Appears in Mario Kart Wii

The Phantom is a large Off-Road-type outside drifting bike that appears in Mario Kart Wii. It resembles a modified Harley Davidson Road King with fin attachments. The Phantom is one of seven vehicles in Mario Kart Wii to go through a design change other than a palette-swap, the others being the Booster Seat, Bit Bike, Flame Runner, Wario Bike, Shooting Star, and Spear. In this case, Rosalina's Phantom has its foot pedestals positioned further, and its center is slightly thinner in appearance. Also, Bowser's and Dry Bowser's Phantom have their handles positioned lower than the others.

This bike does not have a kart counterpart. Except for the Offroader with its drift stat, no other kart has stats similar to this bike's stats, but its medium counterpart is the Zip Zip. It is one of six vehicles that does not have a counterpart for its size class, the other five being the Blue Falcon, Jet Bubble, Classic Dragster, Piranha Prowler, and Zip Zip.

The Phantom can be unlocked by winning the Mirror Special Cup or by playing 4,050 races. This and the Offroader are the only vehicles in the game with a drift stat of less than twenty.

Vehicle type:

The Phantom features exactly average Mini-Turbo. Its best stat is the off-road stat, which is both the best of all large vehicles, as well as the same as that of the Dolphin Dasher (its indirect group counterpart) and Bit Bike, making it the only large vehicle besides Dry Bowser riding the Wario Bike that can drift off-road. Its handling and weight are also good, while its speed and acceleration are both average. However, the bike suffers from the worst drifting in the game and drifts outwards, making it hard to take sharp corners. The Phantom has a stat total of 298 points.

Compared to the Zip Zip, the Phantom is slightly faster and heavier, but it has slightly worse handling, acceleration, offroad, mini-turbo, and drift. The Phantom is also the second lightest large vehicle in the game, as it is only heavier than the Shooting Star, and its weight is tied with the medium-sized Wild Wing kart. It is also the third slowest large vehicle in the game; it is only faster than the Wario Bike and the Offroader, and having its speed tied with the Magikruiser and the Standard Bike M.

If Waluigi rides the Phantom, it will exceed the drift stat of the Super Blooper and Wario Bike by one point.
