At the heart of the SRA Hanuman 3 lies a meticulously crafted 430 kW electric motor, a product of collaboration with industry-leading entities such as Acme Inter, Hoganas, and Chiang Mai University. Additionally, SRA's unwavering commitment to excellence is evidenced by its focus on producing top-tier batteries through Oska Holding, ensuring unparalleled efficiency and reliability. Precision control systems are paramount, with collaborations with Nexzter for braking systems and Lenso for alloy wheels, culminating in a driving experience that is both powerful and precise.

In commemoration of Prince Bira's 110th anniversary, SRA is set to release a highly exclusive edition of the SRA Hanuman 3, limited to just 110 units.
