Like the Suzuki VanVan, the Yamaha TW200 has remained virtually unchanged since the 80s. While the model is more of a dual sport than a proper road bike, the TW actually has a reputation for doing well on pretty much any types of surface, and for being immortal—it just won’t die.
The TW takes the term “fat tire” to a whole new level with its balloon-looking rear rubber. This allows the TW to be the gnarly little off-road warrior it’s has become over the course of the last 30 years, since Shinji Kazama conquered the North Pole on a then brand-new TW. Granted, the small 196cc mill has its limits, however, the TW easily makes up for it in versatility and fun payoff.
Pros: immortal, versatile
Cons: underpowered, tiny gas tank
