The Master Cycle is a downloadable bike in Mario Kart 8.

It is an inside drifting motorcycle based and named after the signature sword Link wields in The Legend of Zelda series, the Master Sword, and is shaped after his horse, Epona. The sides of the motorcycle feature his signature shield, the Hylian Shield.

It offers good speed and handling, but bad traction; it doesn't affect the acceleration and weight stats.

A CPU-controlled Link will occasionally use this vehicle body, paired with the Triforce Tires, and Hylian Kite as they are when combined his vehicle in the game as it is Link's vehicle when combined.


  • The design of the Master Cycle may be a reference to the Steelhorse; another type of motorcycle.
