- "Just in case the Bati 801 wasn't fast enough, the Bati 801RR ups the deathtrap factor with a whopping 197BHP and a top speed of 210mph."
- ―Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description, Bati 801RR.
The Bati Custom is essentially a sportier variant of the Bati 800 supposedly more suited for racing, stripped of unwanted accessories (such as signal lights and rear mirrors) and featuring mechanical modifications, such as a more traditional two-sided swingarm (as opposed to the base model's single-sided version), a large CFRP rear hugger and improved exhaust system, with large exhaust tips.
It also comes in one of four possible full-body vinyl designs, each primarily sponsoring one in-universe products, including Sprunk (green), Redwood Cigarettes (red/white), Stronzo (green/red/white) and Cerveza Barracho (red/white). As the vinyl designs are actual textures, it is not possible for the player to change them at any spray shop in GTA IV and the Redwood Cigarettes one is the only one available in TBoGT.
The motorcycle is featured in GTA V under the name Bati 801RR, once again being a sportier variant of the Bati 801. It's now possible to change the vinyl design by visiting any mod shop.
Despite having been modified, the Bati Custom's performance is actually nigh-similar to that of the Bati 800, with very little difference in weight, acceleration, top speed and handling. However, much like the Bati 800, the Bati Custom still possesses excellent performance, with a lighter body weight (250kg) that allows for responsive braking and steering, and excellent top speed (297 kph) and acceleration.
The Lost and Damned
- The Bati Custom is more common in the northeastern corner of Algonquin, the Uptown Riders' native territory, where it can sometimes be found ridden around Northwood, Algonquin, or regularly found in traffic at the intersection next to the North Holland hospital while the player is riding a chopper.
- The Bati Custom can be found all around North and East Holland while riding the Wayfarer.
- The bike's frequency in traffic is increased if the player rides a Bati Custom.
- Can be seen in Bike Races.
The Ballad of Gay Tony
- The Bati Custom can only be found in the final mission "Departure Time." To keep the bike, the player must allow the mission to fail by not getting to the airport in time. (by doing this it causes the game to spawn the Bati Custom very commonly all across Liberty City when driven). The Redwood Cigarettes livery scheme is permanent, thus, it cannot be resprayed into a different livery.
- Save the game and redo the mission, The Jewel Store Job and pick the cheapest driver. During the getaway, you will receive the Bati 801 RR. Reload the game, and the bikes should spawn in which you can steal and save.
- Can be bought for $15,000 from Southernsanandreassuperautos.com (Online only)
- Can be found in La Puerta when driving a Felon.
- Can be found in a parking spot off on Clinton Avenue in Downtown Vinewood.
- Can be found parked at the Los Santos Customs in Burton while driving a Buffalo.
- Can be found on Milton Road in West Vinewood usually riding in a group with a few other bikes.
- The Bati Custom is named the Bati 801R in the Uptown Rider's website, which was the beta name for the bike.
- The default radio stations for the Bati Custom and Bati 801RR are:
- One of the paint schemes uses the Italian National colors and a "Stronzo" logo; "Stronzo" is an Italian slang term for asshole and literally translates into "piece of shit". It can be commonly heard in GTA III being used by members of the Leone Family.
- A recurring sponsor logo on the various liveries is "Xero", possibly a hint to the Ducati factory racing team in the World Superbike Championship, that had Xerox Corporation as a main sponsor over the past years.
- In The Lost and Damned, the Bati Custom has a different horn, but in The Ballad of Gay Tony, it shares the same horn as the NRG 900.
- The Bati 801RR is one of two vehicles in GTA V which can have its livery modified at Los Santos Customs, the second one is the Sanchez.
- Even though all vehicles under $100,000 and on Southernsanandreassuperautos.com if found on the streets in GTA Online, can be stolen and stored in a garage, this cannot be stored if rarely found despite it's $15,000 price tag.
- The Bati 801RR and Bati 801 are exactly the same performance wise.
- The Bati 801 RR features a larger mud guard and different exhaust tips with a bit more open tone to the engine than the standard Bati 801
