2. Efforts to achieve goals

Restructuring the team, combining improving technology and strengthening training

To prepare for the new season with the expectation of entering the TOP 10 ARRC, HVN has restructured the organization chart to optimize the operation of the racing team, with clear division of responsibilities for each technician and chief technician. Additionally, by conducting research to improve the power of the AP250 engine and collaborating with the Yuzy team in Malaysia in developing race bikes in the UB150 category, HVN believes that new technology will provide invaluable support to the riders competing on the international stage.
