The Shitzu NRG 900 is a superbike in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and is the fastest motorcycle in the game. The name suggests a connection to the NRG-500 racing bike from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas; possibly that the NRG 900 is a modernized, commercial version of the NRG-500.


The different of NRG 900F & NRG 900RR.


The NRG 900 is the only series of superbikes in GTA IV, and is available in two variants: The NRG 900F and the NRG 900RR. Cosmetic differences between the bikes are apparent, as the F variant is intended for casual use, while the RR variant is significantly sportier with fewer accessories (the F variant has a license plate, turning signals and bar for a passenger to grab onto) and more aggressive styling. The NRG 900 is based on the Suzuki GSX-R series; The F variant has a similar front end to the early 2000's GSX-R750 models, while the RR variant is closely based on more recent GSX-R1000 models.


The NRG900 is the fastest bike in Grand Theft Auto IV, but is outpaced by the newer bikes introduced in The Lost and Damned. Both variants excel at stunts and tricks; they are, however, difficult to control due to the brutal power distribution and massive torque at higher revs. Its handling character is better suited to circuit use than public road use. It also possesses poor durability. The NRG 900 also features one of the heaviest bodies of the IV-era sportbikes which reduces the ability of characters to lift the bikes and perform wheelies and stoppies.
