The Varmint is an unlockable bike in Mario Kart 8.
It is designed similarly to the Pipe Frame and the Bolt Buggy in Mario Kart 7.
It has a yellow body, with black handlebars on its side, and a brown seat, regardless of which character using it. It is Donkey Kong's signature bike for Time Trials.
It increases acceleration and handling, but decreases weight and traction. Its stats are identical with the Standard Bike, Flame Rider, Wild Wiggler, W 25 Silver Arrow, Pipe Frame, and City Tripper.
