    2021 Yamaha TW200: Crafted For Your Next Off-Road Adventure​


    The 2021 Yamaha TW200 is the continuation of a strange little dual-sport that comes out of the Japanese manufacturer. It has been in production since 1987, and is odd because it wears oversized tires that are obviously designed for trail riding and rough, rocky terrain… yet it is street legal, and is marketed as more as a street bike than an off road bike.

    The beating heart of the TW200 is a 196cc 2 valve single that outputs 16 HP and 11 lb-ft of torque. In fact, that same engine has been used since the bike’s introduction, with the only change to it being an electric starter being added in 2001 and the kick-starter being removed. Otherwise, what you buy today is the same basic platform that has been around going on 30 plus years.

    The other major engine modification was the introduction of a counterbalancer inside the engine to reduce vibrations through the frame and into the rider. Apart from that, the 2021 TW200 is another of those dual-sport bikes that is at home on the road and on the dirt, although Yamaha themselves state that it’s meant more for the road than dirt.

    The 2021 Yamaha TW200 starts at $4,699 USD / $5,399 CAD.
