Those familiar with the latest instalment in the Mario Kart series will know that one of the available vehicles is the 'Yoshi Bike' - a motorbike shaped as Mario's long-time dino companion, obviously. As cool as it looks in the game (if that's the kind of thing that floats your boat), it looks even better in real-life. Twitter user Late Riser managed to witness a customised bike in the streets of Osaka, Japan, resembling Mario Kart 8's Yoshi Bike.
The bike looks very impressive due to the amount of detail that's been put into it. One of the wing mirrors has Mario's signature 'M', the seat and inner-wheels are red to represent Yoshi's saddle and shoes, and there's even a tongue emerging from Yoshi's mouth which seems to be holding a can of 556 industrial lubricant. Let's not forget the orange spikes and Bullet Bill footrests!
There's not much more to say about this, so have a marvel of the images Late Riser has provided. Would you like to see the creator of this bike produce more Mario-themed bikes? If so, who would you want to see next?

I couldn't tell if the first pic was actually MK8 or not because of the strange quality and the bright green in the sun sort of looks like something the WiiU would produce.
Oh goodness, that's scary.
i think i hear that a few days ago via facebook!
This really has been a slow news day
The tongue is weird. But the rest is awesome! Looks like really precise and clean work as well.
@GLA : Its sunday.
Cool. Speaking of Mario Kart, I remade three tracks from the series in this Super Mario Maker level:
Mario Kart GP (track remakes)
The main level is based on DS Airship Fortress and GCN Bowser's Castle, but Mute City from Mario Kart 8 is also very well hidden as a secret. Can you find it? (hint: use the cannons above the flame burners)
"One of the wing mirrors" should be "The one wing mirror"
Lol someone advertises their Mario Maker level...
Thats pretty epic !
Nice..What color is their parachute? lol
44, eh? Is that another Mercedes Ninty-related PR attempt?
Edit: just noticed the writer surname...Joshi. Obviously.
I wanna ride this to school every day.
Now, the owner should just add the moving arms and hands and it would be perfect (well, sort of, the tongue doesn't give a sense of stability...)
@Dankykong Your avatar is Goemon. I like you. MAKE HIM HAPPEN FOR SMASH.
That thing is pretty damn cool and slightly creepy.
