Also a passenger of 1. Doesn't look like it has more than the two seats.

Same here, accounting for the single row of seats...

That is a sweet ride. Cool

Re: maneuverability - the ship has what looks like 4 small pod racer engines 2 front and 2 rear. If you could independently adjust the thrust from each engine that should allow the speeder to turn more easily - so I could see upping the maneuver a bit. But clearly it should not be as maneuverable as a speeder bike.

Re: # seats - look at the convertible canopy it attaches (via what look like snaps) well behind the front two seats so that when extended it would also cover the paired squares behind the front seats. I would hypothesize that those squares are the Star Wars equivalent of rumble seats - i.e. they slide aside to provide two extra seats. Personally, I would be tempted to photoshop it to provide a 3 person bench seat in that space behind the front two bucket seats.

Re: cover - since the doors and sides come up even with the back of the seats I think cover should be 50% not 25%. Also by ducking down a passenger should be able to get 75% cover or more. If the convertible canopy is raised cover should be 75% - 100% for concealment though with a chance for a shot to penetrate the lighter convertible canopy and hit someone inside.

I was basing it on cover down... but is that cover hard or soft for the canopy?

Depends on if it's made of Blaster-Proof material or not.

Considering my character, it probably is.

I presume it is soft cover hence - "with a chance for a shot to penetrate the lighter convertible canopy and hit someone inside."

Finding a lot of these Dieselpunk vehicles work perfectly for Star Wars.

The group I'm joining, one person thinks they'll get this one. So, should I try to brush off my old skills and make stats for this one?

Sweet and thanks again!

You should create some more stats to go with the speeders you like.

Xergo Coupe
A classic from the Old Republic era, this two-door speeder was popular amongst the core worlds and the mid-rim for many centuries, and was exported to the outer-rim extensively as well. A popular family car to begin with, the used models were often extensively modified into "Hot Rod Speeders" and used in illegal speeder races often. A common modification was to supercharge the power generator to provide better speed, which overheated the generator, but was compensated by just leaving the hood off the car.

Rusted out, beat up, but well-running versions are also seen in a lot of areas, and are often referred to as "Mynock Rods".

Production ended sometime during the Imperial era, but started up again during the New Republic's control of the Core Worlds.

Craft: Xergo Coupe
Type: Airspeeder
Scale: Speeder
Length: 10 Metres
Skill: Repulsorlift Operations: Airspeeder
Crew: 1
Crew Skill: Varies (Usually between 3D and 4D)
Passengers: 3
Cargo Capacity: 200 kg
Cover: Full
Altitude Range: Ground to 1 km
Cost: 20,000 (New); 5,000 (Used)
Manoeuverability: 2D
Move: 175; 500 km/h
