GySEV's current fleet is capable of only 140km/h operation, but a significant proportion of the Györ – Budapest line is already cleared for 160km/h running, while the Györ – Sopron line will also be upgraded for 160km/h operation over the next few years.

Eight of the 26 second-class coaches will be upgraded to composite configuration with five first-class compartments, which will be fitted with leather seats and carpets. Free Wi-Fi will be available in both first and second class.

The air-conditioned vehicles were previously used by ÖBB on EuroCity services but were rendered surplus by the introduction of new Railjet trains.
