The hunt for the rarest and most mysterious sports bike ever in a video game


For weeks I have sought for this sports motorcycle... there have been various clues scattered about, which I have collected here.

- There have been reported sightings of the Hakuchou in northern Alderney, such as areas near or around Alderney City and/or Westdyke. However, the only instance in which a person specifically remembers riding it and seeing the displayed name "Hakuchou", was on the downloadable version of the game.
- The Double T, a sports bike that, like the Hakuchou (supposedly), has returned from The Lost and the Damned, has been seen numerous times in areas in northern Alderney. I myself have seen it in Westdyke and Alderney City. It is possible that the Hakuchou appears in the same areas.
- Recent reports claim that a Hakuchou was seen south of The Triangle in Algonquin, while the player was driving a Super Drop Diamond. It is possible that the SDD triggers the "Fashion" or "Rich" groups of cars, which the Hakuchou is part of.
- According to the game's internal data and files, the Hakuchou is supposed to spawn in certain groups of vehicles, often in groups with the Double T or sports cars.
- The Hakuchou appeared in a pre-release schreenshot, where it is being used to jump off a building in a base jump. The Sanchez fills this roll in the final game.

In pink, reported sightings of the Hakuchou. In purple, confirmed sightings of the Double T.


Many people have doubted its existence, but I continue to believe there is a way.

If you can be of any help to my research, please don't be afraid to speak up.

Special thanks to...

And yes, I know, this is a stupid topic.

Actually, if you check the TBOGT vehicle list on gta4.net you'll see it under the bikes category,

QUOTE (mincemate003 @ Mar 21 2010, 01:04)
So, as the title says, I have been looking for a Hakuchou lately.... I heard that a few people had seen them in Alderny. However, I have been looking a lot, and I have yet to see one. I've tried driving NRG-900s and Bati Customs around, but never a Hakuchou. I read about some vehicle groups in an older topic, and tried driving vehicles from those groups, but never saw one..... so I am starting to wonder if it really is obtainable in BoGT. If there is anyone who has ever seen one, where did you see it, and do you remember what vehicle you were driving? I want one very bad....

CODE
patriot, pmp600, banshee, oracle, zombieb, akuma, coquette, serrano, huntley, Hakuchou, feltzer, habanero, hellfury, nrg900, landstalker, vader, cognoscenti, cavalcade, fxt, sentinel, f620, double,  # POPCYCLE_GROUP_FASHION
sultan, pmp600, cavalcade, feltzer, schafter, pmp600, vader, coquette, oracle, turismo, supergt, Hakuchou, serrano, comet, banshee, f620, bullet, infernus, superd, buffalo,  # POPCYCLE_GROUP_SHOPPING_RICH

According to the Cargrop, it should go out but if you notice, in these groups, there are cars so difficult to obtain like cognoscenti or superGT.
Patiently it is sure that you find it. It proves to drive any of the cars that exists in the list and to see if in some cycle of appearance of cars it goes out

Yeah, originally I tried driving an NRG around, and I saw Bullet GTs, Super GTs, and a bunch of other cars from those lists. I kept reloading the game, thinking it might eventually make a Hakuchou appear, but I never saw one. I might try driving a Cognoscenti around and see if I see one eventually, because its rarer.

By the way, I noticed that when I was driving around the Bati Custom, I saw lots of random cars, and some people say they see double Ts. How does it know what cars to spawn if its not in a group?

On not having been for zones, for example Group Bronx, it(he) is more difficult and random. I imagine that the Group of Rich or of Fashion, moves for certain sites(places) of the city as the major crossing

The translator was a bit dodgy on that one so, I'll make it a bit better.

"On the lack of spawn points, for example in Bohan, it is more difficult and random. I imagine that the Rich People, moves for certain districts of the city and Bohan is an easier way to get across."

I hope thats better. Translators aren't perfect which is annoying. mad.gif

Now I do not understand it completely when I it translate to the Spanish...
Though I believe that it is it what I want to say, it is not the same groups for zones of the map that groups for type of people.
Thank you

Drat. I still have no luck finding one.

My question is, has anyone ever even seen one? The Akuma is placed in groups, and yet it never spawns, so is it the same for the Hakuchou?

I tried driving a Double T around, but no luck. I noticed that driving an Infernus made Vaders spawn. Maybe there is a lucky car for the Hakuchou.....

I believe you, but that really makes me mad... why can't I find one? sad.gif

Maybe I should try those areas you said instead of just driving around Alderney City. After all, when I saw the Double T a few days ago (and was sure to grab one) it was next to that helipad in the yard in Westdyke.

And of course, once I find one, I will make sure I NEVER lose it. Haha.....

I thought I saw one in Alderney once but in retrospect I probably never did bacause I never saw one since and I played a lot since. I've never seen the Akuma spawn either.

If I were you I would stop caring. Just go play TLAD if you want a Hakuchou. I actually think the Hakuchou is pretty ugly anyway.

I once had the gamefiles but I lost them. Maybe you can look if the Hakuchou is in the handling.dat. If it isn't then it's not ingame.

Yeah, I suppose you're right... killer6699, you probably saw a Double T or an NRG-900 or something. Same for floris. I guess it just isn't in BoGT at all, like the Akuma... so I can stop having to turn around all the time and checking the bike that just drove past me smile.gif.

But hey, I don't need the Hakuchou! I found me a new favorite bike... the VADER! It's AWESOME!

Really? Then the hunt continues! lol.gif

But that is strange how I've practically seen every car in the game at least once (except maybe a Willard) except for the Hakuchou. I've seen the Vader and Double T plenty of times, so why no Hakuchou? I wonder if I could e-mail Rockstar Games and ask them... that would be kinda weird, but still. I MUST HAVE IT!!!!!

killer6699, do you play on EFLC or the DLC version?

Naah, I've done 70+ drug wars and never saw a Hakuchou. Never saw any type of bike at all.

I'm gonna start crying if I don't find one cryani.gif.

at Killer- I asked because there are a few minor differences between the versions, and I was thinking maybe the lack of the Hakuchou was one.

I'm curious as to how the Hakuchou, and even the Akuma, are in car spawn groups, but yet most people have never seen them. However, killer, you say you saw a Hakuchou once.... I guess that there IS a chance for one to spawn on the streets, maybe even an Akuma, but it is just extremely rare... I wish I could look at the files for the car spawns.

Have you tried it in multiplayer? because rare vehicles spawn a lot more in multiplayer.

I don't have gold. Besides, I want it in single-player.

I kinda want to e-mail R* and ask about it, but they are such arses they probably won't take me seriously.

EDIT - Updated first post. This is no longer a game.

You saw it while driving around a Super Drop Diamond? Thank you for the info.

Crossing stars? The translator isn't very good. If you like, you can type it in Spanish and I'll try to use my own translator.

I think he just somehow spawned it with mods.

I can't imagine it's out there since I have done pretty much everything in this game except for seagulls.
