Vimal Sumbly Joins Royal En­field

Bike India - - IGNITION -

VIMAL SUMBLY HAS RE­LIN­QUISHED HIS PO­SI­TION AS MD OF TRI­UMPH MO­TOR­CY­CLE In­dia to j oin Royal En­field as their head of Asia-Pa­cific. Ini­tially, he will be based in Gu­ru­gram, Haryana, and will later move to Thai­land to over­see Royal En­field’s Asia-Pa­cific op­er­a­tions.

Vimal Sumbly re­cently said on the so­cial me­dia that he had made the move to Royal En­field, putting an end to all ru­mours sur­round­ing his next em­ployer. In­ci­den­tally, spec­u­la­tion about his next move had been rife ever since he left Tri­umph.

Sumbly was in­stru­men­tal in es­tab­lish­ing the Bri­tish brand’s pres­ence here in In­dia back in 2013 and was one of the driv­ing forces be­hind its rapid growth on our shores.

Prior to Tri­umph, Sumbly worked for Ba­jaj Auto and was in­volved in many of the com­pany’s ma­jor ini­tia­tives.

Royal En­field have been steadily gain­ing ground in In­dia and over­seas over the last few years and are on the verge of a po­ten­tial fur­ther up­swing with the launch of the 650-cc twins towards the end of this year.

We wish Vimal Sumbly the best in his new role at Royal En­field.
