There can’t be many racing cars or bikes which haven’t been added to a race sim at this point. Especially as TrackDayR adds a Polini 135cc vintage scooter along with a new hotfix update. It comes just a few days after they also released a Big Twin Bagger into the game, meaning two unusual and fun two wheeled options have arrived in just a few days.
Although MadCow refer to it as a Polini vintage scooter, the Italian firm founded in 1945 actually builds minibikes, and focuses on providing parts and upgrades for scooters. Which is why they actually refer to it as a Polini Vespa, with what appears to be a racing version of a classic Primavera or similar, upgraded with a 135cc kit for the track.
Putting the typically Italian approach to branding and naming conventions to one side, it means you can hammer a classic two-stroke scooter around the circuits in the game, or go and mess with some sports bikes in the online mode. And that’s just a cool and fun addition, which I don’t think has appeared in any motorcycle sims or games I’ve ever played.
Scooter racing is a serious business in various countries around the world, including Italy. And most fans of two wheels can appreciate a classic scooter, even if they’re more of a rocker than a mod.
If that’s not enough to make you happy, then you’re obviously pretty cynical. But MadCow have also released a new update for the motorcycle sim with some hotfixes for very low speed crashes, controlling your lean while you’re pulling a wheelie, and several more issues.
