Harnessing the ethos of a lightweight and nimble 2-stroke character, the TE 150i features the latest 2-stroke fuel injection technology, giving it all the convenience of modern 4-strokes at a fraction of the weight. The TE 150i is fitted with an electric starter as standard for easy starting in challenging situations. Additionally, the new chassis offers precise flex characteristics, and in combination with WP suspension offers advanced handling characteristics and comfort in the most challenging conditions.
Using the latest 2-stroke fuel injection technology, the TE 150i has all the convenience of modern 4-strokes eliminating the need to premix fuel or adjust jetting at different altitudes. The engine uses specific shaft arrangements designed to harness the rotating mass of the engine in the ideal centre of gravity. The lightweight and compact engine provides a powerful enduro specific power delivery while maintaining the inherent low-cost maintenance of a 2-stroke.
- Latest generation 2-stroke – Fuel injection, Powerful, light and compact
- Mass-centralisation – significant benefits in handling and maneuverability
Cylinder and piston
The cylinder has a 58 mm bore, which features an innovative power valve design that delivers controllable power throughout the RPM range. The piston is designed to perfectly match the optimised combustion chamber contour delivering the highest level of 2-stroke performance.
Additionally, the cylinder features two inlet positions located on the transfer ports at the rear of the cylinder where a pair of fuel injectors are mounted. The injectors deliver the fuel downwards into the transfer port, which guarantees excellent atomisation with the air travelling upward to the combustion chamber. This ensures a more efficient combustion resulting in reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
- Cylinder and piston – revised combustion chamber contour
- Fuel injection – increased efficiency and reduced emissions
With a 54.5 mm stroke, the crankshaft is perfectly balanced to reduce vibrations. The weighted flywheel attached to the crankshaft provides abundant torque and controllable enduro specific power while the larger alternator provides all the power needed for the EFI system.
- Lightweight crankshaft – very little vibration
- Larger alternator – increased electrical power to power EFI system
The crankcases are manufactured using a high-pressure die cast production processes resulting in a thin wall thickness and minimal weight.
To centralise mass, the layout features a shaft arrangement precisely positioned to harness rotating masses at the ideal centre of gravity. The reed block features optimised carbon reeds for improved sealing.
- High pressure die-cast production process – thin walls resulting in light weight
- Shaft arrangement – ideal mass centralization
- New reed valves – better sealing
Oil tank & pump
The TE 150i features an electronic oil pump, which feeds vital 2-stroke oil into the engine to keep it lubricated. The pump is located just below the oil tank and feeds the oil via the throttle body meaning the oil is not mixed with the fuel, eliminating the need for pre-mixing as on traditional 2-stroke engines. The pump is controlled by the EMS and delivers the optimal amount of oil according to the current RPM and engine load. This reduces waste as well as excessive smoke being transmitted from the exhaust.
The oil tank is located beneath the fuel tank and is connected to a filler hose, which runs through the upper member of the frame to a filler cap conveniently located for easy refills. The tank capacity is 0.7 litre and is fitted with a sensor which illuminates a warning visible to the rider when the oil needs to be refilled.
- Oil pump and tank – convenient solution, eliminates pre-mix
The TE 150i is fitted with a PANKL 6-speed wide range gearbox. The enduro specific ratios are tailored to the 150cc power delivery while an innovative gear level reduces dirt build up ensuring perfect operation in all conditions.
- PANKL 6-speed gearbox – specific enduro gearing
- Innovative gear lever – prevents dirt build up ensuring precise control
The TE 150i features a new DS (Diaphragm Steel) clutch. The exclusive characteristics of this system include a single diaphragm steel pressure plate instead of traditional coil springs. The clutch basket is a single-piece CNC machined steel component that allows the use of thin steel liners and contributes to the compact design of the engine.
- DS clutch – excellent action and durability
