Black Templar on a Space Marine Bike

Space Marine Bikes are incredibly deadly and robust bikes used by the Space Marine Bike Squads for lightning-quick raids and reconnaissance.[1]

Overview

These vehicles are equipped with powerful engines, required to propel a fully-armoured Space Marine at high speeds, and boast highly-responsive controls required to perform complex battlefield maneuvers.[1] They are able to operated in a wide range of environments, from shifting dune seas to ice-strewn wastelands to rocky moonscapes, and are simple enough in design that their riders can perform repairs in the field if necessary.[2] Their sturdy construction and wide, thick tires allows the bike to easily smash through rockcrete walls at full speed without harm to either bike or rider.[1]

The typical armament of a Space Marine Bike is a set of twin Bolters mounted on either side of the bike's headlight.[1]

Attack Bike

A variant of the Bike is the Space Marine Attack Bike, which includes a Heavy Bolter or Multi-Melta mounted on an attached sidecar.[1] This heavy weapon, combined with the manoeuvrability of the Assault Bike, makes it excellent at rapidly deploying large amounts of heavy fire-power to those areas which require it urgently.[3]

Scout Bike

A Scout Bike Squadron is a mounted, rapid-strike version of the Scout Squad. The squadron is made up of a Sergeant and between two and four Scouts, all mounted. All wear lighter Carapace Armour but are excellent at scouting out forces a long distance away, which would take too long for Scouts on foot to investigate.[3] They are usually armed with either twin-linked Bolters or an Astartes Grenade Launcher.
