Background: The Biker Advanced Recon Commando (BARC) speeder was a speeder bike manufactured by Aratech Repulsor Company. It was designed for use by the Galactic Republic’s Grand Army during the Clone Wars. The 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. The BARC speeder was also available for use by civilian police, specifically the Coruscant Security Force, to patrol the Republic capital planet of Coruscant.

Near the end of the Clone Wars, Clone Commander Neyo and a clone trooper of the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps rode BARC Speeders during the Siege of Saleucami. Order 66 was issued, and Neyo and his wingman shot Stass Allie’s 74-Z speeder, which crashed, killing Allie.
