and when you look at the -Lias 360- modern, low body (36 cm from ground, hence the name, and that was 40 years ago) and electromechanical transmission, i am wondering why they had to get the smelly.stinky, smoking Ikarus busses?
( the site is in russian language but google chrome translates it into english)

It was the political decision. Or economical, according to formula.

Those Ikarus buses operated all over the world and were known for their reliability. They had them in Canada up until the early 00s.

BTW Ikarus, when the engine is regulated and tuned well, is neither smoky nor smelly. The question is quality of service and maintenance, as with any other machine.
