Triumph has finally revealed pictures and videos of its new motocross bike getting a proper test by none other than the GOAT: Ricky Carmichael. Joined by fellow Triumph tester Evan Ferry, the two rip around the track and give their thoughts on this new surprise contender in the motocross world.

In case you didn't know, Triumph shocked the moto community when it announced it was going motocross and enduro racing. Not only that, but it was doing it in a big way – by hiring Ricky Carmichael and Ivan Cervantes to lead the development charge. Recently, Triumph revealed the engine for the motocross challenger – or at least one of them, which we suspect to be the 250cc Single. Triumph is also set to compete in the 450 class as well.

Now that the engine has been revealed, we finally get footage of the bike in action, which is especially cool with RC at the controls. There aren't a lot of specifics thrown our way other than the riders really like the agility of the frame and the rideability of the engine. Unsurprisingly, details about the engine or chassis – or any other components – weren't talked about. But from some of the shots we can see there is a selection of different buttons on the left bar. We assume this is for things like launch control or power modes.

This is the third in a series of sneak peak videos produced by Triumph. Past videos are available on the Official Triumph YouTube channel. As more elements of the bike, and the official reveal, are known, we'll be posting about them here.
