The Phantom has extremely good offroad capabilities, making it a good choice on Shy Guy Beach, where the preferred racing line makes extensive use of offroad portions of the map. The bike has a decent amount of weight to it and good handling. Its speed-related stats are average, and has a terrible drift stat on top of the already wide outside drift, making the bike poor on maps with sharp turns.

The Phantom features average mini-turbo. Its best stat is the off-road stat, which rivals that of the Dolphin Dasher. Its handling, weight, speed, and acceleration are also good. However, the bike suffers from the worst drifting in the game and drifts outwards, making it difficult for beginners to control the bike.

Also, Bowser's and Dry Bowser's Phantom have their handles positioned differently than the other Phantoms.
