MAN brings open-top sightseeing to Seoul
Heading to Korea for the holidays? Then you’d be well advised to take a panorama sightseeing tour of Seoul with Honeymoon Tour and its first (and only) cabriolet bus for sightseeing tours in Korea.
The MAN Lion’s Touring is also the first bus that MAN has launched in the Korean market. (MAN has already been active in this market for 15 years as a provider of premium trucks.)
With its sunroof and removable side windows, the MAN Lion’s Touring offers up to 45 tourists a significantly better view of the sights and cities.
At 11,3-m long and 2,5-m wide, its manoeuvrability is a match even for narrow streets. Power is provided by a 216 kW (290 hp) engine teamed with a six-speed automatic gearbox.
Mr Jung from Honeymoon Tour says: “In the 20 years that we have been offering sightseeing tours, I have been looking for a bus that can be easily adapted to the weather and surroundings. I am, therefore, extremely pleased to be the first customer to secure a MAN Lion’s Touring and to be able to use it on my tours.”
Max Burger, MD at MAN Truck & Bus Korea, sees great potential in the Korean bus market: “Our aim is to bring high-quality European buses to Korea. The launch of MAN Lion’s Touring marks the start of this.”
The company’s plans include unveiling a low-floor bus powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) at the Seoul Motor Show next year. A double-deck bus will also follow soon.
