"If you take the time to really get to know the Western Daemon, peeling away the associations with gangland hits, sleaze, class A opiates and illegal firearms as you go, you'll find there's really no reason to buy it at all. Luckily for you some reputations are harder to wash than the skid stains the previous fat-ass left on the saddle, so buckle up."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description, second variant.

The Western Motorcycle Company Daemon is a cruiser motorcycle in The Lost and Damned, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

The Lost and Damned

The Daemon is designed as a cruiser motorcycle based on a customized Harley-Davidson FXSTC Softail.

The bike features silver front forks with black finishes on the sections holding the front wheel and the triple clamps. The circular headlight and the circular turning lights can be seen on the lower clamp, while tall handlebars can be seen attached by dual supports. The main body of the bike features a dual lower frame, a square-shaped oil tank and a small black leather seat, while the engine features an air filter and dual exhausts on the right side. The rear area consist of a rear fender, dual frames on either side, a black leather seat, an oval-shaped red light, the circular turning lights and the license plate. The rear wheel is connected by a short swingarm, with dual suspension springs and covered chain drive.

The Daemon can be seen in two different variations: The first one features a circular air filter and two silver independent exhaust pipes, while the second one features a teardrop-shaped air filter and black shotgun-style exhaust pipes. The Daemon is commonly seen with a ghost flame decal that is determined by the primary color, with the fuel tank, oil tank and rear fender painted with the secondary color (always set to black). The only paint job the Daemon can have that are not flames are black and chrome. It uses the same wire rims also shared with bikes like the Freeway and the Wolfsbane.

The Daemon was originally meant to appear as the Deamon in Grand Theft Auto IV, as it is featured in the game's screen shots and a beta version of its file exists in the PC version of the original game. The bike assumes a more standard paint scheme with no decal, and features a small front fender, a smaller headlight and more curved handlebars with handbrakes. The fuel tank was smaller and has the corresponding WMC logos, while the oil tank was finished in silver and features "Daemon" badges on it. The rear light and license plate are mounted and the end of the rear fender rather than behind the rear seat.

Grand Theft Auto V

The Daemon returned in Grand Theft Auto V with the same design as in TLAD, this time featuring fully-chromed fork legs and triple clamps, dark tan handlebar grips, dark tan seats embroidered with the Lost MC insignia and yellow springs, as well as a teardrop-shaped air filter and silver independent exhaust pipes. The rear fender, brake calipers, tail light and license plate appear to be reused from the TLAD iteration of the Wayfarer, as well as several components available as modifications, being the Chrome Mirror, Custom Tank & Speedo, Seat Tassels, Rear Seat and Sissy Bar. The stock exhaust matches the dual exhaust pipes sometimes seen on the Wayfarer; though the Wayfarer's single exhaust is omitted. The vehicle also incorporates a single "Chopper" speedometer dial also used on bikes like the Bagger and the Police Bike.

The primary color of the bike is applied on the ghost flame decals of the fuel tank, while the secondary color is applied on the ones from the rear area. It uses a set of wheels similar to the "Bobber" rims available in Los Santos Customs, with the rear one having a larger profile.

Grand Theft Auto Online

This article or section refers to "enhanced version" content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V and/or Grand Theft Auto Online, that is absent on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions.

V.png

A highly-customizable version of the Daemon was featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Bikers update, released on October 11th, 2016, during the Daemon and Raptor Week event.

This model is largely identical to the standard version, but the ends of the fork legs and the triple clamps are finished in the same color as the rest of the front forks, the fuel tank having no side caps, the seats being black leather with no insignias and the exhaust pipes being black. Like most motorcycles featured in the update, it features a protruding primary drive with an Atomic-branded belt, as well as a chain drive, which are fully animated.

Color distribution is changed in comparison to the standard Daemon, where the primary color is applied on the fuel tank, oil tank and rear fender, while the secondary color is applied on the forks, frames, swingarm and chain cover. It uses the same wheel design as the standard Daemon, although they can support a dedicated color (though only examples from the Content Creator have a color).

Performance

The Lost and Damned

The Daemon is a rather heavy motorcycle with moderately good speed and having a further stopping distance similar to the Angel. However, it has higher acceleration rate, at the cost of high degree of oversteer, so players should he careful when driving at high speeds.

The Daemon uses a chain-driven, V-twin internal combustion engine with a 5-speed manual transmission, as evidenced by the foot-actuated gear shifter. The engine sound is very low revving and odd-firing, possibly attributed to being either completely or partially unrestricted.

Grand Theft Auto V

Daemon

The Daemon has similar statistics to the Hexer in terms of acceleration and top speed. However, it has great steering capabilities, able to take corners easily with no sights of oversteer compared to its TLAD rendition, although it may suffer from slight understeer at higher speeds. Braking is average.

Again, the Daemon uses a chain-driven, V-twin internal combustion engine with a 4-speed manual transmission, as evidenced by the foot-actuated gear shifter. Its engine sound is the same as most chopper motorcycles like the Bagger and the Police Bike.

Installing the "Rear Seat" modification will increase its traction slightly, in the same way as a spoiler.

Daemon2

The second version of the Daemon appears to retain most of the qualities from its counterpart, although seems to be slightly slower in terms of acceleration, but makes up for the slightly higher top speed.

Like the Lost Mc version, the Daemon uses a chain-driven, V-twin internal combustion engine with a 5-speed manual transmission, as evidenced by the foot-actuated gear shifter. Its engine sound is changed, being similar to chopper bikes introduced in the same update, like the Wolfsbane and the Rat Bike.

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

The Lost and Damned

Grand Theft Auto V

Prominent Appearances in Missions

The Lost and Damned

During the course of GTA IV and The Lost and Damned, it is one of the main motorcycles (along with the Angel) used by The Angels of Death.

Grand Theft Auto V

During the course of GTA V, it has become one of the primary bikes used by the Los Santos chapter of The Lost MC.

Grand Theft Auto Online

In GTA Online, Daemons appearing during missions and gang attacks involving The Lost MC cannot be made into a personal vehicle. The Daemon does, however, frequently appear roaming the streets, and can be made into a personal vehicle. There are no visual differences between those used during missions and those appearing on the streets.

Heists

Locations

The Lost and Damned

Grand Theft Auto V

  • May spawn while driving a second generation Baller in West Vinewood.
  • Rarely found at Burton, Hawick and West Vinewood.
  • Making a job for Downtown Cab Co. involving The Lost Brotherhood, you can find the bike ridden by Lost MC Members.
  • The player (using any of the three characters) can come across a "Snatched" random encounter, where a group of The Lost Brotherhood members are attempting to kidnap a girl on South Mo Milton DriveVinewood Hills. If the player eliminates the bikers, he will be asked to escort the woman back to her place. During the trip the player will encounter more members of The Lost MC riding on Daemons. The bike can be obtained by killing the members and stealing it.
  • If the player is riding the bike and quick saves the game, then loads a different save, the bike can be seen ridden by civilians in the area of the loaded save. This is an exploit that can be used to obtain the motorcycle as well.

Grand Theft Auto Online

Trivia

General

  • The Daemon's name is a possible reference to the Daemon deities in Greek classical mythology.

  • The default radio stations for the Daemon are:
  • The Daemon's original orange color cannot be reverted to after its color has been changed.
  • According to the ambient files, the Daemon is one of several named vehicles in-game that make up distant car sounds.[1] Other vehicles include the Entity XF, Cheetah, Comet, Banshee, Carbonizzare, Vacca and Feltzer.
