Our Engineering Solution

BRIST managed the challenge of KARSAN by fitting the systems in the tight volume allocated and conceptualizing an ultra-light suspension without compromising on the vehicle’s turning diameter.

Long wheel articulation r at maximum possible steering angle that gives the bus best performance in turning radius, better ride and handling and excellent suspension comfort at drive were amongst the other challenges met.

The program was performed in corporation with their engineering subsidiary- Hexagon Studio who were leading the 8m-bus development programme on behalf of KARSAN.
