As much as I like the Ural if just for their quirkiness, I am going to have to give one a fail. Basically its a bog standard Ural tarted up with black paint trying to cash in the Star Wars craze....or in others words.....just another marketing ploy........when I take over the world Pinkie, the first thing I am going to do is put all the marketers up against the wall......and then :shooting:
Always ask why.

Annoying. I can't give it a fail though, just uncool. A Ural with a special paint job and an LED headlight would be pretty cool on its own. But why'd they ruin it with all the marketing bull? How much extra will be tacked onto the price because the Star Wars (TM) licensing fee has to be paid? Plus the extra for the privilege of a Limited Edition (another TM?). I'm a Star Wars fan, but sorry, this is really pandering to suckers.

Hey, they are only making 25 of them. Relax. I think it's funny. Maybe not awesome, but a lightsaber? That's at least a cool! C'mon, repeat after me, "May the force be with you.."

How could I not vote this: Awesome?

Wowzers, this is so cool for a company to take such a piece of iconic culture and incorporate it into a limited edition model! I know Star Wars isn't everyone's cup of tea, but it's one of the few cult movies you could take inspiration from and use that to customize a motorcycle.

It would be interesting to hear the thoughts of others here on what other movies you think would work as well for a custom bike.

Yes, I think it's just a black URAL with a Star Wars theme, maybe it would be even cooler to give it more than just a "black paint" job and incorporate some stars, planets, or even custom artwork, but I'm 101% sure those that buy the URAL Dark Force WILL do this anyways...

...and yes, URAL is caching in on the Star Wars craze, but why not, it's cool. :)
