2019 Ural Gear Up

Recommended Posts

Saw this thing today in the Lowe’s parking lot. Looks like a hoot. 2WD model with a reverse gear (“engage it like a mad Russian”). The guy just bought it for under 17 grand with a military discount.  I understand it finally has EFI.

Funny you mention Jay, as I am watching him on Jay Leno's Garage.  :5188:

I owned an '06 for a while.  It was happiest at 45 mph, and required weekly bolt tightness checks (I nicknamed it 'Blue Loctite').  I will say, though, it is the one motorcycle that attracts women.  As we all know, most motorcycles actually attract other guys, but the Ural had a 'cute' factor that had ladies jumping out of cars to take pictures, waving, and asking if I had time to give them a ride.  Unlike the road rage that my other motorcycles seem to bring out, the Ural always got smiles and thumbs up from other drivers and pedestrians.

Thanks Mike

 

Not a bad looking rig.

 

Personally I don't know about the modernization as putting EFI & disk brakes on a Ural is like putting radial tires on a shopping cart.

And if the bike & one's charm alone doesn't work, they do sell this no fail option. ;) :grin:

I would tend to agree as the older Urals I've seen are....basic.  Maybe its because it was shiny new and clean, but they may have stepped up their game.  And the 2WD axle is interesting looking engineering.

A review I just read of a prototype electric model they built (with a Zero drivetrain) mentioned that it "regards steering inputs as a nuisance."

Apparently gas-powered Urals can extract oxygen from water!

Seems a little fishy to me. :D Really though, with no tall snorkels attached I don't know how they kept running. :dontknow:
