After teasing us with a brief announcement trailer and a handful of licensed bike reveals, the first in-game screenshots of Milestone's upcoming new bike racing IP Ride have finally been revealed, showcasing the Ducati 1199 Superleggera in all its detailed glory.
The Ducati 1199 Superleggera is touted as "the most extreme street bike ever created", boasting the best power-to-weight ratio in the history of production motorcycles. Indeed, its specifications are comparable to Ducatis that compete on the Superbike World Championship, Fun fact: only 500 were produced, each donning a unique serial number engraved on the steering head.
Like MotoGP '14, the bikes have been modeled with astute attention to detail, but we hope Milestone has endeavored to improve the environmental detail and atmosphere as well this time round. Compared to the bike models, the environments look a tad uninspired, but there's still plenty of time to rectify this.
As Milestone continue to reveal more bikes in the run-up to its release next Spring, we suspect the obligatory in-game lap video is around the corner which should allow us to pass a more informed judgement – particularly as we have yet to see any official gameplay footage yet apart from a haphazard stage demo which didn't do Ride much justice.
