Remember the very first time you played MX Bikes, just after playing MX Simulator, MX vs ATV or MXGP? It was absolutely awesome, but equally as weird at the same time. That weirdness in how a bike handles, the unnatural feeling of it, is what we focused on for the upcoming Project OEM release.
Ever since the release of MX Bikes we’ve been dealing with a lot of game interference in how bike and rider respond to the input we provide through our controllers. It for example sadly isn’t at all a rare occurrence where you want to turn left, but find yourself turning right even though your control input states differently. We’ve learned weird habits and tricks to counter this interference. Forced to “just get used to it” as there really wasn’t a proper solution.
In our previous Preview Bike release we already implemented a fix to reduce the level of interference. Thanks to our continued research and development we are now able to provide you with an extended version of that fix decreasing interference levels even further. All of this was done in an attempt to restore the connection between the player’s input and what happens on your screen. Hopefully making MX Bikes more fun, more accessible and ultimately regrowing the community we all love dearly.
The new Preview Bikes have a very natural, predictable and nimble feeling to them. It will feel strange at first and you might want to revise settings such as “Direct Lean” (lower is better). But trust us when we say this: Once you start riding these bikes like you would ride a real bike, you’ll find yourself soaring across tracks like you never have been able to do before. These bikes offer a drastic increase in control and consistency, allowing you to push things like scrubs and whips to a whole new level!

Please make sure to give the bikes some intensive testing, as these feel nothing like any other bike really. We’d be surprised if you jump on one of the bikes and feel no difference.
We seriously hope you enjoy this final preview version as we’re nearing a potential release of the pack.
Thanks to everyone sticking with us and supporting our project. We wouldn’t be here without your continous support and feedback.
