Anyone know what vehicles these are?

#1: looks similar to the Pirate Speeder Bike.
#2: Looks familiar, but best I could find was the front looks similar to the front of the G1-M4-C Dunelizard.

Is the source a comic book? Perhaps including more information would be helpful.

Yes it is from a one-shot comic, Rise of The Republic: Darth Maul #1, page o4, panel 1.

To me they would appear to be variants of the Speederbike or Repulsorbike. Possibly owner customized, or variant manufacturers from those used by the Imperials on Endor.

My best guess for the #2 is a Bespin Motors JR-4 Swoop Bike.

I think you're spot on with the pirate speeder.

You might find them here: https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Speeder_bikes
The icons are too small for me on this laptop.

The yellow and green speeders are Viper Speeder Bike's
and look very much like the Aratech 74-Z but these are a civilian version that was available in 21 BBY. I named them Aratech 74-A "Viper" Speeder Bike.

I looked closer and if you elongate the front fairing, the read is enough of a match, I could see this being a variant of the JR-4 model. Perhaps what we see in the comic panel is the original version and what we see in WG books in the stripped down work version used on Bespin.

As the Pirate Speeder Bikes are probably customizations of the same model I am comfortable with this inference.

Here is another vehicle from the same comic. It looks really cool, but unfortunately, it doesn't have a name let alone any information. Not a huge deal, I can come up with that on my own or we can crowd source it through The Pit. Looks so damn awesome!

Oh, wow... I recognize those pieces... that vehicle was built using a 3D vehicle construction kit! Some of those parts I have used in many a vehicle, fighter, and ship I have created for my own sci-fi projects. That front end is definitely from Davorama's Flight Vehicle Construction Set...as is part of or all of the undercarriage.

Taking a closer look, the vehicle could be a repulsor semi-tractor or a heavy duty repulsor truck pulling a repulsor flatbed with a few medium to large cargo containers. Thoughts?

Judging from the second panel with a somewhat overhead view I would tend to concur that it is a repulsor truck and repulsor flatbed/sled. There is definitely a visible separation between the forward cab and the rear bed, and the items on the trailer look as if the intent was for it to be cargo containers. I don't know if this vehicle and it's cargo were part of the story, which would help shed light on this, or just creative backdrop to fill in the street scene.

Darth Maul poses as a member of the fictitious Kaitis Cartel to work with the thief Zek Peiro to steal a transfer of scarn also known as pre-spice, a compound used to create spice. The sellers are waiting for the buyer, who show up driving swoops. After killing both groups Zek finds a briefcase of scarn hidden in the driving compartment of the repulsor rig.
