"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 bike takes the design of a mostly naked chopper design with a large V-twin engine mounted, fitted with an protruding primary drive, with an Atomic-branded belt. Both handlebars comes with a sharpened spike on the end and the rear features a rounded tail-light on the left and a rectangle tail-light on the right, with a license plate below it mounted vertically.

Design-wise, 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. Also, despite its large chopper inspiration, it is slightly smaller in scale than it's inspirations.

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 has a unique engine tone shared with its Halloween-themed variant, the Sanctus.
