The Western Motorcycle Company Revenant is a chopper style cruiser motorcycle in The Lost and Damned episodic game for Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

Design

Similar to aHarley-Davidson V-Rod, the Revenant is designed as a modern chopper distinguished by a stocky and sleek body design, as well as "dish" rims (a feature exclusive only to the bike, similar to the V-Rod).

The Revenant is one of multiple choppers that is in fact available in GTA IV's game files, normally unavailable unless modding is involved. Being a pre-release element, the "beta" Revenant sports various cosmetic differences, including the inclusion of a small fairing and rear suspensions which are omitted in the TLAD version.

Performance

While still retaining the same heavy weight as other choppers, the Revenant is the fastest chopper available, with a top speed of 135 kph/83 mph and above average acceleration (matching the raw stats of the Bati 800, Double T and Hakuchou). The bike also possesses good grip and brake response, but has below average steering response (occasionally requiring no throttle to be applied to corner properly).

Prominent appearances

In TLAD, the Revenant is intended to be the signature bike which The Lost Brotherhood President Billy Grey owns and rides throughout much of his appearances. During "Clean and Serene", it is revealed that his bike has ended up in the hands of The Angels of Death while he was in rehabilitation, prompting Billy to retrieve his bike by force soon after he was released. The same mission also revealed Johnny Klebitz and Angus Martin built the bike for Billy, contrary to the idea the bike was manufactured (by the Western Motorcycle Company). Exclusive only to Billy Gray, the bike is not ridden by other members of The Lost, although the player can see Johnny being escorted by two Lost bikers on Revenants in a credits sequence of TLAD.

Following "This Shit's Cursed", the bike becomes available to the player via Clay Simons, when the player can contact him for delivery of the bike to the player.

Trivia

  • The Revenant plays Liberty Rock Radio 97.8 by default when entered.
  • Even though it is used by Billy, in TLAD multiplayer races, it is listed under Angel of Death bikes.
