"Macho bike for men trying to prove how much they're packing."
―GTA Vice City Website.

The PCJ-600 is a motorcycle featured in the 3D Universe and HD Universe. In the HD Universe, the PCJ-600 is manufactured by Shitzu.

The PCJ-600's name is rendered PCJ 600 (unhyphenized) in GTA: Vice City and GTA IV.

Design

3D Universe

The PCJ-600 remained the same aspect of a sportsbike with an aerodinamic design. Between Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, it loosely resembles a Suzuki GSX600F Katana. In Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the bike receives a facelift that provides the vehicle with a more modernized appearance; it is worth noting, however, that the bike is depicted in its original form in earlier pre-release screenshots of the game.

Grand Theft Auto IV

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the PCJ-600 is completely redesigned with no reminiscence from the previous renditions. Gone with the sportbike appearance, it is now designed as a streetfighter that strongly resembles the 1998-present Honda CB series (most likely either the CB400SF or first generation Hornet 599, judging its round headlight) with elements of a Suzuki GSF Bandit on certain models. The color is either solid or split between the body and frame.

Its engine noise, however, bears a striking resemblance to a Honda CBX 1000 six-cylinder superbike. Unlike its predecessors, the bike comes with a variety of accessories that allows for many variations of the bike, such as dual headlights.

Grand Theft Auto V

"A cruiser, for the weekend warrior who is holding on to the dream"

In Grand Theft Auto V, the PCJ-600 retains the design from GTA IV, apart from different engine noise (being the high-pitched version of the Sanchez) and more color variations.

Performance

3D Universe

Excluding the GTA San Andreas rendition, the PCJ-600 is one of the fastest bikes; in Vice City and Vice City Stories, it's tied with the Angel. Overall performance is exceptional, except in handling — high-speed impacts often result in being thrown from the bike, resulting in severe injury or even death instantly. It requires more traction to balance the performance. In GTA San Andreas, the PCJ-600 is no longer the fastest bike, outpaced by the NRG-500 and FCR-900.

Grand Theft Auto IV

The PCJ 600 in GTA IV is a high-performing motorcycle. It has a good acceleration rate, with its apparent liquid-cooled 3 cylinder engine accelerating it to 60 mph in a short space of time. Its top speed is one of the highest of the motorcycle class. In terms of handling, the motorcycle is mediocre; the bike has a limited turning radius, so a large amount of oversteer is present in corners, often resulting in crashes if the player is travelling at around 50 mph or over. The vehicle has to be travelling at under 40 mph for a safe corner without the risk of losing control. The vehicle's traction is average for the vehicle; while the vehicle doesn't spin often, acceleration on a corner will sometimes result in a burn-out without intention, and skidding is often when braking around a corner.

The engine is stated to be a 12-valve, liquid cooled 3 cylinder engine, which is supported by the 3-1 exhaust manifold (3 into 1) seen on the bike.

Grand Theft Auto V

The PCJ-600 in GTA V is powered by, according to badges, a liquid cooled 12-valve triple, and has mediocre performance compared to larger capacity bikes. As expected from a standard bike, it does not handle as sharp as a typical sportsbike and reaches an average top speed, even when modified. Acceleration is still good, but seems to be downgraded from GTA IV. Despite these shortcomings, the PCJ600 is one of the most balanced bikes in the game with stable handling and smooth power output, making it a very comfortable bike for street cruising and long trips.

Variants

PCJ600-GTAVC-Autocide-front

The unique white/silver PCJ-600 obtainable from "Autocide" in GTA Vice City.

Silver PCJ-600

In the beginning of the mission Autocide, in GTA Vice City, the player is given a unique PCJ-600 along with a Micro-SMG, and a Sniper Rifle for his task of eliminating members of a European Gang who were setting up a heist at a bank in Vice City. The PCJ-600 has a unique silver paintjob, but still maintains the same performance of the regular PCJ-600. Following the completion or failure of the mission, the player can store it in a garage to keep it.

Unique Color

In the GTA: Liberty City Stories races Torrington TT and Gangsta GP, you race against three PCJ-600s, two of which have special colors (white and sky blue). They can be obtained using this trick: Start the race as usual, but remain in the starting line until the end of the race. Wait for the other racers to cross the finish line. Get into the bike of your choice and drive it to your safehouse garage. Leave the garage door open and fire a rocket or grenade at the bike. You will fail the race by damaging one of your competitors' bikes, but it will be repaired once again after the garage door closes. Save as usual.

  • Occasionally spawns beside the water tanker, on the northeast corner of the airstrip at Verdant Meadows, after the property was bought.
  • Occasionally, several of them will spawn in the parking lot of the Las Venturas Hospital.
  • Commonly spawn in the traffic around the entire state of San Andreas.

Trivia

General

3D Universe

  • During development of GTA LCS, there was going to be a golden PCJ-600. This PCJ also seemed to be the GTA VC/VCS version.
  • In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, if the slow-motion cheat is activated, and the player is driving the PCJ-600, its engine sound will be identical to the HPV-1000.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • In GTA V, the PCJ-600 spawns either with a large single headlight or smaller dual headlights. There is no option to change between headlight types in LS Customs.
  • It possible to modify the bike in GTA V so that it has no rear number plate, which would make it illegal to drive on the road. Other vehicles that lack plates include the Sanchez, the Zentorno, the Ruffian, the Bagger, the Akuma, the Double-T and the Dune Buggy, although it could be argued the latter is not supposed to be a road-legal vehicle.
  • In enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto V the PCJ-600 suffers from a rendering glitch. From a distance the bike appears normal but when approached the rear wheel incorrectly loads and appears to be the same width and design as the front wheel. Though this doesn't affect performance and it can be corrected by adding custom wheels at a mod shop.
