the Ninja Lightning Cycle

While the original Ninja Lightning Cycle was a fast and maneuverable tool for the Ninja Force, it had a few issues. There was its conspicuous color scheme for one, as well as the missile-launching side car; both of these detracted from its practicality, and its 'cool' factor.

A decade later, the concept has been revisited. The new Ninja Lightning Cycle incorporated the missile launcher into the vehicle chassis itself, and Storm Shadow took it upon himself to appropriate one for Cobra (since he used to lead the Ninja Force), and paint it in his own colors.

The new Ninja Lightning Cycle has these characteristics:

C
Ex 20
S
Mn 75
B
Gd 10
P
Sh 0

Communications Gear: the Ninja Lightning Cycle is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This makes for Typical (6) communications power (with a 250 mile range) that has Remarkable (30) ranked signal encryption.

Missile Launcher: the sole armament on the Ninja Lightning Cycle is housed under the driver. This contraption can fire a singular surface to surface missile, which cannot be reloaded 'on the fly' at all. These projectiles have the following vehicular statistics:

C
Ex 20
S
Mn 75
B
Ex 20
Damage
Excellent (20) Edged Attack (fragmentary)

Plasto-glass Wind Screen: this composite-material wind screen helps to keep the driver of the Ninja Lightning Cycle free of road debris. It provides Good (10) protection from incoming attacks that come from the front - assuming they're aimed at the driver, and not the wheels...

Stealth: despite its bright coloring, the Ninja Lightning Cycle is a stealthy ride. At least in the acoustic sense, for it is built with multiple sound baffles and streamlining to deaden its engine noise; you usually won't hear it until it's within your area (Feeble (2) sound stealth).
