Tips / Warnings

WARNING: If the KTM is built with blueprints obtained from Fusion Boxes, the R&D will not be accessible. It is highly recommended that the player completes the event first.

Owing to the difficulty of maneuvering a motorbike, it's highly recommended to practice with Suzuki GSX-R750 (which costs only A8Credits 30,000 or A8Tokens 150) in Motor Blitz first, before taking on the R&D.
