"With this stripped down custom chopper-style motorbike, LCC found a way to combine lounging with high speed. Even when you're crapping yourself at 120mph, you'll still look cool as ice."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Liberty City Cycles Hexer is a motorcycle in The Lost and Damned, The Ballad of Gay Tony and Grand Theft Auto V


Episodes from Liberty City

"This is Johnny's Hexer. It's the only one of its kind in Liberty City. A modern classic chopper with a 2032cc twin cam engine and 6 speed transmission with a final chain drive. Johnny will need the bike to ride in convoy with the other Lost bikers. "
―Description of Johnny's Hexer at the end of the mission Clean and Serene.

The Hexer is a "modern classic" chopper-style motorcycle built by the company Liberty City Cycles, distinguished by its basic tube frame design and elaborate rake construction. The bike comes with two types of color schemes encompassing the frame, gas tank and rear fender, either featuring a one-tone body color, or a two-tone black-and-white stripped scheme. The Hexer is based on a West Coast Choppers CFL with the choppers rake sharing elements from the Orange County Chopper's "My Pillow Chopper". 

Grand Theft Auto V

The Hexer returns to GTA V using the almost exact same design from Episodes from Liberty City, however, it now features new colour-spawning patterns due to GTA V's improved car-colour spawning system. The Hexer now has yellow spring shocks.

According to the service manual found in Beeker's Garage in GTA V, the Hexer donor bike prior to customization by LCC is manufactured by Steel Horse.

Episodes from Liberty City

The Hexer is Johnny Klebitz's primary choice of transportation featured prominently in the game's trailer and screenshots, possessing superior handling and a unique white-and-blue color scheme (an inversion of a regular Hexer's black-and-white scheme and a reference to Johnny's Jewish heritage, as the Israeli flag features only white and blue). Stated during the introduction of the player's bike following "Clean and Serene", Johnny's Hexer is a one-of-a-kind bike with a 2032cc twin cylinder (V-Twin) engine coupled to a 6-speed transmission with a chain final drive. However, for regular Hexers, they have a 5-speed gearbox.

The Hexer's performance can be described as average, with good acceleration, average top speed, average braking and large turning radius, it makes up for its durability.

The vehicle's durability is one attribute it possesses, despite the looks of fragility on its stripped-down bodywork. The handling is somewhat poor in comparison to other bikes, having a large turning radius but decent braking. As such, it's overall performance can be comparable to the Gang version of the Daemon.

GTA The Ballad of Gay Tony - Tips & Tricks - How to get Johnny's Hexer

Notable Owners


The Lost and Damned

  • Used during most missions, the player can find Johnny's Hexer by loading a save file and going outside, where it will be waiting near the parking lot at both the Lost MC Clubhouse and Brian's safehouse, or when the player begins a mission which requires the Hexer but has driven a different vehicle to the starting location.
  • Regular Hexers can be seen ridden in parts of Algonquin and Bohan.
  • The player can request Clay Simons for a regular Hexer to be delivered to the player, after the mission "Clean and Serene".

The Ballad of Gay Tony

  • Widely available in the multiplayer modes.
  • Can be found in the mission Not So Fast. In order to keep and use it, the player must land the Buzzard near where the bike is, near the north entrance. At this point, leave the helicopter and call a Firetruck. When it arrives, steal it and begin pushing the bike to the safehouse with the water cannon. You will fail the mission for losing the helicopter, at which point the bike will catch fire, so get ready to shoot the water cannon and extinguish the flames, then keep pushing the bike, as it's inoperable. Once the bike is in the reserved space outside, save the game and reload. The Hexer should be pristine and ready.

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Can be bought from Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $15,000.
  • The Hexer can also be found around the Lost MC hideout at Stab City. These ones are unable to be owed or modified however.



Episodes from Liberty City

  • Unlike most vehicles in GTA IV, the Hexer does not commonly spawn when already driving one.
  • Johnny's Hexer is actually blown up in "Shifting Weight" but is implied to be repaired by Clay Simons after.
  • The beta version of the Hexer files exists in the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV. The beta Hexer has black flames, black engine, badges and different exhaust.
  • The Hexer's horn in The Ballad of Gay Tony will sound the same as a GTA IV Freeway. It will also have a male GPS voice. TLAD has a female GPS voice.
  • The Hexer is the first unique vehicle given to a playable character, while this feature wasn't followed up in TBoGT, it was reincorporated in GTA V since every protagonist has one or two unique, respawnable vehicles.
  • In TLAD, Terry rides a blue Diabolus and Clay rides a purple Diabolus. Due to the fact that the Diabolus did not return in GTA V, they both ride appropriately colored Hexers during Mr. Philips.
  • It is the favored bike of The Lost MC.
  • There is an unused second handling line left over in TLAD, hinting that a civilian version was supposed to handle differently.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Oddly enough, despite that the Hexer has a lower value than $10,000 it is considered too hot to be modified in Los Santos Customs.
