Cabinet Information

There are two cabinet versions: the standard upright and a red or blue special edition with a large motorcycle to sit on. The upright has an actual motorcycle handlebar, throttle and break lever. The cabinet also has a simulated tachometer and speedometer.

The sit-down version lets you steer your bike by moving your weight left and right, but there are neither force feedback or mechanics in it. However, when making a turn, you can push down on the foot peg to make the bike turn faster.
