The Yamaha brand has been around since 1887 when the company began manufacturing organs for Southeast Asia. As the company expanded, it entered into areas other than music, such as marine outboard motors, watercrafts, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), snowmobiles, off-road motorcycles and cruiser motorcycles. One motorcycle manufactured between the mid 1980s and the early 1990s was the DT 200R. The DT 200R was heavily marketed in European and Asian countries for the bike's reliability and ease of operation in traffic.
The engine in the Yamaha DT200 is a liquid-cooled, two-stroke single cylinder with an output power of 35 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and 17.4 feet-pounds of torque at 7,500 rpm.

The bore and stroke is 66.8 mm by 57 mm. The bike can reach a top speed of 100 mph and was made for both on- and off-road use.
