2003 was a transitional year for DreamWorks, which released six features that were modestly budgeted, but only Old School hit it big at the box office. Biker Boyz was their first release of the year and the $24 million film opened in the US in 1,766 theaters against The Recruit and Final Destination 2. The poorly reviewed film came within its modest expectations at $10,106,992 — placing #3 for the weekend led by The Recruit. It sank a huge 58.1% in its second weekend to $4,233,485 and Biker Boyz closed its theatrical run with $22,076,772. DreamWorks would see back about $12.1 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, which would not cover the P&A costs and leave the budget in the red. UIP (joint distribution between Universal and Paramount) released Biker Boyz in a few markets overseas, where it was mostly dumped. The film opened in 139 theaters in the UK and barely made a blip with a total of $220,408. The overseas cume was a small $1,433,829. Warner Bros delayed their similarly themed dud Torque into 2004 to distance it from Biker Boyz.
