|This article is about a vehicle in Kamen Rider 555.|
The Transforming-type Variable Vehicle SB-913V Side Basshar (可変型バリアブルビークル ＳＢ－９１３Ｖ サイドバッシャー, Kahen-gata Bariaburu Bīkuru SB-913V Saido Basshā) is Kaixa's support mecha, and can transform into either a sidecar-type motorcycle Vehicle Mode (ビークルモード, Bīkuru Mōdo) or a bipedal walker-type battle Mech Battle Mode (バトルモード, Batoru Mōdo). Neither form offers any significant protection to the driver.
Like the SB-555V Auto Vajin, the Side Basher also has limited A.I. and is programmed to help and protect the user of the Kaixa Gear. On a side note, Side Basshar's A.I. seems less advanced than Auto Vajin's, as the occasions where it is seen acting on its own are rare. It is the only Rider support vehicle that survived through both the end of the series and the movie, although its user did not. Its ultimate fate in both cases is unknown however. In the Director's Cut of the movie it was mass produced for Riotrooper use.
While hunting the Kamen Riders, Tsukasa used an Attack Ride to transform Machine Decader into Side Basshar, using it in conjunction with Kamen Rider G4's Gigant to defeat Kamen Rider J. 「Kamen Rider Decade: Final Chapter」
All Rider Break
Kaixa got on his Side Basshar, among many other Kamen Riders and their Rider Machines, to perform the All Rider Break attack which ended the final battle with Rock Great Leader. 「OOO, Den-O, All Riders: Let's Go Kamen Riders」

The main form of the Side Basshar is a sidecar-attached motorcycle as the name suggest. It rarely leaves this form during both the series and the movie. In this form, it can travel through rough terrain safely and its light can shine up to 50 meters ahead and make the roads as clear as it is in the daylight. The side car can be detached from the motorcycle and move on its own. The tires are made of Sol Rubber (a stronger version of Sol Foam) and the main chassis and plating are made from a similar substance to that of the Kamen Rider Gears.
While saying "BATTLE MODE", the Side Basshar transforms into a walker-type battle Mecha. The sidecar becomes the unit's legs, while the vehicle's wheels transform into arm-like appendages. The fork becomes the right arm; sporting the four-barreled Photon Vulcan, and the double pincered Heat Point capable of generating temperatures up to 2000°C during grappling attacks. The Swing arm becomes the left arm with the exhaust pipes becoming the X-zap Buster that can fire 6 Smart Brain multistage sidewinder mini-missiles, that in turn split into a further 8 micro-missiles (48 in total) with a range of 2400 meters. Despite the transformation of the forks, the handlebars remain connected to the main frame and become the mecha's main controls.Though surprisingly fast and mobile for a machine of its size and shape (it is seen jumping up onto a motorway overpass and leaping over an incoming missile barrage), the Side Basshar lacks maneuverability in Battle Mode. It has difficulty tracking more agile targets, and can only attack targets that are in front of it; weaknesses that were exploited by knowledgeable opponents (such as Takumi Inui).
- Side Basshar is the only rider machine that has a sidecar attached to it.
- There are unused combinations of the SB-555T Faiz Blaster that allow Faiz to command the Side Basshar.
- Its Battle Mode has a resemblance to the ED-209 from the RoboCop movies.
