After 43 legendary years, Yamaha has stated that their 2021 “Final Edition” will indeed be the last we see of the SR400–and will only be available in Japan.
The 270+ pound TW200 intends to tackle tougher pavement and harder highways than the average city cycle, which is a blessing when you’re coping with streets that need maintenance, or a commute that goes from rougher, rural spots into the urban sprawl.
Originally coughed up in the ’70’s, then reworked and sold overseas, the VanVan 200 has finally brought its worldly wiles back to the west.
It lets you hop into and out of dense traffic, using a 313 cc engine that feels good on the go, but not overpowered.
