Rumble Motors is a Swedish/American electric vehicle company that designs and manufactures electric scooters. Our vision is to develop sustainable, affordable and enjoyable vehicles that everyone can afford. Rumble Motors was founded as an LLC in 2018 following years of cutting edge research. Rapidly outgrowing this corporate structure, Rumble Motors, Inc was born in 2019. Stagnation in the automotive industry has created a fertile ground for Rumble Motors to leverage new technology into an underserved market while also being responsible global citizens.
Since inception, Rumble Motors has developed three generations of vehicles. Despite this relentless pace of product development, it has shipped over 200 units. Customers to date have been private individuals, but Rumble Motors is aggressively courting distributors. With its completed production facility in Sweden and a new Sacramento facility currently in the planning stage, the company believes it can increase the production schedule of third-generation e-Bikes by tenfold.
Who Said "Fun to Ride" can't be Eco-Friendly?
At Rumble Motors, solving problems customers didn't know they had is a key focus. A prime example was adding engine noises to the bikes. This feature, unique to Rumble's bikes, not only increases safety but exemplifies a commitment to "Make Green Fun", demonstrating that quality alternatives to gas-guzzling transport can be both affordable and enjoyable.
Rumble Motors: Zero Emission Electric Bikes
Every design choice Rumble makes is backed by market research. The added engine sounds came about from specific market research and years of listening to customers. E-Bike enthusiasts had specifically stated that they missed their engine sounds, and Rumble listened. Engine sounds offer two main advantages:
Rumble Motors presents a new cutting edge design and technology - our namesake electric scooter. The design and shape is inspired by a Cafe Racer bike and it perfectly melds past and future into a powerful, yet beautiful package.
The Rumble Scrambler is the latest Cafe Racer bike from Rumble Motors. This beauty is designed to take you back to 1977 when the founders of Rumble Motors created their very first bike.
Rumble Motors plans to launch a campaign on Indiegogo for the revolutionary Rumble AIR. Designed to be the solution for urban commuting & recreation alike; the Rumble Air promises to turn heads. Breathe deeply, and let the boosts of speed and excitement breeze across your senses. Can you imagine the smile on your face riding a Rumble Air? We at Rumble Motors thought so too.
So look for the Rumble Air Indiegogo campaign to launch on the heels of our Start Engine Campaign. Invest TODAY to make your Rumble Air a reality.
Moon Walker Update: The Moon Walker is still in production, however due to investor comments we will be prioritizing the Rumble Air.
Rumble is currently completing the planning of the construction of its main factory in Sacramento, California. This facility will serve as the hub moving forward for all operations. It will serve as the main manufacturing location for its United States, Canadian and South American markets. The Rumble Motors factory in Sweden will serve as the hub for its European market, leveraging the Schengen economic zone policies for electric vehicles. Our plan is for the two facilities to increase output capacity to 2600 bikes per year, dwarfing current production of 200 per year and enabling Rumble to move beyond its current made-to-order model.
Product acceptance, pilot runs, and pre-production testing will be performed in Sacramento as Rumble forges partnerships around the globe. Training for key personnel will also be conducted in Sacramento to ensure the highest standards are maintained.
In addition to the main factory, global logistics, and R&D will be also be located in Sacramento. This will ensure cost and quality control across Rumble's diverse markets. Rumble Motors is aggressively pursuing ways to expand production capacity. Rumble is looking to sign licensing agreements with partners in both the US and Europe which will allow expansion into markets faster providing local advantages that are not available if Rumble were to handle full distribution of bikes themselves.
Rumble is always looking for innovative ways to improve its bikes. One feature currently in development is the use of telematics (widely called the Internet of Things) to enable products to be used in fleet operations. This not only creates a great business model for the bikes beyond the consumer market, but it will also enable rapid refinement of the bike's efficiency. The tracking, remote diagnostics, and real-time vehicle statistics will greatly accelerate product development.
The ultimate goal will be to have a touch panel interface on the bikes themselves that can be configured for taxi or freight operations. We believe remote diagnostics and updates will make the vehicles very attractive to both consumers and urban fleet operations.
In keeping with their core design principle of Modular Design, the next versions of the Rumble Motors product Lines will feature consumer replaceable batteries. This is a key step forward in entering the Fleet and Delivery Markets. At just 10-15kg, these batteries will be easily swapped for recharging, allowing for extended vehicle operations with very little downtime.
Rumble Motors is never satisfied. Originally expecting a 4-6 year timeline for solar panel technology to be viable as an addition to their bikes, that has now been shattered. At the end of Q4 in 2022, a partner was found it can produce a unique flexible panel that will be a perfect addition. Currently undergoing Rumble's rigorous testing protocols, once released it will be another e-bike world first. Rumble's flagship bike will sport the form-fitting panels, allowing it to recharge while turning heads as you grab a coffee or a bite to eat with friends.
The demand for electric vehicles, motorcycles, in particular, continues to grow worldwide. If the information provided by the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) is any clue, interest is surging throughout Europe, the US, and Asia.
To our knowledge, currently, major manufacturers are focused on either small scooters or full-sized vehicles and only small startups offer vehicles in the same class as Rumble Motors. This has left consumers with very limited options between tiny one person standing scooters and full-sized electric cars or motorcycles. Seeking to capitalize on this opportunity Rumble looks to fill the gap with increased manufacturing capacity and aggressive pursuit of partnerships worldwide.
Beyond the obvious consumer market for electric bikes, Rumble will be expanding into the commercial space as well. Coming in 2023 Rumble will be launching Rumble GoGo. Rumble's vehicles have zero emissions and are a perfect fit for the rapidly expanding urban delivery market, particularly the "final kilometer" portion of the delivery. Rumble GoGo will bring an easy to use and environmentally friendly option to the market while creating new jobs at low overhead with an easy to use delivery app. All while allowing delivery companies to showcase their commitment to a greener future.
Rumble's ideal customer cares about the environment but realizes this doesn’t need to come at the expense of beauty or the thrill of the ride. This dedication to a Cafe Racer heritage has given Rumble a diverse range of customers from rural towns to Silicon Valley. Rumble taps into the universal thrill of a finely made machine while being a responsible global citizen.
The Electric Vehicle Initiative (EVI) seeks to expand electric vehicle usage worldwide and has begun to take notice of electric scooters. The 2019 International Energy Agency report (IEA) noted that “shared electric foot scooters now operate in around 129 cities in the United States, 30 in Europe, 7 in Asia and 6 in Australia and New Zealand.” The EVI currently has 13 countries as backers, including Canada, Japan, and many European countries.
Rumble Motors aims to capitalize on this wave of growth and position itself to capture the urban consumer who doesn’t need a full-sized vehicle but needs a more robust vehicle than a foot scooter.
As urban environments grow denser, and countries invest more heavily in public transport, Rumble is perfectly poised to fill the first/last kilometer gap that is left unfilled by large scale transportation products. Rumble views its eco-friendly bikes as the perfect fit to reduce urban congestion and complement existing public transportation systems.
Today's largely fossil-powered mopeds and motorcycles are contributing to Air Pollution and Rumble believes this will accelerate the demand for environmentally friendly transport. As larger vehicles become more and more eco-friendly, Rumble Motors envisions the focus naturally turning to small internal combustion engines with poor exhaust purification. These also pose a major problem and contribute to greatly increased air pollution, a problem which will only become more acute, Rumble has the solution.
The market outlook for global electric scooters market size was USD 17.43 billion in 2018 meanwhile the global electric mobility market size is expected to reach USD 480 billion in 2025. This report also highlights that the greater than 48V category of scooters is the most rapidly expanding segment. We believe the segment Rumble’s current and future product lines fall into the <48V category.
It is Rumble's opinion that planned investments in manufacturing will result in a sharp increase in volume during the latter part of 2021. This volume increase, combined with cost reductions through local production and increased local component supply, will hopefully allow the company to grow on a quarterly basis. This will be on pace to reach 2022 expansion goals, barring any permission and permitting delays. Rumble is currently debt-free and this campaign will enable the company to expand will maintaining this position.
As a privately held, full-scale electric bike manufacturer, we currently offer two product lines; the Rumble and the Scrambler. Both are fully electric and showcase Rumble Motors' commitment to quality, aesthetics, and FUN. The Cafe Racer is its flagship model and incorporates our innovative engine noise option. The Scrambler is Rumble's homage to the cafe racer style bike’s that started our passions so many years ago.
Rumble is currently a made-to-order business, poised to expand through a combination of licensed manufacturing and distribution contracts. Currently, Rumble is developing partnerships with vendors in France, Spain, Indonesia, Dubai, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, and several others. Its production facility in Sweden was the first step and, with the completion of a flagship facility in Sacramento, Rumble hopes to capture market share in a rapidly expanding sector.
Your investment from in this campaign will allow Rumble Motors to establish global partnerships and increase production capacity to levels that support marketing beyond its current word of mouth demand.
An aggressive expansion strategy will utilize Rumble's network of social media influencers, Google ads and marketing tools to grow its customer base far more aggressively. After all...who said you can’t have some fun while making the world a bit greener?
