Introducing the 2024 Triumph 250cc Motocross Engine…
Triumph Releases Behind the Scenes interviews for new motocross bike
Triumph Motorcycles has released new details about the development of the chassis and engine of its eagerly awaited Motocross bike, ahead of its launch later this year.
In a series of ‘Vision to Reality’ films released by Triumph in the run-up to the reveal of the new bike, Triumph steps behind the scenes to interview the team behind the all-new aluminum chassis and engine.
Ambassador Ricky Carmichael said: “This engine has its own identity and I think one of the best things about it is the way that it’s designed and developed, which enables riders with a very wide range of abilities to be able to ride the bike. It’s light and compact and the power delivery is great for all forms of riders.”
The films feature a number of high-profile Triumph Racing managers, engineers and test riders involved in the development of the new bike, including from the SuperMotocross team Bobby Hewitt, Dave Arnold, Ivan Tedesco, Stephen ‘Scuba’ Westfall and from the MX2 team Vincent Bereni.
More information is expected to be released on September 5th when Ricky Carmichael rides the bike.

I’ve done a lot in the sport from racing to being around great people and all sides of the business. I think it came at a great time in my life. I felt like I had accomplished everything, so when I had the opportunity to be involved with such an iconic brand, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity. You talk about things that keep you up at night. Going racing is one of them, but the last 18 months there hasn’t been a whole lot of sleep. What’s different from racing to testing now, especially from the ground floor like this is, I mean, every option is on the table. We’re making big decisions. It’s been super interesting, learning a lot, and hopefully to continue to learn a lot. What I’ve been happy about is just how this engine has its own identity. We’ve taken the best from all the info that we know about, the components inside of the engine, you name it, I think. We’ve got a really good base. I think one of the best things about it is the way that it’s designed and developed. It gives a very wide range of abilities to be able to ride the bike.
That’s right. It’s light and compact, and the power delivery is great for all forms of riders as well. When we’re talking about the engine, we bring our other partner in, Vincent. Vincent, hello, how are you, my man? Busy, but good. It’s been a fun project, hasn’t it? Yeah, fun, and I was quite impressed by the first run of the engine on dyno. That was the first good surprise. The base product is quite incredible. Yeah, the power curve of the engine has really good low end response, low end torque.
Normally, everything’s give and take. You either have good low end or good top end, whichever you prefer, but I feel like this engine gives both of that.
I think it’s good for all levels of riding. If you’re a beginner, racing supercross, outdoors, cross the board, I think it’s a really great engine. What I think Triumph did is also very important is to combine the engineering around the engine to the chassis. You can have all the power in the world. You can have all the torque in the world, but if you don’t have the chassis, who’s connecting all this to the ground is clearly useless. Vince, I want to ask about Lamente Saul and what his role has been and how he’s helped in the engine development part of this project. We work with him in the past as the rider for the team, and we know he was really, really picky.
He will not sugarcoat any angle when something is not right. He will voice it right away. Yeah, I think a lot of that comes back to the testing process and having great groups in place, people with a lot of knowledge that have competed at a high level. I started working for American Honda when they just started their newly formed motocross race team, and then after 20 years of traveling on race circuits, then I went to work for research and development for another 20 years.
