Description

1975 Yamaha RD200
Registration no. not registered
Frame no. 397200963
Engine no. 397200963

Although in a capacity class dominated by mundane ride-to-work bikes, Yamaha's sporty RD200 was guaranteed to appeal to the commuter determined to have some fun on the way to the office. Like all Yamaha two-stroke twins, the RD200 was a willing performer, its 22bhp capable of propelling the nimble lightweight to over 85mph. And like its YCS3/YCS5 predecessors, the RD employed a combined electric starter/generator. Precise and predictable handling, a lively motor, strong brakes and reasonable fuel economy (for a two-stroke) were just a few of its characteristics that appealed to Bike magazine back in 1974. This unrestored example shows is exceptionally low mileage of only 757 and has the all important matching frame and engine numbers. All taxes have been paid, a NOVA declaration completed and the machine comes with a US title so UK registration is straightforward.
