Ural motorcycles

Russia brings sidecar motorcycles back to the world’s attention with the introduction of the all-new entry-level motorcycle called the Ural T. Ok, so they’re not that inspired when choosing a name, but we can’t help noticing how this model looks like an incursion in the glory period of such motorcycles.

Claiming all-around capabilities, the Ural T is powered by this manufacturer’s consecrated air-cooled Boxer-twin engine developing 40 horsepower and being coupled to a four-speed transmission (reverse not counted).

The best of it is that it meets modern requirements while looking like a restored, rare exemplar rather than a brand new one (the black paint scheme with maroon pinstriping does help). Also, the $9,999 price tag almost doesn’t do it justice.

Read the official press release after the break.

Owners of URAL, DNEPR and BMW motorcycles produced during WWII are offered the possibility to complete the authentic look of one lucky motorcycle by acquiring a cargo trailer which would have been a must during WWII. The trailer weighs only 156 lbs when empty, but due to the permissive dimensions (52 in. long, 28 in. wide and 12 in. deep), carrying capacity is an impressive 800 lbs. No wonder the war was that destructive as bikes were clearly used for more than “recognition purposes”. Wheels measure 19 in. in diameter and ground clearance…well, that’s more than obvious.

The seller mentions that the trailer features tonneau cover, mounting for the bike, and parking brake and it is in very good condition, especially now that it was repainted. They can even add lights to it and make it street legal if the buyer asks so. Now that’s great news if planning to take this at motorcycle parades.

Asking price is $1,599, but I’m sure that the lights will add on to that.

Sometimes it doesn’t all resume to high-speed corners, full-face helmets and radar detectors. Riders are also attracted by high windshields, torquey engines and sidecars. Ural motorcycles could look like being made and ridden in the time of the second world war, but they are as new as they can be. With four speeds and another one for going backwards, it doesn’t train your muscle legs like a normal bike would do. And the best part is that you can take your whole family with you if you have only one kid. Good luck with that!

This kind of description you get if you search on Google for IMZ Ural. After watching the commercial video, I asked myself: where is that „unique classic sidecar motorcycle for family recreational and off-road riding” in this video? Or maybe in Russia, riding with your father while handing the machine gun in front of you is considered like family fun?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this video too .... what should I call it? Oh yeah. Not appropriate for a commercial video?
