Excitebike was released on November 30, 1984 in Japan at a retail price of 5500 Yen.

Export releases:
[US] "Excitebike [Model NES-EB-USA]"

Nintendo ran out of Excitebike boards when marketing to the U.S. market in the mid-1980s. So they opened up their Famicom boards, stuck them into U.S. cartridges, attached a NES-Joint-1 and marketed them to the U.S.

The main character of Excitebike (as well as his pallet-swapped rivals) appear as assist trophy characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Nintendo Wii.

Excitebike's gameplay was parodied in a sketch on the television show 'Robot Chicken'.

An Excitebike visualizer was included in the Nintendo DSi and 3DS that is used while playing music from your SD card on Nintendo DSi Sound or Nintendo 3DS Sound.
