KT Racing and Bigben have completed the sequel to the TT Isle of Man video game, TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2, and it is expected to be available in March 2020 for game consoles and PCs.
KT Racing is a French company that specializes in motorsports video games, and Bigben is a publisher of video games that acquired KT Racing.
For TT Isle of Man 2, the bike physics have been rebuilt from the ground up to create a more realistic behavior. The gyroscopic effect is now completely integrated for more precise steering, and speed wobbles have been added to alert riders that a fall could be imminent.
The brakes and shocks have also been redesigned. They now respond to all bumps in the road and create a riding experience that is more realistic to what a real motorcyclist feels.

Davey Todd and Julien Toniutti Collaborate in Making TT Isle of Man 2 Video Game
To create the realistic simulation, the game makers turned to two of the best up-and-coming riders: English road racer Davey Todd and Julien Toniutti, the fastest French rider on the Isle of Man circuit.
About Davey Todd:
Davey Todd is a young English rider who specializes in road racing and already has an impressive trophy haul at only 23 years old. In 2018, while preparing for his first Isle of Man TT, Davey decided to practice on his brother’s console for two months so he could perfect his knowledge of the iconic 60km circuit. As a result, he was ranked second in the game’s worldwide leaderboards and became the second fastest newcomer of all time in the real race. In 2019, he proved his riding talents in his second appearance at the TT by finishing in the top eight in all categories and achieving sixth place in the Senior Race.
About Julien Toniutt:
Like Davey Todd, Julien Toniutti collaborated on the game’s production by sharing his experience and impressions with the developers to help them create a strikingly realistic simulation and optimize all aspects of the riding physics.
Julien Toniutti is an experienced rider who has taken part in the TT three times. In 2018, he beat the all-time fastest lap record for a French rider on the Isle of Man circuit and subsequently received the “Fastest French Road Racing Rider” award at the Paris Motorcycle Show.
“Competing in the TT is the ultimate dream of any rider,” said Toniutti. “In TT Isle Of Man – Ride on The Edge 2, the aim is to reproduce the sensation of speed and adrenaline, as well as the concentration and control required for any Tourist Trophy rider, while the player sits comfortably in their chair, risk free.”
