Hoverbikes were fast vehicles that were often used to participate in illegal Hoverbike Races and other dangerous sports.
One type was manufactured by MegaCorp, they were the favorite of the Desert Riders and were built more for racing than combat. The second combat based type was created by Vox Industries for DreadZone, and gladiators used these more combat oriented models in certain challenges.
Biker One owned a Hoverbike by the name of Bluebell. It was in bad shape until Ratchet used his mechanical expertise to make it as good as new, so Biker One allowed Ratchet to ride it in the races on Barlow.
