Let's just wait until the 2004 orion vii 1-gens finish retiring before the 2-gens start to kick the bucket okay?

It's not that big a deal. They retired some 02-03 D60s before the last of the 1999-2000 buses fully retired.

They also retired the 98 RTS batch before the 96 RTS batch. 99 Orion V's retired before the 96 & 98 RTS batch, etc.

all I heard is that it died and it won’t be fixed. Farebox and radio were taken out of it.

Apparently the engine blew up.

So if it's true about 6681 and 6685 being scrapped that means the start of the end of 6490-6689 units am I right?

Not necessarily. They are just getting rid off the worst of the bunch. In 2020 when the new buses arrive, then it's a wrap for the Gen 1 Hybrids. It makes no sense to fix a bus with a major problem that's 15 years old. Those 2004s have another good year of service left in them. But if there's a major problem with one of them, its serves the MTA no good to fix a bus that won't make it pass the next year.

Bus doesn’t have extensive damage. Pictures via Staten Island Advance. Only bumper damage. Definitely OOS for a bit.
