There are four types of vehicles in Mario Kart 8. They are pretty much balanced in the game so it is all left to the customization options of the players. The vehicle types include a Kart, Bike, ATV & a Sports Bike. Then again the Bike & Sports Bike could count as one so to speak since they are mostly the same. Then you also have to take into consideration the combination of two other items being the Glider & the Tires. Make sure you find a suitable combination for your vehicle when you do race them.
