"Great for cruising in the dirt or running an illegal across the border."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Shitzu Vader is a streetfighter featured in The Ballad of Gay Tony, and Grand Theft Auto V.


The Ballad of Gay Tony

The bike's overall design appears to be inspired by various Kawasaki naked bike models (which include the Versys, Ninja, Z-series and ER-6n), featuring a similar shaped body and seat layout. It also takes design cues from other standard bikes such as the Honda Hornet, Yamaha Fazer, and to a lesser extent, the KTM Duke 200.

Grand Theft Auto V

The bike's initial design and influence remain identical, but the bike will now spawn with smaller features and different colour variations.

The Ballad of Gay Tony

Acceleration and braking are average, but the top speed is impressive. The Vader does not handle as sharp as other bikes. However, thanks to its stability, this bike is more suitable for a long distance trip. It is also a great choice for those who does not want the heavy weight of a chopper-style motorcycle, as it is very lightweight. Its short wheelbase and height make it an easy bike for doing a wheelie.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Vader returns with minimal performance changes, other than a slightly-lowered curb weight, now weighing in a 240 kg, and tweaks to handling and turning cycles. The top speed remains the same, but thanks to GTA V's altered handling system, acceleration seems to be more responsive due to better traction; a result of the alterations to the handling system.
