1989 YZE750 Ténéré (0W94)
(1989 / Racing Machine)
This was a further developed version of the 1988 factory machine YZE750 (0W93) developed after the race-specialized Motorsports Development Division took over development responsibilities. Further maturation was brought to continued features like the lightweight, compact DOHC, 5-valve, single-cylinder engine that placed emphasis more on overall balance than top speed, a 3-section fuel tank for reduced influence on handling resulting from changes in fuel level and a side stand that doubled as a tool compartment among others. Riding this model, Franco Picco just missed the win at Dakar after a long and fierce battle for the lead, finally placing 2nd.
