Triumph Motorcycles has officially launched the new TF 250-X, revealing a class-leading power-to-weight ratio and the most complete specification package ever in the ultra-competitive 250cc motocross market.
Developed entirely by Triumph, in close collaboration with racing champions including Ricky Carmichael and Iván Cervantes, the new four-stroke competition model has been designed from the ground-up.
The performance racing powertrain features a forged aluminium piston and titanium valves, while 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.
The unique aluminium chassis has a high-strength, lightweight spine frame with twin cradles, designed for the optimum balance of performance, mass and flexibility, while the total weight of the bike, at 104kg wet, sets a new benchmark in the category.
With aggressive styling, the TF 250-X is slim, yet bold and will be instantly recognisable on the track thanks to distinctive Triumph Racing Yellow and black graphics. A long list of standard features sets it apart from rivals.
KYB suspension tops the list, with a 48mm AOS coil fork, forged and machined 7075-T6 aluminium triple clamps and a three-way piggyback coil rear shock. Premium Brembo braking features a twin 24mm piston floating front calliper.
A single 26mm piston floating rear calliper and Galfer 260mm front and 220mm rear discs complete the package. 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 round out the componentry. Optional add-ons include an Akrapovič full titanium exhaust system, XTrig hole shot device, and the MX Tune Pro wi-fi module already highlighted.
You can also choose an Athena LC-GPA launch control module with rider-selectable enhanced traction control and launch control settings, and an LED engine speed indicator, a performance gripper seat and seat cover or a bodywork replacement kit.
Triumph’s dealers will also be stocking a new clothing range, to go with the new TF 250-X. Launched in partnership with Alpinestars, it includes Motocross and Enduro boots and apparel.
The bike itself is even set to be backed by a mobile-optimised 24/7 online parts supply system, so customers can order for express delivery, straight from the track. The TF 250-X will start from $13,750 and orders can be placed at Triumph dealers now.
Bikes will be available for delivery from March 2024. For more information or to find your local dealer, visit the Triumph Australia website.
