"This super-fast sports bike can take you from zero to permanent vegetative state in under two and a half seconds. It's not a question of if this bike will kill you, but when, so pay up, and live dangerously"
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Shitzu Hakuchou (白鳥) is a sports bike featured in The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony episodic packs for Grand Theft Auto IV. It returns to Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of The Last Team Standing Update.

Design

Episodes from Liberty City

"The grand tourer to top them all! Able to blaze coast to coast with ease thanks to its 1300cc monster. 200bhp "bullet train" engine and wind tunnel developed bodywork this bike is the one to choose!! The Hakuchou is a King mother fucking missile. Twisties might tie this bitch in a knot though. Keep it straight lining on this beast."
Uptown Riders description.
"Fuck if I could pronounce it, but a "Ha-Ha-Coochie-koo" is now in your possession, Angus."
Johnny Klebitz.

The Hakuchou is mainly based on the 2008–present Suzuki Hayabusa, while the headlights and rear seats appear to be inspired by those of the 1996-2007 Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird.

In addition to similarities in its body design, the Hakuchou also features the Kanji letter 死 (meaning 'death' in Japanese) on both sides of the body, in a similar manner to the Hayabusa's Kanji lettering 隼 (meaning 'Peregrine Falcon').

Grand Theft Auto V

The Hakuchou returns in GTA V as part of The Last Team Standing Update. It uses the same design as the Episodes from Liberty City rendition, albeit with differences to the colour schemes. Unlike the TLAD variant, the Hakuchou in GTA V has limited modifications.

Performance

Episodes from Liberty City

The Hakuchou is a very well performing motorcycle with excellent speed and acceleration. The bike immediately gains speed thanks to its powerful engine, and good traction results in no loss of control when accelerating in a straight line. The bike leans very well thanks to its light weight, but tends to lose control when cornering at high speeds. The bike is also very good at "drifting", somewhat too much, causing the bike to lose control. Although the turning radius is quite high, it still manages to oversteer, and cornering into 2-lane roads often requires the player to slow the bike down significantly to avoid this oversteer. The vehicle sports a high-revving engine.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Hakuchou is a power-house motorcycle with a beefy body shell that contains a strong, powerful engine. It is more powerful than the Bati 801, and bears a longer wheelbase compared to other sport bikes. The bike can, however, be misleading for inexperienced drivers, as its steadiness and bulkiness implies superior crash resistance compared to other bikes, when in actual fact it is the same as some much lighter ones.

While the Hakuchou's acceleration is unremarkable without upgrades, its top speed is one of the its most defining traits, being able to keep up with the Akuma and outrun the Bati 801 on the straights. The Hakuchou's top speed can be boosted even further by its excellent ability to peform wheelies at top speed, increasing its already impressive velocity by a noticeable margin. The handling is, however, the achilles' heel of this motorcycle, as its long wheelbase means that the Hakuchou possesses a wide turning circle and, when combined with Its 250kg weight, leaves a lot to be desired in terms of response when turning. As such, the Hakuchou is a good choice for someone that values speed over handling, or for highway riding because of its straight line power.

The Hakuchou Drag in Grand Theft Auto Online.
(Rear quarter view)

Description

The Hakuchou Drag (formerly "Hakuchou Custom") is a customized version of the Hakuchou featured in The Lost and Damned, based on custom Hayabusa drag bikes. It returns to Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Bikers update, renamed as the Hakuchou Drag.

Locations

The Lost and Damned

The Ballad of Gay Tony

  • Very rarely spawns when riding an Akuma in Star Junction.
  • Very rarely spawns when driving a Coquette in Star Junction.
  • Available for races during Multiplayer mode.

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto Online

Trivia

General

  • The Hakuchou's name means 'swan' in Japanese, referencing the Hayabusa, which translates to 'peregrine falcon'.

The Lost and Damned

  • In an apparent inability to pronounce its name, Johnny Klebitz calls the bike a "Ha-ha-coochie-koo" after one of Angus' possible motorcycle thefts that involves the theft of a Hakuchou. However, if the player calls Clay to order a Hakuchou, he will pronounce the name correctly.
  • Johnny Klebitz's aversion to imports is expressed if he orders this bike from Clay; he will often call it "Jap Scrap" or a "Rice Rocket".

The Ballad of Gay Tony

  • Due to a typing error in the game files, the Hakuchou does not spawn as expected, as seen in early screenshots of the game. This can be remedied by editing "C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\EFLC\TBoGT\common\data\cargp.dat" with Notepad and changing the uppercase 'H' of Hakuchou to a lowercase 'h'. After doing this, the Hakuchou will spawn on the streets as originally desired.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The brake discs do not spin as the wheels are moving, much like the Thrust and Innovation. This is most likely a developer oversight. This has been fixed in the enhanced version.
