Videogame Riding Away Winter's Biker Blues

As the colder weather moves across the nation, bikers may find their motorcycles spending more time in the garage than on the road. A new record-breaking videogame may blow away the biker blues.

Released earlier this month 'Ride 2' features more than 190 bikes. These include everything from two-stroke classics, café racers and the latest sportsbikes. Through the magic of video games, bikers can travel around the world riding GP racing circuits, country and city tracks. Riders looking for casual fun can cruise through the games sixteen different game modes.

Over 30 tracks are featured including the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife. The game allows players to customize its looks as well as tweaking the engine brakes, suspension and transmission.

Just to show how many motorcycles the game’s developers have squeezed into the game, Guinness World Records recently awarded ‘Ride 2’ with the ‘Most licensed bikes in a videogame’.

“We are really proud to be recognized for such an important award. This year represent Milestone’s 20th Anniversary since our first release and this Guinness World Records achievement is the best way to head to our 30th Anniversary, ” said Luisa Bixio, CEO of Milestone, the developer of Ride 2.

As we all know, it’s not necessarily quantity that turns riders on but quality. Each bike model boasts an unrivalled level of precision, the vast roster of bikes includes models for major manufacturers such as Yamaha, Kawasaki, Ducati, Aprilia, BMW, Suzuki, Triumph and much more.

“The racing genre has often strived for realism and authenticity, so it’s great to see a motorcycle game delivering some serious options for two-wheel enthusiasts,” notes Stephen Daultrey, Editor of The Guinness World Record Gamers Edition. ”Having just launched our Guinness World Records 2017 Gamer’s Edition, there’s every chance now that Ride2 could be haring into next year’s book.”

Ride 2 rode out on the 7th of October 2016 on PS4 and Xbox One as well as Steam for PC’s.
