Triumph Motorcycles has finally taken the wraps off their first-ever motocross machine – the TF 250-X. The British motorcycle manufacturer began to build the hype surrounding the TF 250-X more than a year ago, with the brand giving glimpses of the new bike through a host of teasers. Now that this motorcycle has been unveiled, we can say that the Triumph TF 250-X is marked out by slim bodywork for maximum rider manoeuvrability, a flat seat, and upswept exhaust. Painted in Triumph Racing Yellow with Black and White colours, the motocross bike has striking looks.
