Yes, I think it’s been there for some time now. Surprisingly it came kinda long before 7848. It confuses me why they skip around numbers for some reason....? XD

Sometimes a newly manufactured bus has "issues" that has to be repaired at the vendor/manufacturer.

7848 was used as a demo. It was up in Rockland County for Transport of Rockland for a while.

Apparently, from others I’m also hearing that FB has a shortage of artics. I could be wrong. However, so far 5 from MQ are here and they all have FB decals.

No one knows if its short term or long term, stop making those type of statements.

5483 also showed up at Flatbush.

From what I've been told(not sure if its true or not, taking this with a grain of salt), the XD60s are not very well liked down at Flatbush. If this is true, it would share similar sentiments with Quill operators who prefer the 2016-2017 XD60s over the 2019s, since the 2019s have been slowed down.

But as always, we gotta wait and see, nothing is certain until it's certain.

Loud and clear sir. Pardon with the loose statements. However, just only speaking through observation only. 

PS: To your knowledge have the MCH ops been complaining about the newer XD60’s?

Would this have to do with the rumor I've been hearing that the Thermo King HVAC's on those buses being too overpowered?

That's part of it. The HVAC is both heavy and overpowered.

Boy howdy. I've been on several of the new ones on B44+ & M15+, and those buses have been seriously hobbled.

I also find this hilarious as you-know-who was adamant that BK division supposedly didn't want (or like) Novas, & his plan to go one type was the best way....  I'm not picking on he-who-shall-not-be-named, but I just find this a bit funny.

DOT wanted divisions to maintain one type of bus model.
