Powerful, EBS-controlled disc brakes are well-known Volvo safety components. For top-of-the-line safety you can opt for a retarder and our Electronic Stability Program (ESP). The stepless hydraulic retarder provides gentle stopping and reduction of wear on the service brakes.
In a perspective of lifecycle productivity, maintenance and reliability are crucial matters. The B11R is designed for long service intervals and swift and simple maintenance. Oil change intervals are extended and many critical components are maintenance-free, such as prop-shafts, half-shafts and rear wheel bearings. In addition, Volvo’s multiplexed electronics system functions as a preventive maintenance and diagnostics tool.
With Volvo, service and maintenance are simple matters. All service points are easily reached and, due to component commonality within the Volvo family, your spare parts logistics are simplified. You also benefit from our extensive service network, which we partly share with Volvo Trucks. There are also specialised Bus Service Centres, providing competence, tools and parts for virtually all your needs.
