The company launched the Rumbler 350 in Australia at a cost of AUD 6,790 (Rs 3.41 lakh). A trademark issue forced Royal Enfield to go with another name for the bike in Australia – the Rumbler 350 is basically the Thunderbird 350 that’s sold here.
The bike has orange reflectors on the fork, which is mandatory in Australia, but otherwise the motorcycle remains identical to the Thunderbird 350 that is sold in India. The bike will retail as part of the LAMS (Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme) offering in Australia.
The bike is powered by the same air-cooled, 346cc single-cylinder engine found on the Thunderbird, Classic and Bullet 350 in India. The engine makes 19.8hp and 28Nm and sends power via a five-speed gearbox. The Australian Rumbler 350 is only available in three colours - Stone, Marine and Lightning.
