The PCJ-600's name is rendered PCJ 600 (unhyphenized) in GTA: Vice City and GTA IV.
GTA Vice City — GTA Vice City Stories
The PCJ-600 between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories loosely resembles a Suzuki GSX600F Katana. In GTA Liberty City Stories, the bike receives a facelift that provides the vehicle with a more modernized appearance; it is worth noting, however, that the bike is depicted in its original form in earlier pre-release screenshots of the game.

GTA IVIn GTA IV, the PCJ-600 is completely redesigned with no reminiscence from the previous renditions. Gone with the sportbike appearance, it is now designed as a streetfighter that strongly resembles the 1998-present Honda CB series (most likely either the CB400SF or first generation Hornet 599, judging its round headlight) with elements of a Suzuki GSF Bandit on certain models. The color is either solid or split between the body and frame.
Its engine noise, however, bears a striking resemblance to a Honda CBX 1000 six-cylinder superbike.
Unlike its predecessors, the bike comes with a variety of accessories that allows for many variations of the bike, such as dual headlights.
In GTA V, the PCJ-600 retains the design from GTA IV, apart from different engine noise (being the high-pitched version of the Sanchez) and more color variations.
GTA Vice City - GTA Vice City Stories
Excluding the GTA San Andreas rendition, the PCJ-600 is one of the fastest bikes; in Vice City and Vice City Stories, it's tied with the Angel. Overall performance is exceptional, except in handling — high-speed impacts often result in being thrown from the bike, resulting in severe injury or even collapse instantly. It requires more traction to balance the performance. In GTA San Andreas, the PCJ-600 is no longer the fastest bike, outpaced by the NRG-500 and FCR-900.
In GTA IV, the PCJ-600 is the second-fastest bike (after the NRG 900). Due to the time it takes an NRG 900 to attain its top speed, the PCJ can outrun the NRG in a Race if the PCJ rider leans forward. Both bikes have the same 0-60mph time of 4.4 seconds. The PCJ-600 appears to be powered by a 3 cylinder engine, possibly 600cc (hence the '600' in the name). The PCJ shares the same engine sound with the Vader. In the hands of an experienced rider, the PCJ-600 can outrun any NRG 900. But be warned that in both TBOGT and TLAD new fast bikes are introduced and may put this bike in the shade. While the NRG 900 could be hard to control at certain times, the PCJ-600 could be a good alternative for beating the NRG in an online race since it is easier to ride.
The PCJ-600 in GTA V is powered by a 675cc liquid cooled 12-valve triple and has mediocre performance compared to larger capacity bikes. As expected from a standard bike, it does not handle as sharp as a typical sportsbike and reaches an average top speed, even when modified. Acceleration is still good, but seems to be downgraded from GTA IV. Despite these shortcomings, the PCJ600 is one of the most balanced bikes in the game with stable handling and smooth power output, making it a very comfortable bike for street cruising and long trips.
Variants with unique colors
- Silver PCJ-600
In the beginning of the mission Autocide, in GTA Vice City, the player is given a unique PCJ-600 along with a Micro-SMG, and a Sniper Rifle for his task of eliminating members of a European Gang who were setting up a heist at a bank in Vice City. The PCJ-600 has a unique silver paintjob, but still maintains the same performance of the regular PCJ-600. Following the completion or failure of the mission, the player can store it in a garage to keep it.

- During development of GTA LCS, there was going to be a golden PCJ-600. This PCJ also seemed to be the GTA VC/VCS version.
- The default radio stations in the PCJ-600 are:
- In GTA V, the PCJ-600 spawns either with a large single headlight or smaller dual headlights. There is no option to change between headlight types in LS Customs.
- It possible to modify the bike in GTA V so that it has no rear number plate, which would make it illegal to drive on the road. Other vehicles that lack plates include the Sanchez, the Zentorno, the Ruffian and the Dune Buggy, although it could be argued the latter is not supposed to be a road-legal vehicle.
In the GTA: Liberty City Stories races Torrington TT and Gangsta GP, you race against three PCJ-600s, two of which have special colors (white and sky blue). They can be obtained using this trick: Start the race as usual, but remain in the starting line until the end of the race. Wait for the other racers to cross the finish line. Get into the bike of your choice and drive it to your safehouse garage. Leave the garage door open and fire a rocket or grenade at the bike. You will fail the race by damaging one of your competitors' bikes, but it will be repaired once again after the garage door closes. Save as usual.
