Yamaha has several motorbike models in its MT line-up.
One of them is the TFX 150 or also known as Xabre 150 or M Slaz 150. It is a sports commuter motorbike with 149.8 cc displacement.
Due to this small displacement, the TFX is perfect for beginners.
It is also perfect for riders who love to commute in a relaxed riding style.
Commuting using the M Slaz 150 is quite economical because its fuel consumption is 40-45km/L in the city.
Yamaha TFX 150 Overview
TFX 150 is a naked bike with excellent performance in its class.
The power source of this motorbike is a liquid-cooled, SOHC, FI engine. It can deliver up to 14.3 Nm torque at 7,500 rpm and 12 kW of power at 8500 rpm.
Meanwhile, the top speed of the TFX is approximately 90 km/h.
Variants and Colors
Xabre 150 only comes in the Standard variant. However, riders have three color choices when they purchase the M Slaz 150. They are red, black, and white.
However, the motorbike does not have a full red or white color on its body.
Yamaha creates a combination of colors on the TFX body, i.e., red/black and white black with the black color more dominant than the red or white color.
Moreover, all M Slaz 150s have golden front suspensions.
Yamaha TFX 150 Design
Yamaha builds the TFX on a Deltabox steel frame which is light but strong.
The dimensions of this sports commuter bike are almost similar to those of the MT series, i.e., 0.80 m x 1.95 m x 1.06. Meanwhile, its seat height is 0.80 m.
The M Slaz 150 comes with a wide handlebar, thick tires, sharp LED headlamps, and a sculpted tank.
The combination of these features creates an attractive sporty look. However, some riders want to boost the look of the M Slaz 150.
They use decals to improve the graphic on the M Slaz 150 body.
Some others install a crash guard to protect the bike and make it more attractive. Small riders even have the TFX with a modified lowered seat.
Yamaha TFX 150 Braking & Safety
Since Xabre 150 is not a big bike, Yamaha doesn’t equip it with a sophisticated safety system.
This sports commuter bike comes with hydraulic single-disc brakes. In addition, the Xabre 150 has an engine check warning feature.
Therefore, riders can maintain their bike properly to improve their safety.
Yamaha TFX 150 Ride & Handling
This naked bike provides riders handling stability thanks to the big wheels, Deltabox frame, upside-down telescopic suspension, and linked-type monocross suspension.
Moreover, the wide handlebar of the M Slaz 150 allows riders to maneuver the bike easily.
In addition, this bike is agile and rigid in almost any terrain.
It also allows riders to have a comfortable riding position. The M Slaz 150 also offers a decent speed for commuters.
