Roadracing World‘s Sam Fleming and Melissa Berkoff visited the TM Racing factory in Pesaro, Italy in April 2022.
TM Racing makes arguably the most exquisite racing motorcycles for MX, Enduro and Supermoto in the world. They also made a championship-winning Moto3 road race bike!
Join Sam and Melissa on a very in-depth tour of the factory including the machine shop(s), the handcrafted engines and the assembly.
These videos are unscripted and had to be shot contemporaneously with the tour so forgive any verbal slips and/or the handheld nature of the camera work.
Part 1 of 5
00:25 The “More Beautiful” aesthetic of Italy
02:53 Meet our guide Roberto Aloi
02:56 A discussion of the challenges of California emissions laws, shipping rates, pros and cons of manufacturing ones own parts compared to buying them externally, the plans to continue ramping up production. It goes on and on but it is a fascinating look behinds the scenes and the manufacturing of motorcycles.

We hope you find this look inside the factory as fascinating as we did.
