Having already ridden a parade lap of Silverstone onboard the Moto2 Triumph Daytona test bike, Toseland will take a lap of the Valencia circuit on November 18, 2018 and will also ride the prototype onto the Triumph stage at Eicma 2018.
"I am delighted to have partnered with Triumph Motorcycles at this pivotal time in their history," said Toseland. "There is some nice symmetry to the fact that they are returning to high level, factory supported racing, and have simultaneously facilitated a golden opportunity for me to enjoying riding again for the first time in many years."
Silverstone was the first time Toseland had donned his leathers since injury forced him into early retirement in 2011. Since then, he has adopted a role as a pundit, commentator and TV presenter.

Carl Fogarty is a previous ambassador for Triumph, but he's most recently been associated with another British brand, CCM.
