Ural T sidecar

ural_t_sidecar
The latest rig from cult sidecar specialists Ural hits the showrooms this month. The T costs just $9,999 and is powered by Ural’s venerable 750cc flat twin, pumping out 40 solid Siberian horses. The T doesn’t have the on-demand sidecar drive of the Patrol and Gear Up models, but it does have that very handy reverse gear—and you save $3,000 or more. It’s a timeless and immensely practical vehicle aimed at urban and backroads use: initial reports are that it’s fun to drive, and apparently capable of “lift throttle oversteer“.

    Looks great in the black with red pinstripe. Perhaps my favourite Ural yet.

    Does Ural ever offer any of these bikes without the sidecars?

      Scott, the Ural is available sans sidecar in Europe, as the Solo. I like the looks of it: quite close to the original BMW (R71?) that the Ural is based upon.

    $9,999?! A few years ago i could swap one for a couple of bottles of vodka.

    Thanks Chris. It’d be wonderful to see a solo of the Ural T stateside.

    @Greg: They’re simple enough that unless you’re a neanderthal, you can repair them yourself, so you don’t need a dealer nearby.
