    Yamaha's MSRP for a 2018 TW is $4599.

    Does anyone know the MSRP was for a 1987 in 1987 as per Yamaha?

    In 1987 they sold for 1,599.00.

    Six years ago when I bought mine, I paid 1,600.00 for a used one with 1800 miles on it.

    The new prices hold up the value of the used ones. Mine has very high mileage but I wouldn't let it go cheap. It runs great looks good and with gas prices high again it is economical. Mine is a 1993. I believe I got it in 1995 with 200 miles on it. Tax, title, license, helmet and TW manual and delivered to my house was right at $2200.00

    Wow I paid a fair amount more than you for my 1987, I thought I stole the thing for 1,850! Either way it was worth every penny and I regret nothing! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, amiright?

    And then I probably spent five grand stripping it down to the frame and building it back up... Haha

    It’s kinda complicated because you have to include the Yen vs the Dollar, but this is your starting point

    A few weeks ago I made a barter with a friend for his low miles, garage kept 1987 TW200. It needs a battery, intake boot, tires and chain (and some other shit of course!). Apparently he just pulled it out of the garage and was about to GIVE IT AWAY to his brother-in-law until I inquired about it. I didn't even get to make an offer and was told $500 takes it! My name ain't "Kelly", so I can't comment on the actually value of the motorcycle. But I feel like I scored a peach for peanuts!
