Speeder bikes, also known as hover bikes, are open-air repulsorlift vehicles, usually carrying one or two passengers. Speeder bikes emphasize speed and maneuverability over conventional speeders and are popular with thrill-seeking teenagers and military scouts. A typical speeder bike has a maximum altitude of 10 meters (32 feet) and can thus maneuver deftly over very rough terrain. Some companies manufacture extras like sidecars for speeder bikes.
The 74-Z speeder bike, sometimes referred to as the Imperial speeder bike due to its use by scout stormtroopers of the Galactic Empire, was a speeder bike manufactured by Aratech Repulsor Company used for reconnaissance purposes, as well as rapid transportation in combat zones.
