The bus - The Dennis Condor is unique to China Motor Bus. In fact, the Condor is a rebadged Dragon, exclusive to China Motor Bus. The DA class entered service between 1990 and 1997. It consists of 92 vehicles, with DA1-DA56 featuring small top sliding windows, similar to UK vehicles, the windows being rubber mounted. DA57-82 have no opening windows, these still being rubber mounted, whilst the final batch, DA83-DA92, have bonded glazing. DA89 entered service on 5th September 1997.
