Smeg is that an answer or a question?
Anyway, you re right but can you try to be more specific?
There is no SD, the SR is 4 stroke, but you re very very close!
And what about the specs? It's easy really, it's 200cc water cooled, and it came of another Yamaha that wasn't a road bike.
I ve never heard of this ATV (not my speciality ), but probably the engine is the same.
Try to think simpler, like a very popular Yamaha on-off 200cc 2 stroke
BTW , this bike in the picture looks even better from close, it's very small and I hear that it is perfect for tight mountain roads
It has 35 hp and weighs only 105 kg!
Originally posted by titomike Not sure of the model, but the engine could have come from the Yamaha Blaster 200cc quad.
Nope, the Blaster is/was always air-cooled only, so I don't think that could be the same engine.
I'll guess the engine would have to be a DT200(W)R, as far as I see, that's the only 200cc 2-stroke water cooled engine that Yamaha has.
Alright, now I really want one of these!! That is an absolutely beautiful bike. I agree with Andy, if not for the mirrors and the cast wheels, it looks like it could have been made last year. I found one website that said they were Japan only and strangely enough, only 4-speed tranny!?
It's true that it was for the Japanese market only. I knew about this bike from a someone who bought it in Greece. Until recently (when EEC laws forbid direct imports from Japan) there was a big number of used Japanese bikes imported directly.
I did a little research and finally found something I could read about the bike.
On the link below you can see almost everything about the SDR.
It's in Japanese but the table with specs is clear and you can see that it has 6 speed gearbox(from the DT actually) and even the ratios and everything else.
I doubt that you can buy such a bike though, except if in your country the laws about 'approval' is really lacking.
