The Biker Advanced Recon Commando speeder, also known as the BARC speeder was a speeder bike developed and manufactured by Aratech Repulsor Company.[2] It was designed for the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, being championed by numerous troopers in the war, including Marshal Commander Bacara and Commander Neyo.[3] The BARC speeder was the predecessor to the 74-Z speeder bike, which would eventually see action throughout the war. The speeders were deployed in several fields of war, namely on large campaigns such as Saleucami, Felucia, and Kashyyyk.[4][5]

The BARC speeder gave the ordinary clone trooper fighting on foot increased speed, mobility, and firepower. Used primarily as a scouting and escort vehicle, it was readily adaptable for various environments and missions. With the addition of optional support struts, a sidecar or stretcher could be attached to its side.[2] A variant of the speeder existed that the Coruscant Security Force utilized for rapid response.[6] The speeders were utilized by most units of the Grand Army, including the 501st Legion,[4] 41st Elite Corps,[5] 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps,[5] and 327th Star Corps.[7]
