The Hakuchou is based on a base-line [[wp:Suzuki Hayabusa|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 "[[wp:Peregrine Falcon|Peregrine Falcon]]") on its body.
   
=== Performance ===
+
Similarly, the Hakuchou's name, "hakuchou," ([[:wp:ja:ハクチョウ|ハクチョウ]]) meaning "[[wp:swan|swan]]" in Japanese, is a reference to the decision to name the Hayabusa after a bird ([[:wp:ja:ハヤブサ|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 800]], with a bulky body shell and frame that implies the bike is also tailored for comfort.
 
   
Despite its bulky design, the bike performs relatively well, with similar performance traits as the [[Bati 800]], [[Bati Custom]] and [[Double T]] (with a top speed of 155 kmph, a weight of 250 kg, 50 kg lighter than any chopper, and stiffer suspensions) but featuring improved acceleration.

The bike is clearly based on a base-line 2008–present [[wp:Suzuki Hayabusa|Suzuki Hayabusa]]; in addition to similarities in its body design, the Hakuchou also features "死" Japanese scripts (translated as "death") on both sides of the body, in a similar manner to the Hayabusa's "隼" script (referring to the "[[wp:Peregrine Falcon|Peregrine Falcon]]") on its body.

The Hakuchou is a power-house motorcycle with a beefy body shell that has a strong, powerful engine. It is a more powerful sports bike compared to the [[Bati 800|Bati 801]], bearing a longer wheelbase compared to other sport bikes. The steadiness and bulkiness of the bike can however, end up being a deficit for inexperienced drivers due to the misleading nature of the bike being so sturdy as It gives the appearance of that it can crash into signs and collide with other vehicles without much consequence when in fact, the force required to throw the driver off is the exact same as other much more lighter bikes.
   
Similarly, the Hakuchou's name is a reference to the decision to name the Hayabusa after a bird ([[:wp:ja:ハヤブサ|ハヤブサ]]); "hakuchou" ([[:wp:ja:ハクチョウ|ハクチョウ]]) is "[[wp:swan|swan]]" in Japanese.

While the Hakuchou's acceleration among similar motorcycles is unremarkable without upgrades, its top speed is one of the Hakuchou's most defining traits, Able to keep up with the [[Akuma]] and outrun the [[Bati 801]] in the corners, It is a force to be reckoned with. Its top speed can be boosted even further by the Hakuchou's trait of being able to do a wheelie at top speed to increase its already impressive velocity to lengths by a noticeable margin. The handling is however the achilles' heel of this motorcycle, as its long wheelbase means the Hakuchou has a wide turning circle and when combined with Its 250 kilo weight, It leaves a lot to be desired in terms of response when turning, especially for users that moved to it from driving previously much lighter and more agile motorcycles. As such, the Hakuchou is a good choice for someone that values speed over handling.

"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"
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com 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.

DesignEdit

"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.

PerformanceEdit

GTA V Edit

The Hakuchou is a power-house motorcycle with a beefy body shell that has a strong, powerful engine. It is a more powerful sports bike compared to the Bati 801, bearing a longer wheelbase compared to other sport bikes. The steadiness and bulkiness of the bike can however, end up being a deficit for inexperienced drivers due to the misleading nature of the bike being so sturdy as It gives the appearance of that it can crash into signs and collide with other vehicles without much consequence when in fact, the force required to throw the driver off is the exact same as other much more lighter bikes.

While the Hakuchou's acceleration among similar motorcycles is unremarkable without upgrades, its top speed is one of the Hakuchou's most defining traits, Able to keep up with the Akuma and outrun the Bati 801 in the corners, It is a force to be reckoned with. Its top speed can be boosted even further by the Hakuchou's trait of being able to do a wheelie at top speed to increase its already impressive velocity to lengths by a noticeable margin. The handling is however the achilles' heel of this motorcycle, as its long wheelbase means the Hakuchou has a wide turning circle and when combined with Its 250 kilo weight, It leaves a lot to be desired in terms of response when turning, especially for users that moved to it from driving previously much lighter and more agile motorcycles. As such, the Hakuchou is a good choice for someone that values speed over handling.

Availability in TBOGTEdit

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.
