The model - this model was issued in late March 2007, however, news of its release did not come to light until June. It is understood that problems in production resulted in only about 100 models being issued. 

The bus - The Dennis Jubilant (launched in 1977, Jubilee year) was designed specifically for Kowloon Motor Bus. They purchased the first four chassis, on which they built their own bodies, each of which differed from each other slightly. N1 entered service  in November 1977.

The above information has been extracted from Mike Davis's excellent book 'Hong Kong Buses - Volume 2 - Kowloon Motor Bus' and published by DTS Publishing.
