The Zip Zip (known as the Rapide in Europe and Oceania) is a bike in Mario Kart Wii that can only be used by medium-sized characters. Like the Bit Bike, it resembles a chopper. The emblem is located on the sides of the bike. This bike does not have a kart counterpart for the medium size class. In fact, no karts have stats similar to this bike's, but the Zip Zip's stats are relative to that of the Phantom, despite still being considered an Offroad-type vehicle. It is one of four vehicles that doesn't have a counterpart, the other three being the Phantom, Classic Dragster, and Piranha Prowler.
The Zip Zip can be unlocked by winning the 100cc Lightning Cup or by playing 2,100 races.
The Zip Zip features great off-road, enabling it to take off-road shortcuts without any major speed loss. Additionally, the Zip Zip has the best off-road stat not only in its size class, but also out of all drift type bikes in the game. If Yoshi rides the Zip Zip, it ties with the Magikruiser for having the best off-road stat in the game. It also features good handling and shares the same drift stat as the Spear. However, unlike the Super Blooper and Dolphin Dasher, it is slower than the Standard Kart M and Standard Bike M, but has a better Mini-Turbo. Its weight is slightly below average (tied with the Tiny Titan), and its drifting (also tied with the Tiny Titan) is rather low. Its acceleration is tied with the Magikruiser.
Compared to the Dolphin Dasher, this bike features higher acceleration, handling, drift, off-road, and mini-turbo, but has lower speed and weight. Also, unlike the Dolphin Dasher, which has inside drifting properties, the Zip Zip performs outside drifting.
Compared to the Phantom, it is slower and lighter, but has slightly better handling, drift, acceleration, offroad and mini-turbo.
