The Hakuchou is based on a base-line [[wp:Suzuki Hayabusa|2008–present Suzuki Hayabusa]]; in addition to similarities in its body design, the Hakuchou also features Kanji letter "死" (meaning "death" in Japanese) on both sides of the body, in a similar manner to the Hayabusa's Kanji "隼" (referring to the "[[wp:Peregrine Falcon|Peregrine Falcon]]") on its body.

The [[Shitzu]] '''Hakuchou''' is a [[wp:sport bike|sport bike]] in the [[The Lost and Damned]] and possibly in [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]] episodic packs for [[Grand Theft Auto IV]].

The Hakuchou is a very well performing motorcycle with superior characteristics in 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, and no drag. The bike leans very well thanks to its light weight, but sometimes tends to lose control when cornering at high speeds. The bike is also very good at "drifting", somewhat too much, causing the bike to yet again lose control. Although the turning radius is quite high, it still manages to oversteer, and cornering into 2-lane roads often needs the player to slow the bike down significantly to avoid this oversteer.

The engine sounds to be similar to a high-revving 4 cylinder engine.

=== Performance ===

====EFLC Overview====
The Hakuchou is depicted as a beefier, more powerful sports bike compared to the [[Bati 800]], with a bulky body shell and frame that implies the bike is also tailored for comfort.

Despite its bulky design, the bike performs relatively well, with similar performance traits as the [[Bati 800]], [[Bati Custom]] and [[Double T]] (with a top speed of 155 kmph, a weight of 250 kg, 50 kg lighter than any chopper, and stiffer suspensions) but featuring improved acceleration.
+
===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
The Hakuchou is a power-house motorcycle with a beefy body shell that has a strong, powerful engine. It is a more powerful sports bike compared to the [[Bati 800|Bati 801]], bearing a longer wheelbase compared to other sport bikes. The steadiness and bulkiness of the bike can however, end up being a deficit for inexperienced drivers due to the misleading nature of the bike being so sturdy as It gives the appearance of that it can crash into signs and collide with other vehicles without much consequence when in fact, the force required to throw the driver off is the exact same as other much more lighter bikes.
   
=== Design ===
+
While the Hakuchou's acceleration among similar motorcycles is unremarkable without upgrades, its top speed is one of the Hakuchou's most defining traits, Able to keep up with the [[Akuma]] and outrun the [[Bati 801]] on the straights, It is a force to be reckoned with. Its top speed can be boosted even further by the Hakuchou's trait of being able to do a wheelie at top speed to increase its already impressive velocity to lengths by a noticeable margin. The handling is however the achilles' heel of this motorcycle, as its long wheelbase means the Hakuchou has a wide turning circle and when combined with Its 250 kilo weight, It leaves a lot to be desired in terms of response when turning, especially for users that moved to it from driving previously much lighter and more agile motorcycles. As such, the Hakuchou is a good choice for someone that values speed over handling, or for highway riding because of its power in a straight line.
The bike is clearly based on a base-line 2008–present [[wp:Suzuki Hayabusa|Suzuki Hayabusa]]; in addition to similarities in its body design, the Hakuchou also features "死" Japanese scripts (translated as "death") on both sides of the body, in a similar manner to the Hayabusa's "隼" script (referring to the "[[wp:Peregrine Falcon|Peregrine Falcon]]") on its body.
 
   
Similarly, the Hakuchou's name is a reference to the decision to name the Hayabusa after a bird ([[:wp:ja:ハヤブサ|ハヤブサ]]); "hakuchou" ([[:wp:ja:ハクチョウ|ハクチョウ]]) is "[[wp:swan|swan]]" in Japanese.

According to early screenshots [http://media.rockstargames.com/products/rockstar/screenshot%20gallery/theballadofgaytony/1/1280x720/35.jpg?new] and the game files, the Hakuchou was meant to reappear in ''[[The Ballad of Gay Tony]]'', but almost all players cannot find the bike on the streets or in a specific spawn location. This leads many to assume that it either; has a special spawning code (like the [[Akuma]]), something wrong with its spawning code (like the [[Brickade]]), or is not in the game all together, because few players have said they have seen it, and fewer have said they were able to accually ride one. Some players have even dedicated whole forums to figure out how to find the Hakuchou. [http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=443567&st=20] Even though it's not avalaible in single player, it can be used in multiplayer races of [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]].

"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 in the The Lost and Damned and in 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.

Episodes from Liberty CityEdit

"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 website.
"Fuck if I could pronounce it, but a "Ha-Ha-Coochie-koo" is now in your possession, Angus."
Johnny Klebitz.

The Hakuchou is based on a base-line 2008–present Suzuki Hayabusa; in addition to similarities in its body design, the Hakuchou also features Kanji letter "死" (meaning "death" in Japanese) on both sides of the body, in a similar manner to the Hayabusa's Kanji "隼" (referring to the "Peregrine Falcon") on its body.

Similarly, the Hakuchou's name, "hakuchou," (ハクチョウ) meaning "swan" in Japanese, is a reference to the decision to name the Hayabusa after a bird (ハヤブサ). The term, "hakuchou," in Kanji is 白鳥 (white bird, however in China, Korea and Japan 白鳥 means White swan most of the time) or simply くぐい (鵠); both mean swan.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

The Hakuchou returns to GTA V as part of The Last Team Standing Update. It uses the almost exact 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 at Los Santos Customs, and cannot have its bodywork modified, and it also lacks the swing-arm option like the Double-T.

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

The Lost and DamnedEdit

  • 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 against imports is expressed if he orders this bike from Clay; he will often call it "Jap Scrap" and "Rice Rocket".

The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

  • According to early screenshots and the game files, the Hakuchou was meant to reappear in The Ballad of Gay Tony, but not many players find the bike on the streets or in a specific spawn location. This is due to a typing problem in the game files, one can edit it personally using notepad by going to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\EFLC\TBoGT\common\data\cargp.dat" and change the capital H to small (E.g. Hakuchou to hakuchou). After doing this the Hakuchou will spawn normally.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

  • In GTA V, the brake discs do not move when the wheels are moving. This is most likely a developer oversight. This also happens with the Thrust and Innovation. However, this has been fixed in enhanced version.
  • The kanji written on the bike's side is short-hand for "小さなペニス" (chīsana penisu), or "tiny penis."
