The Savage Cruiser was manufactured with particular care to details and attention to absolute comfort and elegance. This modern aircraft has the same structure of the Savage Classic but different and more gentle shape. You will be able to do the same special “jobs” typical of the Classic version, but with something unique in your hands, expecially if painted with our special paint schemes.
