Download press release, September 26th, 2008

Brudeli Tech proudly presents our new Leanster, the Brudeli 654L, a unique new vehicle
providing an extraordinary riding experience. The exclusive production model Brudeli
654L is available in very limited numbers and was presented at Intermot 2008.

“Making 100 metre controlled powerslides at the local dirt track oval (speedway) is a
quite unbeatable feeling. Especially when this is a street-legal vehicle that you actually
came cruising with to the track.” says Geir Brudeli, the inventor of the Leanster and
manager of Brudeli Tech. “Then just a few minutes later you could be at a go-kart track
without any change of setup, leaning 45 degrees into corners with a control superior to
that of a normal motorcycle. The Leanster suspension is 100% mechanical and leaves
the rider in control. It is built with the goal of boosting the motorcycle experience.”
Brudeli Tech believes their customers are going to use the 654L mainly for riding on
normal roads, and this is what it is designed for.

The vehicle is best described as something in between a motorcycle and ATV-quad. It
leans into corners like a motorcycle but, at the same time, has a lot of the stability of a
sport quad. The idea was born on the Norwegian gravel and winter roads, but the
Leanster has also proven to work extremely well on tarmac roads and go-kart tracks
also. A lot of motorcyclists watch the dirt track races dreaming of being able to control a
bike in the same way. The Brudeli 654L is a way of getting closer to that dream. The
footboards stay parallel to the ground, while the rest of the vehicle, including the two
front wheels, leans at an angle of up to 45 degrees. The two wheels in front also provide
a shorter brake length. This is both about fun and safety.

The design of the new model was executed by Atle Stubberud of the company ‘Soon
Design’ (www.soondesign.com). Atle Stubberud (phone +47 98 68 69 39) was also the
key designer for the concept model from 2005. “This really is a dream project for a
transportation designer. Nearly like a student project where you could start with a
completely open mind. I have been involved since the idea was first formulated in 2001.”
says Atle Stubberud

Brudeli 654L is based on a KTM 690 Supermoto. The leanster is street legal in
Europe (EC Type Approved).
