Never saw a TS200R in SA
« on: June 08, 2020, 05:38:39 pm »
Has anyone seen another Suzuki TS200R in SA?It is basically a bigbore RM125 road version manufactured from 1989 to 1995 .Also using autolube like the KDX200sr. I'm sure it was brought in by Mitaka in the ate 90's but surely not many. I stumble across one in a bit of a sad state..Needs a new top end and bearings but at least it is complete! Most parts is discontinued but piston etc can be obtained from alibaba.

Mine is also white and blue.

A cousin of mine had one.  White in color.  Not for long though - engine seized and he could not find parts to fix it.  Think he sold the bike 'as-is'.

Mine is also white and blue.

It was actually based on the TS125R and the RGV125 , there was also an RGV200 , only ever came in as a grey import just like the TS200R
