2016 Ural Patrol Sidecar
Ever have the urge to forge a river, upstream? Need a bike that will cross the northern tundra and dig itself out of swampy bog pits? Tired of the awkward foot shuffle trying to back your bike out of parking spaces? Maybe the Ural Patrol is your next ride. This rainy SideCarSaturday brings us a practically brand new, 2016 Ural Patrol Sidecar with just 500 miles on the odo. The Ural brand is named for the rugged and unforgiving mountain range that separates the western half of the Russian content from the equally perilous Siberian plains. The bike itself is no sutulost’ when it comes to living up to that namesake.
Powered by a 749cc air-cooled, pushrod, flat-twin, reminiscent of the air-cooled BMW engines, the Ural is a survivalist’s soggy dream come true. A true offroading machine, the low-geared 4-speed bike features an active (selectable) shaft-driven sidecar wheel making it a two-wheel-drive motorcycle. Leading-link anti-dive front suspension handles the rough stuff coming and twin adjustable gas shocks in the rear handle the outgoing. The front wheel and sidecar both carry disc brakes by Brembo with four pistons up front and two on the side, with the rear making use of a large HB big-bore single caliper with an integral parking brake. A single gas shock supports the sidecar. Minimizing risk is everything when padding through the wilderness, so for added security, all three axles wear the same dimension spoked wheel and Duro HF-308 tires, offering the option to swap tires amongst wheels in the event of a flat.
If 4-speeds weren’t enough to entice you, the Ural is one of the few bikes to offer a mechanical reverse gear. This is especially handy with navigating the Honda hatchback-sized bike around campgrounds, out of muddy ditches, or backing into your favorite parking space at Aldi. If getting groceries (or provisions) is your thing then you’ll find the sidecar with its removable seat (for extra storage) and weather-sealed and locking trunk an absolute dream. Once the provisions are dropped off at basecamp you can load up your best friend, significant other, or maybe even your dog for a woodline romp at dusk. You’ll see the forest for the trees quite clearly thanks to an updated H4 headlight housing.
This particular Patrol has come to us with just 504 miles on the clock and still showing rubber nipple on the tire treads. For further information, to schedule a test ride, or to purchase, please fill out the form below. Come take her for a spin and see for yourself.
