PPnBM.

 The Toyota BZ4X electric car will show off at the G20 Summit in Bali on October 30, 2022. The pollution-free car will be used as a vehicle for the delegation of important state guests on the Island of the Gods.

"That's right, (Toyota BZ4X) we will support the G20 Summit event," said Anton when confirmed about the presence of the Toyota BZ4X at the G20 Bali Summit.

Anton continued, until now it is planned that there will be around 143 Toyota BZ4X units that will be prepared by TAM as operational vehicles at the G20 Summit. "Toyota BZ4X there are 143 units," he added.

The presence of the Toyota BZ4X electric car in Indonesia at an important event like the G20 Summit is quite interesting. The reason is, until now TAM has not officially sold the zero pollution SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle), it could be that the momentum in the G20 is a start before it is actually released with an official tag to the public.

When asked about when this car will be officially sold for the Indonesian market, Anton did not want to talk much. But if you remember, on March 12, precisely at the JAW 2022 exhibition, Anton had already talked about his opportunity to enter and be sold in the country.

Yes, of course Indonesia is also studying (Toyota BZ4X), we will inform you later when it is clearer," he concluded at the time.

For information, the Toyota BZ4X is projected to launch first in the Land of the White Elephant, Thailand in the second half of 2022. This car without exhaust emissions has a 5-passenger seating configuration with a futuristic visual design.

Furthermore, this car is also said to use a special platform for Toyota's first electric car with e-TNGA. This construction is claimed to be able to achieve a capable driving performance with a low center of gravity and good strength.

Citing Toyota Global, the BZ4X electric car is presented in 2 wheel drive options, namely Front Wheel Drive (FWD) and All Wheel Drive (AWD). For wheel drive FWD combined with a single electric motor capable of spewing power of 201 horsepower and peak torque of 265 Nm.

As for the AWD, two electric motors are injected at once which can shoot up to a maximum power of 215 horsepower and a peak torque of 336 Nm. Both variants are equipped with a battery with a specification of 71.4 kWh.

A little about the performance, Toyota claims from a standstill to 100 kph specifically for the FWD variant can be completed in 8.4 seconds. While the Toyota BZ4X AWD is faster, the record can be completed in just 7.7 seconds.

Turbo Engine Cortez is considered to be a waste of gasoline, this is what Wuling says!

 Wuling Motors has just released the Cortez update. Glides with changes or enhancements to features that support comfort and practicality. There is no change in the mechanical sector, including the engine. While some consumers have complained about the fuel consumption of Cortez which tends to be extravagant.

Turbo Engine Cortez is considered to be a waste of gasoline, this is what Wuling says!

When explaining about the new Cortez update, Danang Wiratmoko as Product Planning Wuling Motors spoke about the extravagance of Cortez. According to him, there are many factors that make driving extravagant and not many consumers have complaints there. The results were obtained from an internal survey of a number of Wuling car consumers, including Cortez.

"Some time ago we did market research on users of Cortez and other Wuling products. From their daily car usage, how much is spent on fuel. The interesting thing is, the survey results have a wide range. There are groups of users who say they are economical. Meanwhile some other groups, they feel that fuel consumption is less efficient. We can conclude that driving habits greatly affect fuel efficiency. On the other hand, road conditions and surrounding traffic also play a role," said Danang in an online presentation of new Cortez to the media.

Looking at the mechanical heart of the new Cortez, it still uses the same package that was first installed on the Cortez CT. Compared to the initial generation with naturally aspirated engines, this Cortez CT carries the most powerful engine. Its contribution comes from turbocharger support. Naturally, it can also contribute to efficiency.

Look at the early generation Cortez with a 1.8 liter engine that has 129 hp and 174 Nm of torque. Compare this with a 1.5 liter turbo 4-cylinder engine with 140 hp and a maximum torque of 250 Nm. Not to mention about the power supply. The old Cortez used iAMT against CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) on a turbo engined Cortez.

Indeed, the issue of fuel efficiency is very much a factor, not only from the engine used. There are various factors such as the type of fuel, how to drive, road contours, traffic conditions to the use of tires, including pressure, which will give different consumption results. While the use of a 1.5-liter turbo engine on the Cortez is considered sufficient by the manufacturer, both in terms of power and efficiency.

Updates on New Cortez

The refresher focus on the latest Cortez, according to Wuling, provides more comfort. With the jargon of Innovating Comfort Zone, Wuling wants to increase the value of Cortez's MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) for the better. Referred to as "smart MPV" thanks to the support of modern features of Indonesian voice commands and internet network support. The two features that are in the spotlight, first come through Wuling Almaz.

Wuling Indonesian Command (WIND) is an Indonesian voice command feature. Can be done to access many commands and functions. Starting from making phone calls, accessing music, navigation, knowing the date, opening and closing windows and sunroofs to adjusting the air conditioner. The user experience is constantly being improved, so that with simple communication functions can be executed.

"Some commands use simple everyday sentences. For example, 'Turn on the radio' and also 'I'm too hot' to automatically lower the temperature of the AC," said Handi Ahmad, Product Planning Wuling Motors.

Difference between Wuling Cortez CE and EX

 Wuling released New Cortez virtually on Thursday (24/3/2022). Visuals do not accept much change. Wuling's flagship MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) comes with more sophisticated feature updates. All are aimed at attracting market attention, especially in its segment. Currently, it has two variants, namely CE and EX. Then what are the details and differences of each model.

Difference between Wuling Cortez CE and EX

New Cortez CE and EX basically have the same body shape. They are 4,780 mm long, 1,816 mm wide and 1,755 mm high. The wheelbase is 2750mm, the front wheelbase is 1,546mm and the rear wheelbase is 1,541mm. The difference appears in the rear suspension sector, for CE to use semi-independent suspension. As for the Cortez EX, it has independent suspension.

While for safety features, both the CE and EX variants are not too much of a difference. Features such as ABS, EBD, BA, ESC, TCS, TPMS, Hill Hold Control, Electronic Parking Brake are available in both variants. The difference is that the seatbelt reminder for CE is only available in the first row. For type EX already available in all lines. Then the airbags, there are only two CE, while the EX has an additional four.

Likewise for parking sensors, the CE type is only on the back, while the EX is in the front as well. Next up is Fatigue Driving Warning, which is only available in the EX variant.

The taillights are also still bulbs. For the EX type, the wiper has been paired with a rain sensor, while the CE is not. Type CE is not equipped with chrome elements in the window line and there is no sunroof.

Interior, there is a difference in the AC control system which is not automatic for the CE type. In addition, the adjustment of the bench is still not electric and there is no place to store sunglasses in the CE type. The MID (Multi Information Display) screen in the EX type measures 7 inches, in the CE type it only measures 3.5 inches. In multimedia, both of them adopt a sophisticated display measuring 10.25 inches which makes it easy to access various features. However, the EX variant uses 6 speakers, while the CE only uses 4 speakers. In addition, the CE type is not equipped with lights in the cup holder (atmosphere lamp) and the steering wheel has not been covered with leather.

Old Fazzio Hybrid Indent, Yamaha Asks Consumers to Be Patient

 PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM) has received a positive response from consumers thanks to the launch of its newest scooter, Fazzio Connected Hybrid, last January. In fact, they claim that the first 1,000 units sold out nationwide in less than 5 hours of their debut in the country.

Old Fazzio Hybrid Indent, Yamaha Asks Consumers to Be Patient

Now if it is calculated per minute, there are at least 3 units of Yamaha Fazzio ordered in one minute. Orders at the time of its initial launch were made via an e-commerce platform.

However, recently on several Yamaha Fazzio forums, many have complained that the unit ordering process is a bit constrained. Consumers are asked by dealers to be patient because they have to wait for the unit to be sent, aka need to pivot.



The pivot deadline varies in various regions, some are 1 week or even translucent 1 month. Regarding this, the Public Relations, YRA & Community Manager of PT YIMM, Antonius Widiantoro did not dismiss the issue, he tried to explain if Fazzio's high demand was not matched by the supply process.

"We apologize if the availability of units at Yamaha dealers is not sufficient. Because once they are produced and shipped from the factory, they are sold out immediately, so consumers have to pivot," said Anton
Furthermore, explained Anton, at this time Yamaha will continue to try to meet consumer demand for Fazzio. He also asked consumers to be a little patient because of the high demand and unbalanced supply.

"We thank you profusely for the great interest of consumers in Yamaha Fazzio. We also ask for your patience to wait, because we will try to quickly send Fazzio units to consumers according to the queue at each dealer," he added.

For your information, Yamaha Fazzio is presented in 2 different variants. The first is the Fazzio Neo, which is sold for Rp. 21.7 million and has 4 color options, namely Cyan, Red, Black, and Beige.

"Some commands use simple everyday sentences. For example, 'Turn on the radio' and also 'I'm too hot' to automatically lower the temperature of the AC," said Handi Ahmad, Product Planning Wuling Motors. 

WIND is incomplete without the presence of Internet of Vehicle (IoV). Powered by a SIM card with its own internet network, IoV can connect the car with the user's smartphone. Through the MyWuling+ application, various commands and functions are possible. The simplest is like locking or unlocking, turning on the engine and air conditioning. Done remotely or remotely from the grip of a smartphone.

Another function thanks to IoV is tracking and geo-fencing security. If it is set, it can give a warning and the position of the car if it leaves the specified area. Very useful to reduce the risk of loss from theft.

In addition, there are several other functions of IoV on the new Cortez. And to support that, Wuling paired a bigger screen, which is 10.25 inches. As a result, the experience of using a variety of features and multimedia is more satisfying.

In addition to these two excellent features, the New Cortez also gets a little polish on the display. Both exterior and interior. Again, with a focus on adding to the convenience of MPV users. The New Cortez has been officially sold and Wuling gave a promo price with a PPnBM subsidy.

The top EX variant is offered at a price of IDR 310,650,000 and the CE below is priced at IDR 273.8 million. This price with a 50 percent PPnBM subsidy is borne by Wuling. The original price without subsidies is IDR 287.3 million for the CE variant and IDR 325.650 million for the EX. The promo price is valid until March 31, 2022.

"The PPnBM subsidy policy from Wuling will follow the timeline from the government. So we will follow what kind of policy from the government. For New Cortez there is also a subsidy, it's still valid, so consumers who want to have New Cortez with special prices can immediately visit dealers and make purchases," concluded Brian Gomgom, Media Relations of Wuling Motors

Desperate to use cheap diesel in Mitsubishi Fuso Euro 4 trucks, these are the consequences

 PT Mitsubishi Krama Yudha Tiga Berlian (KTB) has officially entered the era of Euro 4-engined commercial vehicles. They released 29 direct truck variants, the details of which are 15 variants for the Canter (Colt Diesel update) and 14 variants for the Fighter X.

The transition from the Euro 2 diesel engine to the Euro 4 cannot be separated from government policies that will take effect in April 2022. Now with the use of this engine and technology, it is claimed that it can reduce levels of NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) emissions so that vehicle exhaust emissions are more environmentally friendly.

Desperate to use cheap diesel in Mitsubishi Fuso Euro 4 trucks, these are the consequences

This change in emission standards certainly changes the habits of truck drivers who generally use diesel cetane number 42 with a maximum sulfur of 2,500 PPM (Bio Solar) to switch to diesel with better specifications. If forced, engine performance will be reduced to the possibility of damage to engine components in the long term.

As explained by the Vice President Sales & Marketing of PT KTB Aji Jaya, Mitsubishi Fuso Canter and Fighter X which pocket the Euro 4 standard must be filled with diesel fuel with a cetane number 51 specification with a maximum sulfur level of 50 PPM.

"With Euro 4 technology, the recommended fuel to maximize engine performance is fuel that has a maximum sulfur content of or less than 50 PPM and a minimum cetane number of 51," he said at the Mitsubishi Fuso test drive in the BSD area, South Tangerang, Friday. (25/3).

However, Aji revealed that the Fuso Euro 4 can drink diesel with specifications below that. However, with a note that it has a cetane number that is close to that, in the market the options are Shell V-Power Diesel (CN 51/10 PPM), Pertamina Dex (CN 53/300 PPM), or Pertamina Dexlite (CN 51/1,200 PPM).

"So it really fits or is close to the Euro 4 specifications, in terms of the cetane number the most suitable," said Aji.

Consequences of Not Using Solar According to Recommendations


On the same occasion, the Sales and Marketing Director of PT KTB Duljatmono also mentioned the warranty for vehicles that do not comply with using Euro 4 diesel.

"If you use Euro 4 fuel, the guarantee applies. But if you use non-Euro 4 (diesel) we will see case by case. The problem is what kind of situation we don't know they are forced to use Euro 2 (diesel) because there is no supply or on purpose, " said Duljatmono.

He continued, basically the fuel tank components have clearly written recommendations for the use of good diesel for the Euro 4 engine in the Mitsubishi Fuso. If you intentionally use Euro 2 diesel, it is implied by Duljatmono that the damage will be difficult for KTB to guarantee. 

"In the tank, we have written to use Euro 4 CN 51 fuel with 50 PPM sulfur. If we use the other one intentionally, then on the basis we will see what kind of case by case is in the field and we need to investigate," he concluded.

Goodyear Launches First Radial Tire For Light Truck Segment

 The government has begun to aggressively control commercial vehicles that are overloaded or ODOL (Over Load Over Dimension). In line with this policy, PT Goodyear Indonesia Tbk launched its newest product, the S501 LTR (light truck radial) type tire which targets the 3/4 truck segment today.

The launch of the LTR S501 tire was carried out virtually and was attended by Iman Santoso, Commercial Director of Goodyear Indonesia, Andry Wahyu, Central Area Manager of Goodyear Indonesia, Nova Siregar, Commercial Product Manager of Goodyear Indonesia and Wicaksono Soebroto, Head of Communications of Goodyear Indonesia.

Goodyear Launches First Radial Tire For Light Truck Segment

Furthermore, Iman said, “Goodyear Indonesia responded quickly to the challenges of radialization in the logistics and transportation industry, where we see at least in the next five years radial tires will shift the use of bias tires with a ratio of 60:40. The launch of the Goodyear S501 is our comprehensive step in applying new technology to radial truck tires.”

According to Goodyear, the S501 is designed with Goodyear's cutting-edge technology. The design of the 4-rib tread pattern and deep tread thickness play an important role in producing optimal mileage, making the Goodyear S501 very suitable for use with loads comparable to longer mileage in Indonesia.

In the question and answer session, although it is prepared for commercial vehicles that follow the load rules set by the government, Iman said that the Goodyear S501 tires have been tested under conditions of overloaded vehicles.

Each tire has a load index. Only many do not follow the recommended specifications. We still recommend that these tires be used for standard loads, but we are testing and preparing these tires to be able to be used for overloading," said Iman.

Given that truck operators in Indonesia are often naughty and carry vehicles with excess loads, how much extra weight can the S501 tires tolerate? "According to regulations, there should be no tolerance but we have tested this tire with a load greater than 50 percent. In fact, we have also tested it with an 80 percent overload load. The results are still holding up and producing a competitive performance,” said Iman.

Iman also reminded operators to follow the education they often convey. “There are many that we recommend. We even made a special training for tire maintenance. But briefly, some of them are, the load must be in accordance with the specifications, maintaining the wind pressure according to the recommendations. There are many others, such as having to rotate, and so on,” Iman gave tips on tire care to achieve optimal mileage and service life.

Through the presence of this new Goodyear product, sales are expected to increase compared to last year. "For our target, we can't say it yet. But this year we are quite aggressive and are expected to increase sales 3 times from last year's sales. Next year is expected to increase again 1.5 times to 2 times the sales this year, “he explained again.

So what is the price of Goodyear's newest product in Indonesia? Nova Siregar, Goodyear Indonesia's Commercial Product Manager answered. “The segment targeted by Light Truck Radial or 3/4 trucks usually uses tires measuring Ring 15 to Ring 16, which is the largest market segment in commercial vehicles. Its market share is 60 percent to 70 percent. We offer quite competitive prices. For the 7.50 R16 size, it is sold at a price of Rp. 2 million to Rp. 2.5 million per set," said Nova.

Goodyear S501 tires are available in two sizes, namely 7.50R16 14PR and 8.25R16 14PR. These tires are currently manufactured at the Goodyear factory in China. Even so, this tire was developed specifically for the Indonesian market. But Goodyear also does not deny that these tires will also be marketed in other countries such as Southeast Asian countries for example.

Daihatsu Recall Rocky Regarding Problem with Front Shock Absorber Seat

There were 9,378 Daihatsu Rocky units that had to be re-checked and additional welds were added for problem areas. The unit in question, release or production period 28 April - 7 October 2021.

Meanwhile, the cause, as mentioned, is the welding part which is considered inaccurate, so it has the potential to be weak against hard shocks and detached. As a result, starting from the sound, until the worst is difficult to control.

"There is a potential for detachment of the front shock absorber holder due to the inaccurate position of the welding point. The location of the shock absorber holder is at the rear of the engine room, on the left and right. There are two plates above and below, because the welding point is not correct, there is the potential for it to come off, "said Bambang Supriyadi, Executive Coordinator of the Technical Service Division of PT ADM in a virtual media meeting (11/3).

Bambang added that even though there was only one complaint report, ADM decided to do a recall. To then strengthen the weld by adding points. A total of 11 new welding points will be provided, so a total of 25 welding points in the area guarantees robustness.

According to PT ADM Marketing Director Amelia Tjandra, this is not a manufacturing defect or a design error. However, it is more about human error, because the apron part is manually welded by human labor. Not with robotic power like some other parts of the car.

"Welding of this part is done by humans. If other points are used by robots, this part cannot. So it must be done by humans. The design has given points for welding, there are 14 points. If it is correct, basically there will be no complaints. But because this is done by humans, there are some things that are not right. So there is the potential for sound when it hits a hole or the most dangerous thing is it comes off, "said Amelia.

"We have analyzed to ensure that the position of the apron is stronger, by adding 11 welding points, so 25 points. We have done simulations, with the addition of these points the problem will be solved and there is no potential danger. I emphasize again, this is not a product defect. , not at all," Amelia added.

Recall Other Daihatsu Products

Besides Rocky, Daihatsu also made calls for GranMax and Luxio products to official workshops. This recall is related to problems with the engine ECU, with unstable RPM phenomena, engine knocking and engine performance stuttering to death. A total of 11,734 GranMax and Luxio units were affected, namely the production period from September 9, 2021 to January 21, 2022.

Bambang said that the reason is related to the shortage of semiconductor chips. Forcing the ADM to do a multi source chip or IC in the engine computer. Then it has an impact on the program at ECU. 

For consumers who have a unit included in the recall list, it is recommended to bring their car to an official Daihatsu repair shop. As with most recalls, inspection and handling doesn't cost you a penny. Meanwhile, it is estimated that it takes 10 working hours to add welding points to the Daihatsu Rocky front shock absorber mount. While the GranMax and Luxio ECU reprogramming only takes 15 minutes.
