The B Dasher is one of Mario's karts in Mario Kart DS, an unlockable kart in Mario Kart 7, and a downloadable kart in Mario Kart 8.

The kart is shaped like a Formula 1 car and is white and red. A similar kart appears in Mario Kart Wii, called the Sprinter. (Or B-Dasher MK 2).

In Mario Kart DS, it offers an advantage in weight and items, and a disadvantage in none.

In Mario Kart 7, it offers good speed and handling, but bad acceleration and off-road.

In Mario Kart 8, it offers good speed and weight, but bad acceleration and traction. Its stats are identical with the Mach 8, Sports Coupe, Circuit Special, Gold Standard, and P-Wing.


Mario Kart DS

The B Dasher makes its first appearance in Mario Kart DS. This is one of Mario's karts, the others being the Standard MR and Shooting Star.

It is one of the heaviest karts in the game, and its weight is tied with the ROB-BLS. It is unlocked from the start.

Mario Kart 7

It reappears in Mario Kart 7 as an unlockable kart part, having little changes to its appearance from its original iteration.

The B Dasher is tied with the Blue Seven and Bolt Buggy for having the lowest acceleration of all kart bodies. Fortunately, it's tied with the Blue Seven, Bruiser, and Zucchini for having the highest speed of all kart bodies, and it's the fastest kart body to have a positive handling boost.

A CPU-controlled Mario is more likely to be seen driving on this body.

Mario Kart 8

The B Dasher once again returns in Mario Kart 8 as one of the vehicles in The Legend of Zelda × Mario Kart 8 downloadable content pack.

When it comes to stats, it is good in speed and weight, but bad in acceleration and traction. It shares the same exact stats with the Mach 8, Sports Coupe, Circuit Special, Gold Standard, and P-Wing.

  • The name B Dasher may be a reference to the classic Mario games in which the B button was used to make the player move faster, as well as it adds a bit of speed when using the kart.
  • The box art of Mario Kart DS features Mario performing a handstand on the B Dasher.
  • The kart resembles the real Honda RA272 Formula 1 car.
