About Ural Motorcycles
The Ural motorcycle is steeped in WWII history. Things were rough on the Russian front, and the Soviet Army needed a flexible, highly mobile vehicle for transportation. The Soviets took inspiration from a BMW sidecar motorcycle, and the Ural motorcycle was born. The Russians continued to build Ural motorcycles after the war ended, and they remained popular in many Eastern Bloc countries. The vehicle managed to stand the test of time; IMZ-Ural still produces motorcycles today. The company's modern bikes are popular in Russia because their heavy-duty design does well on rough, remote roads, but Ural motorcycles have fans all over the world, especially in European countries, such as Germany and France. These bikes are less common on this side of the Atlantic, but sellers on eBay offer a broad range of vintage and modern bikes to choose from. You can also find a number of parts and accessories, such as Ural motorcycle sidecars, horns, and speedometers.
