"Bold and futuristic when you first saw these feet forwards motorcycles in 80s anime, this is as close as you'll get to commuting in a retro movie prop. Carbon fiber bodywork, pointless LED displays, stealth bomber styling: very few people are vain and wealthy enough to invest this much money in cosplay. Just make sure you're one of them."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Dinka Vindicator is a touring motorcycle featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The Vindicator is based on the Honda NM4, with the rear's briefly having the features as a Honda Range Adventure.

The Vindicator has a distinctive front light that is partially surrounded by blue outlines. The fairing is largely composed by an arrow-shaped body with the fuel tank and the rear-view mirrors integrated in it, as well as a large curved windshield. It has a custom seat and the first-person view includes a digital speedometer and tachometer found in trucks like the Utility Truck. On the rear end, a large tail light can be seen above the rear wheel, with the position light and turning signals at the end.

"Dinka" markings can be seen on the windshield, lower portions of the fairing and the engine platform itself. "DN4 Vindicator" can be seen on either side of the rear section, as well as the "Dinka" logo on the fuel tank.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Vindicator is generally comparable to the Thrust in terms of handling and feel. Acceleration is lacking for a motorcycle, and its top speed is acceptable. Handling, especially for a motorcycle, is very poor; the motorcycle has a major issue with understeer due to its long wheelbase, and often won't be able to go around a corner without some form of braking.

According to what was claimed by the website, the Vindicator is powered by a 670cc V-Twin engine that produces 29hp (roughly half of the Honda NM4). The engine model, however, is very undetailed, as with the use of the Rockstar Editor, it reveals a block-shaped engine with what looks like outlets on the front and sides of it, while the rear is partially covered by components like the exhaust and the chain drive.

Similar to the Lectro, the Vindicator has a KERS boost ability, which means the excess energy lost by braking can be re-gained via the usage of the horn button. Compared to the Lectro, the Vindicator is better suited for KERS because its poor handling means that the motorcycle brakes in more corners than similar bikes, therefore generating more KERS boost opportunities.

Trivia

General

  • The description of the Vindicator is a reference to the 1988 Japanese animation Akira, in which the protagonist Kaneda rides an iconic retro futuristic bike. Said bike was stated to be one of the major design influences of the Honda NM4. However, this bike was soon ultimately succeeded by the Shotaro, another bike that strongly resembles Kaneda's futuristic bike in the enhanced version from the GTA Online: Bikers update.
  • The default radio stations of the Vindicator are FlyLo FM, Los Santos Underground Radio, and Soulwax FM.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The KERS feature does not work in Grand Theft Auto V, similar to how the KERS feature does not work on the Lectro if it is modded into story mode. The KERS feature was originally unavailable for use during Races in GTA Online.
    • As of the Cunning Stunts update, the Lectro and Vindicator can now use their KERS boost in races (if enabled in the Creator).
    • In addition, the Vindicator does not have a horn like the Lectro. However, the game still recognizes the input as a horn, and pressing the horn button multiple times near a crowded area will make NPCs react to it, often resulting in being provoked or, in the case of drivers, run away.
