  • A seating capacity up to 61
  • Larger rear engine door with removable bumper
  • Large side doors for easy access
  • Removable front bumper
  • A large access hatch for front end sign
  • Hinged air conditioning ducting with access to wiring

The SB50 frame is built using stainless or galvanised steel , which is built using 3D technology, making it more accurate. Parts are no longer manually produced, instead they are computer designed and formed by a five-axis router.

It was built upon a Hino chassis and was unveiled in 2010.
