Triumph Motorcycles has officially launched the new TF 250-X, featuring a class-leading power-to-weight ratio and a comprehensive specification package for the ultra-competitive 250cc motocross market.

Developed by Triumph’s engineers in collaboration with motocross champions like Ricky Carmichael and Iván Cervantes, the four-stroke competition model is a ground-up design. The performance racing powertrain and aluminum chassis are compact and lightweight, equipped with top-tier components.

The TF 250-X boasts a focused, aggressive style with a slim and bold design, instantly recognizable on the track. It comes in Triumph Racing Yellow and black graphics scheme.

Triumph Motorcycles’ Chief Product Manager, Steve Sargent, said: “The launch of the TF 250-X is the culmination of a significant commitment and investment from Triumph, to not just bring a totally new bike to the motocross world, but to deliver a winning performance. To achieve this, we are focused on delivering the most complete package for any riding level, from champion to amateur.

“This bike is 100% Triumph, conceived, designed, developed and manufactured by our world leading chassis and engine teams, with expert support from our racing champions. We started with a blank sheet of paper and began an all-new ground-up design, including a new engine, new chassis and new electronics.”

Performance Racing Powertrain:
Triumph presents an all-new performance racing powertrain, a competition four-stroke single that is ultra-compact and lightweight. The engine includes a forged aluminum piston, titanium valves, diamond-like carbon low-friction coatings, lightweight magnesium covers, and an Exedy Belleville clutch. The bike offers advanced engine management with tunability, including the optional MX Tune Pro app for real-time mapping and live diagnostic functionality.

Aluminium Chassis:
The unique aluminum chassis features a high-strength, lightweight spine frame with twin cradles, providing optimal balance of performance, mass, and flexibility. The total weight sets a new benchmark for the best ‘power-to-weight’ ratio in the category. The chassis also offers tunability for different riders and styles.

Top-Tier Specification:
The TF 250-X includes premium componentry, such as KYB suspension with 48mm AOS coil forks, forged and machined 7075-T6 aluminum triple clamps, and a three-way piggyback coil rear shock. The Brembo braking system features twin 24mm piston floating front caliper, a single 26mm piston floating rear caliper, and Galfer 260mm front and 220mm rear discs. It comes with DirtStar 7000 Series aluminum rims, Pirelli Scorpion MX32 mid-soft tires, Pro-Taper ACF carbon core bars, and ODI half-waffle lock-on grips.

Racing Pedigree
Triumph’s globally renowned engineering teams bring expertise in precision engineering, innovation and award-winning quality. These teams are behind Triumph’s greatest modern racing achievements, including the Moto2TM championship where Triumph’s engines have helped to transform the class, setting new Moto2 lap and speed records at tracks around the world. From factory World Supersport racing, to the Isle of Man TT, earning multiple Supersport wins, and even a win at Daytona 200, the teams are focused on success.

The team has been supported by some of the biggest names in motocross, including the greatest MX rider of all time, Ricky Carmichael. He has worked with Triumph’s chassis and engine teams across the journey of scoping, prototyping, testing and development.

Ricky Carmichael said: “The TF 250-X is an incredible bike. This is the bike that we set out to build. When you talk about the chassis, the powertrain, the components – it’s the best of everything you could ever want. And whether you’re a professional rider or an amateur rider, you will not be disappointed. I love this bike, it’s been such an honour to part of a project with such an iconic brand.”

Iván Cervantes, five times enduro world champion, five times Spanish MX champion and Dakar finisher has also worked across the project with Triumph’s in-house teams to bring his experience to the Triumph bike development and prototyping.

With a team like this and the TF 250-X on the start line, Triumph is well placed to begin its motocross racing programme in 2024. Entering the prestigious FIM Motocross World Championship for 2024, Triumph Racing will compete with a factory supported programme set-up in partnership with Thierry Chizat-Suzzoni, one of the sport’s most experienced and successful team owners, who will start his campaign with two of Triumph’s all-new 250cc 4-stroke MX bikes in the 2024 MX2 class, supported by new sponsor, Monster Energy.

Underpinning the commitment to win, Team Manager Vincent Bereni, is leading a crew of highly experienced technical staff all focused on bringing Triumph to the pinnacle of racing performance. Thierry and Vincent’s past racing record speaks for itself – with over 80 MXGP World Championship victories.

Clément Desalle, who joined the team as test rider, is a very experienced racer, competing at the highest level in the MXGP World Championship for 15 years. As one of the most consistent racers in the series, he claimed three Vice Champion finishes, was third in the World Championship three times and twice finished fourth. Finishing on the top step of the podium 23 times in his career, he was also crowned the Pro Open Belgian champion.

Triumph Racing’s US SuperMotocross World Championship Team is headed up by the highly talented Bobby Hewitt and team manager Steve ‘Scuba’ Westfall – this duo have proved over and over that they know how to win. They brought in a crack team including Dave Arnold, an industry AMA Hall of Fame legend for chassis development and Dudley Cramond, with over 25 years of experience of building race winning engines. The team will field the all-new TF 250-X’s in the 2024 World Championship.

On the dirt

The TF 250-X will start from £9,795 ($18,693 AU) and orders can be placed now at Triumph’s new motocross dealers, with bikes available for delivery from Spring 2024. Watch the launch film on YouTube. For more information or to find your local dealer visit the Triumph website.
