Designed for reliable service over rough terrain (from urban to back-country), Russian-made Ural motorcycles are as rugged as their namesake mountain range. Featuring a 749cc air-cooled opposed-twin engine and shaft drive, the Ural is an unabashed throwback – and there are plenty of customers who like it that way. One advantage of the utilitarian Ural motorcycle design is that it’s largely made of steel and aluminum, foregoing the acres of plastic found on most modern bikes. Another advantage of the Ural is its optional sidecar, which allows legally carrying a third passenger – something ordinary motorcycles can’t do. As well, an available on-demand sidecar drive system gives you two driven wheels instead of just one. Motorcycling is as much about soul and personality as anything else, and unquestionably the Ural has plenty of it.
