The world famous Pesarese manufacturer has once again this year, taken its exceptional range of products to the top of the world stage in many disciplines. Competing against the much larger manufacturers with their ‘limitless’ resources, TM Racing will take World, European and domestic championship titles throughout 2021. TM Racing have also shown great success to date with their latest project, the Moto 3 road racing machine, recently taking FIM CEV Championship titles. As is the TM Racing philosophy, they have once again taken their handcrafted, high specification, high quality and high performance ‘customer’ machines to the top of the most competitive World Championships, whilst also adding a multitude of national and domestic results to their tally throughout the TM Racing global network, with both 2-stroke and 4-stroke machines in various classes structures and disciplines.
TM Racing’s exceptional quality remains as always, built to perform at a level in standard trim beyond what is the conventional expectation. Greater performance throughout, not just in power, but in delivery and control. Improvements in handling in all terrains with new chassis changes and geometry revisions, combined with real ‘wet’ weight reductions, some great technological advances in fueling systems, updates to engines and engine improvements, all alongside the work to ahcieve perfect mass centralisation, especially on the 4-stroke machines and their naturally heavier engines. TM Racing have created some of the lightest ‘ready to ride’ machines in their class. True performers, race bikes built to race from the offset, what we have all come to expect from a TM Racing machine.
The current generation of the TM Racing range has been given numerous beneficial updates in many areas throughout the 2-stroke and 4-stroke engine range, with a mass of changes and some unique technical innovations once again, and as is now customary, all done with the TM Racing philosophy of ‘’we build it how we want it to be built’’, not working to a ‘budget’ or making sacrifices where none should be made. A philosophy that leaves many dumbfounded as to how TM can produce what they do, in the volume they do, for the end consumer price.
For 2022 the TM Racing range sees some beneficial changes being adopted throughout the models. These include updates and revisions to the chassis of most machines, engine updates an ancilleries, a new visually stunning look, changes to fueling and electrical systems and chassis set-up revisions. TM Racing’s latest generation aluminium chassis, that was re-designed in 2018 to improve the structure and alter flex characteristics, now for 2022 it has once again been revised in its construction, achieving better rider positioning, handling characteristics and a reduction in chassis weight for every model across the range. Each ‘capacity class’ and designation of model machine also features its own chassis for both the engine type and in some cases, model discipline. All these changes are designed and engineered to work together harmoniously, further enhancing an already great package of machines for the new model year. With a multitude of exceptional materials, quality machining, processing and material treatments – that are seldom seen on the inside, matched to a huge number of machined aluminium and high-quality parts on the outside, TM Racing motorcycles are constructed to a near ‘factory’ machine specification list, albeit designed for the retail consumer. TM Racing ‘factory’ bikes have more in common with their production counterparts than would ever be believed. The TM Racing ‘factory’ machines run the same components as the bikes they produce for their customers. Yes, some new parts and settings are applied for testing, developing, and of course improving their production models, but never ‘exotic’ parts or materials that would never feature on a production machine or in a future catalogue or model year. A great testament to the TM Racing philosophy and the build quality, performance and strength of their stock parts, stock parts that others must sacrifice to achieve their goals. In short, TM Racing ‘race’ their machines at the very top of our sport to allow them to design, build, test and ultimately, produce bikes for ‘you’ that can compete at the highest levels.

TM Racing MX 100cc & ‘NEW’ 112cc Junior Machine Also Available.
The 85cc / 100cc / 112cc machine receives some small but significant technical updates for the new model year, all designed to further enhance an already incredible package. With a growing reputation of being one of the best ‘out-of-the-box’ 85cc machines on the market, the TM 85 MX machine has an ever-increasing track record of excellent results and great reliability. With a chassis that not only gives superb riding characteristics but is also one of, if not the, lightest on the track in real world terms, matched to an engine that has a great spread of usable, class leading power. The smallest machine of the TM Racing brand range is constructed with not only performance in mind but also durability and is well received by amateur and professional alike in its characteristics.
The aluminium chassis, a first for a ‘Junior’ model, not only looks incredible but also delivers the lap times when matched to the ‘factory’ type fork and shock absorber arrangement. For 2022 the aluminium frame has seen some revisions in its construction, allowing a reduction in weight of the chassis itself. The current suspension configuration and the settings utilised have created a chassis with great response to terrain changes, improving tracking and rear wheel traction, this in combination with the confidence inspiring ‘over-sized’ braking system that works, and keeps working in the harshest conditions, gives a great chassis package of tried and tested components. Built to perform and keep performing whilst maintaining lightweight and retaining ‘upmarket’ componentry and strength throughout, the TM 85 MX is an incredible machine.
The 85cc water-cooled, power-valve type engine features a billet machined crankshaft, a machined and treated con-rod, hand finished crankcases that feature a water jacket around the crankshaft area for reducing crank temperatures, a V-force reed block, hand finished cylinders, an ‘oversize’ gearbox and clutch arrangement for superb durability and ultra-reliable clutch performance, die-cast clutch casing and ancillary covers for a smooth look, lighter weight and superb strength, a Kokusan ignition system and new exhaust system, all fed by a Keihin 28mm carburettor with an oversize intake bell mouth, breathing through a large volume Twin-Air air filter.
For the new model year, the already outstanding 85cc engine will see only minor changes and revisions, it will continue to adopt all the previous model year specifications changes, these previous updates included a new crankshaft, running on new reduced friction main bearings, alongside new crank-seals designed to ensure increased seal durability whilst reducing frictional losses. The cylinder continues to adopt the latest updated configuration and port timing arrangement that was designed to maximise performance throughout the rpm range when combined with the twin-blade power-valve system revision. All these changes are of course harmonised with the ECU ignition settings, to give a better overall power delivery and create one of the best performing engines in its class. Chassis components include, billet triple clamps, billet hubs laced to excel rims, billet rear brake lever, oversize brake discs with oversize calipers, braided brake and clutch lines, hydraulic clutch, new Mupo Race Fork, Extreme Tech shock absorber, TM even felt the need to include a built-in hole-shot device, the specification is endless. For 2022 the aesthetic look of the machine will also be updated replicating that of its big brethren, and of course will feautre a new decal scheme incorporating some brighter colour accents giving a more striking visual appearance. A machine built with purpose, using some of the best components and materials available, designed to perform and keep performing without the need to invest heavily in the after-market, an excellent package of high performance, superb handling characteristics, light weight and excellent reliability for the youth sector. American publication Motocross Action had this to say….. “Make no mistake about it, the TM85 MX is the ultimate 85cc two-stroke.”
ADULT MACHINE RANGE:
ENGINES: The already world class performing TM Racing range of engines and engine ancillary components each receive some updates for the new model year range. These high-spec, high performing engines are designated to each discipline, whether MX, EN, Road or Supermotard, each feature their own unique variation on internal and external components and settings to perform at their best in their destined environment.

The legendary TM Racing 125cc and 144cc 2-stroke engines are synonymous with performance. Combined with some incredible technical innovations, the latest evolution of engines are designed and constructed from some of the best materials and feature some of the best ancillary components available as standard fitment. TM Racing have created small capacity engines with outstanding power characteristics, greater than their actual capacity would suggest, alongside superb reliability to give class leading performance from the outset time and time again. Both the 125cc and 144cc variants have received small, but significant, revisions for the new 2022 model year in terms of engine set-up, the most notable beng a new exhaust system and new electrcial wiring. These new changes work alongside updated electronic programming, all designed to maximise the performance of the engine. The TMEES electronically controlled exhaust valve with a direct drive system remains, a now well-proven an reliable system, this has proven to be a great update to these small capacity engines and put them in line with their bigger capacity brethren. This ‘direct-drive’ TMEES system gives better response with a gain in power/torque at the lower range whilst strengthening the mid / top end performance of the engine. The TMEES system electronics have been profiled to work seamlessly with the engine electronics to ensure power, torque and responsiveness is always at its best for each given discipline. On the 125cc / 144cc EN and SMR variants the fuel injection systems will also feature a host of new changes specific to these models, new wiring, new oil mixer tank, new wiring harnesses and advancements in the fuel injection system itself for better performance.
250cc / 300cc: Single Cylinder, Water-Cooled, TMEES 2 Power-valve.
Hand finished crankcases, lightweight and strong die-cast clutch casing, clutch inspection, water pump and ignition covers, cast water pump rotor, billet machined crankshafts running on roller bearings with ‘hi-tech’ crank-seals, friction reduction coated pistons, high performance – long lasting clutches, ‘cush-drive’ clutch baskets, friction reduction hard coated clutch baskets, friction reduction hard coated gearbox selector fork tips, hardened gear-shaft parts (new main shaft), MX / EN differing ratio gearboxes, hydraulic clutch actuation, V-Force reed blocks, Keihin Carburetors (MX/SMX/FT), Fuel Injection with twin injectors and separate electronic control oil distribution (EN models), Electric start, Balancer shaft, HGS Exhaust systems (with plated expansion chambers on EN / Road models), TMEES electronic exhaust valve control, Kokusan digital variable advance ignition with twin map selection, gear position sensitive variable ignition timing and power-valve operation.
The large capacity TM Racing 250cc and 300cc 2-stroke engines are synonymous with strength and durability, with each capacity engine having its own unique qualities in the terms of performance and power delivery characteristics. In 2019 the engines had a total re-design which featured a multitude of new and exciting additions to increase performance and ease of use for the rider,these engine were then updated again in 2020 for the release of the fuel-injected variant and these changes are adopted across all models. For 2022 we see some new changes and revisions, the most notable being an all-new 6 speed gearbox for all Enduro based variants, new crankshaft mounting tolerances, new wiring harnesses and new exhaust systems. There are also updates specific to the fuel injected variants which include, a new oil mixer tank, new wiring harensses, a new exhaust system and advancements in the fuel injection system itself for better performance.
Whilst retaining some internal components, from the exterior, the latest generation engines have a whole new look and share nothing in terms of cast components and little in internal components with the previous class engine. The complete re-design of this latest engine was born and produced to accommodate numerous changes, changes that include electric start on all models, alongside a fuel injection option on EN models with a digitally controlled oil distribution system, whilst carburettors remain on the MX / SMX / FT models. The gearbox assembly also features friction reduction coated and treated parts to ensure smooth and precise shifting and a whole new gearbox assembly for the Enduro variants featuring 6 ratios. The recent addition of a balancer shaft reduces engine vibration, giving smoother performance, better ‘feel’ and a reduction in rider fatigue. The gear position sensitive ignition works alongside the TMEES exhaust valve control system, with the servo mounted to the cylinder and working directly to a revised pulley system. Electronic control programming, alongside the handlebar mounted twin ignition map switch, allows the power delivery for each of the 250cc and 300cc engines to not only be tailored by the rider on track, but the electronic systems also make alterations to the mapping depending on gear selection, valve position, rpm (and communication to the fuel injection system where applicable), ensuring the best power delivery and traction at all times. A system that is proving to be great for the hole-shot and those slippery rock sections alike, depending on machine and discipline of course, thus allowing the engine and control systems to give the rider the required power and torque at the required time, giving the best in traction in all conditions. Constructed from some of the best materials for maintaining performance and reliability these already class leading engines that produce incredible, yet usable, controlled power and torque combined with quality ancillary components, have taken themselves to a new level. Power delivery, rider comfort and ultimate outright performance is optimally tailored in each discipline in all conditions in a way never seen before in off-road 2-stroke engines.
250Fi ‘Twin’ / 300Fi ‘Twin’ / 450Fi / 450Fi ‘Twin’ / 530Fi: 4-Stroke Engines – Single Cylinder, Water Cooled, 4-Valve, Twin Cam, Fuel Injected.

Electric start on EN and Road models, standard fitment on UK MX models and optional on SMX/FT 4-Stroke models models.
The TM Racing range of 4-stroke engines has become legendary for exceptional power delivery and outright performance and durability. The ability of these engines to perform has become renowned worldwide and for a ‘production’ engine the internal components and materials used are unmatched, many of these components and materials being of a level of quality that would only usually adorn the best of the ‘factory’ engine machinery. With an ever-growing list of results globally, in many disciplines, the 4-stroke range of TM Racing engines has spread to accommodate not only the off-road sector, but now feature in other motorsports, road racing and Karting primarily. TM Racing’s 4-stroke motorcycle range has seen great success over the past seasons, with the SMX 450Fi machine now having taken multiple Supermotard World Championship and domestic championship titles. 2021 has been no different and once again the SMX 450Fi is leading the way, heading for World Championship and European Championship titles this year. Held in high regard, as the bike to be riding in Supermotard to get the desired results, this machine has been designed and built specifically for Supermotard. A bike that can be bought as a package that is ready to thrive in this discipline, where others are generally adapted machines created from other MX base models, the SMX 450 is proving unstoppable!. The 450Fi Enduro model was also recently adopted and developed to form the TM Racing Rallye bike, the 450 DKR / Rallye, a machine that has taken world championship victories in its class, a great testament to performance and durability in the harshest conditions. The 250Fi and 300Fi variants are also currently setting the world stage alight and have taken many World titles in the hugely competitive World Enduro Championship. The latest MX and EN 250Fi / 300Fi 4S ‘Twin’ machines have been turning heads and impressing riders globally with their sheer performance and handling, a superbly engineered racing machine that is outperforming its predecessor in all aspects and is achieving great results.
The 4-stroke range will retain the current ‘reverse’ chassis configuration with fuel tank under the seat and the air intake above the engine. This layout has seen a huge transformation in the handling characteristics of all the 4-stroke models since it was introduced and has been gradually improved upon year on year, now for 2022 we have a new chassis once again. Centralised mass, better outright balance and revisions to the geometry and suspension settings have allowed TM Racing to create and incredible range of 4-stroke machinery all with superb ability and agility. An incredible range of engines matched to an incredible range of chassis, each tailored to a ‘base’ engine, have given TM Racing the ultimate range in 4-stroke machinery, with each model proving itself to be class leading on the world stage in it’s given discipline. We have some small but significant changes to the engines for 2022 alongside a new engine for the MX 450Fi model. All 250Fi / 300Fi models will now feature the ‘twin port’ cylinder head configuration, the pure performance of this engine has been proven in some of the world toughest environments with huge success over the past seasons and will now be the ‘standard’ engine configuration of the smaller capacity 4-stroke line-up. All model variant engines differ internally on a large scale also, differences to the camshaft, piston, valves, crankshaft, con-rod, gearboxes and more, not to mention settings in the electronics and fuelling systems to tailor the performance of each engine perfectly. Each of these changes is tailored to every model and designed to work alongside the recently throttle bodies and Fi systems, maximising the responsiveness and outright engine performance of these already incredible engines for each given discipline. The legendary 450Fi engine, that has dominated in its Supermotard guise for over a decade, seen huge changes in 2021 with the release of the ‘twin’ pipe engine, akin to it’s smaller capacity brethren, featuring a revised cylinder head with two exhaust systems. This engine design will now be defined as the TM Racing 450Fi engine of choice in terms of performance and we will now see a revised variant in the MX 450Fi machine for 2022. TM Racing’s legendary ‘SMX’ variant will still come with two main engine options, the ‘Single Pipe Cylinder Head’ and the ‘Special Kit’ option (SMK), the latter being the ‘Twin Pipe’ cylinder head engine used by the TM Racing Factory team with great success. The SMX variants also come with an optional 6 speed gearbox option. All 4-strokes models will reciieve some technical changes for the 2022 model year which include, a new MX 450Fi engine variant, new wiring harnesses, new exhaust systems and a new air-filter intake box. Changes designed to work harmoniously to give greater performance throughout the rpm range. The best just got better.
CHASSIS: The high-end specification of all TM Racing machines is well-versed, this model year is no exception. Once again the specification list for a production machine is vast and features numerous high-quality components. For 2022 we have a large number important changes and revisions, the most notable being a new chassis designed to improve handling, weight balance, overall machine wieght (reduced), rider ergonomics and the visual look. All models chassis’ and sub-frames will once again be constructed using aluminium, with each engine ‘capacity’ / variant having a chassis unique to that engine displacement. This ‘tailoring’ of the chassis to engine allows TM Racing to design and build each machine for minimal weight, compactness, and better handling characteristics with mass centralisation specific to each model whether 2-stroke or 4-stroke. All chassis are constructed using the latest design elements that reduce overall chassis weight whilst maintaining maximum strength, matched to new revisions in chassis geometry / triple clamp angles that are specifically tailored to each model once again, allowing the best in handling characteristics for each model in the range. On all models, the now standard fitment KYB 48mm twin chamber fork, will continue to adopt the latest generation of internal friction reduction ‘coatings’ and the revised settings from 2021. These latest generation forks are designed to give improved response for faster changes to the terrain, all still controlled by the more favourable spring and oil set-up which is still proving to give greater reliability and more consistent performance. The TM Racing shock absorber, made in house by the TM racing technicians, has seen some large internal changes over the last 2 years and will still adopt this latest ‘seal’ system designed to reduce friction and increase shock performance. Combined with the latest swing-arms, linkage components and spindle diameters to limit and ‘control’ flex, the revised shock allows for a more progressive feel, giving improved track stability and maximising traction. The chassis and suspension components work together to achieve incredible handling characteristics on a multitude of surfaces, allowing for greater stability in all conditions, increasing traction and inspiring greater confidence to reduce lap-times. The aesthetic look of the machines will also be new for 2022 and the new striking design is not only ‘form’ but ‘function’, combined with the new chassis the body panel design will also see the overall width of the bike reduced by 3cm, to make a slimmer, narrower machine, a new ‘smaller’ seat will also feature for 2022. The current appearance of the latest generation model range is still one of the most striking to date, a mix of angles and curves that blend seamlessly into each other from front to rear. Beautiful, yet aggressive in its shaping, the body panels will however feature a new decal scheme incorporating some brighter colour accents giving a more striking visual appearance.
‘FRESH AIR SYSTEM’: All TM Racing adult 2-Stroke models feature the ‘Fresh Air’ intake system which allows the engine air filtration system to breathe cleaner air, this system reduces particulate contamination of the air filter maximising power for longer duration. Air is channeled from the intake vents, on the top of the fuel tank, to the airbox which houses a large volume air filter. The ‘Fresh-Air’ system also brings another added advantage in the form of a lower centre of gravity, with the fuel tank now positioned slightly further into the chassis around the engines cylinder, this ‘weight’ shift, combined with the latest frame geometry and suspension, all work harmoniously to maximise the handling characteristics of each machine. The 4-Stroke machines also continue with recently adopted ‘reverse’ layout, which sees the fuel tank moved under the seat area whilst the engine intake and filtration system is now positioned above the engine. This allows the 4-Stroke engine to breathe cleaner air with a much more direct air feed into the Fi throttle body, filter contamination is decreased whilst engine performance and response is maximised. This chassis layout witnessed a huge transformation to the complete range of 4-stroke model machines, with the centre of gravity lowered further into the chassis, especially when noting that each capacity model has its own main chassis unique to a specific engine base. TM Racing have created a line of incredibly nimble and agile machines, better handling characteristics, turning, stability and weight losses were seen throughout the current chassis guise as well as gains in engine performance.
WHEELS: The CNC machined billet aluminium hubs, laced to anodized Excel rims, feature the latest spoke arrangement with a ‘tapering’ design profile in a stronger material, a material treated to increase corrosion resistance, larger spoke nipples feature on the front wheel also for added strength. The wheel configuration allows for the best in strength and durability of the wheel components whilst reducing the un-sprung weight by a small margin. The CNC machined hubs, featuring external dust seals encircling CNC machined wheels spacers to further protect the wheel bearings, are mounted to the suspension components via large diameter hollow spindles. The larger diameter spindles, machined through their centres to lower weight, allow for a more rigid fixing off the wheel reducing the flex and allowing the suspension to work more effectively.
BRAKING SYSTEMS: The braking systems of the TM racing model range has also received some new components in the form of some new options for the SMX range and new Brembo front brake pumps for some adult models. The entire model range continues to feature high quality oversize wave discs working with TM Racing’s ‘mix’ of components. The master cylinders are connected to the brake calipers with lined and braided high quality racing brake lines that are designed to minimise expansion and ensure maximum braking effort is always transmitted to the calipers. This tried and tested collaboration of parts is regarded as one of the best braking systems in many tests and by racers alike. These braking systems keeps performing in the harshest conditions giving great efficiency and inspiring confidence always. The rear brake system is actuated by a twin bearing pivot-mounted, billet machined aluminium foot lever with a replaceable tip.
TRIPLE CLAMPS: The triple clamps fitted to TM Racing motorcycles competition range are CNC machined from block aluminium and each clamp is a work of art, the clamps intricate machining, most of which can only be seen from the underside, gives a structure designed to be supremely strong whilst keeping weight to minimum. The triple clamps also come with an optional ‘damped’ bar mounting system that, through the use of a tapering rubber cone arrangement, allow vibrations that can be transmitted through to the handlebar area to be reduced, whilst also allowing some ‘give’ to the bars in the event of a fall reducing the chances of more severe damage occurring to the handlebars and the components adorning them. The handlebars are secured, via the optional ‘damped’ bar mounting system, by billet machined bar clamps, with the top bar clamps featuring a machined TM Racing logo on their upper face. New triple clamps angles feature on the new 250/300 2-Stroke machines.
CLUTCH ACTUATION: All TM Racing machines come fitted with a Hydraulic actuated clutch as standard, the master cylinder, made by Brembo, transmits fluid via a lined and braided hydraulic line to TM Racing’s own ‘slave’ cylinders. With separate slave cylinders for the 85/125/144 engines, the 250/300 engine, the 250Fi/300Fi engines and the 450Fi and 530Fi engines, each unit designed to fit and perform for each model giving a balanced clutch feel between all engine size variants, With both single and dual seal pistons in the slave cylinders depending on model application. The Brembo master cylinder, working with the braided hose that limits hose expansion under extreme load, gives great feel and precise clutch control with great durability when combined with TM Racings ‘cush-drive’ clutch baskets, which on the 250cc/300c and Fi variants are coated with a hard wearing, friction reduction coating. All clutches are multiple disc ‘wet’ units with multi sprung pressure plates.
ELECTRIC STARTING: The ES abbreviation in any motorcycles descriptive from the TM racing range denotes that the machine has ‘Electric Start’. The TM Racing Electric start system is powered by a new, lightweight, Lithium Ion battery that is recharged during engine running by the electrical system. Electric start is now standard fitment on all models and engine capacities over 144cc.
ENDURO / ROAD EQUIPMENT: All Enduro and ‘Road’ designated variants of the TM racing model range come with a full, self-generating lighting system (which can operate also from the battery system on Electric Start models) powered by the crankshaft mounted electrical generator. This system includes a complete side, dipped and main beam headlight assembly, taillight and rear brake light – operated by both front and rear brake actuation cylinders – with rear number plate illumination, a turn signal system consisting of 4 flasher units and a horn. All these functions are controlled via a handlebar mounted multi-switch that also includes an ‘engine stop’ button, on Fi ES models a ‘choke’ lever also features on the multi-switch. Working alongside the lighting part of the system is an illuminated digital speedometer with ‘trip’ functionality, this speedometer unit registers the vehicles given speed via a sensor located on the rear wheel of the motorcycle.
