About the 2010 Yamaha TW 200

Backed up by the air-cooled 196cc four-stroke single-cylinder engine, the bike wasn’t a blast, but it surely got the job done each and every time, something that radically contributed at making a big name out of the TW200 designation.

Before taking a brake from being produced in 1991, there were no changes made to the bike. But a decade later, Yamaha decided that it was time to revamp the funny looking thing and that implied a series of changes that brought it up to date, but retained the essential. An electric starter now made life easier on it, a disc front brake made emergency braking safer and the CV-type carburetor got the best out of that small thumper. Also, a 55 watt headlight replaced the previous 40 watt one so that the bike would light up its future days.
