From the Movies

The Flash speeder is a sleek, lightweight repulsorlift vehicle used by Naboo's volunteer security force for patrolling the tranquil streets of their peaceful cities. The open-air canopy seats two soldiers. Turret-mounted on the rear spoiler is a blaster cannon. During the Trade Federation invasion of Naboo, the resistance groups organized by Captain Panaka and Queen Amidala employed Flash and Gian speeders to infiltrate the besieged city of Theed.

From the Expanded Universe

The Flash speeder's twin repulsorlift engines are fine-tuned to allow a pilot maximum control through Theed's narrow streets. The craft normally has a flight ceiling of less than a meter, but can attain a maximum height of two meters. It is a slightly modified version of a civilian SoroSuub Seraph-class model.

Behind the Scenes

Before it was decided that Naboo's civilization would employ repulsorlift landspeeders, Doug Chiang designed a number of ornate, decorative speeder carriages. Once given the landspeeder direction, Chiang tried to retain some of the carriage design before opting for a sleeker race car look.
