December 11, 2007 The Project Gotham Racing (PGR) franchise has always put gamers behind the wheel of some of the world’s most powerful and desirable cars, but with PGR4 gamers now also have the chance to throw a virtual leg over of some of the world’s best two wheeled vehicles including BMW's K 1200 R.

The K 1200 R is billed as the most powerful production naked roadster in the world with American racer Brian Parriott timed at an average speed of approximately 164 mph (263 km/h) on a K 1200 R in 2005 on the Bonneville Salt Flats in the USA. Now gamers can test the power of the bike from the comfort and safety of their own lounge room.

The inclusion of motorcycles for the first time hasn’t lessened the collection of iconic four wheeled machines with the inclusion of cars such the BMW M1 pro car, the 507 hp BMW M5, and classics such as the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray and the 1978 Lamborghini Countach LP400. The inclusion of motorcycles in the latest installment also gives players the chance to race two motorcycles side by side or settle a few arguments by pitting cars and motorcycles against each other. An improved ‘Kudos’ reward system has been designed specifically for motorcycles and cars to provide gamers with more incentives to show off their distinctive driving and riding styles. Participants can catch air, wheelie, endo and powerslide their way to victory to gain access to better garages and special races.
