Here's the manufacturer's website - http://www.sachsbikes.com.au/

It comes in 50cc and 125cc - 50cc is CVT while the 125 has a four speed manual transmission. I'll take the 125 if I get one sometime in the future

GoKarts USA has the 125 version for $2695 on sale - normally $2995

that thing is super cool, about as minimalist as you can be.

kinda reminds me of a late 1990's or early 2000's canondale/specialized dual suspension mountain bike with an engine.


looks fun, and would be kick ass if they make dirt tires in that size. i mean, you could take that thing anywhere, even if you had to carry it over some stuff

They do make offroad tires for it, and whatever you do, DO NOT look up
the madass videos on youtube.

MadAss, BMW GS, Harley, etc. - I drool over quite a few of the bikes on here...





For some strange reason I keep coming back to the TW200. I've already got a bike that's handled everything the street and interstate have thrown at it and the TW looks like it would be just about perfect for learning to ride dirt. I'm not interested in speed, I just want to ride trails and enjoy scenery. It's also just got a look that seems to have some character to it and I can imagine having some real fun with a few cans of Krylon

The fact that it's street legal, would be good in town, and I'd be able to ride it to the trails makes an inexpensive used example a serious contender for my next bike Of course, with a daughter on the way it would make a pretty nice training bike for her when she gets older if she wants to learn to ride

Keep the air pressure low in the rear tire when off-road in bumpy stuff... that big tire tends to bounce when over inflated.

Also, watch out for what us Cajuns call "Gumbo Mud"... that's the really stick stuff... it tends to clog up the between the front tire and fender causing the front tire to push REALLY bad like.

Other than those two items... that is one AWESOME bike!!! And that engine is bullet proof!!

I KNOW the feeling...

I just bought mine a few weeks ago... Posted about it back on page 98 of this thread. And in another thread I explained my rationale for buying it.

I am needing something I can carry more stuff. I am looking at a connie and a tdm.... and as always something sporty powered is calling me so a buell st3 is also on my list of legitimate wants right now.

its ok to like something built on the sportster platform. Its a great motor even if it was made by the MC.
