I am looking for this specific model since quite a while, but was unable to find it ingame. A google search turned up a lot of stuff from SWG, but I couldn't find a location for SWTOR.

Wish you had a better graphics card ;) – Sorean Feb 5 '14 at 23:27
@sorean I have a 7850, which is just fine. The pixelation comes from resizing the image so it fits better.Not many have those speeders and it was a quick screenshot. I made it bigger so it is better visible. I play the game on the highest settings. – Assylum Feb 5 '14 at 23:29

Looks like the JA-3.

Unfortunately there's no way to acquire that one if you don't already have it. It was given as a reward during the Join the Battle subscription drive last fall, so the only way to have it is to have been a subscriber at the end of October 2013.

Note that the Hyrotii Racer uses the same model with an orange & black color scheme, and can be found (rarely, I believe) in Freelancer & Contractor's Bounty Packs. The Hyrotii Scrapper uses the same model with a grey & sky blue color scheme, and can supposedly be found from seeker droid spots if you're (very) lucky.

Edit: Freelancer & Contractor's Bounty Packs are purchased with cartel coins; they can also be purchased from other players (including via the GTN), as can the speeders that come out of them. Seeker droids are acquired in a level 53 mission on Coruscant or Dromund Kaas, and basically let you "dig" for buried treasure just about anywhere with a 15 second cooldown. You can very rarely get something valuable like a speeder this way.

Just to clarify: What are Bounty Packs? Can they only be bought in the store? And what are Seeker Droid spots? Sorry, but I am relatively new to the game. I don't care too much about the colors, the model is what I am after, since it is the speeder bike from the movies. – Assylum Feb 6 '14 at 9:41
@Assylum Updated with info on packs & seeker droids. – Oblivious Sage Feb 15 '14 at 2:16
Just so you know, I got both blue mounts via the Seeker Droid Spots now and working on the pleasure speeder :P. But yeah, the Explorer is pretty close and resembles the one from Episode V pretty good. – Assylum Mar 9 '14 at 12:48
