What do you guys think of this bus?

"KMB's new Enviro500, which has new "2006" livery, is one of the first Euro 4 standard double decker in Hong Kong."

Looks like it hit a brick wall :lol:

When I was in Hong Kong a few weeks ago, I saw some of the 10 Wright B9TLs which have the 2006 decals. I also got a ride on the Volgren bodied B9TL which is also equipped with a Euro 4 motor.

When in HK I heard that some drivers called these "Robo Cops" becouse the front has a bit of a robotic look to it.

At first I didnt like it but its not the worst modern bus design out there.

I like that front, much better than the Wright offering and the ComfortDelegro front looks like a knock off of this one (to me anyhow)

Love the Enviro 500 body ... it's been out for what? 3-4 years now? Have only ridden the complete Tranbus Enviro 500 and not the Volvo chassis with the Enviro body ... I still like the Wright Eclipse/Explorer better for interior layout.

It is basically a Plaxton President body which has been stretched longer, and given different front and rear end mouldings.
