For the Case Zero bike, see Motorbike.

The dirtbike is a vehicle in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

There are two dirtbikes that the player can drive: a red dirtbike that stands in front of the Fortune City Arena that is unlocked upon starting the mission Meet the Contestants, and a green dirtbike that is found in the Combo Bay on the north end of the Silver Strip that is unlocked after defeating Leon Bell.

The dirtbike can kill up to 250 zombies before breaking, unless the player crashes, in which case the possible kill count is lowered. It can be combined with various weapons to create many different combo bikes, or with spray paint to change its appearance. Its durability can be increased with the Bikes magazine.
