Not to be confused with the Nightshade, a muscle car in Grand Theft Auto Online.
"It's amazing what a lick of dark paint and a chubby rear tire can do for a brand. Drop the hillbilly chic and suit up for some matte-black mistique. Ever heard of flogging a dark horse? You have now."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Western Motorcycle Company Nightblade is a cruiser/chopper style motorcycle featured in The Lost and Damned and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Bikers update.


The Lost and Damned

The Nightblade appears to be based on an Orange County Choppers 10th Anniversary or an older Harley Davidson Dyna Street Bob. This motorbike is mostly used by the Angels Of Death and can be considered as the counterpart of the Innovation.

Like other similar bikes, there was a Beta version of it in Grand Theft Auto IV, having the "Nightblade" badge on the transmission cover, as well as a different handlebar joint with a speedometer dial mounted on it.

This article or section refers to content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V and/or Grand Theft Auto Online, that is not featured on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions.
For a complete list of the features of the "enhanced" version of Grand Theft Auto V, please see here.

The Nightblade returns in Grand Theft Auto Online, completely redesigned with inspiration from the Harley Davidson Night Rod Special. Notable changes are a small frame under the extended fuel tank, an air filter in front of the engine bay and the addition of tubular frames on the lower area. The seat only covers part of the rear section and rear-view mirrors were added to the handlebars. The Nightblade also sports new lights.

The Lost and Damned

As a chopper-style bike, the Nightblade feels heavy in both acceleration and handling. However, it still can reach high speeds, much like other similar choppers in the game and braking is acceptable. The Nightblade barely perform wheelies due to its rather heavy appearance and produces wheelspins on dirt.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Nightblade performs well for its type. It has a relatively high top speed and good acceleration. Its handling is also nippy compared to other choppers. Its heavy weight does not significantly restrict its ability to maneuver, although it does stop the player form being able to perform wheelies. The bike is powered by a push-rod V-Twin engine, producing a distinctively low-revving, loud engine sound. The Nightblade has a surprisingly weak resistance against harsh landings from long jumps as its engine will start to smoke before catching fire from being punished further, resulting in an explosion.
