The 2010 Nova Bus LFX is the second bus used for testing and demonstration. The bus was built in August 2010, and started demonstrating with agencies in November 2010, replacing the previous unit.

The bus features a white body with dark and light blue swirls extending the length of the vehicle. This design is very similar to another 40ft Nova LFS demonstrator. Unlike the previous demonstrator, only Nova Bus logos adorn the vehicle, with no LFX logos present. The motto, "Driven by your city", is located below the windows on the driver's side of the front section. Early in 2011, the bus was spotted re-wrapped and now sports a white livery with blue swirls.

The interior colour scheme is grey and blue. Seat shells are in grey with Holdsworth "blue dots" wool blend inserts, and paneling in different grey tones and shades. The rear facing seat pairs feature work tables with lights, and the interior has Nova's BRT ceiling accents and lighting. Access for wheelchairs is provided by a ramp at the front door and space is provided by folding seats behind the front wheels.

This bus was sold to Saskatoon Transit in October of 2013 as #1310.
