Excitebike (1984)

Console of origin

Nintendo Entertainment System





Excitebike (エキサイトバイク Ekisaito Baiku, Excite Bike) is the brand of eponymous motorcycle originating in the NES game Excitebike, the game which this Assist Trophy is taken from. In this game, the Excitebike drivers must simply go through various obstacles and do a certain amount of laps in order to win the race. "Excitebike" also appears in the Nintendo 64 game Excitebike 64 and in the WiiWare game Excitebike: World Rally.

It has made cameo appearances in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


Excitebikes are, for the most part, typical motorcycles that are used in Excitebike racing competitions. As they are used for sport, they have very high specifications and can perform high-profile maneuvers such as launching high in the sky off ramps. Each excitebike is equipped with a turbo-boosting system which allows it to speed up to very high speeds, but puts a strain on the overheating engine if used for extended periods of time. On each racetrack are icons that instantly cool down the engine if the player rides over them, though.
