"Great for cruising in the dirt or running an illegal across the border." description.

The Shitzu Vader is a streetfighter featured in The Ballad of Gay Tony, and Grand Theft Auto V.


The bike's overall design appears to be inspired by early Kawasaki Z models, featuring a similar shaped body and seat layout. It also takes design cues from other standard bikes such as the Honda Hornet, Yamaha Fazer, and to a lesser extent, the KTM Duke 200.


Acceleration and braking are average, but the top speed is impressive. Being a standard bike, the Vader does not handle as sharp as a typical sportsbike. However, thanks to its stability, this bike is more suitable for a long distance trip than any sportsbikes in the game (Except for the Hakuchou, which is a semi touring sportsbike). It is also a great choice for those who does not want the heavy weight of a cruiser bike or a semi touring bike. Its short wheelbase and height make it an easy bike for doing a wheelie.
