We get to grips with the recently released Driveclub Bikes expansion and have a play around with the KTM RC8 R.
First we test if we can throw the rider off of the bike and after much playing around with the front and rear brakes and weaving around like crazy it becomes very clear that Evolution Studios have not included an animation of the rider falling off of the bike.
After some donuts we then turn our attention to the crash physics which we found to be very forgiving. You can take a reasonably big bump against the tracks perimeter and simply bounce off. We found that you really only trigger a reset should you hit the edges of the track head on.
Overall we feel the bikes are a great addition to Driveclub and are more accessible and forgiving than the four-wheeled counterparts. We'll have more Driveclub bikes action coming shortly for now check out our handling test video below.
