I have to make correction to it. This is not on Scania chassis, is on in house BCI FBC6125 chassis, designed for NZ and Australia market (if GVW ever raised)

Is the MAN NL323F/Gemilang demonstrator still with Ritchies? Or has it moved on somewhere else?

SkyBus Auckland's Facebook show's they have two of them in their fleet and they are expecting delivery of more.

Thanks,

Looks quite nice in the Ritchies livery. Looks very Ventura Melbourne-esque.

Thanks,

It does look good, so does the double decker above. Just nice to see anything new that isn't Custom Coaches.

Does anyone know if this bus has been bought by Ritchies of GoBus.

It was intended as a Demonstrator in Sydney....but seems to have remained in NZ.

No, returned to Australia earlier this year and currently on trial with Latrobe Valley Bus Lines in Victoria. Most likely to be displayed in the Australian Bus & Coach Show in Sydney next month too.
