Lesquin, 14 April 2021 - NACON and RaceWard Studio are pleased to unveil a new video for RiMS Racing, a motorcycling video game with a unique concept of combining mechanics and riding. Because the race is not won purely on the track! NACON who has become a key player in racing games publishing over the last few years will make one more announcement in the upcoming days.  



By making mechanics a central part of the game, RiMS Racing provides a unique simulation experience requiring engineering and riding skills. Using an innovative mechanics management system, you can optimise every part of your bike down to the smallest component. With over 500 official spare parts available and more than 200 official equipment items for the rider, RiMS Racing sets a new standard for customisation options.

Just like a real rider, you can analyse the behaviour of your motorcycle in real time to optimise your set-up. From brake disc temperature and tyre pressure to suspension behaviour and electronics, the ultra-realistic and precise physics of RiMS Racing recreates every hazard of the race.

You start your adventure by choosing a motorcycle from eight of the most powerful European and Japanese models, recreated with unparalleled accuracy thanks to tight collaboration with the manufacturers. The video features the MV Agusta F4 RC and its precision mechanics. This four-cylinder bike with over 200 horsepower is MV Agusta's flagship model and is fitted with an Ohlins TTX 36 shock absorber, Brembo radial braking system and fairing made primarily of carbon. All these components are reproduced in the finest detail in RiMS Racing.

 

Another iconic motorcycle that players will love riding is the Ducati Panigale V4 R. With this masterpiece from Ducati, the Italian manufacturer of sport-inspired motorcycles characterised by high-performance engines, innovative design and cutting-edge technology, every detail has been designed specifically for racing: aerodynamics, the chassis, performance, even the mesmerising sound of its engine.

Silverstone Circuit, WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, Suzuka Circuit, Nürburgring GP Track, Circuit Paul Ricard… Travel the world and enjoy thrilling races on 10 faithfully recreated official circuits. For those who prefer roads, five routes in the stunning landscapes of the United States, Norway, Australia, Spain and Italy have been recreated for a different racing experience on two wheels!
 
RiMS Racing will be available on 19 August 2021 on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC and on Nintendo Switch™.
