Roadbike firm Triumph has this morning revealed plans for a range of competition motocross and enduro bikes.
In a landmark moment for Triumph and the MX and enduro racing world, an all new Triumph factory race programme has been set up with a commitment to top tier championship racing in both disciplines.
Coming hand-in-hand with this commitment, globallegends Ricky Carmichael and five-times Enduro World Champion Iván Cervantes have been wheeled in 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 programme and the full story on the product advantages the new Triumph MX and Enduro offer, will follow in the coming months.
“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,” said Carmichael.
“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.”
