I've purchased two in one month. One for myself and another for my bride. Both 87 models.

Tonight, MO_Tdub and I went out on my first lengthy ride on some country roads. Yea, I've got the bug.

It happens

Hers my 2003 and then found 87,
If you get lucky you will stop with the Two,
Unless one for $900 shows up running and driving,
Or that Rainbow Warrior shows up,
Or,
Or,
Good luck with the 87s,
Since you have two 87s which are peppier than the other years,
Which is peppier, The red or blue?
You're pretty lucky to have 2 from 87,
Word of mouth says they sold about 3000 of them that first year,
But judging from how many folks show up here with 87s Im led to believe that Yamaha sold about a million of them in 87 !
Happy trails,
Peter B

While 2016 was technically the 30th year the TW200s have been in production......it would be really cool if Yamaha would make the 2017 TW200 in the same RED frame as the '87 bikes came in...or some of them came in.

A nice homage to the '87s...for '17......Red framed bikes with choices of White or Black plastic bodywork on them....WITH....a kick starter on them :D
Dude...I :love_heart: my kickstarter.

Sweet rides!

Rainbow Warrior? Is that the '94 model? What's so special about them?
My wife and I are still getting adjusted to them since these are our first motorbikes. When the day comes and we're good for racing, I'll remember this post and let you know.

The Rainbow Warriors are the pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow!! It's colors everywhere! Maybe Yamaha's marketing person had a bad LSD trip and just splashed colors around. :p :tongue1:

Here's a pic of the '94 I bought.
