The BMX's top speed, however, is wedged between that of the [[Bike]] and the [[Mountain Bike]], and is not considerably fast as a result. The BMX is also unintended for off-road use, as the player is prone to dismounts from the bike and the resulting injuries; neither is it suited for getaways when pursued by cops.

In [[Grand Theft Auto V]] the BMX is not as fast as the Race Bikes and the [[Scorcher]] but is faster than the [[Cruiser (bike)|Cruiser]], which is the slowest bike in the game. The BMX is quite small and light, making it easier to perform stunts such as bunny hops and wheelies. The bike is quite maneuverable, owing to its light weight and short wheelbase.

The BMX in ''GTA San Andreas'' and ''Vice City Stories'' is indestructible, though will burst into flames if it rests upside down, and the BMX in ''Vice City Stories'' can be damaged by the [[Flamethrower]].

==Trivia==
 
*The ''San Andreas'' rendition features a ringing bell in place of a horn (although there is no actual bell on the [[Bike|bike]] itself). The ''Vice City Stories'' rendition lacks any of these equipment.
 
*Like other bicycles and trains (the [[Brown Streak]] and [[Freight]]), the BMX vehicle is indestructible. It is, however, worth noting that the BMX, like any other bicycle in ''San Andreas'', can burst into flames if the bike ends up resting upside down. This is probably a designer oversight, because the task of getting a bicycle upside down is next to impossible.
 
*Just like any other vehicle, if a cop sees you taking the bike from a parking lot, a one-star wanted rating is applied, just as you get for stealing a car. This even applies if you take the bike outside [[Roboi's Food Mart]], when you've been authorized to use it.
 
*The BMX is the first vehicle introduced to the player in ''San Andreas''.
 
*There is a trick when you pop a wheelie and hold X, you will be in a wheelie until you release X or brake.
 
*Along with the [[Tug]] and [[Bus]], the BMX is one of the three shortest-named vehicles in the [[Grand Theft Auto series|series of ''Grand Theft Auto'']].
 
*In ''Vice City Stories'', BMX is never ridden by other people. Only the player can ride it.
 
*Even that it's not part of the ''Grand Theft Auto'' series, [[Bully]] has a couple of BMX bikes.
 
*In the ''Game Informer'' Demo of ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', [[Michael (GTA V)|Michael]] is seen riding a BMX.
 
*If you throw a [[Grenade|grenade]] at the BMX and quickly enter it, you will be wasted as if the BMX exploded, however, there is no exploding animation. This has been tested on ''Vice City Stories''.

The BMX is a bicycle in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Description Edit

Design Edit

The BMX, as implied, is a BMX bike sporting a compact frame, wheels, and a sturdy handlebar. While the San Andreas rendition consists only of the bare essentials, the Vice City Stories rendition comes with padding on portions of the frame. Vice City Stories also features a female variation of the BMX, which features a step-through frame (as opposed to a diamond frame), a pink frame color and a front mounted basket. The Vice City Stories rendition features larger wheels and higher handlebars, appearing larger than the San Andreas rendition. In Grand Theft Auto V the BMX has almost the same design from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas but looks even smaller. Despite the bicycle's description stating it has pegs, the in-game model does not feature pegs. The BMX in GTA San Andreas features a bell, whilst the BMX in Vice City Stories and GTA V does not. In GTA San Andreas and GTA V, bicycles are ridden by pedestrians. In Vice City Stories, however, only the protagonist will ride a bicycle.

Performance Edit

One of the BMX's major advantages is its maneuverability. In addition to its compact size, the BMX also allows the player to execute super high bunny-hops along with the standard fare of wheelies and stoppies. In Vice City Stories, players can only execute a low bunny hop using the BMX.

The BMX's top speed, however, is wedged between that of the Bike and the Mountain Bike, and is not considerably fast as a result. The BMX is also unintended for off-road use, as the player is prone to dismounts from the bike and the resulting injuries; neither is it suited for getaways when pursued by cops.

In Grand Theft Auto V the BMX is not as fast as the Race Bikes and the Scorcher but is faster than the Cruiser, which is the slowest bike in the game. The BMX is quite small and light, making it easier to perform stunts such as bunny hops and wheelies. The bike is quite maneuverable, owing to its light weight and short wheelbase.

The BMX in GTA San Andreas and Vice City Stories is indestructible, though will burst into flames if it rests upside down, and the BMX in Vice City Stories can be damaged by the Flamethrower. In GTA V, BMXs are no longer indestructible, and the wheels can break off if the player collides with another object at high speed.

Prominent Appearances in MissionsEdit

The BMX is the first vehicle the player uses in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. During the mission Sweet & Kendl, four BMX bikes are used as "getaway vehicles" by Carl Johnson, Sweet, Ryder and Big Smoke to go back to Grove Street after the Ballas destroyed Smokes's car

Also in GTA San Andreas, the player can participate in a side mission called the BMX Challenge where Carl must pass through a number of red coronas.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Vic can use a BMX bike in the mission Kill Phil: Part 2 while he is inside the Hyman Memorial Stadium. This the best way to travel through the Stadium as there is a limited amount of time. 

Also in GTA Vice City Stories, there is a mission called Mashin' Up The Mall, where Vic must pass through various coronas inside the North Point Mall.
