Also off-road/motorcycle classed like the dirty Sanchez?

Welcome to the brave new world."

"Ah, the age-old question: how do you get a cool vintage motorbike up a near-vertical hillside strewn with dust, rocks and the remains of lesser drivers? Forget carbon fiber panels and onboard computers. Sometimes a simple problem requires a simple solution, like a rear tire taken from an Armored Personnel Carrier and wrapped in steel chains. Time to get back to basics."

I felt like the Gargoyle should have been Steel Horse branded, and seeing the Indian Four makes me understand why. Lovin'the Gargoyle,and hope Rockstar sees our love for bikes (and please, Steel Horse bikes! The racing jacket included in Cunning Stunts was a massive welcome surprise).

The BF400 is massive fun. After garbage like the Lectro, Enduro and Thrust it's great to have a decent DLC bike.

 

And the Gargoyle is even better!

Is that true? If so, wow. Instead of putting the Sanchez finally in the right class, they repeat the mistake. Off-road racing will be even more fun now.

It's not based on this at all, it was in the other gta version (GTA SA) but not in gta online. It's based on an adventure/dakar/rally raid bike like the KTM 450 rally (and others). Honda CB400 is nothing special irl at all, just a beginnersbike (and too heavy). BF400 was my 1st buy in this update, love this thing. Big jumps :D

Really? Then all these comments are just the typical ''Honeymoon'' stage sh*t?

These people are acting like it's the best bike ever made....

Bati still has the best turning circle of top bikes. Gargoyle is faster in a straight line but can't really turn at those top speeds.

I thought the Gaygoyle would've been much slower because of the chains on the back wheel.

Although I disagree with the BF comparison, the gargoyle is right on. It's nice to have a classic bike in the game and the choice to have it off-road/suped up.

I love both. Spent an age just doing any sort of jump I could find in sandy shores with the BF.

I love both the bikes but the Gargoyle is epic. Beating lobbies full of Batty Bois in style.

 

FYI
 

Evel Knievel rode several brands of bikes during his career. He started-off on a 350cc Honda, switched to a 750cc Norton in 1966, then Triumph from 1966-1968, Laverda 750cc American Eagle from December 1969 to April 1970, and in December 1970 Harley-Davidson became Knievel’s sponsor and he began riding an XR-750– the bike he is most commonly associated with. Knievel has often said that his Triumph was by far the best bike he ever jumped with–[/size] “The Harley’s got a little too much torque when it comes to jumping,” according to him.

Yes, exactly that, plus the fact that all motorbikes are currently suffering from a major glitch (it comes and goes, for those who think it's not happening to them).  There's a push from the stunting community on Twitter (and other social media, but mainly there) to #savestunting.  People really need to not get too attached to things they can currently do on motorobikes that they couldn't do last week.

 

Both the new bikes are f*cking AWESOME but it's currently impossible to separate the bugs from reality.

Anti-fall is the main thing.  There's a ton of other issues that have been detailed by a guy called Vanilla, who's basically the Broughy of stunting.  He's the one that tries to understand the technical side of things, rather than the WEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! side of things.

 

Currently you'll be fluctuating (on any motorbike) between normal behaviour and not being able to fall off unless your character hits something  (as opposed to the bike hitting something).  When it's in effect you can ride full speed into a wall and you'll just bounce back a bit.  This also means that you can do stunt bumps off pretty much anything that's not too high, regardless of how you do it (including oncoming traffic).

 

It's only a minor thing really, as it's the anti-fall that is required for stunt races to work with motorbikes that has somehow spilled over into free roam.  I have zero doubt that it will be fixed soon.

It's the best dirt bike in the game, hands down, and the fastest offroad class vehicle in the game hands down.  It's not the best bike but offroaders will love it and for good reason.  It's not going to compete on asphalt with the top racing bikes (Bati, Hakochou, maybe now the Gargoyle).

First person on the gargoyle is intense!

On topic: so happy to have a replacement for the sanchez.

Off topic the vindicator is so much fun in the stunt races ď

Gridlok, i notice the strange antifall physics in freeroam and then they were gone. Any way to trigger that function in freemode?

Yeah there's no doubt that motorcycles are 100 times more enjoyable than cars. This bike is great, but I wish being a stunt bike it would flip a bit quicker than it does. I would like more motorbikes like this off-road one and one faster than the Akuma

Do a stunt race.  It usually lingers when you return to free roam (not guaranteed and it disappears at some point but I haven't figured out what triggers that, yet).
