Bored of riding the same ol’ characterless machinery everyday? Want something really special? In this series, we’re going to be looking at exactly that. Motorcycles that will satisfy your need for some properly unique set of wheels, covering everything from modestly priced mo’cycles to beauties that will need everything you got in the bank and then some more.
The Ural – T
How about some Russian metal to kick things off? The design for the original Ural motorcycle was conveniently borrowed from the German BMW military motorcycles and the motorcycle you see here, the Ural-T, is a subtly revised descendant of the Ural from back then. What you get for your $9999 (base price) is a beautiful retro-styled machine, best coupled with a sidecar and retro leather accessories. A 750cc air-cooled flat twin, 4 forward + 1 reverse gearbox with shaft drive, mechanical drum brakes and SACHS suspension complete the package. Set off touring across Russia or make you way to Mongolia or just about any exotic and deeply interesting part of the earth that takes your fancy. Just like what Hubert Kriegel does – tour the world on his Ural; quite apt for a man who’s motto in life is ‘Don’t forget to take a risk today’. A wake-up call for the explorer in you. Is this what you’ve been looking for?
