The '''Sanchez''' is a dirtbike/dual sport in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]].
+
The '''Sanchez''' is a [[wp:Dirtbike|dirtbike]] first featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'' and present in nearly all other ''Grand Theft Auto'' games (with the exception of ''[[Grand Theft Auto Advance]]''), since then. It is manufactured by [[Maibatsu]] in the [[HD Universe]].
   
The Sanchez is the only dirtbike in most of the series' games, excluding its variant, the [[Manchez]], which appears in ''Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories''.

The Sanchez, with its soft suspension, high ground clearance and very light weight is useful for stunt biking and offroad applications, but sacrifices speed (being slower than the [[PCJ-600]]). They can be found on the streets of suburban or rural areas, and is also sometimes used in the Stadium(s) in [[GTA Vice City]] and [[GTA San Andreas]], as part of side-missions. In [[GTA Vice City]], [[GTA Liberty City Stories]] and [[GTA Vice City Stories]], the Sanchez assumes the design of an older dirtbike model, complete with a large round headlight. The GTA San Andreas and [[GTA IV]] renditions feature more modernized design cues, giving the bike a sportier appearance; this Sanchez may be based on the Yamaha YZ450, indicated by the "GP-450"-sign at the back, meaning the engine displacement should be around 450cc.

In [[GTA Vice City]], [[GTA Liberty City Stories]] and [[GTA Vice City Stories]], the Sanchez assumes the design of an older dirtbike model - possibly an older Yamaha YZ250, judging by the yellow color - complete with a large round headlight. The GTA San Andreas rendition features more modernized design cues, giving the bike a sportier appearance. The San Andreas version is probably based on a Honda CR250, judging by its red color.
  +
 
===GTA IV===
 
===GTA IV===
  +
The bike's design is updated to look more like a later 2000s Japanese dirt bike in [[Grand Theft Auto IV|GTA IV]] (also gaining a newer 4 stroke engine sound), it is still best suited for off-roading. The frame has been updated to reflect the designs of those found on Japanese dirt bikes around the time of the game's setting (2008). The Sanchez is equipped with a permanent daytime running headlight where the headlight is always on regardless of time of day. Like all bikes in GTA IV's single player mode, the Sanchez must be driven with particular caution in traffic to avoid severe injury as the player may easily be [[Involuntary Ejection|dismounted]].
   
Though its appearance remains unchanged in [[GTA IV]] (apart from its newer 4 stroke engine sound), it is still best suited for off-roading. The Sanchez is equipped with a permanent daytime running headlight where the headlight is always on regardless of time of day. Like all bikes in GTA IV's single player mode, the Sanchez must be driven with particular caution in traffic to avoid severe injury as the player may easily be [[Involuntary Ejection|dismounted]].
+
The GTAIV Sanchez may be based on the Yamaha YZ450, indicated by the "GP-450" sign at the back, meaning the engine displacement should be around 450cc, plus the fact that it's colored blue.
  +
The GTA IV rendition looks similar to the 2006-2009 Yamaha YZ450F, 2007 Kawasaki KX450F and the 2007 Honda CRF450X.
  +
  +
===GTA V===
  +
The Sanchez returns in [[Grand Theft Auto V|GTA V]] and appears to be unchanged from GTA IV. It also features its livery variants. Once again, the bike has badging indicating it is a GP-450.

====Black Sanchez====
 
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'' there are three unique Black Sanchez dirt bikes that appear in the side mission "[[Trial By Dirt]]". While the player races around the dirt track with the Sanchez, Three black Sanchez dirt bikes chase the player. Rather than use guns, the [[Haitian]] riders wield [[Machete]]s, but are relatively easy to kill. These bikes appear around half way around the first lap, though obtaining one of these bikes is easy if the player waits on the spot upon beginning the mission. The player can then prepare for the arrival of the Haitians. The Black Sanchez's speed and handling are the same as its normally-colored counterparts.

Latest revision as of 13:43, July 11, 2015

This article is about the dirtbike. For the Federal Investigation Bureau agent, see Andreas Sanchez.


"Get her dirty. She loves it. Cover her with dirt. Take her to vile places she has never been before. Pop wheelies. Get crazy. Woof."
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Sanchez is a dirtbike first featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and present in nearly all other Grand Theft Auto games (with the exception of Grand Theft Auto Advance), since then. It is manufactured by Maibatsu in the HD Universe.

The Sanchez is the only dirtbike in most of the series' games, excluding its variant, the Manchez, which appears in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, and the Enduro which appears in Grand Theft Auto Online.

Description Edit

GTA Vice City - GTA Vice City StoriesEdit

The Sanchez, with its soft suspension, high ground clearance and very light weight is useful for stunt biking and offroad applications, but sacrifices speed (being slower than the PCJ-600). They can be found on the streets of suburban or rural areas, and is also sometimes used in the Stadium(s) in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, as part of side-missions. In GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories, the Sanchez assumes the design of an older dirtbike model - possibly an older Yamaha YZ250, judging by the yellow color - complete with a large round headlight. The GTA San Andreas rendition features more modernized design cues, giving the bike a sportier appearance. The San Andreas version is probably based on a Honda CR250, judging by its red color.

GTA IVEdit

The bike's design is updated to look more like a later 2000s Japanese dirt bike in GTA IV (also gaining a newer 4 stroke engine sound), it is still best suited for off-roading. The frame has been updated to reflect the designs of those found on Japanese dirt bikes around the time of the game's setting (2008). The Sanchez is equipped with a permanent daytime running headlight where the headlight is always on regardless of time of day. Like all bikes in GTA IV's single player mode, the Sanchez must be driven with particular caution in traffic to avoid severe injury as the player may easily be dismounted.

The GTAIV Sanchez may be based on the Yamaha YZ450, indicated by the "GP-450" sign at the back, meaning the engine displacement should be around 450cc, plus the fact that it's colored blue. The GTA IV rendition looks similar to the 2006-2009 Yamaha YZ450F, 2007 Kawasaki KX450F and the 2007 Honda CRF450X.

GTA VEdit

The Sanchez returns in GTA V and appears to be unchanged from GTA IV. It also features its livery variants. Once again, the bike has badging indicating it is a GP-450.

GTA Vice CityEdit

Black SanchezEdit

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City there are three unique Black Sanchez dirt bikes that appear in the side mission "Trial By Dirt". While the player races around the dirt track with the Sanchez, Three black Sanchez dirt bikes chase the player. Rather than use guns, the Haitian riders wield Machetes, but are relatively easy to kill. These bikes appear around half way around the first lap, though obtaining one of these bikes is easy if the player waits on the spot upon beginning the mission. The player can then prepare for the arrival of the Haitians. The Black Sanchez's speed and handling are the same as its normally-colored counterparts.

A similar Sanchez with unique black paint job can be found in The Ballad of Gay Tony during Armando Torres' mission "Clocking Off".

ManchezEdit

The Manchez, featured in GTA Liberty City Stories, serves as an improved variant of the Sanchez with a rugged exterior and superior performance.

TriviaEdit

  • The model number "GP-450" over the rear fender of the GTA IV rendition of the Sanchez is similar in format to the names of other sportbikes in the GTA series (including the PCJ-600, BF-400, HPV-1000, FCR-900, NRG-500 and NRG-900). This indicates that the engine is most likely a 450cc single-cylinder.
  • In GTA San Andreas, as it may be based off a classic American dirtbike, the Sanchez along with the Freeway are the only American based motorcycles in the game.
  • Sánchez (correct form of the surname with accent mark), meaning "son of Sancho", is a very common Spanish name with some deformations in America like Sanchez or Sanches. Sánchez is the 5th most popular surname in Spain, 10th in Argentina and 52nd in the United States.
  • The Sanchez is the Forelli Family's vehicle of choice in GTA: Vice City
  • In GTA IV, you can hear the Sanchez spit flames through the exhaust, although the flame is not visible.

  • In the beta version of GTA San Andreas, the Sanchez had the same design as GTA Vice City's Sanchez.[1]
  • The Sanchez's name, along with the fact that it is a dirt bike, may be a reference to "Dirty Sanchez", which is a slang term for a sex act associated with coprophilia.
  • The Gangstar video games series for the iOS, mostly based on the GTA games, features a dirt bike with the same name and appearance.
  • In GTA IV, the Sanchez is the only bike in the game without an electric starter. It is started by a kickstart instead, even though when turning the engine over an electric starter motor can be heard.
  • In the HD Universe, the Sanchez's engine sound is similar to the stereotypical of an underbone motorcycles.
  • The Sanchez (livery) is one of four vehicles, along with the PCJ-600 (once modified), Zentorno and Dune Buggy, to have no number plate. This means it cannot legally be driven on the road, though the lack of number plate is probably explained by its main purpose as an off-road vehicle.
  • In GTA V, the Sanchez can climb up to 70 degrees, although the more vertical the player goes, the slower the Sanchez will perform.
  • As of The High Life Update, flat-colored Sanchez can now be resprayed.
