Naturally, our favorite Hinckley bike brand wouldn’t let just anyone roll their new motocross machine into the Saturday spotlight. Saturday eve saw Jeff ‘Six Time’ Stanton and Ricky Carmichael (both riders that played a heavy part in the final product) astride Triumph’s MX 250, Stanton being aboard the production-spec version and Carmichael showing off the non-standard version.
I’m very happy to finally be able to show the public what we’ve been working on for the last four years. The bike is great, it looks great, and it’s fast. I’m very pleased with what we’ve been able to do, and I can’t wait for November 28th to show you all the details.”
The Colosseum is a special place for me, and coming back here on a Triumph is an honor. The look of the bike is like nothing else in the paddock and gives it a very aggressive and distinctive ‘look’ that the fans will love.”
