    TRIUMPH ANNOUNCE THEIR INTENT TO ENTER THE MOTOCROSS AND ENDURO WORLDS

    Triumph is excited to announce that development is well under way on a comprehensive range of all-new competition Motocross and Enduro motorcycles. Joining our class leading and globally renowned motorcycle range this all new competition MX and Enduro family will bring all of Triumph’s engineering expertise to riders and racers worldwide.

    This will be accompanied by a landmark moment for Triumph and the MX and Enduro racing world with an all new Triumph factory race program, and a commitment to top tier championship racing in both Motocross and Enduro series.

    Coming hand-in-hand with this commitment, to race and win at the highest level in the sport, Triumph is proud to announce that global Motocross legend Ricky Carmichael and five-times Enduro World Champion Iván Cervantes have joined the Triumph family as active partners in both bike testing and preparation for racing.

    An announcement of the timetable for the launch and reveal of the motorcycles, as well as the racing program and the full story on the product advantages the new Triumph MX and Enduro offer, will follow in the coming months.

    “Today’s announcement marks the beginning of a new chapter for the Triumph brand, which everyone at Triumph is incredibly excited to be part of. We are 100% committed to making a long-lasting impact in this highly competitive and demanding world, with a single-minded ambition to deliver a winning motorcycle line-up for a whole new generation of Triumph riders” - Nick Bloor: CEO Triumph Motorcycles Ltd

    “I have loved Triumph motorcycles right from being a small kid, seeing them in films and on television. So to be working with Triumph from the beginning of this project, is an amazing opportunity for me, not just because it is working with one of the world’s greatest motorcycle brands, but also for being part of building something from zero. It is a dream come true for any racer! Like me, everyone I am working with at Triumph is focused to make the bikes the best they can be. I cannot wait to see the bikes competing at a world level, but I also look forward to when I can stand in a Triumph dealer and know I was part of this very special project.” - Ivan Cervantes

    “I am thrilled to announce that I am joining the Triumph family and even more excited to be a part of their new endeavour into the off-road product category. This is an incredible opportunity for me to join this historic brand, and I am honoured and humbled to be a part of the development and release of their off-road motorcycles. Building something from the ground up is something that really is intriguing to me at this stage of my career. What is impressive to me is Triumph's dedication, and passion to develop a top of the class product. Everyone that I have been involved with in this project from the engineers, design groups, R&D dept., etc., have shown extreme passion for what they are doing and that is a recipe for success and something that I love being a part of. We all share that same passion, and that's to be the best. If you are familiar with the Triumph brand, you already know the quality of craftsmanship is top shelf, and the off-road models will follow suit to their past! Not only are these exciting times for me, but it's an exciting time for the off-road industry to be adding another brand to the mix and the opportunities that lie ahead for all off-road consumers. I can’t wait to see the reactions when these models hit the dealer's showroom floors." - Ricky Carmichael

    Will be interesting to watch as it develops. I wonder if they are starting with a clean sheet design or sourcing components from other suppliers.
    In my youth I thought I could be a racer and tried my luck with a Triumph Tiger Cub. I was to slow and we couldn't keep a crankshaft in the Cub motor. With their current level of quality I'm sure they will do better

    I have a vague memory of seeing an article about a year ago about a collaboration between Triumph and Fantic. I'll see if I can find it again.

    I was a kid then or slightly before my time, however I am well aware of the do-all motorbikes of that era, using mostly the same engine. The announcement they made with those riders is saying they are going after the serious market with the Japanese and KTM, etc. THAT is new grounds for them compared to what they currently make, in which none of the current engines fit that bill.

    That's an extremely competitive market to be entering let alone trying to race with the big guys.

    Yes, agreed. Triumph has impressed many times since their "re-birth". I have little doubt that if they set their sights on motocross and enduro bikes that they will have quite an impact.
