Shooting Star (known as the Twinkle Star in Japanese and British English) is a large bike that appears in Mario Kart Wii. It is unlocked when the player completes the 100cc Star Cup in first place or by playing 1,500 games. The bike has high speed, but low acceleration and has outside Drift, making it a good choice for those who can't manage inside drift and want a lot of speed. It is also a good choice for those who have difficulty with the Rainbow Road course as you can get a lot of speed without needing drift. At top speed, the player may have to slow down to make tight turns.
