The hoverbike is the cheapest form of air travel and a classic favourite. It's cheap, convenient, fast and has a break neck turning speed. Unfortunately, it also blows up very easily if hit too hard, however, it is able to dodge incoming fire easily because it is so small and fast. It sports a small weapon hardpoint that can mount a weapon as heavy as the Lineage Plasma Cannon or the one-shot Retribution missile launcher. It also has a dedicated slot for a small accuracy modifier. Two agents can ride the bike, but it's more efficient when utilised as unmanned combat vehicles rather than transporting agents to and from combat sites. Best utilised in small hoverbike fleets except against ships with anti-hoverbike technology (i.e. the Multibomb Launcher)

The hoverbike is the cheapest form of air travel and a classic favourite. It's cheap, convenient, fast and has a breakneck turning speed. Unfortunately, it also blows up very easily if hit too hard, but it is able to dodge incoming fire easily because of it's small size and agility. It sports a small weapon hardpoint that can mount a weapon as heavy as the Lineage Plasma Cannon or the one-shot Retribution missile launcher. It also has a dedicated slot for a small Cyberweb weapon control module. Two agents can ride the bike, but it's more efficient when utilised as an unmanned combat vehicle rather than as a light transport to and from combat sites. Best utilised in small hoverbike fleets except against ships with efficient anti-air weaponry or technology. (i.e. the Multibomb Launcher)
