A Sanchez in GTA Vice City.

The Sanchez is a dirtbike/dual sport featured in the following games:

It is the only dirtbike in the series, excluding its variant, the Manchez, in GTA Liberty City Stories.


The Sanchez, with its soft suspension, high ground clearance and very light weight is useful for stunt biking and offroad applications, but sacrifices speed (being slower than a PCJ-600). They can be found on the streets of suburban or rural areas, and is also sometimes used in the Stadium(s) in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, as part of side-missions. In GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories, the Sanchez assumes the design of an older dirtbike model, complete with a large round headlight. The GTA San Andreas and GTA IV renditions feature more modernized design cues, giving the bike a sportier appearance; this Sanchez may be based on the Yamaha YZ450, indicated by the "GP-450"-sign at the back, meaning the engine displacement should be around 450cc.

Though its appearance remains unchanged in GTA IV (apart from its newer 4 stroke engine sound), it is still best suited for off-roading. Like all bikes in GTA IV's single player mode, the Sanchez must be driven with particular caution in traffic to avoid severe injury as the player may easily be dismounted.


Black Sanchez

A Black Sanchez commonly found in a "Trial by Dirt" sub-mission

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City the three Black Sanchez dirt bikes appeared in the side mission "Trial By Dirt". While the player races around the dirt track with the Sanchez, Three black Sanchez dirt bikes chase the player. Rather than use guns, the Haitian riders wield Machetes, but are relatively easy to kill. These bikes appear around half way around the first lap, though obtaining one of these bikes is easy if the player waits on the spot upon beginning the mission. The player can then prepare for the arrival of the Haitians. The Black Sanchez's speed and handling are the same as its normally-colored counterparts. A similar black Sanchez may also be found in a mission in the episodic content The Ballad of Gay Tony for Grand Theft Auto IV, as listed below.


The Manchez, featured in GTA Liberty City Stories, serves as an improved variant of the Sanchez with a rugged exterior and superior performance.


  • The GTA IV rendition of the Sanchez features model number "GP-450" over its rear fender, similar in format to the names of other sportsbikes in the GTA series (including the PCJ-600, BF-400, HPV-1000, FCR-900, NRG-500 and NRG 900).
  • The GTA IV rendition also features Terroil decals on the front suspension fork, suggesting that Terroil manufactured them.
  • In GTA IV, the two default radio stations in the Sanchez are Electro-Choc and Radio Broker.
  • In the beta version of GTA San Andreas, the Sanchez had the same design as GTA Vice City's Sanchez.[1]
  • A "Dirty Sanchez" is a slang term for a sex act associated with coprophilia.
  • In perfect condition this motorcycle can be sold in the S&M Auto Sales for $1,200
