Bowser on the Spear
|Unlocking||Unlock 12 Fast Staff Ghosts in Time Trials.|
The Spear, also known as the Torpedo in PAL regions, is a bike for heavyweight characters in Mario Kart Wii. It is the fastest bike in the game, and resembles an actual torpedo missile on the front of the bike. When it performs a Wheelie, it's speed actually exceeds the Jetsetter's, making it the fastest vehicle in the game. Unfortunately, apart from Speed and Weight, its other stats are far below average, and it has the worst handling, off-road, and mini-turbo among all bikes in the game. Another downside is that, although it is an inside drifter, it does not turn very sharply, making courses such as DK's Jungle Parkway and the Bowser's Castle tracks almost impossible. The kart counterpart for this bike is the Jetsetter.
