A single-occupant vehicle, jousting bikes are specialised motorcycles designed to be operated with one or both of the rider's arms free.
Single-hand jousting bikes typically feature a centra steering column forward of the seat but behind the traditional double-handlebars. For totally hands-free usage, basic straps or even partial exoskeleton frames keep the rider's legs firmly in place astride the bike, translating fine user movements - such as the pressing down of a foot, or the pivoting of one's hips - into movements of the bike.
The first jousting bikes appeared in modern arena combat, combining the speed and devastation of modern weaponry and vehicles with the spectacle of traditional horse-mounted jousting.
When outfitted with hover flight capabilities the maneuverability of the vehicle is massively amplified. For this reason, jousting bikes are popular choices for infiltration operation units.
