Satisfied with the performance of the production Citaro (Mk II or facelift version), SMRT Buses placed a further order of 40 more units, known as Batch Two. They were registered SMB149R to SMB188C. These buses were fitted with Lawo BENEFIT EDS (notably with route details on the side EDS), seat covers in its corporate livery and swing-out doors.

SMRT Buses retained its option of the OM906hLA engine (6,374cc) along, and matched up with SBS Transit's choice of Voith D854.5 (4-speed automatic) transmission for Batch Two buses. The interior is fully low-floor and its air-conditioning was supplied by Konvekta.
