Ride on the Edge 3 | traction

TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 3 is the first entry from RaceWard Studio in the Ride on the Edge series that Kylotonn started in 2018.

The game centers around the awesome 37.73 mile Snaefell Mountain Course, which meanders through the Isle of Man’s highways and byways, with all the bumps, curbs and challenges you’d expect from a city course, so bike upgrades are key are for performance.

With an upgrade system based on the team’s first motorcycle simulation, RiMS Racing, it’s possible to tune your bike to your liking – important when average speeds of over 130mph are reached on the TT track.

Below we walk you through all the upgrades available in the Superbike and Supersport classes and how they affect the performance of your bike. We also recommend which upgrades to purchase first to help you on your way to complete TT victory!

How do I upgrade my bike in TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 3?

You can upgrade your bike in TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 3 by visiting one of the island’s many inspection bays (denoted by a purple icon with a wrench). Select the inspection bay and hold the X/Square button to bring up the bike setup menu.

From here you’ll see 11 icons pointing to different components on your bike, with each component having five levels of upgrades (except for the fuel tank, which remains unchanged but has an adjustable fuel amount).

Press X or A to select the component you want to upgrade and use the L1/R1 or LB/RB keys to cycle through the upgrade tiers to view their performance benefits. Before you can upgrade components, you must first collect Upgrade Points.

All upgrades apply to both Superbike and Supersport classes, but some offer slightly different bonuses between classes. The following is based on using the BMW M1000RR 2021 Superbike and Honda CBR600RR 2022 Supersport bike.

components and upgrades

fuel tank

The fuel tank is not upgradeable, but you can customize the fuel load. Supersport bikes have a 17-liter tank in the game, suitable for a four-lap race on the entire TT track (when fully upgraded). In the real case, a full tank is only enough for two laps.

The Superbike fuel tank is 16.5L in-game, which is odd considering it’s smaller than the Supersport tank. This will only take two rounds of the TT course – which is more in line with the real-world event.

Fuel economy can be reduced by upgrading your engine, but more on that later.

disguise

Fairing is critical to the aerodynamics and protection of motorcycle components. It also acts as a shield for the rider, protecting them from rocks and other hazards.

Upgrading the fairing will reduce the overall weight of your bike and there will be significantly less drag through the air. The additional effect is that the stability of the rear of the bike is improved – crucial when braking. The Tier 5 fairing upgrade grants a 100% rear stability bonus in both the Supersport and Superbike classes.

chassis

Upgrading the chassis offers similar bonuses as the fairing, allowing for improvements in weight, stability and drag coefficient, with the maximum upgrade giving another 100% stability bonus for the rear axle.

front tire

Upgrading the front tires improves tire wear (life cycle), dry grip, and wet grip, with improvements in base temperature and heat duration offered at tiers 4 and 5.

In fact, these last two categories relate to how hot the tire is (higher upgrade levels bring the tires closer to their optimal grip levels) and how well the tire responds to heat cycles. The Tier 5 tire upgrade grants an overall 8.8% dry grip bonus and a 6.2% wet grip bonus for both Superbike and Supersport classes.

front suspension

The ā€œfront suspensionā€ component slot refers to the dampers of the bike. The suspension upgrade saves weight, increases stability, and allows better tuning of the spring preload range, as well as the rebound and compression (shock) settings of the damper.

Upgrading the front suspension to level 5 results in a huge 100% stability bonus on the front axle and helps prevent accidents in the truck bed.

front brakes

When you’re traveling at over 250 km/h on a 50 km/h speed limit road, you need excellent brakes. Upgrading your brakes will reduce weight and increase stopping power front and rear, although there’s no brake preload adjustment.

Still, with shorter braking distances, it should be easier to slow down on the way to Parliament Square and avoid an embarrassing side impact in front of the crowd.

engine

The engine is the heart of the bike and therefore an obvious starting point in the upgrade process. The higher motor upgrade levels not only reduce the overall weight of your bike, but also improve low-rpm handling out of corners. The performance is also increased.

But perhaps engine upgrades have the biggest impact on fuel economy, with the top tier reducing superbike fuel economy by a whopping 41%, making them essential for the six-lap senior TT race. The same upgrade level offers a 45% reduction in fuel consumption in the Supersport category.

transmission

Upgrading your gearing will again reduce the overall weight of your bike and slightly improve torque.

However, the Level 5 upgrade cuts shift times by 0.05 seconds on Superbikes (0.04 seconds on Supersport) and offers a two percent traction bonus for Superbikes (four percent for Supersports), which always comes in handy when trying to outputting more than 200 hp at the exit one of the slower corners of the TT.

shock absorber

As with the front suspension, the improvement of the rear shock absorber results in weight reduction and expands the adjustment range of spring reload range, compression range and rebound range.

Which upgrade should I get first in TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 3?

Upgrading your bike in TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 3 is a delicate balancing act. In the early stages of Season mode, it’s best to first purchase a number of low-tier upgrades, with a focus on the fairing, chassis, and tires, to gain weight, improve aerodynamics, and increase grip improve (the suspension and shock upgrades can wait until then). they offer fewer benefits).

One important thing to keep in mind is that upgrading your engine to level 5 brings huge benefits in terms of fuel efficiency and is therefore vital for the six lap Superbike TT race.
