KB Coaches goes big with MAN Neoplan Tourliner

Operator full of praise for new 13.8 metre Select model

Leading manufacturer MAN Truck & Bus UK has delivered a Neoplan Select Tourliner to Gloucestershire based KB Coaches.

MAN sales executive Jeff Edwards said: “The 13.8 metre chassis is the longest we do and is certainly the longest in the KB Coaches fleet.

“For safety the customer opted for reversing and centre door cameras, and for passenger comfort there is a fresh water flushing toilet, air conditioning, drinks machine, fridge DVD and three-point seatbelts.

“From a performance perspective, the Euro 6 engine boasts a 12.4 litre MAN D26 engine, producing 440bhp, and AS Tronic 12-speed automated gearbox.”

KB Coaches owner Andy Francis added: “We are very happy with the performance of our new Tourliner Select.

“It is the largest vehicle in our fleet and initially we were a little apprehensive about its length, but the rear steer allows impressive manoeuvrability. We are also impressed by the fuel economy for such a large vehicle.”
