Motorcycle racing is one of the hot favorite online games. One of main reasons behind its huge popularity is the automatic record feature, which allows you to play against the previous high scores and improve your own performance. A brief search on the internet will reveal that there has been a huge demand for racing game downloads especially among kids motor cycle games like Daredevil and Motor Bike Game. The later game offer features like pit stops and laps, which gives it a real motor cycle race feel. The primary goal of these race games is to always finish first to move on to the next level of difficulty.

In 1991, the first ever motorcycle racing game was created as video game. The name of the game was Road Rash and was developed by Electronic Arts. The game provided players to indulge in violent street motorcycle races. It was probably the first game in the history of motorcycle racing games that had the perfect combination of combat and motorcycle racing. The game also allowed players to use weapons (clubs, crowbars, cattle prods or police batons).

With every rise in the difficulty level, the players were required to finish each race on one of the first three places to move onto the next level. The players also received certain amount of money on every victory, which can be used to upgrade the motorcycle, or buy a new motorcycle or pay the police fine when being arrested. As, the game involved illegal street races, probability of police was very high.

Over the years, many new forms and styles of motorcycle racing games were introduced; such as Motor Bike Game, Daredevil, Test Drive Unlimited, Grand Theft Auto or MX vs. ATV Unleashed. Though, these games were not real motorcycle racing games but they did combined motorcycle racing with car racing or boat racing, etc.

MX vs. ATV Unleashed is considered to be one of the most original motorcycle racing games. The game involved trophy trucks, monster trucks and motorcycles to participate in tough race together on a single track.

Another motorcycle racing game like the Test Drive Unlimited offered off road and on road race between cars and motorcycles across one thousand miles of Hawaiian territory. Finally, Daredevil is a motorcycle racing game meant for kids that lets them perform some of the most spectacular stunts ever seen on the internet.
