2017 Yamaha TW200

2017 Yamaha TW200 Buyer's Guide | Specs & PriceA much-misunderstood dual sport motorcycle, the 2017 Yamaha TW200 is the ultimate go-anywhere bike. With its fat ATV-like tires, the TW200 gets as much suspension from the high-profile rubber as it does from its old-school non-adjustable, shortish travel suspension.

The secret to the TW200 is to not be in a hurry. If you’re patient, it will take you almost anywhere you care to go in the dirt. The engine has torque, the gearing is enabling, the Bridgestone Trail Wing tires get more traction than you can imagine (that’s a 180mm rear), and the seat height makes the TW200 it possible to ride the toughest trails.

The Yamaha TW200 also works as a fun street bike, though speed and handling are limited by the dirt-focused design.
