Hey Guys, I'm looking at a 2007 TW200 on craigslist for $2950, 2500 miles. Would there be any benefit to just shell out the $4500 for a 2017? This would be my first bike besides tooling around on xr100's a long time ago so i'm pretty clueless about yamaha. :)

Welcome to the forum. If it has been well taken care of and you are happy with the price, used is good! Around my area, it seems like used ones are hard to find.

Shell for a new one :D. I couldn't find a deal like that when I wanted one so I bought a new one on Holloween 2013 before the 14's came out for $3995 plus sales tax, title and registration fee.

I paid $3400 for a 2010 T-Dub with 2260 miles that was so clean the tire knobbies were not even dirty. To me, that price was worth it, because I adore it.

I payed $3100 for a '13 with 1700 miles but it was a trainer bike with a little character. We are using it as a training bike as well so that was not an issue.

Still looking for a second one at a good deal. It seems like anything between 2007-2013 fetches about the same money with under 3000 miles. Biggest issue to look for is if someone has really abused it, or not properly stored it causing carb to require more attention...

Happy hunting!

Go Now with 25 hundred dollar bills to wave in his face!!! Those extra's add up to a lot of $$$. He might not take it, so you might have to pay closer to what he wants, but it's worth it with the extras. :D

Try to get it for $2500. However, if you can not, it will still be worth $2000.00 10 years from now. Heck, a good 1995 TW will bring $1,500.

On the other hand, if you are not in a hurry, if you wait, and you are lucky, they pop up for less than $1,000.00 now and then, depending on your market. I and a friend found a good 1998 for $750.00 two winters ago. In Montana.

Get creative where you look. For instance, I have noticed a lot of the good deals reported by forum members come from the Southwest. Old guys retire, move to Arizona, New, Mexico, Texas, etc. buy a TW and poop around on it for a few years and, if he doesn't sell it first, the widow gives it away. Watch Craiglist for those areas. Or, in the retirement areas near your town.

yup, its still available, i think its an awesome bike for NC. i don't think he wants to come down in price because he doesn't really need to sell... moved from oregon and just hasn't been riding.

Decided to go new!! still getting used to the clutch, i guess it will break in eventually.
How many miles do you have? Mine started feeling a little better around 300 miles. The tw clutches are a little crummy feeling in my opinion though.
