Oklahoma City-based Ridley Motorcycles Unveiled World’s First Fully Automatic Trike

(OKLAHOMA CITY - 04/07/08) The Ridley Motorcycle Company unveiled the world’s
first and only fully automatic transmission, three-wheeled Trike motorcycle this weekend
in Oklahoma City, Okla. The trike was on display at the “Thunder Run IV” event in
Oklahoma City, OK. Ridley’s Auto-Glide Trike is the latest addition to Ridley’s full line of
automatic transmission motorcycles.

“Adding an extra wheel to our already fun and easy to ride motorcycle is giving many
people the opportunity to feel the excitement of motorcycling for the first time,” said Vice
President of Ridley Motorcycle Company, Jay Ridley. “On a Ridley trike, you do not
have to worry about maintaining balance or using a clutch. Our trike offers a retro style,
more storage, an electric reverse and the same automatic transmission that has become
a staple of our brand.”

The rise in the popularity of trikes has been attributed to the growing baby-boomer
population. Trikes offer greater stability while riding and are easier to handle. Ridley
looks to capture this market as motorcycle rider age demographics as a whole continue
to rise.

As with each Ridley model, the motorcycles are designed and manufactured at the
Ridley Motorcycle Factory in Oklahoma City.

“Some manufacturers will start with a two-wheeled motorcycle and modify the body to
make room for additional trike parts,” said Ridley. “We start with a frame specifically
designed to be a trike. This allows for a higher quality product and a lower price point for

The Ridley Factory Team was on-hand at the “Thunder Run IV” event along with the
complete line of 2008 Ridley Auto-Glide Motorcycles including a redesigned Sport and a
completely new Auto-Glide Standard model. All Ridley Motorcycles feature an automatic
transmission. The 2008 Ridley Auto-Glide Trike is currently shipping to Ridley US
dealers with a base MSRP of $25,995.

Ridley Motorcycles are sold throughout the world. Their dealership network spans over
60 US markets, Canada, Puerto Rico, the Philippines and Japan. Ridley is looking to
expand into the majority of the EU member countries in the near future.
