What Is TM Racing?
It all started way back in 1976 with two friends who had a great love in common: motorcycles and racing. Thanks to the excellent quality and high performance of their motorcycles, the small Pesaro Italy company became a force to be reckoned with.
The company was founded by Claudio Flenghi and Francesco Battistelli, who registered the name TM (from the initials of their sons Thomas and Mirko). In 1977, a bike was entrusted to Gastone Serafini, who was to be a determining figure in helping Battistelli develop the bike and who would go on to achieve competition results on the highest level.
In 1982 Battistelli decided to leave TM and Gastone Serafini became his replacement. Serafini had reached the end of his professional racing career, and joined Flenghi full time in running the company.
The philosophy that has always distinguished TM is without a doubt the choice of materials, which must be of the highest quality, the workmanship, defined by some as “obsessive”, not to mention the high performance of the engines used on the standard bikes, which in many cases are far superior to those of the most prestigious competitors. This justifies the price of these jewels of engineering that appeal to a niche market made up of very demanding customers. They can in fact purchase a standard product with which to race in high level competition.
