Manufactured by CandleMotors of Claybrooke, FWL, the Jackrabbit Hoverbike is loosely based on a military design (the “O-bake-mono” of House Kurita). Not requiring armor or weapons of a Skimmer, it trades off the fusion engine for a lighter electric battery system, making it cheaper and more reliable.

At inception, the design was meant to market to the individualist frontiersman. Popular tri-vid publicity on Claybrroke, quickly converted it into a “must have” item for teenagers across the planet, and it became one of the company’s best sellers. Although this spread to nearby worlds to a limited degree, the Jackrabbit has remained a staple of planetary company sales for nearly a century, with only cosmetic changes to its chassis and optional electronics packages.

As a luxury item, the vehicle remained popular, and even essential for isolated farms and ranchers in the Black Hills. It became vary popular among many of the troopers serving in Captain Fionna’s “Snow Dusters”, and was easily procured through purely legal means. Its simplicity and ruggedness have allowed it be maintained with little expense and is an essential part of the Iron Dingoes Force Recon mission specifications.
