Ural released a new sidecar motorcycle aimed at those who love adventure. Ural motorcycles have evolved slowly and steadily since their birth in 1941. Major changes do not happen often, but about every 10 years there are noticeable technical improvements including 12 volt electrics, better lighting, improved braking, more power and reverse gear. Despite the numerous upgrades, Ural’ motorcycles continue to keep their classic appearance and this is one of the attributes that sets it apart from any other modern manufacturer.
Unlike the other products in Ural’s lineup, the Cross sidecar has been especially developed as a result of customer demand in Europe for a more focused adventure motorcycle. Thereby the new motorcycle is a practical sidecar capable of carrying more varied loads over rough terrain, snow covered mountains and even competing in amateur off road competition.

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 new 2012 Ural Patrol is based on the company’s military motorcycles which managed to attract a lot of fans thanks to their reliable and tough character.
Like its predecessors, the 2012 Ural Patrol has a strong built quality and is reliable to the core. It’s also similarly tough and is capable of dealing with harsh terrains without too much fuss. The new Patrol is the only motorcycle in the world manufactured with an on-demand sidecar drive. What’s even interesting, the Patrol gives you the ability to switch between single-wheel drive and dual-wheel drive with the flip of a lever.
The 2012 Ural Patrol Power is powered by robust Air-cooled, 4 stroke, opposed twin cylinder engine with a displacement of 749 cc. The engine is rated at 40 HP at 5600 rpm and 38 lb ft of torque at 4600 rpm.

The Ural Gear Up was especially developed for those who love adventure riding. Though, the bike was not only made for snow, mud or sand, as is also able to deal great with the highway. This three wheeled motorcycle is propelled by a robust 749 cc, OHV Air-cooled, 4 stroke, opposed twin cylinder which offers a maximum output of 40 hp at 5600 rpm and 38 ft.lbs of torque at 4600 rpm.
The Ural Gear - Up shares many common elements with the Patrol model and both of them are based on the company’s legendary military motorcycles.
However, despite its clearly military upbringing, the Gear-Up is equally fit for more peaceful missions, such as fishing or hunting trips. If outdoor adventures are not your forte, you can still amaze your friends with the motorcycle’s ability to blaze over outdoor obstacles or urban challenges.

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.

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. Full story
