The Dennis Javelin (later known as the Alexander Dennis Javelin) was an underfloor-engined bus and coach chassis manufactured by Dennis and later Alexander Dennis. It was unveiled in 1986 and acted more or less as a modern replacement for the discontinued Bedford Y-series.[1] It also supplanted the heavier Dennis Dorchester.

While proving a success, it has never matched its nearest rival, the likewise heavier Volvo B10M, but has had much more success than Dennis's previous coaching industry attempts: The Falcon V, the Lancet and Dorchester.


In 1996, Australian operator Fearne's Coaches, Wagga Wagga took delivery of four MotorCoach Australia bodied Javelins.[2] New Zealand operator Ritchies Coachlines took delivery of nine Designline and Kiwi Bus Builders bodied Javelins between 1999 and 2005.[3]
