The Converted Moto-Terminator before being reprogrammed

The "Converted Moto-Terminator" was originally patrolling on the road somewhere nearby the Tech-Com base. It got attention of the sound from "You Could Be Mine" from a boombox placed in the middle of the road by John Connor.

The Moto-Terminator immediately headed for the source of the sound in high speed, only to meet an accident due to the trap set up by John Connor with a thick rope.

Upon seeing the Moto-Terminator downed, John quickly came to its side and grabbed it. The lone hero removed its optical sensor and used a tablet device sporting a wire interface to override its program successfully.


John Connor rides the Converted Moto-Terminator

John rode the Moto-Terminator to the ruin of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and possibly abandoned it there since the bridge was no longer structurally safe for any vehicle running on it.

Later, the Moto-Terminator's optical sensor was used by John Connor to access the control panel on a glass door in Skynet Central to penetrate deeper into the laboratory complex without triggering any security programs


  • In novelization, Barnes used his boombox alongside John Connor to capture and reprogram the Moto-Terminator.
