The Daytripper (known as the Royal Racer in Europe and Oceania) is a medium-sized kart found in Mario Kart Wii. The vehicle resembles an old-fashioned and decorated, horse-drawn coach, with its rear tires larger than the front. Its name is a reference to the Beatles' song "Day Tripper", and the Spanish name of "Sunday Driver" references the lyrics "She was a daytripper, Sunday driver yeah".
The Daytripper can be unlocked by winning the 150cc Leaf Cup. Its bike counterpart is the Sugarscoot, which unlike the Daytripper, is available from the beginning of the game. This is the only pair of counterparts in which one vehicle is a starter, while the other is an unlockable. The Daytripper, along with the Cheep Charger, the Classic Dragster, the Dolphin Dasher and the Honeycoupe, has a color scheme for each character. It is also the only medium kart to use Peach's version for the Mario Kart Channel, Time Trial records, and on the unlocking screen. All other medium vehicles use Mario's versions for these appearances.
The Daytripper features great handling along with decent weight, acceleration, off-road, and Mini-Turbo. However, its speed and drifting are rather low. It shares the same weight as the Standard Kart M and the same off-road as the Quacker. It is the slowest medium kart in the game.

"Want a Kart that can blast-off quickly, handles great, and enjoys a nice Mini-Turbo boost? Not concerned about top speed or futuristic aerodynamics? Then Daytripper is the "Dream Sleeper" for you."
