The Brennan Apollo is a reliable bike in Cyberpunk 2077.

The Brennan Apollo might not be the fastest and the most good-looking bike in Cyberpunk 2077, but it is quite resourceful. This futuristic vehicle looks like a pizza-delivery motorbike but can get through tight spaces and has great acceleration. In addition, the storage container on the back makes it easy for you to access your inventory stash anytime you want.

You can buy the Brennan Apollo from Sebastian Ibarra for 30,000 Eurodollars once you have a Street Cred value of 30.

5. Arch Nazaré

The Arch Nazaré is one of the most beautiful motorbikes in Cyberpunk 2077, sporting a sleek and stylish design that blends perfectly with the vibe of Night City. This bike is incredibly fast, and its aesthetically pleasing look makes it worth picking up as a ride.

However, the Arch Nazaré doesn’t become available until much later in the game and ends up being priced at 71,000 Eurodollars. At this price point, it is better to use some of the free motorbike options which can be earned as mission rewards later in the game.

You can buy the Arch Nazaré from Wakako Okada once you have a Street Cred value of 40.

4. Brennan Apollo “Scorpion”

The Brennan Apollo “Scorpion” is a custom-made bike named after its owner. You can try this motorbike out during the “Life During Wartime” main quest, as you get to participate in a high-speed chase during the mission. You’ll get to keep the bike after the quest. While the Scorpion has the same speed as the Brennan Apollo, it differs from the former due to its offroad capabilities, thereby making it much more efficient.

3. Yaiba Kusanagi CT-3X

The CT-3X bears a resemblance to Shotaro Kaneda’s bike from the manga and anime film Akira.

While Cyberpunk 2077 has already paid homage to its anime fanbase in the form of the Edgerunners anime series, it seems that it is taking it a step further by introducing a bike built around the genre in the game. The Yaiba Kusanagi CT-3X is the go-to bike for any anime-lover playing Cyberpunk 2077. In addition to its cool design and color scheme, it also happens to be the fastest motorbike in the game, clocking in a staggering top speed of 189 mph.

You can buy the Yaiba Kusanagi CT-3X from Wakako Okada for 58,000 Eurodollars once you have a Street Cred value of 12.

2. Arch Itsumade

The Arch Itsumade is a pretty standard vehicle on the streets, as members of the Tyger Claw gang use them to get around the city. You can get these sleek and shiny motorbikes by taking out gang members anytime, thereby acquiring them for free. However, you can also get it as a reward for the “The Highwayman” quest. With a top speed of 178 mph, this Arch model is the same as the Nazaré in terms of performance, but its looks and design place it higher on this list.

1. Yaiba Kusanagi Tyger Claw Custom – The best bike in Cyberpunk 2077

One cannot buy the Yaiba Kusanagi Tyger Claw Custom.

Although it looks a little familiar to the CT-3X by Yaiba, the Yaiba Kusanagi, customized by the Tyger Claw gang, will not disappoint you when you take it on the roads of Night City. With a backrest that can be spotted from a mile away to its 183 horsepower engine, the Kusanagi Tyger Claw Custom is easily the best bike in Cyberpunk 2077. And to get it, you have no other option than stealing one from the Tyger Claw gang itself.
