"An Italian that is rough around the edges but smooth where it counts and plenty of gas in the tank to go the extra mile with sexual analogies." description.

The Pegassi Ruffian is a motorbike that appears in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


The Ruffian is manufactured by the supercar company Pegassi and is mainly based on the Ducati Monster design, with similar engine molding, gas tank, headlight, taillights, exhaust system and seats, albeit with a longer, wider tail section.


The Ruffian is a very quick and versatile sportsbike. It's one of the fastest bikes in the game, only falling behind the Bati 801, Dinka Akuma and Shitzu Vader. Like other high-end motorcycles in GTA V, it is powered by a water cooled L3 engine giving it excellent acceleration and decent top speed. Greater stability is credited to its longer wheelbase, which makes cruising at high speeds safer than other shorter bikes. 

On the other hand, cornering does suffer from this. It is considerably less agile than other motorcycles thus not well suited for twisty race circuits. Stunt agility, however, is notable. Pulling tricks with this bike is quite easy thanks to its high ride height, ease of performing wheelies and light weight.
