Motorcycles in Video Games: Cyberpunk 2077


Unchecked corporate overreach, advanced technology, and violence around every corner make Cyberpunk 2077 an exciting world to ride a motorcycle in.

Cyberpunk 2077 is the latest and most controversial game release in years. There have been countless reviews and summaries of the issues surrounding this game, but this post is about the bikes. In the game there are several types of motorcycles, and they are often owned by gang members who have their own modifications, such as Bosozoku style seats, extra luggage, etc. There are also several bikes you can own, and can summon to you wherever you are (a feature we would really like in real life). Below I'll break down each bike with plenty of photos.


Yaiba Kusanagi CT-3X - Top Speed 179 mph, 183 HP
This bike is the fastest in the game, and one you can get fairly early on. It is clearly modeled after Kaneda's bike in the Manga and 1988 Anime film Akira. The version you can own is red and has stickers all over it, but there are other versions in the game that are much cleaner looking.








Arch Nazare - Top Speed 178 mph, 170 HP
Based on a concept by Keanu Reeves' real life company Arch Motorcycle, this bike is the first one you'll get to own in the game. You can find them all over the game world, modified mostly in cafe racer or Bosozoku style and a variety of colors.


















Brennan Apollo - Top Speed 137 mph, 94 HP
THE dual-sport bike in the game. These are rarely found in the city, but are commonly used by the Nomads living out in the badlands. There are even some with hard luggage mounted all over, including on the front forks.


















Other - I have been unable to find any info on these bikes, not even a name. But they are used everywhere by gang members and come in all kinds of styles. They do not have gauges, and seem like a lower end bike in the game universe.
























Regardless of what you think of the game or the setting, there are some beautiful bikes available, and I had a great time playing through this world.
