Motorcycle and Motorbike Games

Updated on October 2, 2010

Motorbike games have always been a popular past time for bikers. Ever since the original road rash (the 2D game on the 16 bit console era where you race against other motorcycles and bash each other off with weapons) they have been popular.

With recent consoles from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo such as the Nintendo Wii Black dropping prices, it is now possible to get a cheap PS3 or Xbox 360 so playing motorbike games has got more affordable allowing you to save your money for some real motorbike action when the weather is better!

      Hello BlackBike,

      This is informative. I know nothing about games, but that my son loves playing them. LOL.

      I want to get him PS 2 OR 3 hopefully this Christmas. This Hub had been helpful.

      Thanks for sharing.
