Ridley Motorcycle Company will soon introduce its new line of fully automatic transmission motorcycles for 2009. The Ridley Auto-Glide Limited Edition is for introducing. After the 2008 Limited Edition design sold out so quickly. The 2009 Ridley Auto-Glide Limited Edition has a personality as the vital spirit. The custom styling and unique features set the ’09 Limited apart from the rest. It is the first ever Ridley to feature an electronic fuel gauge.

2009 Ridley Auto-Glide Limited Edition

2009 Ridley Auto-Glide Limited Edition beside electronic fuel gauge has also chromes as impressive features.The look is absolutely timeless because of chrome on driving lights, beachbar handlebars, a chrome roadbar with highway pegs, front and center mounted chrome horn, chrome and rubber floorboards, LED turn signals, 60 spoke rims, and white wall tires.

The tank mounted dash is a self calibrating speedometer and tachometer with odometer and resettable trip meter. Below the instrument cluster is an LED fuel gauge and battery volt meter. Both right and left fuel caps are still accessible for filling the individual, but joined 4.2 gallon stretched tanks.

2009 Ridley Auto-Glide Limited Edition brings back to 2001 when Ridley designed the first 33 HP three-quarter scale model known as the Signature Series One. Demand for that model caused it to sell out before the company began producing the model. Other Limited Edition models included the 2002 Signature Series II, 2003 Vicious Cycle (42 HP, three quarter scale), 2005 L.E. (first belt drive Auto-Glide model), and last year’s 2008 Auto-Glide Limited (first tank mounted electronic dash and black engine).The new Limited model is similarly styled with the signature “R” accent on the tank and newly added fender accents in Black Cherry which add a subtle and very classic look. To help accent the paint, Ridley has included a bomber brown leather seat and brown “slim fit” hand grips.
