"The signature bike of Mitch Baker and his crew. Approach with extreme caution."
— GTA Vice City Website

The Freeway is a motorcycle that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV. In the later game, it is manufactured by Western Motorcycle Company & Liberty City Cycles.

Design

3D Universe

The Freeway resembles a classic Harley-Davidson panhead motorcycle in all its appearances, as is the basis for the Angel. It has a long wheelbase, rather heavy weight and fatter tires than other bikes.

The Freeway had minor detail changes through the games, where the following differences can be seen:

  • The Grand Theft Auto: Vice City rendition is the initial design, with twin long exhaust tubes on both sides, small leather seat and thin front suspension forks.
  • The Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas rendition had extra details on the front end, where sports two turning lights and wider suspension forks, a leather seat running over the rear section of the vehicle, a larger fuel tank and shock absorbers for the rear swingarm. This rendition only sports twin exhaust tubes on the right side.
  • The Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories appear to be still based on the initial design from Vice City, except that both lacks the twin exhaust tubes on the left side. Also, in Vice City Stories, the Freeway only spawns in a black paint job and cannot be changed, even with a Pay 'n' Spray.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Freeway resembles a 2007 Harley-Davidson Fatboy, and sports a Western Motorcycle Company brand and conventional handlebars, distinguishing it from more radically designed choppers. The bike is also available with one or two-tone colors, different carburetor caps and gas tanks, and optional side panniers (saddlebags) at the rear.

Performance

3D Universe

The Freeway is the second and third fastest bike in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, respectively. Due to its heavy weight, it is not suitable for stunts or off-roading, but its speed makes it an enjoyable bike for ordinary street-cruising. Its handling and acceleration are below average. It has a very wide turning circle, which can give trouble when parking, or running from the cops. And its acceleration is marginal, but not impressive. All in all this is the best cruiser of all the bikes, but should never be put in a position when high speed and tight handling are needed.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The Freeway has not been changed over the 3D Universe rendition. The bike retains its heavy weight, handling, acceleration and speed. Turning radius seems to be less wider than the 3D Universe rendition, giving it a more responsive driving.

Trivia

General

3D universe

  • In GTA LCS, the Freeway has a car horn, emitting the same sound as the Bobcat.
  • The pre-release image of the Freeway in GTA LCS has a license plate of the state of Florida, like in GTA VC.
  • In GTA SA, if one were to look at the back of the license plate on the Freeway, the generic vehicle textures are visible.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • In both of expansions, the option of saddlebags on the Freeway was removed for unknown reasons.
  • The Freeway is described as "Bobber" in the handling files. A Bobber is a custom motorcycle where most the parts are removed in order to reduce weight (usually a removed front fender and a shortened rear fender). This makes the name rather inconsistent with the bike's appearance, as the Freeway still has its fenders.
