The Yamaha TW200 is a 196 cc single cylinder dual-sport motorcycle manufactured and marketed by the Yamaha since 1987. By virtue of its large tires, it has been compared to the 2-wheel-drive Rokon[3] and the TW200 has been called a "two-wheeled quad".[4]

A TW200 was ridden to the North Pole by Shinji Kazama in 1987.[5]
