Now available to the public, the KTM AIR4ORCE tunable intake system
Though the Moto Tassinari AIR4ORCE tunable intake system has been a key part of the ÖHLINS/Langston Motosports/KTM engine package, it's only now become available to the public. This is the exact same AIR4ORCE intake system that the JDR Motorsports, ÖHLINS/Langston Motosports/KTM and Munn Racing teams have been racing with in the 2012 Supercross series.
TWMX Magazine highlights Jessy Nelson's Honda CRF250R
In the latest installment of SPANNER, in the January 2012 issue of Transworld Motocross the AIR4ORCE equipped Honda CRF250R of Jessy Nelson is the featured bike. Moto Tassinari has been a sponsor of Jessy Nelson for the past two seasons and look forward to another strong season with Jessy. Moto Tassinari also continues it's sponsorship in 2012 of the Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oils/Honda race team. The Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oils/Honda was actually the first race team to use the AIR4ORCE tunable intake system in competition at the Unadilla National in 2010, and they've been using it ever since—including their sponsored WMX rider Tarah Gieger.
DB Racing Honda CRF250R is AIR4ORCE equipped
The latest issue of MOTO Magazine UK (issue #73) showcases the potent CRF250Rs of David Bright's DB Racing Honda team featuring Elliott Banks-Browne and James Cottrell. Elliot took second in the British Championships and won the Red Bull MX2 title in 2011. Upon riding the DB Racing Hondas the MOTO staff raved about the instant smooth power, describing it as, "…strong all the way through, very powerful". Of course it never hurts to have superior suspension when you have this much power, and the DB Racing Hondas have just that, with the Ohlins TTX set-up. In closing the staff concur, "…it's the best Honda 250 in Britian and I'd be surprised if there was a better CRF250R in Europe to be honest. It's a brilliant race bike."
Dirt Rider Magazine Product of the Year First Runner-up
We've always been a fan of Dirt Rider magazine (as we ride both motocross and woods), so it was with great pleasure when we opened up the December issue to see that Moto Tassinari was included in the Dirt Rider Product of the Year feature. The editorial staff at Dirt Rider magazine chose both the AIR4ORCE tunable intake system and the VForce4 reed valve system by Moto Tassinari as Product of the Year: First Runner-Up for 2011. We're very pleased to see the AIR4ORCE tunable intake getting the recognition we feel it deserves. In only it's first full year racing it garnered numerous supercross wins at the hands of Justin Barcia, Eli Tomac, Cole Seely, and Ryan Sipes. The AIR4ORCE was used by GEICO/Honda, Troy Lee Designs Honda, Factory Honda, DNA/ShredStix/Star Racing, Rockstar/Suzuki Lites, Suzuki City and several GP teams including BikeIt Wild Wolf Yamaha, Gariboldi Yamaha and more.
