The PCJ-600's name is rendered PCJ 600 (unhyphenized) in GTA Vice City and GTA IV. In GTA IV, the PCJ 600 is manufactured by Shitzu.

Description

GTA Vice City — GTA Vice City Stories

The PCJ 600 between GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories is loosely resembles a Suzuki GSX600F Katana. In GTA Liberty City Stories, the bike receives a facelift that provides the vehicle with a more modernized appearance; it is worth noting, however, that the bike is depicted in its original form in earlier pre-release screenshots of the game.

Excluding the GTA San Andreas rendition, the PCJ 600 is the fastest bike; in Vice City and Vice City Stories, it tied with the Angel. Overall performance is exceptional, except in handling — high-speed impacts often result in being thrown from the bike, resulting in injury. In GTA San Andreas, the PCJ-600 is no longer the fastest bike, outpaced by the NRG-500 and FCR-900.

GTA IV

In GTA IV the PCJ 600 is designed as a streetfighter that strongly resembles a Triumph Speed Triple with elements of a Ducati Monster S4R. The color is either solid or split between the body and frame.

In GTA IV, the PCJ 600 is the second-fastest bike (after the NRG 900), but has superior handling this makes it easier to corner at high speeds where as on the NRG 900 you would have to slow down. Due to the time it takes an NRG 900 to attain its top speed, the PCJ can outrun the NRG in a Race if the PCJ rider leans forward. Both bikes have the same 0-60mph time of 4.4 seconds. The PCJ 600 appears to be powered by a 3 cylinder engine, possibly 600cc (hence the '600' in the name). The Bike has a very unique high-pitched wail that quickly distinguishes it from other bikes.

Variants with unique colors

The uniquely white/silver PCJ 600 obtainable from "Autocide" in GTA Vice City.
Silver PCJ 600

In the beginning of the mission Autocide, in GTA Vice City, the player is given a unique PCJ-600 along with a Micro-SMG, and a Sniper Rifle for his task of eliminating members of a European Gang whom were setting up a heist at a bank in Vice City. The PCJ-600 has a unique silver paintjob, but still maintains the same performance of the regular PCJ-600. Following the completion of failure or the mission the player can store it in a garage to keep it.

Red and gold PCJ 600

In GTA IV, a unique red and gold PCJ 600 can be acquired during "I Need Your Clothes, Your Boots, and Your Motorcycle", when the player uses it to kill Frank Garone in a chase. Regardless of whether or not the player fails or passes the mission, the player may store the bike after the mission is over. It can also be found commonly on the streets if the player drives a normal PCJ 600.

Trivia
