Description

The HPV-1000 is a police motorcycle ridden by San Andreas Police Department police bikers. It is very fast and agile (below higher end models such as the FCR-900 and NRG-500), although the player can fall off easily if they have minimal "bike skill". Unless the Rhino or Hunter is available, this bike is a good choice for completing the Vigilante side mission - mainly because the player can fire a submachine gun straight ahead, allowing them to take out the opponent easily. Although its siren is no longer effective in prompting oncoming vehicles to move out of the way, its compact motorcycle design allows it to navigate around traffic far better than full-sized cars.

The HPV-1000 assumes is a unique model that isn't shared by another motorcycle, and bears resemblance to a police Kawasaki KZ1000. The name may be a reference to the human papillomavirus (HPV).
