The Freeway is a motorcycle that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

The Freeway is the second and third fastest bike in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, respectively. Due to its heavy weight, it is not suitable for stunts or off-roading, but its speed makes it an enjoyable bike for ordinary street-cruising. The Freeway resembles a classic Harley-Davidson motorcycle in all its incarnations, as is the basis for the Angel.

In Vice City Stories, however, it only has a black paint job. Going to a Pay 'N' Spray will not change its color.

In GTA IV, the Freeway resembles a 2007 Harley-Davidson Fatboy, and sports a Western Motorcycle Company brand and conventional handlebars, distinguishing it from more radically designed choppers. The bike is also available with one or two-tone colors, different carburetor caps and gas tanks, and optional side panniers (saddlebags) at the rear. It has a long wheelbase, rather heavy weight and fatter tires than other bikes, which give it the best ride of the bikes. The price for its comfort; its handling and acceleration. It has a very wide turning circle, which can give trouble when parking, or running from the cops. And its acceleration is marginal, but not impressive. All in all this is the best cruiser of all the bikes, but should never be put in a position when high speed and tight handling are needed.

Variant

Freeway-GTA4-Stevie-front

The requested Freeway in Stevie's Car Thefts in GTA IV.

In GTA IV, a Freeway is requested as part of Stevie's Car Thefts, appearing with a beige coloring. As a new Freeway will respawn at the same spot until the player delivers one to S&M Auto Sales, the player can save one at their safehouse before delivering another.

Trivia

  • In the GTA Vice City introduction, there is a unique Freeway with flame decals. It is possibly the beta Freeway.
  • In GTA San Andreas the Freeway has two exhaust gas plumes, on either side of the rear wheel, but only one exhaust on the right of the wheel. This implies that the freeway was originally meant to have two exhausts in the game.
  • In GTA San Andreas, the Freeway can be used to enter Area 69 by parking close enough to a vent in the base where there are no vehicles kept. Once stepping off you should land in the base and right on a minigun. There is visibly no way out by either killing CJ or getting out through the vent in the next room.
  • In GTA Vice City Stories it only has a black paintjob.
  • In GTA IV, some game files (handling.dat and POLICE_SCANNER.rpf) refer to the Freeway as a "Bobber", although there already is a vehicle named "Freeway" in POLICE_SCANNER.rpf. "Bobber" may have been the Freeway's name in the GTA IV Beta.[1]

    [2][3] "Bobber" is a term that refers to a type of modified motorbike somewhat similar to a chopper.
  • Upon collecting all thirty vehicles for Stevie, he agrees to purchase vehicles from Niko Bellic. The Freeway can be sold to him for $2,000.
  • The Freeway plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • In both of GTA IV's DLCs, the option of saddlebags on the Freeway was removed, for unknown reasons.
  • In GTA Liberty City Stories the Freeway has a licence plate of the state of Florida like in GTA Vice City.
  • In GTA San Andreas if one were to look at the back of the license plate on the Freeway the vehicle template is visible.
