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 two vehicles in Mario Kart 7 to have a two-stroke engine, the other being the Standard Kart. Its engine sound is derived from a buzzing bee.
