The Argo Battlebike
This armed and armoured speed bike is the pinnacle in light urban assault vehicles. It is agile, fast, and wickedly armed. It also comes with all the toys and trimmings like a 2-year nuclear power source for no hassle driving, booster jets, computerized controls, puncture resistant tires, and a whole lot more. An onboard computer that is capable of running the most demanding of targeting and gunnery programs is also included. For weapons and backup power the bike also sports a removable E-Cell, during idle time the nuclear power source will automatically recharge it for maximum usage (with rechargeable cell only).
