Jalek Swoll and Evan Ferry turned laps on Triumph TF 250-X for the very first time on an official Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship track today. "This weekend marks a historic moment for Triumph,” said Nick Bloor, CEO Triumph Motorcycles. “Our brand-new TF 250-X will be making its debut in the first round of the East Coast 250 SuperMotocross World Championship, while our MX2 team will be competing in their first pre-season race in Spain.” And then on Tuesday, Dealers will be treated to seeing the new MX machines at AIMExpo (Booth #5023).
“Seeing this bike on the start line, will be the culmination of years of hard work from both our world class engineering teams, and our racing teams, who have all shared the same passion and ambition to develop the bike into a competitive package,” noted Bloor. “Our athletes have all adapted to the bike quickly, enabling them to be laser-focused on their race preparations, and we are all excited to see what Evan and Jalek can do with the bike, in the heat of competition.”
“Right now, I'm feeling very calm and confident about the team, the riders, our bike,” added Team Principal Bobby Hewitt, “and I try not to think too much about the significance of what Saturday means to me, but more importantly, what it means for Triumph Motorcycles. We, just like every other team, have been working 24/7 making sure we have everything we need before the race rig leaves for Detroit, although I don't think many people truly understand the countless hours of dedication, sacrifice, and commitment that is required to get to this point.”
After the nine-round 250SX East series finishes, the team will be boosted by Joey Savatgy joining the line-up to tackle the AMA Pro Motocross 250 series starting May 25 at Fox Raceway, alongside Swoll and Ferry. For the 2025 season Triumph will field its new 450cc bike in the SuperMotocross World Championship.”
Dealers who miss the debut in Detroit and AIMExpo can expect to see deliveries later this Spring.
