"It's an iconic American image... A cop in sunglasses and unnecessarily tight pants, cruising down a dusty freeway on a Sovereign motorbike, pulling over female drivers and offering them two ways to pay their ticket."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Western Motorcycle Company Sovereign is a cruiser featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Independence Day Special update.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Sovereign shares many traits with the Harley Davidson Road King.

The Sovereign is the civilian variant of the Police Bike, as it shares most of the design traits with it, only with a few tweaks on small detailings, including the replacement of emeregency lights with more street-standard lights. It always spawns with side and rear saddlebags, along with a patriotic livery that cannot be removed or edited. It has no customization options other than the tire smoke and rims. It can spawn with a tinted front windshield.

Grand Theft Auto V

Its performance is identical to the Police Bike and handles much like the Bagger. It has an excellent top speed, but acceleration leaves much to be desired. The bike gets most benefit from the performance upgrades available in Los Santos Customs, since these are mostly focused on acceleration. The motorcycle is quite heavy, and as a result, it is not as nimble and maneuverable as other lighter bikes in the game. It has a large turning radius.

  • There was a mod/glitch that could change the color of the Sovereign through use of the iFruit mobile app. By using this glitch, you could also apply window tint.
  • The Sovereign has had a special script added that defaults the Primary, Secondary, Pearlescent and Wheel colors, no matter what changes occur. This has effectively created no way to repaint the motorcycle. [1]
  • The Sovereign may spawn at Senora Freeway alongside a Hexer, both ridden by two civilians, this is probably a reference to the movie Easy Rider, in addition, this Sovereign has a tinted windshield.
