More economical and rigid
For machinery, the increase in capacity of 2,000 cc, logically, ought to 2,400 cc would be more wasteful. When Kompas.com do a test drive with a route of Yogyakarta, Semarang, Salatiga-national tour through the region of Mount Merapi, Central Java, which is full rise and turn, consumption of 11.8 km / liter.
