If you can remember the Satria Neo R3 Racing Edition (LRE). have gotten the idea of how raunchy and delectable it was out on tight with its 1.6L 4-cylinder CPS given a little extra to keep you wanting more.

the Satria Neo R3 has lost of its aesthetic aggressiveness compared to the likes of the in fact, it has also lost its weight carbon fibre AP Racing brakes, Öhlins suspension and those lightweight BBS rims. But, thankfully it lost its potency in terms of
