Video: Army Of Darkness Tours TM Racing Factory, Part Two

© 2022, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. By Sam Fleming and Melissa Berkoff.

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.
