A BMX in GTA San Andreas.

The BMX is a bicycle in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories; it is the only bicycle in the latter.

Design

The BMX is, as implied, a BMX bike sporting compact frame and wheels, and a sturdy handlebar. While the GTA San Andreas rendition consists only of the bare essentials, the GTA Vice City Stories rendition comes with padding on portions of the frame; GTA Vice City Stories even features a girly variation of the BMX, which features a step-through frame (as opposed to a diamond frame), a pink frame color and a front mounted basket. The GTA Vice City Stories rendition features larger wheels and higher handlebars, appearing larger than the GTA San Andreas rendition.

Performance

One of the BMX's major advantages is its maneuverability. In addition to its compact size, the BMX also allows the player to execute super high bunny-hops along with the standard fare of wheelies and stoppies. In GTA: Vice City Stories, the bunny hop is short and you cannot jump high.

The BMX's top speed, however, is wedged between that of the Bike and the Mountain Bike, and is not considerably fast as a result. The BMX is also unintended for off-road use, as the player is prone to dismounts from the bike and the resulting injuries; neither is it suited for getaways when pursued by cops.

Trivia

  • The GTA San Andreas rendition features a ringing bell in place of a horn, but the GTA Vice City Stories lacks any of these equipment.
  • Like other bicycles and trains (the Brown Streak and Freight), the BMX vehicle is indestructible. It is, however, worth noting that the BMX, like any other bicycle in GTA San Andreas, can burst into flames if the bike ends up resting upside down. This is probably a designer oversight, because the task of getting a bicycle upside down is next to impossible.

Locations

The BMX can be seen ridden by pedestrians or spawned in specific locations in GTA San Andreas; in GTA Vice City Stories, however, it only has spawn points and never used by anybody in the game bar the main character.
