2017 TM Motorcross MX 144 2T
Not actual model, but similar model displayed.
Compared to their 125cc brethren, the 144s have tricky shift points and sign off early. Not so with the TM 144MX engine. It has a power curve very much like a 125cc. That translates into lackluster bottom-end power followed by a hard hit in the midrange and more than ample over-rev. Although the curve is very similar to a TM 125MX’s, the power of the TM 144MX is more potent across the board. Needless to say, we were impressed with how the TM 144MX ran. It has an easy-to-ride engine that runs best on fast tracks and pulls great under a load.
We have to give a round of applause to TM for creating a bike that is vastly different from its 125 brethren. It has a powerful, high-revving powerband, workmanlike suspension and superior controls. If it weren’t for its high price tag and high seat height, the 2016 TM 144MX could well be the best in its class.
