"Bikers, the next big addition to GTA Online, brings the eagerly-anticipated ability to form and lead your very own Motorcycle Club for up to 8 players. Bikers will introduce new roles to play from fresh Prospects to club Presidents with a massive slate of new competitive and co-op gameplay, along with a range of new motorcycles, properties that include MC Clubhouses with a special custom Biker mechanic, and venues for seedy business ventures. "
―Rockstar Newswire description.

GTA Online: Bikers is a content update for Grand Theft Auto Online, released on October 4, 2016.

Description

"Beyond a range of opportunities to climb the ranks within a gang and build lucrative businesses as a formidable MC, Bikers also includes a selection of appropriately-themed new modes for bikers of all kinds, along with new weapons, styles, tattoos and features to make this a huge addition to the world of GTA Online"
―Rockstar Newswire description.

This update, as the name suggests, introduces new motorcycles and allows the player the ability to run their own Motorcycle Club, in a similar form to The Lost MC in The Lost and Damned. Players can also purchase new Business properties to sell product and make a profit, similar to the Special Cargo Network from Further Adventures in Finance and Felony. Many new vehicles have been added, including several new chopper-style motorcycles and sports bikes. Various new weapons can be bought from Ammu-Nation, from compact guns to melee weapons. Also, hundreds of new clothing items are available, varying from half masks, biker helmets, and leather jackets.
