Feel the Experience!

Feel the Experience!

Blue Wing Honda and Sony Entertainment have joined forces to celebrate the launch of the new PlayStation2 game ‘Tourist Trophy' - The Real Riding Simulator.’

Every customer who takes a Honda road bike for a test ride during July and August, will go in the draw to win one of 10 Sony PlayStation2 packs valued at over $300. Customers can also feel the exhilarating experience of using the simulator for themselves, through Sony interactive demonstration units, which will be placed in Red Carpet Honda dealers nationwide.

Developed by the same team that brought us the multi-million hit franchise Gran Turismo, Tourist Trophy features over 100 bikes, including the hero bike, a Honda CBR1000 Fireblade, and the gamer can choose to ride on over 35 worldwide circuits.

Tourist Trophy is sure to be a hit with fans of motorcycle sport who may be familiar with the MotoGP series on PlayStation®2, or just people looking for a motosport game with the emphasis on realism, speed and competition as the game captures the true essence of motorcycle racing: the fluid relationship between man and machine.

Gamers can experience the exhilaration, feel the speed as they twist the throttle and open up each motorbike and savour the precision as each machine is uniquely controlled by the rider’s body movement and balance to create the ultimate motorbike racing simulation. Then they can try the real thing by test riding a Honda road bike!
