Yamaha last Sunday launched the TFX street motorcycle at the Yamaha Rev Hall display held at SM Mall of Asia’s Music Hall. Promising its riders “The Fierce Experience,” the TFX is the newest addition to the brand’s MT family.
The Yamaha TFX runs on a 150 cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 4-valve, fuel injection engine putting out 16.32 ps @ 8500 rpm and 14.3 Nm of torque @ 7500 rpm. The power plant is mated to a 6-speed constant mesh system and is spurred to life by the signature red MT starter switch and TCI ignition system.
For performance, the Yamaha TFX is built with a sturdy deltabox frame, super wide 110/70/17 tubeless front tires, wide handlebar, and front-positioned seats for better handling and stability. Vibrations are dampened by a rear aluminum swing arm and 37 mm upside down forks, the latter of which absorbs shocks better in varying road conditions. Style-wise, the TFX struts a sporty-looking under-cowl and side-cowls, along with full LED headlights and a full inverted LCD speedometer. Available color options include silver and matte yellowish gray.
It is available in all Yamaha distribution channels nationwide for PHP 139,000.
