..2007 Yamaha TW225E...
« on: December 20, 2007, 11:56:31 am »
Trailrider, you must hate me by now. Presenting the 2007 Yamaha TW225E (plus 20th year Anniversary editions). Power 13kW @ 7500rpm, torque 18Nm @ 6000rpm out of the box.

And???

DR200SE: Lighter (108kg)
stronger (15kW)
bigger tank (13l)
decent tire sizes (2.75 or 3.00 / 21 and 4.10 / 18)
Looks like a real DS and not like a wind up toy. BTW: looks: You should loose your mudflaps (avatar). Gives you at least +10km/h top speed

I know, I know. But there are people out there and on this forum that loves the TW200. So, I thought I'd surprise them with this. My DR is already mudflap-less, but I'll make my avatar speedier too.

Do you manage 140 kph now?

TW's a great bike.
Very popular with farmer's and ordinary folk who aren't real bikers, but just like playing in the dirt or the sand dunes on weekends.

Surprisingly plenty of people (over at advrider) have used them on long off road tours.
It's not just a mode of transport, it's a fking adventure!

Where do you dig up this stuff??? I never find the new bikes first. :-\

The round light looks very retro but I prefer the rectangular light and fairing.

LeCap my bike also has less power and a smaller tank than the DR200, but it looks sooooo much better... ;)

There is something about it that I really like... can a photoshop guru put a high fender conversion on the pic? I bet then it will look like the mutts nuts!
