The '''VCPD Wintergreen''' is a [[Vice City Police Department]] [[Motor Officer|police motorcycle]] in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]].
 
 
== Description ==
 
As implied, the VCPD Wintergreen is based on the civilian [[Wintergreen]], which in turn is based on a [[wp:Harley-Davidson FL#Electra Glide|Harley-Davidson Electra Glide]], true to the usage of the Electra Glide by real-life police officials. The VCPD Wintergreen, however, can be identified by the presensce of red strobe lights, a permanently black paintjob, no top box and lower handlebars. The bike also sports a minor cosmetic difference between the [[PlayStation Portable]] and [[PlayStation 2]] versions of the game, featuring a taller windshield in the PS2 version than in the PSP version. By 1986 in [[GTA: Vice City]], the bike is not used anymore by the VCPD.
 
 
Sharing a similar body as the Wintergreen, the performance of the VCPD Wintergreen may be considered similar to or better than the Wintergreen's, with good speed and acceleration. Similar in construction to the [[Freeway]], however, the Wintergreen requires moderate use of the brakes to handle sharp corners. Like the [[HPV-1000]] in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas|GTA San Andreas]], the player can [[Drive-By Shooting|shoot forward]] on a VCPD Wintergreen, making the bike ideal for [[Vigilante]] missions so long its tires are not punctured.
 
 
VCPD Wintergreens will follow the player if he has a [[Wanted Level in GTA III Era|Wanted Level]] of 1 star, but disappear at higher levels due to the vehicule being weaker than most law enforcement vehicules.
 
 
==Locations==
 
* [[Vice Point]] police station, [[Vice City in GTA III Era|Vice City]].
 
* [[Little Havana]] police station, Vice City.
 
* [[Downtown (Vice City)|Downtown]] police station, [[Vice City in GTA III Era|Vice City]].
 
* Commonly driven in roads of Vice City, if the player has no wanted level.
 
 
==Trivia==
 
* The name is derived from the character Ex-PFC Wintergreen in Joseph Heller's novel [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catch-22 Catch-22]. He is called 'ex'-PFC because he has been demoted so many times.

* [[Police Bike]], The Ballad of Gay Tony equivalent.
