The Shitzu Hakuchou is a sport bike in the The Lost and Damned and in The Ballad of Gay Tony episodic packs for Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

Haku badges

Performance

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.

Design

The bike is clearly based on a base-line 2008–present 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 "Peregrine Falcon") on its body.

Similarly, the Hakuchou's name is a reference to the decision to name the Hayabusa after a bird (ハヤブサ); "hakuchou" (ハクチョウ) is "swan" in Japanese.

Usage

The Hakuchou is one of the gang vehicles ridden by the Uptown Riders. The bike is also used during races in TLAD.

Variant

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.

Availability in TBOGT

According to early screenshots [1] 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.

NOTE: 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 (Eg. Hakuchou to hakuchou). After doing this the Hakuchou will spawn normally.

It can be used in multiplayer races of The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Trivia

  • The two default radio stations in the Hakuchou are Electro-Choc and Radio Broker.
  • In an apparent inability to pronounce its name, Johnny Klebitz calls the bike "Ha-ha-coochie-koo" after one of Angus' possible motorcycle thefts that involves the theft of a Hakuchou.
  • The game stats states that the Hakuchou tops out at 155 km/h (96 mph), but the onboard 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.
  • Johnny's aversion against imports is expressed if he orders this bike from Clay. He calls it Jap Scrap and Rice Rocket.
