Metrol Link Kinglong Cerita bus caught speeding



I keep traveling on the Mumbai - Pune expressway and recently managed to take a video of Chinese Kinglong Cerita bus. The bus is owned by Metrolink, which also operators Volvo buses on the Pune - Mumbai - Pune route.
As seen in this video, the bus is doing around 105-110km/h on the expressway. I have myself seen the driver do around 120km/h while sitting in a Shivneri Kinglong bus last year.

I happened to travel twice by the KingLong and must say the experience was far from being pleasant. Not just for me(I'm extra-ordinarily heighted at 6ft. 4inches) but also for my wife who is 5ft.11 inches, the leg space was far from being enough. There was not even a gap of 1cm between our knees and the seat in front. The result- we had to keep requesting the guy on the front seat to not push back his seat.
This was the KingLong hired by MSRTC and run under the flagship brand of Shivneri.
I'd never again travel on the pune-mumbai sector by Shivneri (or even any other operator) just so as that I do not get cheated to travel in some cheap chinese buses by the operators in place of the royal swedish Volvo.
