The Yoshi Bike is an unlockable sport bike body that appears in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. As its name suggests, the bike is modeled after Yoshi, with a pair of movable arms that usually extend when the racer uses the vehicle's glider. Yoshi eggs also decorate the wheels' spindles as well. The emblem is located on the sides of the bike. It has the same stats as the Sport Bike, Jet Bike, and Comet. As a result, it offers increased acceleration and handling, exchanged for lower weight and traction. The Yoshi Bike also performs inside drifting instead of outside drifting. The bike has the same concept as the Turbo Yoshi, a kart from Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, which is also modeled after Yoshi. The staff ghost for GBA Mario Circuit has Baby Mario using the Yoshi Bike with the Standard tires.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, CPU Baby Mario, Toad, and Diddy Kong are occasionally seen using this body, with Baby Mario using the Monster tires while Toad and Diddy Kong use it with the Crimson Slim tires. Additionally, the Yoshi Bike now shares its stats with the Comet, the Cat Cruiser and the Teddy Buggy instead. The 200cc staff ghost for Super Bell Subway has Blue Yoshi using the Yoshi Bike with the Blue Standard tires.
