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. The bike has good acceleration and handling stats, but its weight and especially traction stats are poor. The character's logo is at the center of the front side, and there is another logo next to the exhaust pipe. It changes its varnish 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, CPU players will never use it, thus it is a player exclusive vehicle in the Wii U version. It is also the only starter vehicle with this feature. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, however, it must now be unlocked by collecting coins. A CPU Larry or Rosalina can be occasionally seen using this body paired with the Slim tires and Super Glider.

Trivia[edit]

  • Like the Circuit Special, excluding the large Mii, the green varnish is the only varnish color that's not used by any large body frame characters.
