You’ve probably heard them tearing up and down your street, ridden by next door-but-one’s feral kids. 2-stroke motorbikes are some of the most fun and most nimble of the motorbike vehicle group, and after mounting fan pressure, they’re finally coming to MXGP3: The Official Motocross Videogame.

Developed by one of the leading and longest established racing game developers, Milestone, MXGP3 has opened pre-orders and they have also announced a release date for the game.

Along with the 18 official tracks from the Motocross Championship, MXGP3 will offer 10 2-stroke motorbikes to blast around those very tracks. The game will feature unpredictable, dynamic weather conditions to make racing just that little bit more than real. From hot, beating sun to torrential heavy rain, every change should decisively influence the rider’s visibility and the highly changeable track terrain. This should put even the most skilled rider to the test.

Add to this, the unmistakeable sound of the 2-stroke engine, and you should have the sweetest recipe for success.

These newly announced 2-strokes will be available for all the game modes in MXGP3 and have been designed in-game for ultimate physical reality and realism. The following bikes will feature on the 2-stroke all-stars list in game.

  • KTM 250 SX
  • KTM 125 SX
  • Husqvarna TC 250
  • Husqvarna TC 125
  • Honda CR250R
  • TM MX 250
  • TM MX 125
  • Yamaha YZ250

  • Kawasaki KX 125
