Hang-On is a motorcycle racing game released to arcades in 1985. It was developed by Sega's Japanese AM2 studio and subsequently ported to the MSX and Sega Master System home consoles.
The title "Hang-On" was inspired by a turning technique of the same name used by motorbike racers that series creator Yu Suzuki found in a motorcycle magazine. Suzuki later learned that the technique in English is referred to as "hang off"; nevertheless, the name "Hang-On" stuck.
Description taken from the back cover of the US release:
Hang On is the 3-D motorcycle race game that's taken the arcades by storm. Race through grasslands, seasides, valleys, nighttime city scapes and, of course, motorcycle racecourses. This game is so fast it even gives you special techniques like Hang-on and Countersteering for taking the corners.
