Grand Theft Auto Online has received its first update for 2017, which includes a new motorcycle and Adversary Mode.
To kick off 2017, Grand Theft Auto Online players can now pick up a brand new motorcycle, the customizable Pegassi FCR 1000. The latest update also includes a new Adversary Mode, Vehicle Vendetta.

- Beast: Automatically transforms you into a Rhino Tank.
- Detonator: Removes obstacles and objects from the arena.
- Bomb: Place up to three bombs around the map to destroy trailing enemies.
- Rockets: Fire rockets at oncoming drivers to incapacitate them.
- Repair: Returns vehicle back to max health.
- Ghost: Become translucent, allowing you to drive through enemy vehicles to steal their power-ups.
- Jammed: Forces the accelerator on for the enemy team’s vehicles.
- Flipped: Reverses the enemy team’s steering, acceleration, and braking controls.
- Zoned: Slows down time for all players.
