this Ikas-Adno speeder bike was designed to be a combination swoop and speeder bike. The development of the Raptor evolved into little more than a speeder engine strapped to a frame, with control vanes attached to provide manevuerability. The Raptor also placed the driver at the rear of the bike, with a simple safety bar to keep the driver in place. This allowed Ikas-Adno to give the Raptor a larger engine, and also gave the driver more manevuerability by allowing them to use their body weight to steer the bike. While these designs provided incredible speed, the prototypes of the Raptor were considered too dangerous for production. Despite early setbakcs, however, the Raptor was eventually produced shortly after the Battle of Endor, and became increasingly popular.
