Sweet! This just made my short list as a garage-mate for the Tuono.

Awesome, a tourer thats under 500lbs. I'd be interested. I'm looking at commuting for 300 miles 5 days a week... I think I'd like to do some of it on a bike.

It's not a "tourer" unless it gets a tank that can hold a decent amount of gas.

Cool, I test rode a Uly when they first came out and thought it was nice but too tall and the 45 ft turning radius didn't help.

This one looks like they addressed at least part of that, plus the three bag system makes it a serious do everything bike like the DL Suzuki's, GS BMW's and Triumph Tiger. It looks to be worth looking into for a next bike though I have my heart set on a Ural Patrol sidecar rig......

This looks like an excellent commuter and day or weekend tripper.

I can't get over the mileage of the Ural, 25-30 mpg. Otherwise looks like a very cool way to commute in the winter.

.... you can run just about any kind of gas in it. A plus if you live where the gas is 80 octane and strained through cheese cloth. See how yer fuel injection does then!
