"This super-fast sports bike can take you from zero to permanent vegetative state in under two and a half seconds. It's not a question of if this bike will kill you, but when, so pay up, and live dangerously" description.

The Shitzu Hakuchou (白鳥) is a sports bike in the The Lost and Damned and in The Ballad of Gay Tony episodic packs for Grand Theft Auto IV. It returns in Grand Theft Auto V as part of The Last Team Standing Update.


"Fuck if I could pronounce it, but a "Ha-Ha-Coochie-koo" is now in your possession, Angus."
Johnny Klebitz.
Haku badges

The Hakuchou is based on a base-line 2008–present Suzuki Hayabusa; in addition to similarities in its body design, the Hakuchou also features Kanji letter "死" (meaning "death" in Japanese) on both sides of the body, in a similar manner to the Hayabusa's Kanji "隼" (referring to the "Peregrine Falcon") on its body.

Similarly, the Hakuchou's name, "hakuchou," (ハクチョウ) meaning "swan" in Japanese, is a reference to the decision to name the Hayabusa after a bird (ハヤブサ). The term, "hakuchou," in Kanji is 白鳥 (white bird) or simply くぐい(鵠); both mean swan.


The Hakuchou is depicted as a beefier, more powerful sports bike compared to the Bati 801, with a bulky body shell and frame that implies the bike is also tailored for comfort (Remembering that its real life counterpart, the Hayabusa, is a semi touring oriented bike.) and because of its heavy weight and its rather long wheelbase, this bike is amazingly stable and almost never bounces on any bad-condition roads, especially at higher speed.

While the Hakuchou's acceleration among similar motorcycles is unremarkable, its top speed is one of the Hakuchou's best traits, able to keep up with the Akuma and outrun the Bati 801 in the corners. This top speed can be boosted even further by doing a wheelie at top speed to increase its speed to speeds which can outrun even the Adder and other supercars by a noticeable margin. The cornering is the achilles' heel of this motorcycle, as its long wheelbase means the Hakuchou has a wide turning circle, and has to go slower than other motorcycles in the corners. As such, the Hakuchou is a good choice in races which have large amounts of straight lines, but would suffer at tighter tracks with fewer straights.

  • May spawn when riding an Akuma in Star Junction, but it is very rare.
  • May spawn when driving a Coquette in Star Junction, but it is very rare.
  • Available for races during Multiplayer mode.

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto Online

Availability in TBOGT

According to early screenshots and the game files, the Hakuchou was meant to reappear in The Ballad of Gay Tony, but not many players find the bike on the streets or in a specific spawn location.

This is due to a typing problem in the game files, one can edit it personally using notepad by going to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\EFLC\TBoGT\common\data\cargp.dat" and change the capital H to small (E.g. Hakuchou to hakuchou). After doing this the Hakuchou will spawn normally.



The Hakuchou Custom, as seen in TLAD.

Main article: Hakuchou Custom

The Hakuchou Custom is a customized version of the Hakuchou, being based on custom Hayabusas in real-life. The Hakuchou Custom is the fastest bike in The Lost and Damned and the whole series.



  • The default radio stations on the Hakuchou are:
  • The game stats states that the Hakuchou tops out at 155 km/h (96 mph), but the on board speedometer shows its maximum listed speed as 200 mph. This is due to the fact that it shares the speedometer layout with the NRG 900.
  • In an apparent inability to pronounce its name, Johnny Klebitz calls the bike a "Ha-ha-coochie-koo" after one of Angus' possible motorcycle thefts that involves the theft of a Hakuchou, however, if the player calls Clay to order a Hakuchou, he will pronounce the name correctly.
  • Johnny Klebitz's aversion against imports is expressed if he orders this bike from Clay; he will often call it "Jap Scrap" and "Rice Rocket."
  • Unlike the TLAD variant, the Hakuchou in GTA V has limited modifications at Los Santos Customs, and cannot have its bodywork modified, and it also lacks the swing-arm option like the Double-T.
  • In GTA V, the brake discs do not move when the wheels are moving. This is most likely a developer oversight. This is also same happens with Thrust and Innovation. However, this has been fixed in enhanced version.
