"Bold and futuristic when you first saw these feet forwards motorcycles in 80s anime, this is as close as you'll get to commuting in a retro movie prop. Carbon fiber bodywork, pointless LED displays, stealth bomber styling: very few people are vain and wealthy enough to invest this much money in cosplay. Just make sure you're one of them."
Legendary Motorsport description.


The Dinka Vindicator is a touring motorcycle featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The Vindicator is based on the Honda NM4, with the rear's briefly having the features as a Honda Range Adventure. It has a custom seat and lacks the front light, but instead is split up into two. The first-person view includes a digital speedometer and tachometer found in the Utility Truck.

On the sides, labels read "DN4 Vindicator", as well as a "Dinka" logo mounted on the engine platform itself.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Vindicator is generally comparable to the Thrust in terms of handling and feel. Acceleration is lacking for a motorcycle, and its top speed is acceptable. Handling, especially for a motorcycle, is very poor; the motorcycle has a major issue with understeer due to its long wheelbase, and often won't be able to go around a corner without some form of braking.

Similar to the Lectro, the Vindicator has a KERS boost ability, which means the excess energy lost by braking can be re-gained via the usage of the horn button. Compared to the Lectro, the Vindicator is better suited for KERS because its poor handling means that the motorcycle brakes in more corners than similar bikes, therefore generating more KERS boost opportunities.

Trivia

General

  • The description of the Vindicator is a reference to the 1988 Japanese animation Akira, in which the protagonist Kaneda rides an iconic retro futuristic bike. Said bike was stated to be one of the major design influences of the Honda NM4. However, this bike was soon ultimately succeeded by the Shotaro, another bike that strongly resembles Kaneda's futuristic bike in the enhanced version from the GTA Online: Bikers update.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The KERS feature does not work in Grand Theft Auto V, similar to how the KERS feature does not work on the Lectro if it is modded into story mode. The KERS feature was originally unavailable for use during Races in GTA Online. In addition, the Vindicator does not have a horn like the Lectro.
    • As of the Cunning Stunts update, the Lectro and Vindicator can now use their KERS boost in races (if enabled in the Creator).
