1991 YZE750T Super Ténéré (0WC5)
(1991 / Racing Machine)
This was a further developed version of the 1990 YZE750T (0WB8) factory machine that was based on the XTZ750 production model. Its DOHC 10-valve, 2-cylinder engine featured further development of low- to mid-rpm performance and measures to accommodate the lower quality gasoline used in some areas. No less than five of these machines were entered in the Dakar Rally, one of them carrying Stéphane Peterhansel to his first victory and Yamaha's first since 1980. In this same race, Gilles Lalay and Thierry Magnaldi finished 2nd and 3rd respectively to prove the exceptional competitive potential of the machine.
