2022 Yamaha TW200

The 2022 Yamaha TW200: A Small-But-Mighty All-Rounder


How do you offer a capable and comfortable small dual-sport motorcycle without making the seat too high? Just ask Yamaha, whose TW200 seems designed specifically to answer that question. It might look a little different from other bikes in its class, with those fat tires and the big, square headlight—but it’s all part of a winning formula that this Japanese bike maker has been following for years.

The power here comes from a 196cc air-cooled four-stroke single-cylinder engine, delivering 16 HP and 11 lb-ft of torque. You get most of that in the bottom end of the rpm-range, which should be unsurprising since this bike is made to rip around dirt and gravel roads as well as paved surfaces. Other features include big fat tires, a low seat, an electric starter, an automatic cam chain tensioner, and an engine counterbalancer. Yamaha wants you to have fun, not get in over your head with maintenance.

No significant changes to last year’s model, but this one comes in the same Radical Grey color scheme as the new XT250, giving it a touch of class to contrast its natural grit. A compact off-roader that fits snugly into the 2022 lineup of Yamaha motorcycles, it’ll fit just as comfortably in your garage for just $4,799 USD/$5,499 CAD.
