Ural motorcycles have evolved slowly and steadily since their birth in 1941. Major changes do not happen often, but about every 10 years there are noticeable technical improvements including 12 volt electrics, better lighting, improved braking, more power, and reverse gear. During all of this development the shape and style of the sidecar body has not changed. The introduction of the all new “Ural Cross” sidecar body, developed by the European distributor is truly revolutionary. The “Ural Cross” sidecar has been developed as a result of customer demand in Europe for more focused adventure motorcycle. A sidecar capable of carrying more varied loads over rough terrain, snow covered mountains and even competing in amateur off road competition.
