We are pleased to announce the TM Racing range for 2014 and here is a brief rundown highlighting some of the changes to models in the range. Once again TM Racing will be producing a full range of Motocross, Enduro, Supermotard Racing and Supermotard Street variants all available with a choice of different capacity 2-Stroke and 4-Stroke engines.
The ‘all new for 2013′ 85cc MX machine has taken the world by storm and this absolutely stunning looking bike with its unmatched high specification of standard production components and performance only receives minor updates for 2014. These updates include a new piston design with changes to both the cylinder configuration and engine set-up. These changes make for better engine performance and longevity in the harshest conditions. New suspension settings also feature for both the front forks and the rear shock absorber with adjustments to shim settings, oil weights and volumes and shock gas pressures, all working together to give a much better progression to the suspension units of both the small wheel and big wheel variants. The machine also receives a fresh look with a new decal kit in an Italian theme.
125cc / 144cc.
The already well proven TMEES 125cc / 144cc engine has also been treated to a thorough overhaul, the original 2012 125cc TMEES engine received a major overhaul for 2013 including new crankcases with a revised induction angle for the V-Force reed block. A new air boot and air filter system. New exhaust system and a new main bearing set-up to reduce drag and increase engine responsiveness, in 2013 the 144cc engine was also revised to these specifications. For 2014 TM Racing have yet again increased the performance of these incredible engines and have found gains in both power and torque across the rev range with an all new twin-ring piston design which increases compression stability with less blow-by under extreme conditions, new cylinder port timing to maximise the potential of the new piston and new exhaust valve pulleys fitted with new larger diameter command cables to increase the performance and reliability of the TMEES system, all working harmoniously with new carburetion settings. The chassis also features some revisions and these include a new triple clamp offset combined with new forks and shock settings to enhance bike stability and turning making for a better handling package, in the aesthetics department there is a new decal kit and matching seat cover once again following an Italian design.
The mighty 2 stroke flagships of the TM Racing range have now been brought in line with the 125cc and 85cc engine induction alterations, after both receiving the new air boot and air filter design in 2013 the large capacity 2-Stroke engines have been re-worked and feature a new crankcase design with a rotated V-Force reed block position, this is matched to a new inlet manifold with altered carburetion settings these changes, now combined with the 2013 intake system, maximise throttle response and engine performance across the rev range. As the 125 the 250cc / 300cc machines chassis feature similar revisions, again these include a new triple clamp offset combined with new forks and shock settings to enhance bike stability and turning making for a better handling package, in the aesthetics department there is a new decal kit and matching seat cover once again following an Italian design.
The stunning TM Racing 250Fi machines will also receive some changes for 2014 and after having months of testing at the highest levels of competition in the MX and Enduro World Championships the latest updates to the 250Fi engines come from development of the TM Factory Racing Teams. The 2014 engine will receive a new piston with an all new crown design for better burn control, power output and efficiency when combined with the new cylinder head shape with altered volumes. New EFI mapping settings for both ignition timing control and fuel injection control work in tune with the new head and piston arrangement to increase power and torque for a large part of the rev range and these changes are different for both MX and Enduro variants too. Both the MX and Enduro engines have unique pistons and head profile variants to give the performance required for each discipline, on the MX engine and new inlet camshaft profile and a new larger diameter throttle body feature and increase the performance values even further to suit the harsher nature of Motocross. Whilst the Enduro engine retains the smaller throttle body and ‘relaxed’ camshaft profiling to give a smother, broader power output better suited to the required conditions found in Enduro. Once again the same changes feature on the chassis department, these include a new triple clamp offset combined with new forks and shock settings to enhance bike stability and turning making for a better handling package, in the aesthetics department there is a new decal kit and matching seat cover once again following an Italian design.
The mighty 450cc engine has once again proven to be a world beater in many disciplines and for 2014 the philosophy is simple, small changes. For 2014 the 450cc engine receives only minor alterations to ignition timing and fuel control via the ECU and a small change to the piston design to enhance burn control and efficiency. The already immensely powerful and torque laden engine required little in the way of more performance and simple alterations have just improved its responsiveness at lower rpm’s and facilitated easier starting on the conventional kickstart variants. As with the rest of the TM Racing range the chassis receives the same changes, these include a new triple clamp offset combined with new forks and shock settings to enhance bike stability and turning making for a better handling package, in the aesthetics department there is a new decal kit and matching seat cover once again following an Italian design.

After the good start of the International Series in Viterbo, Tm Racing Team and Thomas Chareyre came to Limatola circuit to defend the World Champion title.
This first round of the World Championship took place on the track of Limatola, a very beautiful structure. Unfortunately, on Saturday, the weather was rainy all the day long.
In the Time Practice, Thomas Chareyre couldn’t find the right feeling with the wet track and because of an excessive use of the rear tyre he didn’t succeed in finishing better than 13th.
On Sunday morning, a warm sun was shining on the track and Thomas Chareyre aimed at catching up as many positions as possible. In the Warm Up, Thomas got the first fast lap time.
In the first heat, Thomas started really well and in the first lap he was 5th and with an incredible pace he recovered positions up to 2nd.
In the second heat, the French rider started really fast and in the first lap he was second and he did his best to catch up Hermunen but he had a good margin and Thomas finished 2nd.
Thomas was on the podium in this first GP, but maybe he’s not totally satisfied with his performance in the Time Practice.
Now a long break before the second round of the International Series in Latina, on 18th-19th May.
We are at the third race of the Italian Supermoto 2013, and was raced on the track in Battipaglia in the province of Salerno.
Thomas Chareyre and its Tm 450 are presented to this meeting after the good performance of previous races.
In the qualifications Thomas gets a strong second place just a few tenths from pole position, Chareyre and the team are confident of being able to play the win.
At the start of the first heat Chareyre part well and puts himself in the wake of the leader, Thomas for a few laps he studied his opponent and in the stretch off the road makes it impossible to overtake taking command of the operation and taking an incredible pace to win by a good margin.
In the second moto Thomas puts on the same script, but already in the first lap and took the lead for the remaining 15 steps no one can worry.
Thomas Chareyre provides incredible goals proving that he is the best rider in the world.
Only 15-day break and then back on track in the Czech Republic for the third round of the World on Track Sosnova where it ran from 2005.
The 9th GP of the 2013 World Championship took place on the historic circuit of Maggiora, the wonderful track has been reopened after fourteen years and the event has been a great success in terms of audience. Ricci Racing Team’s riders are in Mx1 Shaun Simpson and in Mx2 Ivo Monticelli and Samuele Bernardini as wild card.
In the Mx2 qualifying race, Monticelli and Bernardini had a great manche, finishing respectively 17th and 25th. On Sunday, in the first heat, Ivo Monticelli started well, but his physical conditions weren’t at the top and he finished 29th; while Bernardini had a bad crash and he was forced to abandon. In the seconde manche, both the riders crashed and were forced to abandon.
In mx1qualifying race, Shaun Simpson didn’t find the right pace and he made too many mistakes finished 24th. In the first race on Sunday, he had a great race, he started very fast and he had a great paceimproving his performance finishing 11th. In the second heat, Shaun was in the top positions but he abandoned because of a technical problem.
The next GP will take place in Sweden on the tack of Uddevalla.
Ilario Ricci, Team Manager:
“Another negative week-end, the track was really hard and our riders have to improve their performances, we keep on working to improve our results.”
The pilots of the TM Racing Factory Team once more conquered several podiums. Aigar Leok and the Chilean pilot Benjamin Herrera take two third places under the TM tent, respectively in the E3 and Youth Cup. classes
With the double podium gained in the GP, which took place in Buzau, a small town about a hundred kilometres form the capital, Bucharest. Aigar Leok climbed the classification in the E3 and overtook his rival taking himself to the temporary second position. His physical condition are not completely resolved, but, Aigar knows how to grit his teeth and take home a good result. In fact ,on Sunday, the Estonian pilot fought to the end to conquer the third place.
Also, the young Chilean pilot , Benjamin Herrera,, on Sunday, conquered a great third position right in the last trial of the Special, registering good time in the Enduro Test. Benjamin stupefied everyone in the GP .at home and it repeated itself in Argentina, and now it seems he has got the right measure , also, in the European GP.
A little bit of bad luck in the Rumanian weekend for the Finish pilot Eero Remes. He took off, as usual ,amongst the first positioned, Eero gambled the third position to the end, on Saturday, but, without conquering it. On the following day, some mistakes too many and a drop in the motor compromised the trial of the pilot, who defends the colours pale blue in the E1.
The next appointment is foreseen on the 22nd and 23rd of June for the GP in Greece.
“After some good results in Europe I finally disputed a great GP. These two third places are great for the temporary classification and also good for the moral”.
“After the injuries of the Portuguese GP, I recuperated strength ,even if I’m not yet 100% Filed away is the Rumanian GP, in a positive manner with two third places, even if on Sunday I really sweated to obtain it. Now we are going to Greece to defend the second place of the class.”
“It was not a positive weekend , on Saturday I fought to the end for the third placing, but I committed too may mistakes. Instead, on Sunday everything was compromised by a drop in the engine . Moral , though is not low and we will leave hardened and positive for good results in the next GP in Greece”
