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[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.

A trophy of Mario riding his Standard Bike M appears in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe[edit]

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. Unlike its predecessor, it has a single-cylinder two-stroke engine and shares its high-pitched sound with the Mr. Scooty.

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.

Mario + Standard Bike SSB4TrophyMarioStandardBike.png 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.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Mario Kart 8, the standard bike features a part of the engine that looks like a ? Block, with another engine part that resembles a Mushroom above it.
    • The Mushroom part resembles the Mushroom Piston, which appears in advertisements within the courses and on the loading screen of the game.
  • In Mario Kart 8, the only character who doesn't have a black seat on their bike is the female Villager, who has a brown seat.
