01. Ultra lightweight punch
The TE 150 has inherited the same fuel-injected technology from the bigger TE 250 and 300. This adds the convenience of a 4-stroke engine by eliminating the need to premix fuel or adjust jetting for altitude. The engine also uses specific shaft arrangements, which are designed to harness the rotating mass of the engine for nimble handling. This, among other developments, makes it a lightweight and compact engine providing usable enduro-specific power while maintaining the low-cost maintenance of a 2-stroke.
Cylinder and piston
The TE 150 features a cylinder with a 58 mm bore and an innovative power valve design. This allows the lively 150 cc engine to deliver controllable power throughout the RPM range. The piston is designed to perfectly match the contour of the combustion chamber, delivering the highest level of 2-stroke performance. Additionally, the cylinder features injectors mounted at the inlet positions, which deliver the fuel downwards into the transfer port, guaranteeing excellent fuel atomisation. This ensures more efficient fuel combustion, reduced fuel consumption and improved emissions.
Designed for minimal weight, the crankcases on the TE 150 engine feature a thin-wall design. To centralise mass, the shaft arrangements are precisely positioned to harness rotating masses at the ideal centre of gravity, while improved sealing is taken care of by the reed block which features optimised carbon fibre reed petals.
Tailored specifically for each model using an innovative 3D design process, the header pipe on the TE 150 offers an advanced geometry and performance. This allows for improved ground clearance, making the header pipe resistant to impact out on the trail. The muffler also features an aluminium mounting bracket and advanced internal construction for excellent noise damping and weight saving.
