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. We have witnessed the 450cc engine being adapted for the karting sector where its unique lubrication system, working a twin rotor ‘recovery and distribution’ pump with a lower cavity oil chamber for containment that feeds pumped oil to every part of the engine, has allowed this engine to work with the huge cornering g-forces that karts can create where others struggle to lubricate themselves as the oil swells to one side of the engine. 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 titles, it currently leads the way once again and has become regarded as the bike to be riding in Supermotard to get the desired results. A purpose designed Supermotard bike that can be bought as a package, ready to thrive in this discipline where others are generally adapted machines created from other models.
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. 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. The legendary 450Fi engine, that has dominated in its Supermotard guise for a decade, receives only minor updates to some ancillary components and settings for the MX / EN / Road variants, whilst the ‘SMX’ variant will feature a multitude of new additions. The SMX 450Fi 4S engine receives a new cylinder head, with improved porting and twin exhaust system exiting the head itself, alongside a new twin injector throttle body, all working with a new ECU and operating program harmonised to give even greater performance throughout the rpm range. The best just got better.
