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. The only differences are the twin headlights, a "tribal" paintjob and the addition of a pillion pad to the Zombie.

The Zombie is a bulky motorcycle, featuring a telescopic fork with black details on it, dual circular headlights on the lower triple clamp and black elongated, "ape hanger" type handlebars connected to the upper clamp by two supports. The main body features a dual lower frame, a rounded oil tank and a black leather seat, while the engine bay features a circular air filter and exhaust pipes on the right side, coming from each cylinder block, along with foot pegs for the passenger. The rear section features a rear fender with a pillion pad over it, circular tail lights on either side of the main frame and thin frames holding the rear fender. The chain drive and sprocket are seen on the left.

Standard versions are manufactured by Steel Horse, while custom variants are manufactured by either Liberty Chop Shop or Liberty City Cycles. The Zombie will also 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 dual gas caps. These will have different tribal paints on it and sometimes, skull decals. These gas tanks also alter the air filters on the bike, and the "double-capped" fuel tank adds a license plate, making the vehicle road-legal.
  • Dual exhaust tubes, dual exhaust tubes with a single end, and a variant of the latter angled slightly upward.
  • Lower transmission covers in a standard form, decorated with skull decals and basic covers with Liberty Chop Shop badges.
  • Rider's seat with or without skull decals.

The vehicle is set to spawn in a wide variety of primary colors for the fuel tank and rear fender, while the secondary color is applied on the front suspension forks, horizontal front frames, transmission cover, oil tank and wheels (which is always set to white). An additional color is applied onto the tires, which is always set on a white color (giving it the impression of whitewall tires). There is also a version that spawns in a full black color, as well as a red color on the tires (giving it the aspect of "Redwall" tires). The bike uses wired rims similar to the Freeway, with high-profile tires and wide track.

Grand Theft Auto Online

This article (or section) refers to content in the Enhanced version for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC release of Grand Theft Auto Online that may be absent from other versions.
For a complete list of the features of the Enhanced version for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC version of Grand Theft Auto Online, please see here.

The Zombie returns in Grand Theft Auto Online as the Zombie Chopper with 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, while the tribal markings are no longer available. Like most motorcycles featured in the same update, it has protruding primary drive with an Atomic-branded belt, as well as a chain drive, which are fully animated.

Because of the rearranges in the color sets, the Zombie Chopper features a more organized color scheme: the primary one applies one the fuel tank, oil tank and rear fender, while the secondary one applies on the bodywork frames and the front forks (leaving the previously colored suspension forks, horizontal frames and transmission cover set to a default steel appearance). A tertiary color remains applied on the tires (also set to a white color). The rims have the same design as in GTA IV, being a derivative of the "Bobber" rims available in Los Santos Customs, but can support a dedicated wheel color, which can be painted by selecting a custom rear wheel, applying a color and change back to the stock wheel (as it won't reset to the default alloy color). It uses the same high-profile tires as in GTA IV, but a groove is also added down the center of the circumference.

Grand Theft Auto IV

While able to reach a good top speed, the Zombie's handling is rather poor due to the oversized front tire, and the bike is susceptible to oversteer, which make cornering difficult with the increased sweep caused by the handle arms. It can only do wheelies from high revs, and by transferring weight to the back before taking off. Its speed and braking, however, are superior to most motorcycles in GTA IV, compensating for its flaws.

The engine is a chain-driven, V-twin internal combustion engine with a 5-speed manual transmission, as evidenced by the foot-actuated gear shifter. It shares the same engine sound with the Freeway.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Zombie Chopper is a very fast, nimble motorcycle for its style. Its large, heavy V-Twin engine still provides enough torque to keep it moving and even offers the vehicle a surprisingly high top speed, although the limited number of gears does appear to restrict the vehicle's potential, particularly evident by the red-line revs which are not flat in tone.

The Chopper's high steering bars provide decent steering capacity, and while not being as maneuverable as sports bikes, still gives the vehicle a massive advantage against cruiser motorcycles such as the Daemon and Nightblade. Moreover, the vehicle's suspension is some of the best motorcycle suspension in the game, giving the player a very smooth ride, making it much easier to use weapons against other players without trouble from the bike itself, and the relatively light body-weight makes the bike even easier to move around at both low and high speeds.

Again, the engine is a chain-driven, V-twin internal combustion engine with a 5-speed manual transmission, as evidenced by the foot-actuated gear shifter. The motorcycle shares the same engine sound as the Cliffhanger, being notably higher revving and higher pitched than the ones from the Nightblade and the Wolfsbane.

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

The Zombie Bobber in Grand Theft Auto Online.
(Rear quarter view)

The Zombie Bobber is a slimmed-down, bobber variant of the Zombie Chopper in GTA Online sporting a springer front end, flatter gas tank, and shorter rear fender.

Notable Owners

  • Motorcycle of choice for the The Lost Brotherhood in GTA IV.
  • Jim Fitzgerald will have a black Zombie with "Redwall" tires, black rims, black panelings and frame, a custom gas tank with custom pin striping, an oversized carburetor on the right side of the engine, and a repositioned jolly roger on the gas tank lid. While some details changes, the overall paintjob and the "Redwall" tires will be always there.
  • Lester Arnold
  • Jason Michaels


Grand Theft Auto IV

The Lost and Damned

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Can be purchased from Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $122,000.
    • If the player has purchased the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack, this vehicle will be available for FREE.



Grand Theft Auto IV

The Lost and Damned

  • The Lost paintjob can be sprayed on any Zombie in The Lost and Damned, but these do not have the modifications.
  • In The Lost and Damned, Zombies with custom paint jobs spawn more often than the plain-coloured version.
  • In the first mission of The Lost and Damned, Johnny, Jim and Billy interrogate 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 Online

  • Despite being a Western Motorcycle Company branded vehicle, the Steel Horse logo is visible on the "Chrome Billet Primary Cover" option, 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.
  • The "Cruiser Seat" option has its name mispelled as "Crusier Seat". The same applies to its bobber version.
