The model - this is one of two models that carry route P960 and route P968 route branding. Both were announced on 8th November 2021 and they were released in a KMB 'pop-up' store on 12th November. The second features V6P5 on route P968 (KMB2021099). Both went on general release on 27th November.
 

The busKowloon Motor Bus launched these two 'long-haul first class services' on 18th July 2021. Route P960 operates between Siu Hong Station and Wan Chai and route P968 between Yuen Long West and Tin Hau.

The company registered ten Wrights Gemini 3 bodied Volvo B8Ls in early July 2021 to operate these services and these have been allocated fleet numbers V6P1-V6P10.  This batch of ten buses were originally intended for Long Win Bus and had been stored for some considerable time before being repainted and upgraded. The orange hand rails are a clue to their former identity!

Further details of this launch can be found on the following page of the XTRA section of the site.
