2024 Triumph TF-250X Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Performance Racing Powertrain
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.

Aluminium Chassis
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.

Top Tier Specification
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.

Competition Accessories
In addition to the high level of specification already included as standard, Triumph has worked with the biggest, premium brands to create a dedicated range of competition accessories to further enhance performance and capability.

These accessories include:

  • Akrapovič full titanium exhaust system

  • MX Tune Pro wi-fi module

Specialist Triumph MX Centres
From Spring 2024, new specialist Triumph Motocross and Enduro centres will be opening in Europe, Australia and USA, with 300 opening by the end of 2024. These are dedicated, fully trained, specialist off-road centres, providing sales, servicing, parts, clothing and race support.

This network is backed up with a unique 24/7 parts and accessories supply system.

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 motocross dealer.

Racing Pedigree
Triumph’s globally renowned engineering teams bring expertise in precision engineering, innovation and award-winning quality. These teams are behind Triumph’s greatest modern racing achievements, including the Moto2TM championship where Triumph’s engines have helped to transform the class, setting new Moto2 lap and speed records at tracks around the world. From factory World Supersport racing, to the Isle of Man TT, earning multiple Supersport wins, and even a win at Daytona 200, the teams are focused on success.

The team has been supported by some of the biggest names in motocross, including the greatest MX rider of all time, Ricky Carmichael. He has worked with Triumph’s chassis and engine teams across the journey of scoping, prototyping, testing and development.

Ricky Carmichael said: “The TF 250-X is an incredible bike. This is the bike that we set out to build. When you talk about the chassis, the powertrain, the components – it’s the best of everything you could ever want. And whether you’re a professional rider or an amateur rider, you will not be disappointed. I love this bike, it’s been such an honour to part of a project with such an iconic brand.”

Iván Cervantes, five times enduro world champion, five times Spanish MX champion and Dakar finisher has also worked across the project with Triumph’s in-house teams to bring his experience to the Triumph bike development and prototyping.

With a team like this and the TF 250-X on the start line, Triumph is well placed to begin its motocross racing programme in 2024. Entering the prestigious FIM Motocross World Championship for 2024, Triumph Racing will compete with a factory supported programme set-up in partnership with Thierry Chizat-Suzzoni, one of the sport’s most experienced and successful team owners, who will start his campaign with two of Triumph’s all-new 250cc 4-stroke MX bikes in the 2024 MX2 class, supported by new sponsor, Monster Energy.

Underpinning the commitment to win, Team Manager Vincent Bereni, is leading a crew of highly experienced technical staff all focused on bringing Triumph to the pinnacle of racing performance. Thierry and Vincent’s past racing record speaks for itself – with over 80 MXGP World Championship victories.

Clément Desalle, who joined the team as test rider, is a very experienced racer, competing at the highest level in the MXGP World Championship for 15 years. As one of the most consistent racers in the series, he claimed three Vice Champion finishes, was third in the World Championship three times and twice finished fourth. Finishing on the top step of the podium 23 times in his career, he was also crowned the Pro Open Belgian champion.

Triumph Racing’s US SuperMotocross World Championship Team is headed up by the highly talented Bobby Hewitt and team manager Steve ‘Scuba’ Westfall – this duo have proved over and over that they know how to win. They brought in a crack team including Dave Arnold, an industry AMA Hall of Fame legend for chassis development and Dudley Cramond, with over 25 years of experience of building race winning engines. The team will field the all-new TF 250-X’s in the 2024 World Championship.

OPTIMIZED FOR THE WIN
The All-New TF 250-X combines an all-new lightweight chassis, with best-in-class production suspension and brakes, and a new ultra-compact 250cc powertrain for maximum agility and control, to deliver the ultimate lightweight MX package.

The central spine with twin cradle design is unique to Triumph. The brushed aluminum frame has incredible strength and flexibility for the most punishing conditions. Internal frame machining details result in mass optimization, stiffness tuning, and race-optimized longitudinal, lateral, and torsional stiffness.

The satin-brushed hand-welded aluminum frame, with in-mold graphics technology, hydroformed swingarm, and the use of only the highest-quality fasteners and bearings are key details vital to low weight and tough off-road durability.

ProTaper ACF bars with a carbon core allow a thinner aluminum wall for a 20% reduction in weight (vs all-aluminum) and unrivaled impact-absorbing flex. ODI Half Waffle lock-on grips complete this killer package.

The chassis combines world-class precision and agility to deliver a winning performance at the highest level. With an aggressive minimalist design, it boasts best-in-class agility, manageability, and power-to-weight ratio. Pirelli Scorpion MX32 Mid Soft tires deliver traction on a variety of surfaces with excellent braking characteristics and cornering side grip. Strength-sapping weather and worsening track conditions can be managed with rider-selectable traction control for enhanced control when you need it.

The TF 250-X boasts class-leading specification and includes the most wanted features in MX racing. Whether you’re pulling away from the starting gate or racing to the finish line, the high-spec Brembo floating brake calipers and Galfer discs will provide consistent lever feel, along with the stopping power required for race-winning performance. To further enhance the bike’s performance, best-in-class KYB 48mm (1.88in) upside-down AOS coil forks are braced by lightweight 7075-T6 forged and machined aluminum yokes. Additionally, a KYB rear shock with a unique hollow mount ensures that finding the perfect setup is a breeze.

The perfect launch isn’t always enough. Holeshot Assist enables clutchless, throttle-pinned gear changes through second to fifth gear, to make sure you arrive at the first turn, first.

Add the accessory fit Athena LC-GPA Launch Control Module for even more dialed starts.

 

Bespoke, intuitive switch cubes with multi-function racer technology allow easy on-the-fly activation of launch control, traction control, engine maps and holeshot assist.

The latest in MX-specific technology, all at the press of a button. Nail every launch, grab every holeshot, and alter the power delivery to suit riding style and track conditions.

PODIUM READY
Slim, aggressive bodywork is designed for optimum rider maneuverability and a minimal, lightweight stance and presence. The TF 250-X is unmistakably a Triumph.

Instantly identifiable on the podium, the striking and dynamic Triumph Racing Yellow, Black, and White trim sets the TF 250-X apart from the pursuing pack.

Bold and impactful styling with durability for a fresh and distinctive look that won’t fade, the slim, aggressive, and lightweight TF 250-X is designed for maximum rider maneuverability.
