"The Vortex has its feet planted firmly in the café racer tradition, its head stuck firmly up the ass of contemporary streetfighter chic, and the less said about what it's doing with its hands the better. It's a synthesis that's going to change the world and your underwear forever."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Pegassi Vortex is a streetfighter featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Bikers update, released on October 25th, 2016, during the Vortex and Sanctus Week event.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Vortex is a streetfighter-style motorcycle characterized by its shield-shaped front fairing and lightweight seat. The Vortex is notable for its unconventional L-shaped swingarm, leaving only the chain drive in a straight line connected to the final drive. The bike's design is influenced by the Ducati 1199 Panigale streetfighter, which is particularly evident in the front fender and forks.

Its dial set is the same "Sportsbike" set used for most sports bikes in the game, but features a digital display at the center which has the warning lights on it (fuel, battery, turning signals and others). The tail lights are located behind the rear wheel, directly on the vertical "walls" of the bodywork, next to the swing-arm.

Much like the Drift Tampa, RE-7B, Tyrus, Vagner and Visione, the Vortex features the use of racing slicks for the stock rims, as with the previously mentioned vehicles, this has no effect on performance, and is purely cosmetic. This is, however the only current motorcycle in the game to have this feature.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Vortex is a fast bike that can compete with the Defiler and the Akuma but gets beaten by the slightly higher end bikes of the game. It has decent acceleration and a high top speed. It cannot do wheelies or pull stoppies due to its weight. The vehicle is powered by a pushrod V-Twin engine, evidenced by the details found next to the cylinder blocks. The same is coupled to a 4-speed gearbox.

Installing any "Headlight" modification will increase its traction slightly, in the same way as a spoiler.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Can be bought from Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $356,000.
    • If the player has purchased the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack, this vehicle will be available for FREE.


Grand Theft Auto Online

  • If the Vortex is fitted with the Race Plate in Los Santos Customs, it removes the headlights completely, thus not being able to illuminate in the darkness.
  • It is possible to remove the license plate by giving the Vortex a custom "Seat" modification, which can make it illegal for the road.
  • The "Tropical Green" livery is a reference to Valentino Rossi, hence the bike will have 46 number if Race Plate is equipped and the colour scheme is Lime Green which is Rossi's signature colour. This also serves as a second reference to him, after the NRG-500 motorcycle in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
  • Although the in-game model shows a 90-degree pushrod V-twin, the exhaust note is more akin to a three-cylinder engine configuration, as seen on real-life bikes such as the Yamaha MT-09 or the Triumph Daytona 675R.
  • The default radio station for the Vortex is Non-Stop-Pop FM.
