The 2020 TE 150i has been elevated to a whole new level. Husqvarna Motorcycles' innovative fuel injection technology finds its way into the lightest model in the range and the result is a combination of refined power and lightweight nimbleness that simply can't be ignored. The smooth power delivery, with the latest generation chassis and advanced WP suspension, offers a great mix of enduro-specific performance. Now, more than ever, with no need for jetting or pre-mixing fuel, combined with an electric start, the new TE 150i is quite simply the easiest way to master new trails.
The TE 150i has inherited the same fuel-injected technology from the bigger TE 250i and 300i. 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 150i 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 150i 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 150i offers further improvements in geometry and performance. This allows for improved ground clearance, making the header pipe resistant to impact out on the trail. The muffler also features a new aluminium mounting bracket, new internals and less dense packing material for improved noise damping and weight saving.
