1986 XT600 Ténéré (0U26)
(1986 / Racing Machine)
This was a Dakar Rally factory machine with a specially designed frame mounting an engine based on that of the production off-road model XT600. After debuting in 1983 as a modified version of the XT600, the performance of the engine and suspension was upgraded as speeds in the rally grew faster every year. Meanwhile, know-how was fed back into the machine development to achieve the durability, serviceability and comfort necessary for long-distance racing in the desert. In '86, Thierry Charbonnier placed 4th riding the machine on display.
