Inside Moto Tassinari
Scott and Steve Tassinari are the guys behind Moto Tassinari. Scott (left) handles the business side, while Steve gets to work on the bulk of design and production. You're listening to Steve throughout.
They have a cool shop set aside for working on their test fleet.
We love checking out the workbenches of guys who design cool moto parts. There's a little bit of everything here.
Here's a whole back of V-Force reed cages, which you'll find on everything from MX bikes to snowmobiles and scooters.
Here are some of the early prototypes of the Moto Tassinari Air4orce intakes.
Different length velocity stacks provide different power character characteristics for your bike, and it's easily tuneable.
You'll find the Air4orce intakes on just about all the factory-level 250s and 450s.
Swapping out the different length intake tubes is easy after you collapse the end.
While working on the intakes for the Suzuki RM-Z 450s, the Moto Tass crew discovered that the factory shock body was a bit bigger than the production version, so the Team Yoshimura Suzuki Racing team sent over a body that they could use for fitment.

You'll find V-Force reed cages on lots of OE applications. KTM is a big customer.
The V-Force reeds are pretty much a must-have two-stroke item.
Here's where reeds get cut out.

Whether it's a V-Force reed for two-strokes, or a Air4orce four-stroke intake, the Moto Tassinari crew are all about horsepower on the rear of your bike's engine. We stopped by their New Hampshire headquarters to find out more.
