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's Pete Peterson on the AIR4ORCE
In the June issue of Dirt Rider magazine, Pete Peterson takes a shot at "fixing the 2011 Honda CRF250R to suit his personal tastes and riding preferences. In his quest for the elusive "three-stroke" the first modification done by Pete is the installation of the Moto Tassinari AIR4ORCE tunable intake system.
Pete also puts to rest any fears about a complex installation by adding, "Swapping stacks is simple, as is getting the new AIR4ORCE on…". Notice Pete didn't find a need to remove the rear shock as some reviewers have mentioned previously. Worth pointing out, is that we've never had to remove a shock on any model motorcycle we have installed an AIR4ORCE on while developing and testing the AIR4ORCE.
The short velocity stack took Honda a step closer toward that two-stroke feeling by freeing up the motor to rev quicker. —Dirt Rider / June '11
Rich Simmons explains the AIR4ORCE benefits
The Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda team was the first Pro team to race with the AIR4ORCE tunable intake system. Their already potent Pro Circuit tuned motors were AIR4ORCE equipped for the last three MX Nationals of the 2010 season. So who better to describe the benefits than Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda team mechanic, Rich Simmons. Rich is the tuner for two-time 2011 Supercross Lites winner, Cole Seely.

Motocross Action magazine tests the AIR4ORCE
In the June issue of Motocross Action magazine the crew test the Moto Tassinari AIR4ORCE tunable intake system. The testing is done on both a 2011 Yamaha YZ250F and a 2011 Honda CRF250R.

Moto Magazine features the MVR-D team bikes
The UK based MVR-D team is featured in issue number 66 of MOTO Magazine. The feature describes what it takes to get the 2011 Honda CRF250R up to "GP Pace". Among other modifications the team choses to run the AIR4ORCE tunable intake system. MVR-D team boss Mark Chamberlain is impressed with the ability for "extra tunability" by pairing different length velocity stacks with different exhaust configurations.
The MVR-D team tested the AIR4ORCE while on a trip Stateside and liked it so much they brought it back to the UK with them and it is now a standard part on all team race bikes.
Sneak peek of the new GEICO Honda AIR4ORCE advert
