GTA 5 Online: New fastest, unreleased DLC bikes revealed - Which one will you buy? Rockstar Games

Popular YouTuber and GTA tipster MrBossFTW (aka Ross) has revealed the speed-comparison test in his latest gameplay video for all the unreleased DLC bikes in GTA Online. The YouTuber reports that some game files pertaining to a couple of unreleased motorcycles were recently found hidden in the Biker update files, wherein he could use this data to verify the fastest bike in the game.

As these unreleased bikes are likely to be used in Motorcyle races, it is imperative to know their key performance stats such as acceleration, top speed, breaking and handling, so that the gamers can save some money ahead of the upcoming DLC releases in GTA Online.

Shotaro vs Hakuchou Drag - Speed comparison test

Shotaro is the first of the two unreleased bikes that has been tested by Ross in his newest gameplay video for GTA Online. As Ross explains, the Shotaro is being compared with Hakuchou Drag, which is touted to be the fastest bike in the game.

The speed test confirms that the Shotaro has slightly better acceleration than the Hakuchou Drag, while the latter apparently has a greater top speed as it was able to nudge past the Shotaro during the final moments of the race.

As this race was done on a straight line at the Airport runway, the Hakuchou has a slight advantage over the Shotaro, given its superior top speed.

However, on a shorter race track spanning less than 400m, the Shotaro holds the edge over the Hakuchou due to its faster acceleration.

Consequently, the Shotaro is the fastest bike in the game especially on circuit races. On the other hand, the Hakuchou Drag will be your best bet in drag races or sprint trials where top speed could decide the outcome.

However, Shotaro will also be the most-expensive bike in the game with a selling price of around $2.3 million. Besides, the TRON-styled light-outfits are rumoured to cost around $200,000 each with around 8 to 11 colours to choose from.

If you opt to buy all the 11 customisable colours for the light-outfits, you will be poorer by another $2 million. So, the entire cost of the bike and its upgrades will easily go up to $4.5 to $5 million.

Shotaro vs Pegassi Bati 801

The Shotaro once again comes out on top, as the Bati 801 poses no threat due to its lower acceleration and top speed. The Bati 801 is also slower than the Hakuchou and does not qualify as the challenger to the new unreleased superbikes in the game.

To be precise, the Bati 801 finishes the drag race on the Airport runway almost three to four seconds behind the Shotaro.

Shotaro vs Vortex

The Vortex ends up just a couple of seconds slower than the Shotaro in the drag race and could definitely be a stiff competitor in tight circuit races where breaking and handling could also make the difference in the outcome.

Shotaro vs Pegassi Esskey

The Esskey seems way too slower than the Shotaro and the former does not pose any threat to the reigning champion of motorcycle races. In other words, the Esskey is easily four to five seconds slower than the Shotaro in the drag race or sprint.

The Esskey is reportedly slower than the Bati 801 too and hence the former can only be used for bike shows with a lot of customisation options.

Shotaro vs Hakuchou vs Vortex vs Bati 801 and Esskey

In the final drag-race, here are the standings based on the race completion timings:

  • Shotaro
  • Hakuchou Drag
  • Vortex
  • Pegassi Bati 801
  • Pegassi Esskey

Shotaro aka TRON bike vs Halloween Bike aka Sanctus

The Sanctus aka Halloween Bike struggles with its extremely-slow acceleration due to its heavy frame, but it catches up with the Shotaro in the ending stages of the race, owing its incredible top speed.

However, the final result still stands in favour of the TRON bike as the Halloween Bike finishes almost two seconds slower than the Shotaro.

Besides its classy and cool looks, the Sanctus could come in handy in sprint trials and drag races wherein its great top-speeds could give you some edge over slower bikes.

Shotaro vs Western Daemon

The Western Daemon is by far the slowest bike in the game and the Shotaro takes the pole position with consistent performance across all the drag races conducted by Ross.

So, here are the final standings of the speed comparison test for all the bikes in this competition:

  • Shotaro
  • Hakuchou Drag
  • Vortex
  • Pegassi Bati 801
  • Pegassi Esskey
  • Halloween Sanctus
  • Western Daemon
