Triumph Motorcycles made an announcement back in 2022 Motocross des Nations stating that their production motocross bikes will be arriving in late 2023, or early 2024. They plan to release the 250 four-stroke first, although they are developing 250 and 450 four-stroke alongside of each other. Triumph feels that the 250 class is their best starting point for racing in the MXGP series. To add to the news, Triumph has also become the official manufacturer of the MXGP series.
As per a trusted rumour in the motorcycle industry, it is speculated that Triumph may release the prototype of their upcoming motocross bike this weekend. It is believed that the company is keen on showcasing the bike to the public as early as possible, so as to generate excitement and anticipation amongst potential buyers. However, no official statement has been released by Triumph regarding the release of the prototype, and it remains to be seen whether the rumour will hold true or not. Nonetheless, the news of Triumph’s entry into the motocross market has already created a buzz in the industry, and enthusiasts are eagerly waiting to get a glimpse of what the company has in store for them.
Triumph Racing is based at Triumph’s Global Headquarters in Hinckley, UK, where the brand’s research, design, engineering development and prototype build are located, and the Motocross World Championship team will be based at Thierry’s race facility near Eindhoven in Holland, where race team personnel, operations and competition development will be housed. Engineering groups at the Triumph factory and the race team are working closely together on continuously enhancing chassis and engine performance through an intensive testing schedule underway in the USA, UK, and mainland Europe, building towards the first MX2 Grand Prix of the 2024 FIM Motocross World Championship.
Testing of the new Triumph motocross and enduro bikes is well underway and information on the specifications, performance characteristics, and components of each model will be released in due course, along with more news on Triumph Racing’s entry into further top-tier Championships and categories
Ricky Carmichael – Global Off-Road Ambassador, Triumph:
“I’m really excited about today’s news. It’s been a long time coming. Since the start of this project with Triumph, I have been amazed at just how hard everyone has been working. It must not go without mentioning, the whole R&D and engineering group that have been a part of the development of the motorcycles have done an absolutely incredible job. From the first stages of the prototypes, I was really taken back at how well the performance was, since then, being in the UK testing the newest developments, I can tell you that it has the capabilities of winning at the highest level and I personally believe the riders, from professional to amateur, across the entire range of off-road models, will really like what has been developed!”
