The VCPD Wintergreen is a Vice City Police Department police motorcycle in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.


As implied, the VCPD Wintergreen is based on the civilian Wintergreen, which in turn is based on a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide, true to the usage of the Electra Glide by real-life police officials. The VCPD Wintergreen, however, can be identified by the presensce of red strobe lights, a permanently black paintjob, no top box and lower handlebars. The bike also sports a minor cosmetic difference between the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2 versions of the game, featuring a taller windshield in the PS2 version than in the PSP version. By 1986 in GTA: Vice City, the bike is not used anymore by the VCPD.

Sharing a similar body as the Wintergreen, the performance of the VCPD Wintergreen may be considered similar to or better than the Wintergreen's, with good speed and acceleration. Similar in construction to the Freeway, however, the Wintergreen requires moderate use of the brakes to handle sharp corners. Like the HPV-1000 in GTA San Andreas, the player can shoot forward on a VCPD Wintergreen, making the bike ideal for Vigilante missions so long its tires are not punctured.

VCPD Wintergreens will follow the player if he has a Wanted Level of 1 star, but disappear at higher levels due to the vehicule being weaker than most law enforcement vehicules.



  • The name is derived from the character Ex-PFC Wintergreen in Joseph Heller's novel Catch-22. He is called 'ex'-PFC because he has been demoted so many times.
