The unit was powered by the Scania DC9 18 310 Euro IV engine (8,867cc), and fitted with 6-speed ZF Ecomat 6HP604CN automatic transmission. Its Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) technology does away the need for additives in exhaust treatment. The EDS unit was from Hanover Displays, air-conditioning from Eberspächer Sütrak of the R488 type and its interior design similar to its single deck counterparts.
In 2011, SBS7888K was briefly showcased with a special livery at Bangkok to celebrate Scania's 100th anniversary. It returned to Singapore for continued service after the event.
