GP Rider (GPライダー) is an arcade racing game developed by Sega for Sega X Board arcade hardware in 1990.

GP Rider is a pseudo entry in the Hang-On series of games, much in the same way G-LOC is considered a sequel to After Burner.


This arcade version of GP Rider is similar in design to Super Monaco GP - the player rides either a manual or automatic transmission motorbike through four laps of a single course, the only aims being to win or beat the time record of other players.
