Yoshi Bike 1

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?
