Motorcycle gaming fans rejoice! Handlebar peripheral teased by VRIDER SBK developer

VRAL Games, the team behind the VR-Only Meta Quest title VRIDER SBK, has announced that it’s developing a handlebar controller designed specifically for the official game of the FIM Superbike World Championship.

In a joint effort with Liquid Cube, VRAL has released prototype images of its T-TORQUE controller and it resembles a cross between a Segway and an RGB light factory.

However, even in its early stages of development, the T-TORQUE has both clutch and front brake levers, with two pedals (or paddles) below, perhaps ideal for shifting gears (if indeed they are mappable).

There appears to be plenty of buttons within reach of players’ right and left thumbs, although it’s unclear whether the right handlebar grip can be pulled back to imitate a throttle, as few official details have been released. W

What we can guess, however, is that the T-TORQUE will be Bluetooth compatible given this is how Quest controllers currently connect to their headsets.

VRAL’s T-TORQUE is currently slated for a Winter 2024 release, with pricing and compatibility details yet to be revealed.

Motorcycle game fans will no doubt be hoping the T-TORQUE can be used with more bike titles, including MotoGP 24, GP Bikes and TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 3, but until more information is unveiled we can only speculate. 

What do you make of the T-TORQUE controller? Is it the accessible motorcycle controller bike fans have been waiting for? Let us know in our Discord server.
