A Double T in The Lost and Damned.

The Double T is a new bike in The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony for Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

The bike is most likely based on a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R. The Double T is probably the slowest of all six new street bikes, being slower than the Hakuchou. The Double T can be found around parts of Northwood, driven by the Uptown Riders, and available to obtain by calling Clay, although after a certain mission.

The Double T Custom is a more powerful variant of the Double T with a bit different model and vinyls. The custom version is considerably more stylish and faster.

The Double T does reappear in The Ballad of Gay Tony but can only be found in Alderney, but most common in Alderney City.

Performance

The Double T is more of an 'all show and no go' bike, but has some potential in The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. Its acceleration is anything but fun; due to its sluggish first and second gears. Its top speed, however, is pretty strong for a bike its size, so don't let the acceleration get the best of you. Once you're up and running on a long stretch of road, you can get to your destination quick and painless. Its handling is great as well; the bike's design makes cornering, wheelies, and endos a breeze. But because of its poor, high-revving low gears, this bike isn't the best choice for getaways since a cop could easily drag you off it at mid first gear. Other than that, the bike can easily beat its competition in races.

Trivia

  • Like many other vehicles in the GTA universe, the name "Double T" has got indecent value. If you read Double T like TT, it sounds like the word "tittie", a slang name for a woman's breats.
  • The Double T is one of the very few bikes in the GTA series with thick-walled tires. Another being the Zombie.
  • When the player calls Clay to order a Double T, Johny refers to it just as a "Double".
