One of the BMX's major advantages is its maneuverability. In addition to its compact size, the BMX also allows the player to execute super high bunny-hops along with the standard fare of wheelies and stoppies. In GTA Vice City Stories, players can only execute a low bunny hop using the BMX.

The BMX's top speed, however, is wedged between that of the [[Bike]] and the [[Mountain Bike]], and is not considerably fast as a result. The BMX is also unintended for off-road use, as the player is prone to dismounts from the bike and the resulting injuries; neither is it suited for getaways when pursued by cops.

In [[Grand Theft Auto V]] the BMX is not as fast as the Race Bikes and the [[Scorcher]] but is faster than the [[Cruiser (bike)|Cruiser]] which is the slowest bike in the game. The BMX is quite small and light, making it easier to perform stunts such as bunny hops and wheelies. The bike is quite maneuverable, owing to its light weight and short wheelbase.
*The GTA San Andreas rendition features a ringing bell in place of a horn (although there is no actual bell on the bike itself). The GTA Vice City Stories rendition lacks any of these equipment.
+
*Like other bicycles and trains (the [[Brown Streak]] and [[Freight]]), the BMX vehicle is indestructible. It is, however, worth noting that the BMX, like any other bicycle in GTA San Andreas, can burst into flames if the bike ends up resting upside down. This is probably a designer oversight, because the task of getting a bicycle upside down is next to impossible.

==Prominent Appearances in Missions==
*Just like any other vehicle, if a cop sees you taking the bike from a parking lot, a one-star wanted rating is applied, just as you get for stealing a car. This even applies if you take the bike outside Roboi's Food Mart, when you've been authorized to use it.
+
In [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], four BMX bikes are used in the mission [[Sweet & Kendl]] as "getaway vehicles" by [[Carl Johnson]], [[Sweet]], [[Ryder]] and [[Big Smoke]] to go back to [[Grove Street]] after the [[Ballas]] destroyed Smokes's [[Perennial|car]].

The BMX is a bicycle in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, and Grand Theft Auto V.

Description Edit

Design Edit

The BMX, as implied, a BMX bike sporting compact frame and wheels, and a sturdy handlebar. While the San Andreas rendition consists only of the bare essentials, the Vice City Stories rendition comes with padding on portions of the frame; Vice City Stories even features a girly variation of the BMX, which features a step-through frame (as opposed to a diamond frame), a pink frame color and a front mounted basket. The Vice City Stories rendition features larger wheels and higher handlebars, appearing larger than the San Andreas rendition. In Grand Theft Auto V the BMX has almost the same design from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas but looks even smaller.

Performance Edit

One of the BMX's major advantages is its maneuverability. In addition to its compact size, the BMX also allows the player to execute super high bunny-hops along with the standard fare of wheelies and stoppies. In Vice City Stories, players can only execute a low bunny hop using the BMX.

The BMX's top speed, however, is wedged between that of the Bike and the Mountain Bike, and is not considerably fast as a result. The BMX is also unintended for off-road use, as the player is prone to dismounts from the bike and the resulting injuries; neither is it suited for getaways when pursued by cops.

In Grand Theft Auto V the BMX is not as fast as the Race Bikes and the Scorcher but is faster than the Cruiser which is the slowest bike in the game. The BMX is quite small and light, making it easier to perform stunts such as bunny hops and wheelies. The bike is quite maneuverable, owing to its light weight and short wheelbase.

Prominent Appearances in MissionsEdit

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, four BMX bikes are used in the mission Sweet & Kendl as "getaway vehicles" by Carl Johnson, Sweet, Ryder and Big Smoke to go back to Grove Street after the Ballas destroyed Smokes's car

Also in GTA San Andreas, there is a mission called BMX Challenge where you have to pick all the red coronas within 2 minutes. 

In Grand Theft Auto:Vice City Stories, you can use a BMX bike in the mission Kill Phil: Part 2 while you're inside the Hyman Memorial Stadium, and it's the best way to go through the Stadium as there is a limited amount of time. 

Also in GTA Vice City Stories, there is a mission called Mashin' Up The Mall, where you have to pick coronas inside the North Point Mall, but is significantly harder than the BMX Challenge.
