I had a while back both a TW200 and an XT225. Very similar bikes but totally different in performance and I associated the difference to the wheels and tires alone. The TW is a much better mule but the XT was way more nimble with a lot more power and way better suspension. Between both bikes where you gain in one area you lose in another. I found if I was just going for a ride with some pavement between some nice trails the XT was the go to bike. If I was out on an adventure and loading the rack with gear for a fishing trip into the back country then the TW was what I wanted. The difference being either play or work!
