Hey all,

After looking for a few photos of the O500UA (O500 Low floor bendy bus) I hit you tube because I noticed photos had become more widespread now and found quite a number of videos, some with voith some with ZF, some high floor (MA) some low floor(UA).

Found this one which shows some good photos of them and due to the O500 bendies still having hub reduction the sound of it was alike a quiet o405, only it has the scream of the downchange from 6th - 5th lol. Very nicce, it has the high output, verticle mounted version of the OM457hlA found in the O500LE's over here. This bus performs extremely well for a bendy, I hope with the new merc range becoming available as of next year with a standard width of 2.5m wide that we can see some of these over here.

Thanks for watching,

Thanks for the link. And for the Voith lovers:


Also features feature lovely hubs and a nice chunky diesel engine.
Please, sir, can we have a fleet of these in Perth? :P
