The Hakuchou is a sports bike in GTA V, manufactured by Shitzu. It belongs to the Motorcycles vehicle class in the game and can be found ridden around by NPCs mostly in Los Santos. It was added to the game as part of the Last Team Standing DLC Update.

The design of the Hakuchou in GTA V is heavily based on the Suzuki Hayabusa, with additional inspiration from the Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird. Its aerodynamic profile sets it apart from other bikes like the Bati 800 and Double T. The front section features a large mudguard, a triangular-shaped headlamp, and a long glass visor.
The fairing houses two analogue dials and incorporates carbon fiber accents. The rear area includes a black seat, a small red tail lamp, and a plate holder. The bike's color distribution consists of a primary color on the front mudguard, fairing, fuel tank, and rear section, while a secondary color highlights specific areas like the lower fairing and rims.
The Hakuchou is a powerful motorcycle with a solid build and a strong engine. It surpasses the Bati 801 in terms of power and features a longer wheelbase than other sport bikes. While it may appear sturdy, it has the same crash resistance as lighter bikes, which can be misleading for inexperienced riders. Its top speed is impressive and can compete with the Akuma and surpass the Bati 801 on straightaways.
Performing wheelies at top speed can further enhance its velocity. However, its handling is a drawback due to its long wheelbase, resulting in a wide turning circle and sluggish response when turning.
Despite this, the Hakuchou excels in speed and is suitable for highway riding or those prioritizing straight line power. It shares its engine sound with the Akuma and Double T.

This vehicle does not appear in any missions of GTA V.
Sometimes can be found at Vespucci Beach, near Floyd's Apartment.
Can be seen ridden in traffic by NPCs.
Hakuchou, or はくちょう when written in Hiragana, can also be spelled 白鳥 in Kanji, meaning "swan", reflecting Hayabusa's Kanji 隼, which translates to "peregrine falcon".
The brake discs do not spin as the wheels are moving, much like the Thrust and Innovation. This is most likely a developer oversight.
In The Lost and Damned, Johnny Klebitz humorously mispronounces the name of the bike, calling it "Ha-ha-coochie-koo" after one of Angus' Bike Thefts.
