The Standard Bike is a type of bike introduced in Mario Kart Wii. The Standard Bike is seen as a counterpart to the Standard Kart as it is balanced in stats. It resembles the bike used in NES game Excitebike.


Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

The Standard Bike made its first appearance in Mario Kart Wii. Much like the Standard Kart, each size class has its own Standard Bike, being named Standard Bike S for the small size, Standard Bike M for the medium size, and Standard Bike L for the large size. Standard Bikes perform similar to Standard Karts stat-wise, as small characters have better handling and acceleration while large characters have higher top speed and weight. All Standard Bikes are drift-type bikes, and their appearances are different between size classes. They are equipped with single cylinder four-stroke engines. The emblem is located on the front and sides of the bike.

A trophy of Mario riding his Standard Bike M appears in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. A support spirit using the artwork of Waluigi riding his Standard Bike L appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which increases the user's speed while they are at 0% damage.


Battle Mode[edit]

Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe[edit]

The Standard Bike returns in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, being the only bike to return. It is redesigned to have a more modern look, resembling a late-2000s dirtbike. The side emblems have been moved closer to the front. In this game, the Standard Bike appears as one of the selectable vehicle parts for customization, they also can have custom tires and gliders. Unlike the Standard Kart, the Standard Bike alters stats slightly, raising the acceleration and handling stats, while lowering weight and traction. It shares its stats with Pipe Frame, Wild Wiggler, Flame Rider, Varmint, W 25 Silver Arrow, and City Tripper.

This is the only bike body used by CPU-players other than Mario, Link, Female Villager, and Isabelle in the original Mario Kart 8.

CPU-controlled lightweight characters (with the exception of Larry and Wendy) always pair the Standard Bike with Standard tires, middleweight characters (in addition to Larry, Wendy, and Link) always use the Slim tires (although Daisy can alternately be seen using the Monster tires instead), and heavyweight characters (with the exception of Link) always use the Monster tires (although Waluigi can also be seen using the Slim tires).

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Standard Bike's stats have been altered, and are now exclusively shared with the Flame Rider, W 25 Silver Arrow, and Wild Wiggler. Additionally, CPU Inkling Boys and Girls are always seen using Monster tires like heavyweights instead of Slim tires like other middleweights. Baby Peach, Baby Daisy, and Cat Peach now use the Plane Glider with this bike body instead of the Super Glider. More CPUs are also seen using other bike bodies than the standard version as well.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

A collectible trophy showing Mario performing a trick on a Standard Bike from Mario Kart Wii appears in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. The trophy is obtained by having Dr. Mario unlocked and clearing the Oh Yeah, Luigi Time! event.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

The Standard Bike appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a Novice-class support spirit, requiring one free support slot. The image used to represent the spirit is the Mario Kart Wii artwork featuring Waluigi on the bike. Fighters equipped with the spirit have increased movement speed, but only at 0% damage. The spirit's puppet fighters are a team of four Warios with increased move speed and powerful side specials, and the battle takes place on the Figure-8 Circuit stage.

Mario + Standard Bike Mario + Standard Bike trophy from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Wii Mario Kart Wii 04/2008 In Mario Kart Wii, bikes were the big, new thing. This Standard Bike M is, as you'd expect, a very standard bike–its speed, weight, acceleration, handling, off-road, drift, and mini-turbo stats are all decidedly middle of the road. This makes it a great choice for Mario Kart beginners or for series veterans trying out bikes for the first time.
