Optare
RE: Optare
The weight is little different to an M710SE either, going by HTL's, theirs are 5370kgs, while the M720SR on the Optare website is 5480kgs so not massively different.

Regarding build quality, I find Optare buses (from those I've driven, admittedly not a huge number) better than that of Alexander Dennis buses. I believe there are a few transmission issues on some Solos but this is, so I'm told, an issue with the Allison gearbox more so than an Optare issue.

It'll be interesting to see one of those new little ones for real, I wonder if a demo will do the rounds of the local operators!

Light up, light up as if you have a choice,
Even if you cannot hear my voice.
I'll be right beside you dear.
