All-new 250 four-stroke motocross model released by British brand.
Triumph Motorcycles has officially launched its all-new TF 250-X, revealing an extensive range of tailored features as the brand enters into the ultra-competitive 250cc four-stroke motocross market.
Developed entirely by Triumph, in close collaboration with racing champions including Ricky Carmichael and Ivan Cervantes, the new four-stroke competition model is an all-new ground-up design. The performance racing powertrain and unique aluminium chassis are ultra-compact and super-light, with all the best components on the market, already fitted out of the crate.
With a focused, aggressive style, the TF 250-X is slim, yet bold and will be instantly recognisable on the track with its minimal and lightweight presence and distinctive Triumph Racing yellow and black graphics scheme.
Dealers will be offering sales, servicing, parts and a new dedicated range of apparel, backed by a mobile-optimised 24/7 online parts supply system, so customers can order for express delivery, straight from the track.
Triumph has developed an all-new performance racing powertrain – a competition four-stroke single, that is ultra-compact and super-light. With a forged aluminium piston and titanium valves, the engine also has diamond-like carbon low-friction coatings, lightweight magnesium covers and an Exedy Belleville 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, programmable engine management system.
The unique aluminium chassis has a high-strength, lightweight spine frame with twin cradles, designed for the optimum balance of performance, mass and flexibility. The total weight of the bike will see the new TF 250-X set 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.
The TF 250-X features premium, top-tier componentry throughout, adding up to an unrivalled specification for a production bike in this category. KYB suspension tops the list, with 48mm AOS coil forks, forged and machined 7075-T6 aluminium triple clamps and a three-way piggyback coil rear shock.
The premium 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. DirtStar 7000 Series aluminium rims and machined aluminium hubs are fitted with Pirelli Scorpion MX32 mid-soft tyres. Pro-Taper ACF carbon core bars and ODI half-waffle lock-on grips complete the set up.
The TF 250-X will start from $13,750 and orders can be placed at Triumph dealers now, with bikes available for delivery from March 2024.
