So, I have done some searching on Yamaha websites world wide and I have come to find out, that the TW's are disappearing... So what is up with this? I feel like Yamaha is getting rid of the TW, anyone else seeing this happen? Anyone over sea's finding out that TW's are not longer being sold? If they get rid of the TW, my next bike will be Honda CRF250L...
I feel sad if the TW is gone... Like I am loosing my best friend...
2010 TW - Easton bars & clamps, cyclerack (black), jimbo shield, acerbis steel gaurds, atv seat pad, custom skid plat, more upgrades soon
The Japanese motorcycle industry is hurting. I might just mean they can't afford to run a factory in Singapore anymore.
As I opined in this thread, I believe that the environmental regulations will either force Yamaha to move the TW into the fuel injection world...or kill it. I, personally, would love them to engineer the bike with EFI and keep pumping it out for years and years. I am starting to suspect, with all of the evidence that you all are finding, that we may be seeing the end. I was saddened to see the TW missing from the large Yamaha showing at the International Motorcycle Show in Seattle recently. I hope that I am wrong, but I guess we will know this fall.

Needs some modern refinements. And one more gear. Add EFI to the current engine. Plus a few color options beside white. I still think its a solid bike in the lineup.
