Although the TW 200 is undeniably a dual-sport motorcycle, with fat knobbyish tires and good ground clearance, it is also fully capable as an urban motorcycle—just steer clear of the freeway. Its dual-sport roots make it easy to navigate the sometimes-rugged streets you’ll find in heavily trafficked cities. Although the suspension is basic, the TW200 will take you anywhere you like off-road, as long as you’re not in a hurry.

The 2022 Yamaha TW200’s roots go back 35 years, with a front disc brake being the most significant update from the original. The TW200’s two-valve air-cooled motor is matched to a 28mm Mikuni carburetor, which means there’s a petcock and manual choke—pure retro charm. Electric starting makes the TW easy for everyone to enjoy, and don’t miss the fully analog dash.

The 2022 Yamaha TW200 is tagged with an impressively low MSRP of $4799.
