First produced in 3030 by Rowell Sport Vehicles, the Bayamo Hoverbike is a civilian hovercraft. It was intended for the middle-class civilian market place on well-off worlds in the Federated Suns.
The vehicle targeted young consumers, and proved a sales success in its time. By the time of the Jihad the Bayamo had failed to make inroads on wealthy worlds outside the Federated Suns. Though off-road capable, the vehicle is typically not used by its owners for off-road recreation.
