Notes and references
- Star Wars Encyclopedia of Starfighters and Other Vehicles
- The Joben T-85 speeder bike makes an appearance in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "Gone with a Trace." The events of the episode take place following Ahsoka Tano's departure from the Jedi Order and prior to the Battle of Coruscant, as established by the subsequent episode "Old Friends Not Forgotten." As both of these events are dated to 19 BBY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, "Gone with a Trace" and the appearance of the Joben T-85 speeder bike must be set in the same year.
