Hand-built in the Pesaro industrial zone of Italy, TM motorcycles are a rarity in the United States. Hell, realistically they’re a rarity everywhere, as the small factory pumps out only around 1,000 motorcycles per year, a fraction of the numbers produced by the “big five.” Ironically, while the TM factory’s overall number of units produced is low, they offer a crazy range of off-road motorcycles that spans 34 different machines in every discipline from moto to endure to supermoto to flat track. It’s been a few years since the exotic Italian bikes have even been imported into the States, but Ralf Schmidt of Gravity TM Racing have recently secured the rights as the exclusive North American importer, and they hope to make the powder-blue dirt bikes a more common sign in the USA.”
