The Yamaha XT 600 was an all-purpose motorcycle manufactured by Yamaha from 1984 until 2003 in several different versions. The bike could handle both paved and unpaved roads and represented a significant improvement over the 1975 Yamaha XT 500 model.

In 1984, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer introduced the Yamaha XT 600 as a replacement for the XT 550. The bike featured design changes but also a downgrade of the fuel tank, shrinking it to 11.5 liters from a long-range 30-liter tank used by the 600 ZL Teneres model.

In the visual department, the bike had standard features, such as a high-mounted front fender, a small rectangular headlight integrated into a small front cowl with a small wind deflector, a one-piece dual seat, a small luggage rack, a single exhaust system half-covered by a fairing, an engine plate, and wire-spoke wheels.

A telescopic fork on the front and a single shock absorber on the rear handled the bike's suspension system, while a 267 mm disc on the front and a 150 mm drum unit on the rear dealt with the bike's stopping performance.

The 1984 Yamaha XT 600 had its heartbeat set by a 595cc four-stroke single-cylinder air-cooled engine that delivered an output power of 45 hp with maximum strength at 6,500 rpm and 50 Nm (37 lb-ft) torque at 5,500 rpm.
