    TW 200 - Where to get one in the middle east?

    Hey guys,

    I have been eager to get a TW 200 for years. I have the spare cash (and have been given the go ahead by the boss) so I can get one. So off I go to the Yamaha showroom in the place I currently live, Muscat, Oman. They don't sell them and will not order them in.

    So a few months go by and now my work circumstance change again and I will be moving to Dubai UAE in September. So I am thinking, sweet, much bigger country I'm sure they will stock them or order them in. But after a few calls I find out they won't.

    Long story short, how the hell do I buy or get a TW 200 in Dubai?

    Also, as a side note, how do they fare in 120+ degrees being air cooled?

    Cheers for any replies in advance

    Piece of cake - seems to be a habit of customising going out out there that would give Japan a run for its money - the first link will give you an idea of the market .......

    Cheers, I was hoping for an un butchered one. I have tried that site and dubizzle.com and that seems to be the only one in the country.

    You would think Yamaha would order one in for me..

    Same position in the UK - had to find a dealer who bought at auction in Japan, filled a shipping container, and imported second hand

    As to finding an un-butchered one - look at the custom car scene in the UAE - crazy money. You have to figure those guys are only interested in city running - not the desert (where you would need more range than the tank on a TW can give you).

    Once you understand that - you can see why they customise the hell out anything .......

    I want one to mess around with when I head out to the desert or up the mountains. Planning on getting a tow hitch carrier for a Pajero. Or the Land Rover if I keep it in the move.

    Thanks, I hope it will be....

    Has anyone any experience shipping one? Would it be cheaper from japan or US? Or has anyone a contact at yamaha where I may be able to import one directly?

    Thanks in advance
