Description

Kawasaki Superbike Challenge is a motorcycle racing game that uses the same engine as F1. It includes 14 standard-length race tracks, plus the Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race, available in both training and Championship modes. The game is unlicensed (except by Kawasaki), so all riders and teams are fictional.

The game now has more polygonal roadside objects than F1, and there is still a Turbo mode, allowing for faster racing at the expense of some of the detail. You have the ability to turn on or off weather (during rainy days the graphics are darker and the bike has less traction). The number of laps on each course can be 5, 10 or 15, and there are 4 skill levels. Some changes have been made to how the vehicle handles, to emphasize the switch from cars to bikes.

Trivia

Platform differences

  • Genesis version: Left and Right controls - have only 2 keys. It has a smaller render window and lower frame-rate, and drifting slows the bike. The following features are exclusive to the Genesis version: pit-in request key, 1 player turbo mode, 1 player versus computer mode.
  • SNES version: Left and Right controls - have 2 keys to light turn and 2 keys to hard turn, also combo usage supported (hard left + light left, for example). It has a bigger racing wheel and hands animations as well as smoother frame-rate compared to the Genesis version. The following is exclusive to the SNES version: Suzuka 8 hr mode.
