Something deep within the American psyche cries out to do 100mph in a glorified lounge chair, and dammit if LCC aren't going to answer the call when they hear it. Don't get too comfy though, cos the engine sounds like it's gargling rocks and your left ankle is never more than a few inches from an open flybelt.
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Liberty City Cycles Avarus is a chopper featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Bikers update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Avarus seems to resemble the Orange County Choppers T-Rex (most notably in the exhaust, frame, gas tank, and back-end), with minor elements taken from the Orange County Choppers Splitback. It seems to be slightly smaller in scale than its inspirations.

The vehicle takes the design of a mostly naked chopper, featuring a front mudguard attached to the fork legs, as well as chrome details on the sharp ends, on the forks and around the triple clamps. On the upper area, the lower clamp mounts a single headlight with a small covering above it, while the upper one mounts the handlebars with dual support frames. There are also sharp details on the upper caps of the forks and the ends of the handlebars.

The main body is relatively long, featuring a single main frame, a medium-sized fuel tank, a grey leather seat with white stitching and a square-shaped oil tank below it. The engine bay features a cone-shaped filter and two short, curved exhaust pipes on the right side of the engine, the latter coming from each cylinder block.

The rear section consist of a large fender with a sharp end, a rounded tail light on the left and a rectangle tail light on the right, with a vertically-mounted license plate below it. Like other motorcycles featured in the same update, the Avarus features a protruding primary drive with an Atomic-branded belt, as well as a chain drive, which are fully animated.

The primary color of the bike is applied on most of the bike's components, including the handlebar support frames, while the secondary color is applied on the main frame. The rims are of a unique design, consisting of four spokes with additional sharp tips on the center and grooved details on the centerline of the rim. Medium-profile tires are fitted as standard, with the rear one being wider.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Avarus is a chopper with a lot of pedigree in terms of speed and its tight turning radius, proving itself to be a worthy competitor for usage in races. On off-road environments with uneven terrain, the bike sometimes loses traction and may end up losing control.

The Avarus uses a chain-driven, V-twin internal combustion engine with a 5-speed manual transmission, as evidenced by the foot-actuated gear shifter. While its engine sound is similar to the one used on the Hexer, the Daemon and the Hot Rod Blazer, it has a unique tone, also shared with its Halloween-themed variant, the Sanctus.

Installing any "Belt Drive Cover" modification will increase its traction slightly, in the same way as a spoiler.

The Sanctus in Grand Theft Auto Online.
(Rear quarter view)

The Sanctus is a Halloween-themed variant of the Avarus sporting unique bodywork alterations, such as a skull nose-cone emitting red light from its eyes as headlights and a rib-cage fuel tank. It reuses some of the custom modifications present on the Avarus as standard.


Grand Theft Auto Online


  • Avarus is Latin for "greedy, covetous".
  • The "Major Milspec" livery for the Avarus is unique and seems derived from the "Die Hard" livery for the Minivan Custom, as it bears the Lowriders Tattoo style decals, rather than the US Army style decals on the livery of the same name for the other bikes. The livery is also available for the Sanctus.
    • Furthermore, in the international release, the "Major Milspec" livery is call the 顽固分子 (Die Hard) in Simplified Chinese, and 赤膽忠心 (Ardent Loyalty) in Traditional Chinese, both sharing the same names as the "Die Hard" livery.
  • The default radio stations for the Avarus are Radio Mirror Park, Vinewood Boulevard Radio, and Los Santos Rock Radio.

    Sanctus features the following lines of code to support the Sanctus being based on the Avarus, rather than the other way around
