Introducing the new 2014 Ural Motorcycles.
Rethink What You Thought You Knew About Ural – Ural Introduces the Largest Package of Upgrades in Ten Years
2014 marks the year of revolutionary changes for Ural motorcycles. With the introduction of a number of advanced technical and functional features, we’ve made Urals better, safer and more user-friendly, while still maintaining Ural’s classic looks, ruggedness and unpretentious character.
To begin with, we’ve fitted our 749cc boxer-twin with a new stand alone fuel-injection system equipped with an ECU for each cylinder improving acceleration and fuel economy. We increased breaking power by putting disc breaks on all three wheels. By replacing the friction-type steering damper with the new hydraulic steering damper, we made it easier for the rider to maintain a straight line of travel and improved the bike’s stability and rider confidence. Some appearance improvements include new kneepads and badges on the gas tank, improved preformed hoses for fuel lines, breather and reservoirs. The new dashboard with modern indicator lamps is more aesthetically pleasing and at the same time better follows the contour of the headlight and the upper triple clamp.
“For many years we watched other manufacturers launch new models after new models every year. So two and a half years ago we decided we needed to do something more significant than changing the color combinations. It’s not to say that we didn’t change the color combinations for 2014, as a matter of fact we did. But we also made the bike lighter, faster, more responsive, more fuel efficient, better at handling and braking,” – says Ilya Khait, Ural President and CEO. “The new Urals maintain their signature classic charm, ruggedness and unpretentious character. At the same time, performance-wise, these bikes got closer to what riders expect from a modern day motorcycle.”
“We know there is a large number of people who like the idea of a classic motorcycle with a sidecar but the well-known quirks of previous generations’ Urals have stopped some of them from exploring it further. With the introduction of this new generation of Urals we’re hoping to get another chance, and invite more people to discover the unique experience of owning a Ural. ”
