Overview

Aimed at making the naked bike segment more competent, Yamaha introduced TFX 150 in the country. The bike not only possess aggressive styling, it also features more traction and a different riding position. The bike reflects the company’s latest design philosophy in an effective manner which is powered by an entirely new engine. Launched last year at the 2016 Yamaha Motor Show, the TFX 150 is one of the most powerful bikes in its segment. Besides being a street commuter, it is a complete package for fulfilling your extreme adventure deeds as well. The bike has impressed the consumers in Thailand and Indonesia, and now, its potential will be tested on the Philippines’ roads.

Design

The first thing that you will notice about the TFX 150 is its wide handlebar, which Yamaha has incorporated to push upright riding position that helps in improved maneuverability. Even the digital instrument cluster is one of its kind in the segment, which features full inverted LCD speedometer that displays riding information through adjustable backlight system. The sharp LED headlamps clearly reflects the aggressive characteristics of the bike while the sharp graphics further complement its fierce nature.

One of the noticeable features of the naked bike is its well sculpted tank, which is accompanied by large extensions. The rear profile is somewhat similar to R-15, which also features LED lights for better and clear visibility. The fat and thick tyres not only grants sporty character to the bike, it also aids in improved stability while tight cornering. The front is equipped with 110/70-17 tyres while the rear features 130/70-17 tyre. The bike is not only agile but also rigid enough to take on a range of terrains, kudos to its ‘Deltabox’ frame which ensures strength and handling stability. The overall aesthetics of the bike are inspired by MT-25, with a slightly compact body and sharp graphics to mark the difference.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

The newest addition to Yamaha’s lineup, The Fierce Experience (TFX) is powered by a 150cc, liquid-cooled, six-speed SOHC engine with fuel injection that is capable of delivering 12 kW maximum power at 8500 rpm and 14.3 Nm peak torque at 7500 rpm. The under cowl of the bike further helps in improving the cooling efficiency along with preventing the engine from mud splatter. As the bike weighs just 135 kg, the power-to-weight ratio is impressive and makes the TFX 150 agile.

Blue Core technology is standard across all the Yamaha’s models and TFX-150 is no exception. But, as the bike is designed for thrill and adventure, it is not an economical ride for your daily commutes. Expecting efficiency and performance hand-in-hand from TFX-150 will surely disappoint you but, Yamaha has worked hard to give decent fuel economy figures. A rider gets a mileage ranging between 40-45 kmpl with normal city riding and idle riding conditions. Off-roading and pushing the throttle hard will further push this range down and you get a mileage ranging between 35-40 kmpl.

The engine performance is reliable in most of the challenging situations and gear shifting is as swift as its elder siblings. The bike is meant for pushing and opening the throttle results in smooth power delivery up to 80-90 kmph. However, pushing beyond this limit might result in a few vibes that can be managed to an extent. The clutch action is light and the 6-speed gearbox engages with decent precision.

Braking & Safety

Though the bike is inspired by its elder siblings, the Yamaha TFX-150 is different in a number of ways. The most noticeable difference is the riding position it offers, it is more upright, which aims towards easy maneuverability and agility. To control this nimble bike, Yamaha has equipped hydraulic single disc brakes, while the suspension duties are handled by 37mm Upside Down telescopic at the front and linked-type monocross at the rear.

The seat height of 805mm is not accessible for everyone and surely small riders will find difficulties in handling the bike smoothly. Whereas, the ground clearance of 165mm ensures easy tackling over bumpy roads. The wide tyres offer improved stability and make cornering easy while the seating position is comfortable for long rides along with day-to-day city commutes. In a quick and powerful bike, ABS plays an important role; unfortunately, Yamaha has skipped this in the new TFX-150, which is surely a drawback of this naked bike.

    Most impressive full LED headlamp and the fully digital istrument console.

    I was looking for a naked roadster which had the sharpness and the agility of a supoersport, but in a more friendly daily usable package. With this very reason in my mind, I chose to buy the TFX 150. Since the bike has its genes borrowed from the previous generation YZF R15, it felt really spot on when it comes Read More
