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


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 be 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 average bike weighed nigh on a ton.[5]

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

Space Marine Bike Squad

Space Marine Bike Squads are fast moving, light-attack units mounted on Space Marine Bikes.[1]

Attack Bike

Ultramarines Space Marine Attack Bike[4]

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] These heavy weapons, 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

Ultramarines Scout Bike[11]

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] The bike is usually armed with either twin-linked Bolters or an Astartes Grenade Launcher, while the rider typically carries a shotgun, bolt pistol, combat knife, frag grenades, and krak grenades.

Outrider Bike

These bikes are used by the newer Primaris Outriders.[7] The pattern is known as the Raider Pattern Combat Bike.[8]
