Ural Limited Edition Yamal Sidecar Motorcycle. Paddle Included.

The heavy duty Ural sidecar motorcycles were originally designed for the many places in Russia where poor roads, or an altogether lack of roads, made horses and motorcycles necessary to transport gear. For this limited edition model, Ural took its inspiration from the Yamal, a Russian vessel icebreaker used in the frozen Arctic Ocean, just north of Siberia. A motorcycle to conqueer what a typical motorcycle can’t…

So, for sidecar body, Ural designers decided on a double hull boat-like shape , weather proofed its bottom and fenders, and powdercoated it in flat orange to be spotted from far away.  And because you never know, the Yamal includes an oar which can double as a defensive tool or your last hope of survival on thin ice… It is outfitted with the teeth of its namesake and 2 two fog lights mounted on the sidecar bumper. Engine is carburated air-cooled, 4 stroke, opposed twin cylinder with a compression ratio of 8.6:1. If you want one, rush to order. Starting this month only 50 are being sold in the US.  MSRP $14,250. Ural.

    This Ural is a bit insane ….. in the very best of ways . An oar with your sidecar . Gotta love that one if for no other reason than the whimsy behind the idea . Then again …. having been on the back roads of Russia’s interior … what with flash flooding rivers …. bogs ten miles wide etc ….. maybe those oars make more sense than one would initially assume .

    I’m sure this Ural is light seconds ahead of mine in every way, but damn I love the drum brakes on mine.
    Still looking for a mount for the MG if anyone knows a guy. The MG was actually easier to find.

    This is an awesome bike. The oar is a nice touch. I want one of these.

    Riding a Ural for the first time one has to fight the urge to just get off and walk! However once you figure the thing out you will giggle like a school girl while riding it. peace

    Love these bikes… in England we call them ‘Urinals’
    Lots of people rally them – and the reverse gear when on 2 wheels makes people do a double take
    One of my Grandmothers neighbours in Germany had the real thing though – the ’41 BMW these are based on – great fun for riding in the snow …

    OOPs Better not let my wife see this. She has been after me to put a sidecar on my 2004 FLHT so we can take the grandkids on rides with us. This came up when the women had to go in a four wheeler while the kids rode.
    Actually I like the idea and have said it would be nice to take the German Shepherds, Okay the kids and dogs can all take turns LOL
    Sort of looking around for a sidecar I can afford. When it is time for it to happen it will. Anyone with leads on one please let me know.
    I will still have my 2009 FLHTC as my two wheeler to travel around the country on and the funny part is that it has a Baker Reverse in it which I love while the 2004 does not. No I would not remove it just get one for the “04”.

    The machine gun mount and the sidecar are both available from Ural.

    Awesome bike, I would like to have one.

    The pintle is available, but the mount for the particular gun I have (DP) might have to be fabricated. The bipod rests on a co-axial mount. Most mounts clamp to the gas tube under the barrel.

    Great bike for dirt roads and photography equipment in the south west. Large format camera and film.
