An expansion into motorcycle production in 1909, with the 'M' prototypes and 'F'-head engines
The invention of the Rudge Multi gear engine in 1912, and a subsequent Isle of man win in 1914
The innovative 'Rudge Four' engines, with four parallel valves per cylinder
The 'Python' models - Rudge equipment used by other manufacturers, including in Enzo Ferrari's Scuderia Ferrari
The post-war slump and a move to EMI, with later attempts to revive the Rudge name
