GTA Online's Festive Surprise has brought the New Year weekly update today, adding a brand new motorcycle called Western Powersurge alongside many new rewards and bonuses. The event is going to run for one week, until January 5, 2023.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase everything you need to know about GTA Online's new year update.

1. About Western Powersurge

The electric Western PowerSurge is now available from the Legendary Motorsport website for $1,605,000. It is the first drip feed vehicle for GTA Online Los Santos Drug Wars - the bike was heavily inspired by the real-life 2019 Harley-Davidson LiveWire.

It is customizable and can be stored in any garage as a personal vehicle. Performance-wise, this sports bike runs on an RWD drivetrain, with a top speed of 79.66 mph (128.20 km/h). This is rather low for a motorbike, which contradicts its high price - a cheap Bati can go faster at 1/10 the cost.

Being an electric vehicle, the engine sounds of the Western PowerSurge are also pretty weak and bad. At least it is easy to handle, with decent acceleration and control.

2. GTA Online Fooligan Jobs

A lot of free rewards have been added to Fooligan Jobs in GTA Online for the next two weeks - players can complete the missions a number of times to get these new items.
