"How can a bike be so stripped down it's souped up? So classic it's contemporary? So expensive it's cheap? We're not sure, but once you're hanging from its mini-ape bars like an orangutan with a leather fetish we're pretty sure it'll come sharply into focus."
Southern San Andreas Super Autos description.

The Western Motorcycle Company Zombie Chopper (formerly named Zombie) is a chopper-styled motorbike featured in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Bikers update.


Grand Theft Auto IV

The Zombie resembles an Exile Hod Rod with a rigid body frame, as evidenced by the lack of a separate rear suspension module. The back of the bike is taken after a Harley Davidson Iron 883 with the fender and two tail lights. It is also based on the Exile Hot Rod by Russell Mitchell. The only differences are the twin headlights, a "tribal" paintjob and the addition of a pillion pad to the Zombie.

Standard versions are manufactured by Steel Horse, while custom variants are manufactured by either Liberty Chop Shop or Liberty City Cycles.

The Zombie will have a wide range of parts, resulting in different combinations. These are:

  • Slim fuel tank, Rounded fuel tank with single gas cap and rounded fuel tank with double gas caps. These will have different tribal paints on it and sometimes, "skull-themed" decals.
  • Whitewall tires and "Redwall" tires.
  • Dual Exhaust tubes and dual exhaust tubes with a single end.
  • Lower transmission covers in a standard form, decorated with "skull-themed" decals and plain covers with Liberty Chop Shop badges.
  • Rider's seat with or without "skull-themed" decals.

Grand Theft Auto Online

This article or section refers to "enhanced version" content in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC renditions of Grand Theft Auto V and/or Grand Theft Auto Online, that is absent on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions.
For a complete list of the features of the "enhanced" version of Grand Theft Auto V, please see here.

The Zombie returns in Grand Theft Auto Online as the Zombie Chopper. The vehicle assumes the same design, albeit with more detail. The exhaust manifold extruding from the front cylinder bank appears to be finished in chrome rather than the original brown color. An added groove in the bike's tire is also added down the center of the circumference.

As with many bikes in the update, the Zombie Chopper features a protruding primary drive.

Grand Theft Auto IV

While able to reach a decent top speed, the Zombie's handling suffers due to the oversized front tire, and the bike is susceptible to oversteer. It can only do wheelies from high revs, and by transferring weight to the back before taking off. The engine is a chain-driven, V-Twin internal combustion engine with a manual transmission, as evidenced by the foot-actuated gear shifter. The Zombie has elongated "ape hanger" type handlebars, which make cornering difficult with the increased sweep caused by the handle arms.

The Zombie has mostly good handling. Its speed and braking are superior to most motorcycles in GTA IV, compensating for its flaws.

  • The Lost paintjob can be sprayed on any Zombie in The Lost and Damned, but these do not have the modifications.

  • In the first mission of The Lost and Damned, Johnny, Jim and Billy extract information from Pretty Boy by forcing his face against the spinning rear wheel of a Zombie.
  • Counting both appearances and all the variants in Grand Theft Auto IV, the Zombie has the highest number of vehicle brands contributing to its parts, with a total of four different manufacturers.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Despite being a Western Motorcycle Company branded vehicle, the Steel Horse logo is visible on the Chrome Billet Primary Cover under the 'Belt Drive Covers' category.
  • There is an error with this vehicle concerning the oil tanks customization, where the 'Simple Box Oil Tank' and the 'Chrome Round Oil Tank' are named the wrong way around.
