The Spear and its stats
First Appearance Mario Kart Wii (2008)
Unlockable Yes

The Spear, also known as the Torpedo outside North America, is a heavy bike in Mario Kart Wii.

Information

The Spear is unlocked by unlocking 12 Expert Staff Ghosts in Time Trials, winning 200 WFC races (now impossible) or by playing 3,600 games

The Spear takes on an aerodynamic appearance. The driver's emblem is on the front and the character's colors adorn the face of the Spear.

Advantages

The Spear has one of the best top speeds in the game and when used with skill and Funky Kong, it has been known to win many world and regional record time trials, particularly for courses that don't have tight turns.

Disadvantages

The Spear is unique in which it has the most shortfalls in the game for a bike, having bad handling, acceleration, off road, and drift.

The drifting patterns of the Spear are somewhat similar to the Flame Runner. However, the drifting is not as sharp and timing is required to be able to drift as effectively.
