2022 Ural Gear Up Guide Features and Benefits

As we were working on the new system, we made a decision to standardize production so that we manufacture bikes in the same configuration for all our world markets including North America. Certification process is nearing the completion for US, and we are excited to report that the emission numbers far exceed the current US standards.

Other changes and improvements on 2022 models came as the result of the feedback from our customers, such as new and improved rear brakes and especially the central stand design…that one only took us a couple of decades. 🙂 We’ve also made standard certain adventure-ready features that were previously optional – the two-into-one high pipe exhaust and Heidenau K37 tires.

Find the pricing and more details on our website. Watch the short overview video from David and stay tuned for its extended version.

You might notice a distinctive logo badge on the steering head nut of the 2022 model that is featured in the videos and photos. This October is Ural Factory’s 80th anniversary! We are marking each 2022 model with commemorative 80th anniversary badge.

The first shipments of 2022’s are hitting US shores in September. Supply continues to be limited, please contact dealers to get the availability. If you can’t find the Ural of your dreams at a dealer’s inventory, please place your orders with your favorite dealer. A little insight: orders placed by the 15th of each month usually will fall into the following months production. You can expect 60-90 days delivery time. Disclaimer – these estimates are not guaranteed, it is just a relatively good guideline.
