I think that both these buses are Goa registered, non a/c but well comfortable. Body building work is done by Sutlej.
Both the buses used to have Jesus Cross at the back & big OM on the front grill.
Mixing the traditions of Hindus & Christians !!!

Bluelines had introduced dual axle double decker buses between Udupi and Bangalore few years back. It had a rear engine supplied by Mercedes Benz. they had charged a huge premium on these buses and i had seen these buses two or three times. Most of the time,that bus was seen parked in a petrol bunk next to the Udupi dhwara. I guess this was the first bus dual axled bus launched in India.

The cowl is indeed present, what you dont see is the skin panel covering the cowl as on a Tata. Infact I have seen a few Tata's without the skin panel. I have seen quite a few AL's with a built up front panel.

Spotted multiple times this week : Rigid truck in the 25-tonne category sporting Tata's new world truck cab. Though it seemed to struggle just as much as its current brethren from Tata while going up even very slight inclines.

The Mahindra Navistars , on the other hand, seem to have more of a gutsy heart from the way they attain highway speeds or move up inclines.

On another note, read somewhere that MAN-Force has launched their 25 tonne truck with a 220 bhp engine, which I believe is the most powerful one in its category in India. Correct me if I am wrong.

You must have seen one of the 'poorer cousins' of the World truck with smaller engines specially developed for India so as to cater to those people who still rates fuel efficiency.

Tata has launched the LPK 2523 making it more powerful than the MAN.

do you have any snaps of the same so that we will be able to tell which truck that was exactly. i mean the engine specs. if you say it was 25 tonne and yet struggling, that too on a very light incline, i really doubt. even the lpt2515 glides smoothly on the inclines. without knowing how much loaded the truck was its hard to comment. even you might not be knowing which gear the driver was pulling it in.

the current offerings from TATAs range from 150 to 560 bhp, which are not only faster but also fuel efficient.

example :LPK 2530 TC 6x4 , 300 bhp

Default Your Jaws will drop

I travelled in a local intercity buy , a couple of weeks before

The bus starts at 4.55 am from the front of kodungaloor temple to sulthan battery via calicut

The body is built by shillibear(thrissur) and its a leyland (ordinary limited stop fast passenger)

the features are

2 ac vents for a 3 seat row (ac will be on full time)

2 Big LCD sreens

semisleeper seats

It has rear air suspension

blue led illumination , with ultra viloet lights


front and back automatic doors (in kerala automatic door for a local bus is a big thing)

the travel comfort is more than in a volvo

pin drop silence inside the bus , well insulated body

Here comes the most attractive thing , the charge is the same as in an ordinary limited stop bus , 3 rupee 50 paise (minimum)

will get the snaps next time

I dont see the LPK 2523 listed on Tata Motors web site, neither under "India Products" nor under "Worldwide Products". Any links for it?

For that matter, Tata Motors product web site never seems to be updated. Many products are missing, such as the Tata Marcopolo Starbus bus, the Tata Hispano Globus bus, etc. I have written to Debasis Ray (TM spokesman).

This is probably a new facelifted ACE or maybe since it has a MH15 reg, it might be the ACE Competitor from Mahindra..

Nice catch there.

Is that Hindustan Motor's truck? The Chinese brand, IIRC.

It could be the upcoming Mahindra too, as somebody mentioned earlier,

I am pretty sure it is a Tata. Look at the tail gate fasteners and the tail lamps. They look like straight out of the ACE parts bin.

Could it be the Tata Penguin?
