The Venus Wars

 VENW   (Dark Horse, 1991-1992)

and 1991 Yoshikazu Yasuhiko and Gakken. English translation 1991 Studio Proteus and Dark Horse Comics, Inc.

From the Slings & Arrows Comic Guide:

On May 12, 2003, an asteroid slammed into the surface of Venus, dramatically altering its rotation and atmosphere. Suddenly, this inhospitable planet showed the possibility of supporting human life. Only four years afterward, the first terraforming team landed. And by 2083, Venus was an established human outpost.

Inevitably, warfare followed. The Venusian continents of Aphrodia and Ishtar began fighting deadly battles against each other using futuristic weaponry. On Io, capital city of Aphrodia, military leaders began looking for new blood to give them an edge and found it in the form of Ken Seno, a fearless battle bike racer. His job had been to ride bikes in a dangerous version motocross. What they offered him instead was a chance to drive a one ton bike with a turbo-charged 3500cc engine. But they never told him that getting onboard this marvelous piece of machinery meant fighting for them in the Venus Wars. ~FP
