The Master Cycle is a recurring Item in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Location and Uses

Mario Kart 8

The Master Cycle is Link's signature vehicle in Mario Kart 8. Its shape is based on a Horse, while the colors and design heavily resembles that of the Master Sword's. It draws its watercolor style from Skyward Sword and bears Hylian Shields on its sides. The Master Cycle can be complemented with the Triforce Tires and the Hylian Kite. The Master Cycle is a sport bike, which consequently means that it is capable of inward drifting.

The Master Cycle is available as part of the The Legend of Zelda × Mario Kart 8 DLC pack in Mario Kart 8. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Master Cycle is randomly unlocked after collecting enough Coins.
