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 Wii
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 have outside drifting properties, unlike most other bikes, and their appearances are different between size classes. They are equipped with single cylinder four-stroke engines.
Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
The Standard Bike returns in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and is redesigned to have a more modern look, resembling a late-2000s dirtbike. 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. Mario might use the Comet, while Link might use the Master Cycle. As for the Female Villager and Isabelle, they might use the City Tripper bike. Different from its predecessor, it has a single-cylinder two-stroke engine and shares its high-pitched sound with the Mr. Scooty.
CPU players who use the Standard Bike will pair it with either the Standard tires, the Slim tires, or the Monster tires, with the latter more likely to be seen with the heavyweight characters (excluding Link).
