The Retro continues Ural’s tradition and combines the sidecar configuration with many modern technologies such as Brembo brakes and electric start. The bike keeps the same robust DNA like its predecessors which become famous in the World War II. Though, the motorcycle received numerous styling upgrades which make it suited for today’s standards.
For the starters, to complement the 2012 Retro’s design and finish, Ural added a black cordura tonneau cover and a tasty windscreen. The new motorcycle is propelled by an OHV Air-cooled, 4 stroke, opposed twin cylinder engine with a displacement of 749cc. The engine delivers a maximum output of 40 HP @ 5600 rpm and 38 ft-lbs of torque @ 4600 rpm.
The ride quality is assured by the traditional Marzocchi telescopic forks which are combined with a new frame and lower ground clearance.
The 2012 Ural retro has a starting price of $13,999.
2012 Ural Retro Features and Benefits
Tonneau & Windscreen
To complement the 2012 Retro’s design and finish, we’ve added a black cordura tonneau cover and windscreen for that perfect retro look!
Marzocchi & Brembo
Since the Retro is intended for road use only, we chose traditional Marzocchi telescopic forks for the 2012 Retro. With a different frame and lower clearance, the design is as true to what we think a retro bike should look like.
Reliable, stout, and proven, the boxer layout could be the last engine you ever ride.
The 2012 Ural Retro is available in Black with white pinstripes. $13,999
