1984 Yamaha TT600 in Red

The TT 600 is an update from the old TT 500, although the engines are entirely different, the 600 featuring 4-valves on the mighty cylinder, twin carbs and an engine balancer to take out the worst of the vibes that you would naturally encounter on a single cylinder with this capacity.

Second Generation (1994 - 1996)[edit | edit source]

The Yamaha TT 600 E's off-road handling is fine, providing you stick to light trails and muddy tracks. Anything else it feels cumbersome and it’s a swine to pick up time after time.
