Tourist Trophy is the application of Gran Turismo 4's formula and engine to a motorcycle racing game. Even with reduced on-screen vehicle count and loss of certain tracks (including off-road courses, even with inclusion of motard models), the track features the Circuit Ricardo Tormo that would be given one chance for four-wheelers to drive in, as well as a 1080i support carried over from the game's four-wheeler cousin.

The hidden menu that was in GT4 can also be accessed in this game using the same method: enter the Options menu and input the same code, L1, Up, L2, Down, R1, Left, R2, Right, Start, Start on the second controller. The sound heard when entering a menu from the main menu will then be played to confirm the right input. Unlike in GT4, the code does not need to be entered each time the player visits the screen.
In addition to the Secret and Monitor, two additional options also appear here to support the Secret portion of the menu.
Secret (Special Settings)
This portion of the menu works exactly the same like in GT4, although with some changes as TT does not have Favorites option in its Arcade Mode.
- Specific Bikes: Restricts the motorcycles available in Arcade Mode to those defined in the Bike menu.
- Specific Courses: Restricts the courses available in Arcade Mode to those set in Course Registration Settings, which is a hidden setting in this game as TT does not feature LAN mode.
- Specific Opponents: Restricts the opponent motorcycles chosen in Arcade Mode to those defined in the Bike menu.
- Specific Makes: Allows the game to be set to only feature a certain manufacturer. When this is the case, you cannot enter Tourist Trophy Mode, and the title screen's is modified with the chosen manufacturer on top of the game logo on the title screen. Selecting none, the default option, reverts to normal gameplay.
Monitor (Detail Monitor Settings)
This portion of the menu also works exactly the same like in GT4, where it allows you to adjust the camera and the display of the screen during races.
- Flag: Four flags can be chosen (FLAG_NONE, FLAG_ROTY, FLAG ROTX, and FLAG_ROTX|FLAG_ROTY). These appears to deal with settings on each horizontal/vertical axis, but it does not appear to affect anything.
- Zoom: Adjust the field of view, in range of 0.00 to 3.00.
- Distance: Adjusts the distance from the viewpoint of the player's camera between 200 to 1200 millimeters; the default setting is 276 mm.
- Width: Adjusts the width of the display area, between 200 to 600 millimeters.
- Height: Adjusts the height of the display area, between 200 to 400 millimeters.
- Aspect: Adjusts the pixel aspect ratio, between 0.00 to 2.00.
- Overscan Factor: Obvious what it adjusts, the value is 0.00 to 2.00.
- Border Width (Left, Right, Top, Bottom): Adjusts the width of each side of the screen border in millimeters. The range of each is 0 (default) to 300 millimeters.
The default settings depends on the selected aspect ratio mode:
Bike (Bike Settings)
A replacement for the Favorites option in GT4, where chosen cars are determined, this menu allows the player to select what motorcycles are available to be used by the Secret Settings menu.
Course Registration Settings
This menu, originally part of GT4's LAN capabilities, allows you to select what tracks can be chosen for the Specific Courses option. Note that most of the tracks have the value for maximum vehicles on the track of six, even though Tourist Trophy only supports four.
An entry for Buell LIGHTNING CITYX XB9SX RacingModify '05 can be found in the database files in the American version of the game, which would have been a racing version of the Buell LIGHTNING CITYX XB9SX '05, a motorcycle added in that version of the game. Coincidentally, the other three road-going bikes added in that version do have their own racing versions. In the European version of the game, this entry was removed from the database.
There is an Arcade Mode thumbnail for the Honda RC162 '61, a bike not normally accessible in that mode.
The American version of the game adds seven additional motorcycles to the game:
- Buell LIGHTNING CITYX XB9SX '05
- Honda NS400R '85
- Honda NS400R RacingModify '85
- Suzuki RG500 Gamma '85
- Suzuki RG500 Gamma RacingModify '85
- Yamaha RZV500R '84
- Yamaha RZV500R RacingModify '84
The European version of the game also adds three additional motorcycles, on top of the above:
- Kawasaki Z1000 R1 '82
- Kawasaki Z1000 S1 '82
- YOSHIMURA GS1000R YOSHIMURA XR69 '80
For the North American and European version of the game, the new Buell became obtainable from the 2-stroke Legend Series championship (in Hero Blue Translucid color) and the third race of the Nostalgic Festival series (at Special Stage Route 5, for the Kick Ash Translucid color); these events originally do not award prize bikes in the Japanese version. Additionally, for the European version of the game, two events have their prize vehicles changed to accommodate that version's new ones:
Race 1: Suzuka Circuit
|Suzuki DR-Z400SM '05||Kawasaki Z1000 S1 '82|
|Special Machine Cup
Race 2: New York
|Yamaha VMAX RacingModify '05||Yoshimura GS1000R YOSHIMURA XR69 '80|
Because of the changes to the K1200R Cup and Special Machine Cup, the Suzuki DR-Z400SM '05 and Yamaha VMAX RacingModify '05 are obtainable from the first two races of the Nostalgic Festival event in the European version instead.
Some motorcycles have performance changes in the North American and European version of the game, where they use the "eu" variants:

The European version also adds three helmets to the above list. Curiously, entries for Arai SNC RX-7 RR4 NAKANO-1 and Arai SNC RX-7 RR4 NAKANO-2 are present in American version of the game, unused with different names.
|arai0011||Arai SNC RX-7 RR4 NAKANO-1||Arai SNC RX-7 RR4 A|
|arai0012||Arai SNC RX-7 RR4 NAKANO-2||Arai SNC RX-7 RR4 B|

|Equipment Combination 1||Arai ASTRO-TR TATTOO (Red)||Arai SNC RX-7 RR4 C|
|Equipment Combination 2||Arai RAPIDE-SR YUKI||Arai RAPIDE-SR AOYAMA|
