Ural is a Russian company that was founded back in the early days of the second World War. The bike part is based on BMWs R71. And the side car was made so that it could be ridden pretty much anywhere. Now a staggering 3.2 million bikes later the company still makes almost indestructible side car outfits. These are powered by a simple flat twin 750cc motor of in the bike. Best of all, they are still made entirely in Russia. The waning popularity of the sidecar is about to change.
Ural - The Right Side Of The Road
The first thing is that the company have recently launched a manually selectable two wheel drive on a left-hand sidecar. They have done this because they recently achieved Euro5 certification. This, in turn, has helped create the conditions to allow them to focus on long-established left-hand traffic markets such as our own. The machine comes with accessories such as a spare wheel, a sidecar front bumper, a pair of LED sidecar fog lights as well as a decent sized luggage rack. There is a Tonneau cover for the ‘car and there is even a jerry can as well as a folding utility shovel included in the package. The sidecar is even equipped with a power outlet for charging your phone.
Ural - A Whole New Adventure
The two wheel drive system is selected manually and engages instantaneously. If you should encounter a loose or slippery surface simply shift the lever to the 2WD setting and motor blissfully on. The really great news is that they are now available to buy and ride here in Ireland. The team at AMI have been stocking them from early in this year. If you’d like to find out more including prices and delivery times give, David or Gary a call at the shop on 053 942 2415.
