The Varmint is an unlockable bike body that appears in Mario Kart 8. It is an all-terrain motorcycle that appears to be a bike version of Mario Kart 7's Bolt Buggy and the Pipe Frame, appearance-wise. Unlike the Pipe Frame, the bike has a four-stroke engine and its engine sound is a higher-pitched version of The Duke.

It shares its stats with the Standard Bike, Pipe Frame, Flame Rider, Wild Wiggler, W 25 Silver Arrow, and City Tripper.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a CPU Princess Daisy, Wario, or Donkey Kong can be seen riding this with the Hot Monster Wheels on occasion
