As if it wasn’t cool enough that Cyberpunk 2077 will feature Keanu Reeves, we will be seeing him riding around in a brand-new, custom motorcycle.
Developer CD Projekt Red revealed that Reeves’ side project on Cyberpunk 2077, in the latest episode of Night City Wire. Reeves spent his time designing some of the vehicles used in the vast open-world game. The actor enlisted the help of his brand, Arch Motorcycles, to design the motorcycle specifically for the futuristic world of Cyberpunk 2077.
Reeves and Arch Motorcycles co-founder Gard Hollinger showcased an ultra-futuristic and stunning piece of two-wheeler machinery that we can’t wait to get our hands on in the game.

“When CD Projekt Red approached me about doing Cyberpunk 2077, they also spoke about integrating – well, people who worked at the company were fans of Arch Motorcycle, and so they broached the idea of creating a specialised, Cyberpunk 2077 version of the Arch Motorcycle,” Reeves explains. “And I thought that was a very fine idea.”
According to the video, the custom motorcycle sports the signature Cyberpunk yellow and black colour-scheme, with ‘Arch’ prominently displayed on the forks in white lettering. While the bike is clearly, heavily inspired by Arch’s Method 143 model, the motorcycle in the game seems to be called the ‘Nazare Infinite.’

The Cyberpunk team took special care to maintain their attention to detail. CD Projekt Red’s sound design team traveled to Arch Motorcycles’ headquarters in Hawthorne, California, to capture the sounds for the bike to be used in the game.
“We’re getting some actual sounds of the power plant, the drive train, the characteristics of the motorcycle, which I’m sure they’ll have played with and stuff,” Reeves says, standing beside an asphalt runway strip in a oily red cap and T-shirt. “But the source will be pure.”
Cyberpunk 2077 launches on November 19 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
