The Bumble V is a kart part that appears in Mario Kart 7. Its name is a pun of the word "Bumblebee", and itself resembles a bee in most aspects. The Bumble V offers an acceleration and off-road boost, but its weight and handling are hindered. The Bumble V is tied with the Barrel Train and Bruiser for having the lowest handling of all kart bodies, and it is tied with the Birthday Girl and Egg 1 for having the highest acceleration of all kart bodies, and it has the highest acceleration of any kart body that doesn't have a negative impact on the Speed stat. It is also one of only five kart bodies to increase the off-road stat, with the other four being the Bolt Buggy, Cact-X, Pipe Frame, and Tiny Tug.

In terms of its hidden stats, the Bumble V offers one of the highest mini-turbo boosts, which it shares with the Barrel Train and Koopa Clown kart bodies.

It is one of the three vehicles in Mario Kart 7 to have a two-stroke engine, the other being the Standard Kart and the Cloud 9. Its engine sound is shared with the Cloud 9, which in turn based on Koopa Troopa and Toad's kart in Super Mario Kart.

CPU Honey Queen, Yoshi, Wario and Wiggler can occasionally drive this body with the Slick, Sponge tires and the Flower Glider.

The Bumble V returns in Mario Kart Tour. It appears to be equipped with the Slick tires, based on their appearance in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
