Appearances Mario Kart 8, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

The Sport Bike is a Bike body that appears in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. As its name implies, it resembles a typical sports bike with a fairing enclosing the front part and as such it could be considered the successor to the Mach Bike from Mario Kart Wii (which can be implied by the Japanese name). The bike has good acceleration and handling stats, but its weight and especially traction stats are poor. The character's emblem is at the center of the front side and next to the exhaust pipe. It changes its color depending on its driver. It has the same stats as the Comet, the Yoshi Bike, and the Jet Bike. It has a four-stroke twin cylinder and its sound is shared with the Yoshi Bike.

Although this bike is available from the start, CPUs will never use it, thus meaning that it is a player-exclusive vehicle in the Wii U version. It is also the only starting vehicle with this feature. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, however, it must now be unlocked by collecting 1,350 coins, and its stats have been altered, with the bike now sharing its stats with only the Jet Bike and the Prancer. CPU Larry, Rosalina and Koopa Troopa can be occasionally seen using this body, with Larry using the Monster tires, while Rosalina pairs it with the Slim tires and Koopa Troopa using the Standard tires respectively.
