It has the correct part number but it does appear to have been modified. Not sure if what I see is the muffler burned out rusted or cut out just past the stinger but every TW I have owned had the turned down stinger like you other bike in the background. It also looks like your stinger is melting your blinker light housing so I would call it a failed attempt modification. Around $100 gets you a new muffler from partzilla.com but you have to be sure you are getting the correct one for your year model because I do know that at some point they did change the placement of the mounting bracket on the frame. TW Brian would probably know the exact date of that change.
You may wish to confirm that muffler will pass a spark arrester inspection. Not sure if compliance is important in N.Y. but Forest Service takes that stuff seriously out west where things are a bit more flammable.
I am interested to know if this bike is louder or quieter than your TW with the original unmodified muffler. There is a bit of science involved in exhaust systems and the back pressure they create so just opening the end tube might allow the exhaust gasses to escape faster but could also change the geometry of the system itself. Members here who go to the aftermarket mufflers from DG and FMF often find they have to do internal carb jet changes and adjustments.

Im considering buying a new TW200 as my very first motorcycle. The price point meets my budget (max I can spend)

I was eventually going to change the headlight to a round one with a stone guard, some others here have already done it and it looks fantastic. So I'm going to take some parts I had set aside a while back for my KZ550 rebuild and throw some twin dominator headlights on (swapping out halogens for...
So I'v shelled out the R 1 495 ($ 100.00) for a Shinko E 700 130/80-18 to replace the Death Wing on my TW. Reason behind it is that we don't get a wider than 3,5 in Shinko SR 241 locally. The death wing has about 4mm (0.15in) thread left on it, so it needs replacement any way.
I prefer the wider...
