I was going to read all the comments, but got bored with it... The reason is there are less dirt/dual sport bikes sold than cruiser street bikes in the U.S. The law of supply and demand. It is all a numbers game. Plus condition of the bikes. There are a lot of clapped out off roaders and they don't sell for big bucks. A good dual sport is less common than a good street bike, a good TW200 is less common than a good dual sport. Demand for a good used TW200 is likely higher per number on the market than demand for a good dual sport per number on the market and both are higher demand than the demand for a good street bike per number available. I fixed it. 250 on the brain.
