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

The bike is used during Case 2-2: Ticket to Ride, where Chuck knocks a mercenary off of the bike and chases TK's train with it. Upon completion of the case, the mercenary bike spawns in Warehouse E in the Underground, below the Palisades Mall, and can be driven throughout the underground. The bike respawns each time the area is reloaded.

During Case 2-2: Ticket to Ride, the bike has unlimited durability. Outside of the mission, the bike can kill up to 200 zombies before breaking, unless the player crashes, in which case the possible kill count is lowered. Its durability can be increased with the Bikes magazine.

After Case 6-1: Help Arrives, a route from the underground tunnels to the Silver Strip becomes available, and the player is able to drive the bike around the outdoor areas. Despite its similar appearance to the dirtbike, it cannot be modified in the Combo Bay (see video below).
