Engine. Starbus Ultra is designed using the proven and reliable Tata 497 engine / new 3L engine (BS III & BS IV), along with a viscous fan (used for the first time in this class of buses). The optimal power of the engine results in considerably higher fuel efficiency and the lowest NVH among buses in its class. Moreover, the better torque characteristics ensure better pulling on higher gears, resulting in best-in-class 28.6% gradeability and lower fuel consumption. Driveline. The gearbox in Starbus Ultra is G-550, a 6-speed gearbox with overdrive and cable shift mechanism. This ensures higher mileage, more speed selection options and higher maximum speed. And being made of steel double cone synchro gives it 30% more life. Above all, the gear lever which is mounted on the dashboard, offers car-like gear shifting that requires less driver effort and causes less fatigue.

The engine and driveline are not the only reasons why Starbus Ultra stands apart from others. Its other superior aggregates and features take it to new horizons of perfection, making it the ideal choice
