1989 Yamaha XT600Z, 595cc. Registration number F633 GAK. Frame number 3AJ-034480. Engine number not found. Built from the success of Yamaha’s Dakar Rally bikes of the period the Tenere was born. The bike was named after a particular difficult section of the Dakar Rally in Africa. Over a decade it is estimated that 20,000 bikes were sold in France alone, some 30% of the total production. The 600s featured large overland tanks (23-28)l, large wheel travel and upgraded suspension. These were advancements in the enduro scene of the time and began a legacy that is still going strong today. The XT600Z 3AJ was the 3rd generation of the 600 Teneres and the solution to the overheating problems of the 1VJ. The most distinct changes being the addition of a full fairing enclosing twin headlamps. In some aspects, the predecessor 1VJ damaged the Tenere reputation, the 3AJ addressed the issues and improved various other areas with benefits for overland travel. GAK's MOT history shows constant use from 2007 until the last one in 2014 at 39,159 miles. After a period of time in storage, the mileage is now 39,459 and a new battery has been installed. Sold with the V5C, MOT from 12/03/2022, old MOT history, this rare and serious off roader should provide a lot of fun for the next owner.
