Triumph Teases Its New Motocross & Enduro Bikes

It’s been nearly a year since Triumph announced that it is cooking up a lineup of all-new Motocross and Enduro motorcycles. And, ever since, it’s done a darn good job of keeping quiet about the whole project. Finally, Triumph tossed the dirt-loving world a bone and suggested that prototype testing is well underway.

“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,” Nick Bloor, CEO of Triumph Motorcycles said. “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.”

Triumph has its sights set on competition MX and Enduro bikes that will be accompanied by a new Triumph factory race program and a commitment to top tier championship racing in both the Motocross and Enduro series. Hence, Triumph brought in the expertise of two top-tier riders for the development process.

Global Motocross legend, Ricky Carmichael, and five-time Enduro World Champion, Iván Cervantes, joined Triumph as active partners in both bike testing and preparation for racing. At Triumph HQ, Ricky and Iván took the time to meet some passionate Triumph fans before deep diving into development workshops with the design team. Both play a unique role in prototype testing and providing feedback and input into the project.

“It was a pleasure to have both Ricky and Iván with us for a whole week and to continue to take full advantage of their experience with the development of our off-road prototypes,” said Steve Sargent, Chief Product Officer at Triumph. “Having both legendary motorcycle racers together to contribute to such a crucial phase of the bike’s development is invaluable.”

For those of us who take our dirt with a side of camping and long distance travel, Triumph’s announcement seems more geared towards bikes without blinkers or luggage racks. But, with adventure riding skewing smaller and lighter as of late, we’ll be eager to see if any of Triumph’s initial offerings double as a proper dual-sport tourer.
