This bus was fitted with a Volvo THD102KF engine (9,600cc) with 4-speed ZF 4HP 500 automatic transmission. Air-conditioning was supplied by Sutrak. It measured at an impressive length of 14.5m and had three axles. Due to difficulties in maneuvering such a long vehicle on the roads, the routes it could ply was severely limited. The bus was last deployed on Route 87 and was withdrawn by October 2012.
In April 1996, SBS introduced a longer 19m articulated Volvo B10MA bus, registered SBS998Y which ultimately was unsuccessful. After the trial of another O405G articulated bus in the late 90s which was also unsuccessful, SBS Transit made no further purchases of any bus longer than the standard 12m length.
