David Yard from 518 Motorworx placed 2nd overall at the 2014 Newfoundland Motocross in the plus 40 class. David mentioned the TM 250 MX ran flawlessly through out the season and is looking for even better results in 2015.
TM Racing have once again been working extremely hard in the Pesaro based factory updating their already incredible, high performance, high specification machines to bring you the 2015 model range. After a season of great results globally, in numerous motorcycling disciplines, the ‘testing’ has been completed and these changes have been applied to the new range. You can read about these new adoptions to the existing range below.
85 MX – A new Keihin 28mm carburetor with a revised intake manifold for a wider spread of more instantaneous power delivery matched to new ignition program for all round better power characteristics and responsiveness at any given rpm. Minimalist changes for an already well proven, incredibly competitive, stock machine.
125 MX / EN – New power valve cables modified for extended life and less maintenance working with a revised exhaust valve ECU for greater and more precise control at all rpm’s. New con-rod with increased length matched to a revised crankshaft working with new cylinder port timing to maximise power / torque output and increase engine response. New ‘high tech’ main bearings with new crank oils seals to give greater crank stability and duration. New exhaust system, pipe and silencer, all matched to harmonise all of the above changes to maximise power and smoothness of delivery.
144 MX / EN – New power valve cables and pulley system modified for extended life and working with a revised exhaust valve ECU for greater and more precise control at all rpm’s.
250 / 300 MX / EN – New cylinder and cylinder head featuring the TMEES electronic exhaust valve system for a greater control of the power delivery at all rpm’s. New crankshaft with new ‘high tech’ main bearings and crank seals for better ‘crank effects’ and to aid crankshaft stability and duration. New transmission cover, clutch inspection cover and water pump cover created using a different casting process for a cleaner look whilst saving weight. Gearbox position sensor connected to the TMEES exhaust valve offering a greater control of engine power delivery depending on the selected gear at all rpm’s. New exhaust system for total optimization of all new components.
85 MX – New graphics, minor changes to standard suspension settings for the big and small wheel variants for better turn in and stability.
125 / 144 / 250 / 300 – MX / EN – Modified chassis geometry featuring a new rear shock length (8mm) matched to a new linkage for better progression and traction in all conditions. New rear wheel spindle diameter with an increase of 2.5mm for added strength and less deflection of the swing-arm. New plastics design in a fresh and aggressive style featuring a new seat arrangement and a new fuel tank, the fuel tank features a ‘fresh air flow system’ which channels cool air via a control channel to the airbox to maximise cold air feed for higher power output. New fresh graphic look in an Italian theme.
250Fi 4T MX / EN – New inlet ducting system, throttle body and air funnel into the venturi to improve air feed for power maximisation. New oil filter arrangement for greater oil flow. New exhaust system allowing for greater performance and smoother power delivery all matched to revised ECU settings.
450Fi 4T MX / EN – New inlet ducting system, throttle body and air funnel into the venturi to improve air feed for power maximisation. New exhaust system allowing for greater performance and smoother power delivery all matched to revised ECU settings. Gearbox position sensor connected to the ECU to maximise performance and power delivery for any given gear ration by altering the fuelling and timing of the fuel injection system.
250Fi / 450Fi MX / EN – New chassis geometry with modified front fork rake for increase turn-in, stability and all round ‘lighter’ handling characteristics. Longer swing-arm for better bike balance and weight distribution. New rear shock length (8mm) and revised linkage for better progression and traction in all conditions. New layout designed to optimise weight balance, handling and engine performance featuring an intake system over the engine and the positioning of the fuel tank under the seat for a much more balance machine and lower centre of gravity. New rear wheel spindle diameter for greater strength and less deflection of the swing-arm. New triple clamp arrangement with less offset to improve ride-ability of the new chassis layout and weight transferal system. New air filter for better efficiency of the new intake system. New plastic design in a fresh and aggressive style featuring a new seat arrangement and new fresh graphics in an Italian theme.
450 4T SMR / SMM / SMX – New layout designed to optimise weight balance, handling and engine performance featuring an intake system over the engine and the positioning of the fuel tank under the seat for a much more balanced machine and lower centre of gravity. New rear wheel spindle diameter for greater strength and less deflection of the swing-arm. New triple clamp arrangement with less offset to improve ride-ability of the new chassis layout and weight transferal system. New air filter for better efficiency of the new intake system. New plastic design in a fresh and aggressive style featuring a new seat arrangement and new fresh graphics in an Italian theme. New ‘Monoblock’ billet front brake caliper option.

DEPUTY WORLD CHAMPIONS
The last round of the Enduro World Championship was raced last weekend in Brioude, France and for the TM Racing Factory Team the trip to France has been very positive.
In the E1 class the final objective was the attainment of the second place by Eero Remes and despite a not very positive weekend for our finnish rider the objective has been achieved, however, with as many as twenty points.
Positive weekend for Aigar Leok that in the E3 class wins two fourth places and finishes in the final standings on the fifth place. A good result after a start of season under tone and with some ailment too much for our Estonian rider who was able to recover the shape and points in the standings.
Great race for the Chilean rider Benjamin Herrera on both days of the race rose to the podium, second and third place, winning her third place overall in the Youth Cup class.
“We have reached the second place overall in the E1 class and I’m very happy for the result. “To say the truth the objective of the beginning ofseason was to succeed in winning the world title, I have lost during the year some point but I will retry there next year.
“A good weekend and I think about having raced a good competition giving my best. The race was tough and demanding, and the two fourth places obtained are a good result. “
“The race of Brioude has been challenging and very difficult but I was able to express myself better and in many special tests I got the best time and for this I definitely thank the whole team. A third and a second place here in France and third place in the Youth Cup class. I would say a good season. “
Lommel – The final round of the European Championship was hellish ride in the sand of Lommel, Samuele Bernardini came to the race with a lead of 34 points over his closest rival Marco Maddii, many, but on the races you never know, so Samuele was decided to conquer the headline immediately without waiting for the first round too.
Determined and strong for the pole position lap in the morning, Samuele snaps like a bolt from the starting gate conquering the command from the first corner and immediately puts a margin of 5 seconds between him and his pursuer English Gregory Lewis, Samuel continues to pull all the heat so you can stay focused and crossed the finish line Victorious.
The whole team takes him in triumph tossing it into the air to celebrate the victory of a championship newborn but very successful.
