In Canada, the new model sold there until 1993,and was then discontinued. It continued on in South America, the Middle East, Europe,Australia,and Africa. It spawned the DT125, in two versions, as well as a WR200.Today it has been redesigned as a DT230R. Competition for the DT200R came from Suzuki's TS200RM,imported into Canada in 1993, until 1995. Honda never imported it's superior CRM250 into North America. The DT200 used a liquid cooled, oil injected,( autolube) case reed inducted,Y.P.V.S. power valved, single cylinder, 2-cycle engine.

Meeting noise level requirements has never been an issue.

The DT 200 shares its engine cases with the ATV BLASTER - the blaster was an air cooled model but the crank rod and Piston are the same. In the blaster version the water pump is not installed but rough in are there, with plugs in the case.
