Following the launch of this year’s official Grand Prix motorcycle racing game, MotoGP 22, while the racing is solid, the career lengthy and all the new track layouts present, there was one glaring omission.

This season’s bikes!

While the rest was correct, and team names, bike names and engine sounds – the exact 2022 livery designs were notably only by their absence, and so were some of the revised motorcycles too.

This has now changed with a new game update, available today (5th May) for PC, PlayStation and Xbox.

Top of the list is this season’s Honda. You can visibly tell that the game now has the latest model, with the large and more aggressive snout. Similarly, the Suzuki design now has a black background to the rider number, the Yamaha has revised aerodynamic appendages and the Mooney VR46 Racing Team now features the actual Mooney sponsorship.

This is something that several fans have been vocal about on social media, but the updates have arrived – for the top MotoGP class at least – two weeks after the initial game release.

Adjusted performance and banners

The real-world 2022 season rider performance is also said to have been implemented for your computer-controlled AI rivals too. An unenviable task with such an unpredictable season at present, but expect Enea Bastianini and Aleix Espargaró to be nearer the sharp end.

The track-side banners are now also 2022-specification, for all those trackside furniture fans.

Alongside the main motorbike and AI changes, a suite of minor updates such as post-online race animations and stickers for the graphic creation tools have also been added. The full changelog is below.
