I'm liking the blue frame. Can't wait till my te comes in......

 

I like the blue frame too.  I hate the white frame!

Its a bummer they took the kicker off, but I guess if you can't start the bike with a dead battery anyways (without adding a capacitor) whats the point?  At least you can still add it!

NEW ambient air pressure sensor for improved altitude compensation.  

NEW exhaust system provides improved performance with reduced weight and a more durable construction thanks to the innovative corrugated surface on the expansion chamber.

It makes me sick to my stomach that the TX is going to be fuel injected and does not came stock with a kick start.

Kick start can be added pretty cheap, I'm just glad they didn't remove the ability to add one! I'm more saddened that they are not offering a carb version alongside the FI.. I don't trust the oil pump with the failures people have been reporting..

Magura Clutch and brakes. Mentioned because I keep seeing TX300i specs calling Brembo components (which would be my preference), but all the photos have Magura calipers shown.

PS since 2014 TE300- 2017 TX300 I have kick started my bikes only to be sure that that the system functions.

Especially with the new engine configuration (2017+) I am fully confident to go without a kick starter assy. (until the estart system fails hahahaa) No really I for one am not worried. I am more worried about injectors clogging which I seen numerous times with my 4T riding buddies.

Stoked on the fuel injected TX and XC. I almost picked up a '19 250 XC but will hold off for the 300 TPI. I feel bad for the guys that need a kicker (super cold weather maybe?) I've been fortunate to be kicker free and have not been left high and dry. My buddy had a battery failer on his bike though. Was able to use a capacitor. I'm assuming these are similar to the 4T FI bikes and you'll have to rig up a capacitor to get the bike to start after the battery craps out? That's my plan at least. Hook it up, bump start, continue on with the ride.

Bought my 19' for this exact reason. I'd like to try one of these new ones and see how they are. My bike took some work to get tuned in but that's part of the fun at least for me.

My bike doesn't like to start with  the electric start when it's cold, I always kick it the first time to get it going. They must just be trying to save some weight by removing the kick start.

The tpi adds so much weight they have to keep the weight down somehow. It's nice my 19 has the kicker but I've never used it. It's holds my ratio right when I'm changing gear oil.

I have a 2017 and have never used my kick starter a single time in 2 years.  I plan on getting this late fall.

Is the kickstart gear and return inside the case? just add kick lever? or need to add kick start gear too?

Its not the hardest thing to do...add kick start internals...if you really want it. Bit Euro pricey, I bet...shaft, gear, collars, seals, ratchet, springs...

 

I went years without ever kicking, too...then the battery got weak when the bike wasn't running right I drained it a bit trying to estart...I kicked it to start...the bike ran...I went riding...maybe theres enough voltage on an old battery that the bike could run but not turn a starter motor?

Don’t see any weights listed. Any body see anything? Interested to see how much more it weights compared to 19 carb bike.

I can't seem to pull anything up but I recall it stated 224ish lbs somewhere.

That adds up because a TE 300i’s dry weight is 232 lbs but they have added weight of a headlight, taillight and that fender flap
