The Shitzu Vader is a motorcycle featured in The Ballad of Gay Tony, and Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

Design

The bikes overall design appears to be inspired by early Kawasaki Z1000 models, featuring a similar shaped body and seat layout.

Performance

The Vader has a great top speed, but sub-par acceleration and braking ability. The bike features a lightweight body, which is beneficial through corners, as this grants the Vader very responsive handling. The lightweight body also means the Vader can easily perform wheelies because of the ease with which the front can be lifted by characters. The bike is however good for tricks as the poor brakes allow for better control during slides and endos.

Variants

There are two variations of this bike. One (pictured above) has twin exhausts mounted under the seat, and no license plate; while the other has large twin side exhausts and a Liberty City license plate.
