    A new video for MotoGP 19 is here - introducing the 'Historical Riders' trailer.

    MotoGP '19 looks set to be the biggest and most ambitious officially licenced bike racing game in the history of the long running franchise, and one thing developers Milestone appear to be very proud of is the inclusion of some former greats from the series.

    MotoGP 19 - A closer look at AI.

    Set to feature in MotoGP 19 as part of a new game mode within the title, the 'historical riders' content is scary for me as I can remember most of them racing back in the day!

    The new title will offer up the opportunity to "ride as some of the greatest riders of the past in their most iconic moments as professional racers".. sounds interesting doesn't it?

    Well it won't be long until we find out... check out the new trailer at the head of this article as we await release this June 6th.

    I'd say a decent gamepad.

    I use a Xbox 360 controller. I've seen some use joysticks designed for fligth-sims, which sorta makes sense with the tilting, but I don't like to drive that way. There are also "sim-handlebars", but I've never used one and they are quite hard to find.

    I use my wheel, limit the travel to 110 degrees and it's like tilting the handlebars.

    Michael Doohan will most likely be a part of it. Absolute legend. Only man I ever saw walking into a motorbike race with walkers. Broke his leg 37 times or something what doss he do? Shift the shifter to the handlebars and carry on... absolute mad lad.

    So where can you buy sim-handlebars? I've seen some old ones but none available? Would love this in VR with head leaning like in HoverBike!

    REAL sim racers use this instead of joysticks.

    The tracks are quite good, I don't know if they are laser scanned. I haven't spotted any 'errors' in the tracks they've got in GP18.

    They use drone-scanning tracks.
