Amigo's gear rides with the rhythm of the Samba, sounding out a maraca beat as it flies along.

— Description, Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity[1]

The Rhythm Machine (リズムマシン Rizumumashin?) is a Board type Extreme Gear that appeared in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity. It is Amigo's personal Extreme Gear, and his default Extreme Gear.


According to its profile, the Rhythm Machine rides with the rhythm of the Samba, while it gives off a maraca in flight. It can be unlocked in the game, alongside Amigo, by clearing all missions in Story Mode. It is only useable to Amigo in normal races, but is usable to all characters (except Dr. Eggman) in Survival Relay.

The Rhythm Machine basically looks like a giant red maraca with two extra spokes sticking out of the back, along with three exhaust ports on the back rear and two yellow circular foot panels on top.

Abilities and traits

As a Board type Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, the Rhythm Machine is well-balanced in its attributes with average statistics, and is suited for general riding. Like most other character-exclusive Extreme Gears, the Rhythm Machine does not possess any unique abilities of its own.
