  • Improvement of flight characteristics at high altitude
  • Improvement of consumption and range thanks to a CX with greater performances
  • Keep the max. weight at take-off, increase the standard capacity of fuel
  • Removable tank to make easier the cross country refuelling with a total capacity of 64lt. for a range of 3h at 100 mph ISA
  • Reduction of vibration’s values and therefore the stress of components
  • Acquisition of a styling that is more winning
