Appearances Mario Kart DS

The Zipper is Waluigi's second standard kart from Mario Kart DS. It is a Chopper styled motorcycle. It has the Body Style similar to a bike and bares an appearance similar to the Waluigi Racer from Mario Kart Double Dash, the Purple Strike from the Mario Kart Arcade Series, and The Duke from Mario Kart 8. Many believed these karts were bikes, but since Mario Kart Wii was the first game to actually have bikes, they were considered karts. The kart is well-balanced. It is the first bike-like vehicle to appear in the Mario Kart series; however, Mario Kart Wii was the first game to have actual bikes. The Zipper has the same speed as the Shooting Star and the Light Dancer and the same weight like the Streamliner and the ROB-LGS.
