The 125-Z treadspeeder bike was a model of speeder bike which saw service during the war between the First Order and the Resistance.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The First Order Treadspeeders were rugged, shielded patrol speeder bikes which had a design that granted greater traction on unstable terrain. Two of these speeders could be carried aboard an AAL-1971/9.1 Troop Transport.[1] It could also avoid countermeasures that jammed traditional speeders.[5] The treadspeeder bike was designed to catapult First Order jet troopers into the air during First Order operations.[2]

They were piloted by First Order Treadspeeder Drivers, specialized stormtroopers who, in certain instances, were encased in a variant of the First Order stormtrooper armor.[1] Otherwise, the drivers donned the standard stormtrooper armor.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

One such speeder was used by a sergeant of the First Order's 709th Legion on the planet Batuu to take down two criminals who had pinned down members of the 709th Legion.[3]

The First Order deployed them during the Blockade of Kashyyyk, but they were all destroyed singlehandedly by the Wookiee Chewbacca, who was freeing the captives.[6]

Two pairs of Treadspeeder pilots and jet troopers, on two separate First Order Treadspeeders, pursued Resistance agents Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Chewbacca, and droids C-3PO and BB-8 during a mission to Pasaana.[2]
