Long lasting, reliable engine, incredible traction, electric power start and full street equipment let you switch comfortably from on to off-road and back again.

Break your next trail with the TW200, a unique machine that appeals to beginner and veteran riders alike.

The gritty 4-stroke engine delivers smooth, reliable torque with the push of the electric starter button. Running around town or heading to your favorite campsite or fishing spot the TW200 is always as ready to go anywhere as you are. With a low seat height, superior handling, and unique wide tires, you can get there with confidence and have big-time fun along the way.

Those big fat tires deliver great traction and rider comfort over a wide range of terrain, and they make the TW200 the most distinctive-looking dual purpose machine around. A low seat and compact chassis help inspire confidence in anybody who rides the TW200, making it one of the most user-friendly on/off-road bikes on the market. Electric start and full street equipment mean it is super convenient to ride the TW200 just about wherever you need to go. The strong-pulling 196cc air-cooled, four-stroke single delivers torquey low and mid range power perfectly suited to off road exploring while the maintenance free CDI ensures precise, reliable spark for peak engine performance at all rpm. Standard instrumentation includes a speedometer with odometer and resettable trip meter as well as indicator lights for neutral, high beam and turn signals.
