2017 Ural Pustinja II Review


2017 Ural Pustinja II on


Limited Edition.


Since we introduced Ural limited edition models the Ranger in sand colour called Pustinja in 2007 was for sure the most welcome and successful version.


And as this happened unbelievable 10 years ago we think that an anniversary edition of Pustinja is justified.





2017 Ural Pustinja II Key Features


Pustinja“ is the Russian word for “desert”.


Our desert Ural is based on Ural model Sportsman, that means: Equipped with Two wheel Drive on demand.


Our Pustinja is painted in sand colour and black only.


Black engine, black powertrain, black slim silencers


4 wheels with wheel hubs and rims in sand colour and spokes in black chrome. Aggressive knobby tires from Heidenau


A head light protector is obligatory for a desert vehicle


Nice ergonomic seat with sand deco for the passenger in the sidecar and also the driver may take place on such stylish seat


Two steel boxes (we name them Baraholka) left and right on the front of the sidecar



On the back of the sidecar we have a First Aid Kit with some strange content


Jerry can and luggage rack on top of the spare wheel of course cannot be missing


Attention: Only 30 units are available.


So hurry up and contact your Ural dealer to get one!


Next Pustinjas will be launched in 10 or 15 years only.



See you soon in the sand deserts, stone deserts, asphalt deserts, ice deserts, snow deserts, city deserts, salt deserts, cold deserts, foggy deserts, windy desert, Mars deserts, water deserts (why not?), coast deserts, dry deserts of this world!
