Appearances Mario Kart Wii

The Phantom is a large bike that appears in Mario Kart Wii. It resembles a Honda Gold Wing with a stylized boot and 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. In fact, except for the Offroader with its drift stat, no other kart has stats similar to this bike's stats, but the Phantom's stats are similar to that of the medium-sized Zip Zip bike. The emblem is located on the sides and rear of the bike. This is one of four vehicles that does not have a counterpart for its size class, the other three being the Piranha Prowler, Classic Dragster, and Zip Zip.

The Phantom can be unlocked by winning the Mirror Special Cup or by playing 4,050 races.

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 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 control.

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.
