The Western Motorcycle Company Police Bike is a police motorcycle that appears in The Ballad of Gay Tony, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Description

The Ballad of Gay Tony

The Police Bike is added to the game as a DLC vehicle is never seen used by the police in normal gameplay.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Police Bike is considerably rare in the original version of the game with only one appearance in the storyline. In the enhanced version, it commonly appears parked at police stations or on highway roadsides. Despite having an LSPD livery on the bike, the only force to use it are the San Andreas Highway Patrol. The siren has also been changed in the enhanced version; the primary siren is now a yelp-siren and its noise is more electric.

Design

The Ballad of Gay Tony

It is based on the Harley-Davidson Road King FLHP. It is similar to an Electra Glide, but is closer in design to the Road King due to the lack of a fairing. The Police Bike can only seat one person due to the top box for the electrical system being in the way, which means it has the smallest passenger capacity of any vehicle in the game, along with several vehicles (such the Forklift, the Rhino, etc.). In multiplayer the police are not seen riding the bike or pursuing the player in it (much like the Police Stinger and Police Buffalo).

Grand Theft Auto V

In Grand Theft Auto V, the bike reappears with almost the exact look as in TBoGT, except for a few details. The bike no longer features high sirens, but they are replaced by more LED lights over the front wheel cover, the sides and the rear end of the rear section of the same (instead of being turned on when the vehicle's engine is on, these are currently emergency lights). Unlike the previous appearance, police officers are seen using these bikes.

The civilian variant of the Police Bike is the Sovereign.

Performance

The Ballad of Gay Tony

Being based on a Harley-Davidson Road King, the bike is somewhat heavy but high in power and torque, meaning its top speed and acceleration are average for motorcycles, but higher than most cars. However, the handling is excellent for such a heavy bike, with its powerful brakes being another positive. The bike can also withstand more damage than any other bike in the game, and takes virtually no damage when shot in the saddle bags.

Grand Theft Auto V

Returning to Grand Theft Auto V, the bike's acceleration and top speed capabilities remain unchanged, however, the response of setting off (including traction) has been greatly improved, and with GTA V's new handling physics, the bike is much more responsive for cornering and braking. Because of the bike's weight, the Police Bike is not a bike capable of successful or easy wheelies, often the bike attempts to pull itself back down when at high speed due to gravitational force, but it also tends to be sluggish at wheelies even at moderate speeds.

Trivia

The Ballad of Gay Tony

  • The default radio stations for the Police Bike are Liberty Rock Radio and Liberty City Hardcore (multiplayer only).
  • In The Ballad of Gay Tony, if the player turns on the siren and looks through the windshield, they may notice that they can see right through the coverings on the high sirens, as if they had been shot off. This also happens when they are submerged in water.
  • The Police Bike is the only LCPD vehicle to feature blue and red lights as opposed to the standard red and white lights, similar to the Police Stinger and the Police Stockade.
  • Sometimes, when activating the vehicle's siren, traffic will not react as they would do with other law enforcement vehicles.
  • Upon entering the Police Bike, the vehicle's generic motorcycle entering animation causes the player to grip onto invisible handle bars, before shortly reaching for the physical handle bars.
  • If the Police Bike is occupied by an NPC, it will have the horn of a Freeway and Hexer.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • In GTA V, If the player is being chased by a Police Bike, the officer will shoot at the player even if the player only has one star.
  • The unit number (69269) on the Police Bike is a reference to the 69 sex position.
  • Unlike any other emergency vehicle in the game, the Police Bike's rear light will not flash when the lights and sirens are activated.
