01. Unrivalled power
An all-new engine ensures the TE 150 comfortably retains its position as the leading small-capacity enduro machine on the market. To make the TE 150 even easier to ride, almost every component has been refined to improve torque with the introduction of a Keihin throttle body delivering stronger power higher in the rev range when compared to the previous generation. Assembled with the latest technical innovations throughout, the TE 150 engine delivers the ultimate in 2-stroke engine performance.
The new cylinder features a 58 mm bore and with the introduction of Throttle Body injection (TBI), an innovative electronic exhaust control system manages the simultaneous opening of the lateral ports and main exhaust port for maximum power delivery. Together with a machined finish on the upper contour of the exhaust port, improved engine performance is instantly noticeable.
The TE 150 uses a newly developed 39 mm throttle body with dual injectors positioned to optimise flow for a more immediate throttle response and improved rideability. Idle is controlled by the throttle valve, with one low load injector and one top feed injector ensuring maximum performance. Additionally, a new throttle position sensor (TPS) offers improved cold starting with the throttle valve now pivoting on ball bearings for a smoother throttle action.
An electronic oil pump feeds vital 2-stroke oil into the engine. It is located just below the oil tank and feeds the oil via the throttle body, meaning the oil is only mixed with air at this stage. The pump is controlled by the EMS and delivers the optimal amount of oil according to the current RPM and engine load. The oil tank is connected to a filler hose which runs through the upper tube of the frame to a filler cap conveniently located for easy refills.
Designed to be low in weight without sacrificing strength or reliability, the new crankcases are made using a high-pressure die-cast production process to create a thin-wall design. To centralise engine mass, the shaft arrangements are precisely positioned to harness rotating masses at the ideal centre of gravity.
Tailored specifically for the TE 150 using an innovative 3D design process, the header pipe ensures unrestricted performance and offers improved ground clearance to reduce the risk of impact damage out on the trail. The muffler also features an aluminium mounting bracket and advanced internal construction for excellent noise damping and weight saving.
