- "Ikas-Adno has been in the speeder market for centuries, and the 88-R Nightscreamer might be the best thing their craftserfs have ever knocked together."
- ―Chentu Chek, Tools of the Trade, a chapter from Bounty Hunters' Guild Handbook
The 88-R Nightscreamer was a speeder bike manufactured by Ikas-Adno. In contributing a chapter to the Bounty Hunters Guild Handbook, bounty hunter Chentu Chek recommended the 88-R Nightscreamer as a high-end speeder bike option. He felt that the Nightscreamer was Ikas-Adno's best product due to its speed, particle shield, and the availability of aftermarket packages.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The 88-R Nightscreamer was a speeder bike model produced by the manufacturing company Ikas-Adno that sold for at least 11,500 credits. With a maximum speed of 750 kilometers per hour, it had a forward-facing particle shield that protected the rider from wind and sand, and could also nudge the vehicle away from glancing collisions. A standard aftermarket package was available that added low-slung twin blaster cannons and a rear-mounted shrapnel cloud emitter to avoid pursuit. A side-car could also be installed on the speeder bike to accommodate a passenger or extra cargo.

By 0 ABY, which marked the end of the Bounty Hunter Wars, the veteran bounty hunter Chentu Chek recommended the 88-R Nightscreamer as a high-end speeder bike in the chapter Tools of the Trade, which was published in the Bounty Hunters Guild Handbook. In Chek's opinion, the Nightscreamer was the best product that Ikas-Adno had produced during the manufacturer's previous centuries due to its shield, availability of aftermarket packages, and a top speed that he described as suicidal.
