The Yamaha DT200 is a dual-purpose motorcycle manufactured during the 1980s, 1990s,and continues into the 2000s (decade) by the Yamaha Motor Company. Though never imported into the U.S.A., the rest of the world, including Canada, received this model. It received a redesign for 1989, and became a match for Kawasaki's KDX200 off-road machine. In Canada, the new model sold there until 1996. It continued on in South America, the Middle East, Europe,Australia, and Africa. It spawned the DT125, in two versions, as well as a WR200. Today it has been redesigned as a DT230R. Competition for the DT200R came from Suzuki's TS200RM, imported into Canada from 1993 until 1995. Honda never imported its superior CRM250 into North America. The DT200 used a liquid cooled, oil injected, (autolube) case reed inducted, Y.P.V.S. power valved, single cylinder, 2 stroke engine. As a dual-purpose bike, it was designed for on and off road use, and is street legal in Canada. The WR200 cylinder had exhaust boost ports, whereas the DT200 didn't. In addition, the DT200 had oil injection.
