Sixth European Ural Meeting in Austria
After a one year break the European Ural Meeting will takes place again, for the sixth time. The date is fixed, the location not yet definitely. We are looking for a location in the Alps, but we are still negotiating about the details.

Ural model year 2014
Attention: The 2014 Ural revolution is spreading through Europe mercilessly:
Ural is getting rid of the drum brakes, the carburettors and a few other technical relics from the 1950’s. Watch out, Ural is beaming itself into the present time!

From April 2014 the Ural factory will deliver the sidecars with the following innovations.
Electronic fuel injection instead of carburettors

Sharper camshafts for a better torque

External oil filter

Hydraulic steering damper

Disc brakes on all 3 wheels


The 2014 model (EFI) will also sport some new colours.
From April on:

Ranger Frog!
The „Froggy“ Ranger
The Ranger is the best Ural concept ever, therefore it does not matter, that the Ranger is now presented in an ugly frog dress. But who knows, maybe the Ranger Frog will turn into a prince when kissed by a virgin.

Tourist und Sportsman Azur!
Blue, blue, lovely blue, a matt blue.

Ural T and Ural TWD
From 2014 even more simple in black matt


For all of those who now have run scared because they have forgotten to buy the good old Ural:
It is not too late but stocks are dwindling..........
Until March 2013 we will receive Urals from the factory with the present specification and colours at 2013 prices. From April 2014 the carburettor and drum brake era really ends. And this era will definitely have come to an end. From April 2014 on the following colour schemes will no longer be available:  Ranger in Nato camouflage dress, Ranger in matt greens, Tourist, Retro and Sportman in olive green and dark blue, Ural T and TWD in black glossy. That means everybody who still wants one of these versions should visit his/her Ural dealer very soon.
