Saturday, September 23, 2023 marked the season finale of the Super Motocross World Championship at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Fittingly, the event was also when Triumph Motorcycles held the first public unveiling of its 250cc motocross machine. Those who attended the event in person got a little extra as part of the show – but don’t worry if you can’t make it, because there’s video.
If you’ve been following Triumph’s motocross developments, you already know that Ricky Carmichael has been involved from the beginning. Jeff „Six Time” Stanton was one of two riders to take Triumph’s new bikes into the air at the SMX event, piloting the production bike for the assembled crowd. While Stanton’s bike was a future production bike, Carmichael’s bike had some unspecified changes and featured his own graphics.
On both occasions, the pair were happy to show what the new Triumph 250cc MX bike can do and what it looks like. The official presentation included the first public announcement of the bike’s full reveal, presumably with all the specs and details everyone was hungry for. You might have thought it would be coming at EICMA 2023, but nope—instead, it’s happening as soon as November 28, 2023.

„I’m really excited to finally show the fans what we’ve been working on for the past 4 years. The bikes look good, they feel good, they’re fast. I’m really happy with what we’ve delivered and I can’t wait to share the final details on November 28,” he said. Carmichael said in a statement issued after the presentation.
„The Coliseum is a special place for me and it’s an absolute honor to win here again. The new graphics are like nothing else in the paddock and give the bike a very sharp and unique new look, which I think fans will love,” said Stanton, who is currently the manager of Triumph’s Adventure Experience in the US. He also said.
The Triumph 250cc MX Reveal was a highlight of the Supermotocross World Championship final event, finishing second in both motos of the evening and in the overall championship.
Team Honda HRC’s Chase Sexton came into the evening with the points lead but lost the inaugural championship and finished third. Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing’s Cooper Webb finished third on the podium for the evening and fourth in the overall championship.
