City Tripper is a bike body that is included in the Animal Crossing × Mario Kart 8 downloadable content pack for Mario Kart 8. It is a scooter that resembles a classic Vespa, and it also looks similar to the Sugarscoot from Mario Kart Wii. The character's emblem is found on the front left of the scooter, as well as on a small zipper on the rear of the vehicle. The City Tripper offers a small acceleration boost and a large handling boost at the cost of weight and traction. It shares its stats with Pipe Frame, Wild Wiggler, Standard Bike, W 25 Silver Arrow, Varmint, and Flame Rider. It has a four stroke engine with its own unique sound.
In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it is now available from the start. A CPU-controlled female Villager and Isabelle use this body paired with the Paper Glider, but will also use the Slim tires at times instead; a CPU-controlled male Villager will also use the City Tripper with the Slim tires and the Paper Glider as well. Additionally, the City Tripper's stats have been altered so that it now hinders speed, but gives a higher boost in acceleration and now slightly boosts traction. In terms of its hidden stats, it no longer increases water speed and now hinders air speed and air handling, while hindering anti-gravity speed further, with no compensation. It now only shares its stats with the Pipe Frame and the Varmint.
The City Tripper has twelve color schemes, one for each color. It is also one of the two DLC vehicles that change colors, the other one being the GLA.
