The Moto Tassinari AIR4ORCE can be found in many of the bikes of top teams in the British MX series
The prestigious ACU British motocross championship brings out some of the finest in motocross machinery, and 2012 is looking be no exception. MOTO UK magazine profiles many of the contenders in the latest issue. The Moto Tassinari AIR4ORCE tunable intake system can be found on many of the top teams including the Route 77 Energy MVR-D Honda, Samsung Yamaha and APICO Suzuki teams. With the addition of the recently released AIR4ORCE for the KTM 250SX-F and KTM 350SX-F we're looking forward to working with even more teams for the upcoming season.
An in-depth look at the AIR4ORCE equipped Rockstar Star/Valli Yamaha YZ250F of Ryan Sipes
In the latest installment of SPANNER, in the May 2012 issue of Transworld Motocross magazine the AIR4ORCE equipped Yamaha YZ250F of Ryan Sipes is the featured bike. Ryan Sipes' mechanic Scott Adkins walks you through the various upgrades found on the Rockstar Star/Valli Yamaha YZ250Fs. Of the AIR4ORCE tunable intake system, Scott says, "The higher volume of the Moto Tassinari AIR4ORCE helps to get more air into the engine instantly."
Zach Osborne of the Monster Energy Yamaha GP team and his AIR4ORCE equipped YZ250F
Moto Tassinari has been sponsoring Steve Dixon and his team (currently Monster Energy Yamaha) with the AIR4ORCE intake system for their Yamaha YZ250Fs for past two seasons. With the addition of US based rider, Zach Osborne the team has quite a following on both sides of the pond. It was a pleasure to see Zach Osborne come over and race the first four rounds of the 2012 Supercross series in the Lites West Coast division before he completes his final season in the MX2 class. Zach Osborne hopes to come back to America and race full-time beginning with the 2013 season.
Unfortunately Zach just had a recent get-off that has left him with a list of injuries that will see him miss the opening round of the upcoming GP season. Here's wishing Zach a quick and full recovery. At least in the meantime he can admire the cover of issue 78 of MOTO UK magazine.
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.
The Motocross Action product tests covers everything from fitment to dyno and on-track results and impressions. On the dyno, testing showed a gain of one more horsepower at peak on the Yamaha YZ250F.
