Triumph’s All-New TF 250-X Motocross Bike

In a triumphant display of creativity and determination, Triumph has finally unveiled their highly-anticipated motocross bike. This ambitious project was announced back in 2021, when Triumph boldly declared their dedication to entering the cutthroat enduro segment with a fully-supported racing program. After a painstakingly slow unveiling process, the TF 250-X has emerged as Triumph’s thrilling new off-road marvel.

Developed entirely by Triumph in close collaboration with racing champions including Ricky Carmichael and Iván Cervantes, the fresh competition model is an all-new ground-up design. According to Triumph, the powerplant and aluminum chassis are ultra compact and light, with all the best components on the market already fitted out of the crate.

At the heart of the TF 250-X is an all-new four stroke performance racing powertrain with a forged aluminum piston and titanium valves. The engine also has diamond-like carbon low-friction coatings, lightweight magnesium covers, and an Exedy Belleville hydraulic clutch.

Advanced engine management and tunability is complemented by the optional accessory MX Tune Pro app, enabling riders to use real-time user selectable mapping, a real-time engine sensor dashboard, and live diagnostic functionality, through a controlled and programmable engine management system.

Housing the powerplant is an aluminum chassis featuring a high-strength, lightweight spine frame with twin cradles, designed for the optimum balance of performance, mass, and flexibility. With a wet weight of 229 lbs (104kg), Triumph claims the TF 250-X sets a new benchmark for the best ‘power-to-weight’ ratio in the category. It also delivers a high level of tunability to suit different riders and styles. “Whether you’re a professional rider or an amateur rider, you will not be disappointed,” says Carmichael.

The TF 250-X features premium componentry throughout, which Triumph says comprises one of the best top-tier specification packages for a production bike in this category. KYB suspension tops the list, with 48mm AOS coil forks, forged and machined 7075-T6 aluminum triple clamps, and a three-way piggyback coil rear shock. The bike’s forks offer 12.2 in (310 mm) of suspension travel, while out back the shock offers 12 in (305 mm) of travel. Not surprising for a performance MX machine, the seat height is a whopping 37.8 in (960 mm).

The premium Brembo braking system features twin 24mm piston floating front calipers, a single 26mm piston floating rear caliper, and Galfer 260mm front and 220mm rear discs. The DirtStar 7000 Series aluminum rims and machined aluminum hubs are fitted with Pirelli Scorpion MX32 mid-soft tires. Finally, Pro-Taper ACF carbon core bars and ODI half-waffle lock on grips complete the set up.

Specialist Triumph MX Dealers

From Spring 2024, specialist Triumph Off-Road / Dual Sport dealers will begin carrying the new Triumph off-road product. These Triumph dealers will be fully trained to provide a comprehensive sales, service, parts, clothing, and race support experience that meets the needs and expectations of off-road riders.

This network will be backed up with a unique 24/7 parts and accessories supply system. Available from the Triumph website, the new electronic parts and accessory catalog will be fully optimized for mobile, so riders can search for parts and place orders while out at the track. Riders can select what they need, check availability and price, and place an order for express delivery, standard delivery, or click and collect from their local Triumph off-road dealer.

Racing Plans

Triumph has announced they will field the all-new TF 250-X motorcycles in the 2024 World Championship and we can’t wait to see their new off-road weapon in action. Triumph Racing will compete with a factory supported program set-up in partnership with Thierry Chizat-Suzzoni, one of the sport’s most experienced and successful team owners. Thierry will start his campaign with two of Triumph’s all-new 250cc 4-stroke MX bikes in the 2024 MX2 class, supported by Monster Energy.
