"Sure, the last time you rode a trike you were wearing nothing but a freshly filled diaper, but what's the point of being a man-child if you don't get to regress as far as you want? Besides, those reinforced, deep-tread roadkillers at the back definitely don't look like giant training wheels. Go get 'em tiger."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Nagasaki Chimera is a tricycle featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Bikers update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The vehicle takes the appearance of a tricycle (or as the website description calls it, a trike). The design is purely custom and does not reflect any real life manufactured tricycle, however it has similarities to real world custom tricycles. It features large fat tyres on the rear axle and twin springed forks at the front. It also sports a large rotating primary drive and the oil tank is mounted at the front of the bike, close to the foot pads.

Like the Avarus, the Chimera has a vertically-mounted license plate on the rear left fender.

The Chimera performs very well in terms of speed and cornering. It also performs wheelies extremely well, even pulling back completely will not result the player of falling off of the Chimera. Because of the three-wheeled design, the Chimera has the disadvantage of being wider and heavier than most motorcycles, but makes up for its stability and control over curbs, bumpy roads and uneven terrains.

Mechanically, the Chimera uses a mix of the physics used by motorcycles and ATVs. While this normally isn't a problem, this means going off jumps using the Chimera is all but suicidal; due to the odd physics handling, the vehicle is almost completely unable to pitch and roll while in midair. Instead, it will either heavily nosedive after going off a jump or simply remain at the same angle it was at when it lifted off the ground. Thus, taking it to a stunt race or into a mountainous area is ill-advised, lest the player be unable to land properly after going off a jump and getting wasted due to landing wrong.

  • It is very likely named after the Chimera in mythology, which consists of a monstrous fire-breathing hybrid creature with three (or more) animal parts.

  • Its front wheel is not centered correctly, causing it to look odd when it is turning.
  • Despite being a motorcycle, it has an ATV icon to represent it on the map.
  • When reversing, the bike's rear wheels will spin backwards for a split second, before the player actually moves backwards. The trike does not have a reverse gear, meaning the amount of power put into the vehicle in the files is too much too soon for the reverse-walk animation.
  • Although the Chimera has a backfire sound to it, its flames do not emit from its exhaust pipes. This is also apparent on the Street Blazer. This was soon fixed in the GTA Online Import/Export update.
