We always hear from marketing and PR departments and even journalists about motorcycle industry execs being riders, that they care, and are enthusiasts themselves. That’s normally true in this industry. Ducati CEO, Claudio Domenicali is a fantastic rider, and the head of Two-Wheel Global for Bosch shared plenty of stories about his off-road excursions in Australia. These guys ride. That’s the truth. Now let’s take a look at Ural.
When it comes to newly pressed Russian-made motorcycles imported to the United States, there’s Ural and then there’s Ural. Renown for its rugged line of sidecar models, specifically the 2WD Gear-Up and Patrol, Ural also manufactures the lesser-known Solo sT. Sans sidecar, the Solo sT is the only two-wheel counterpart to the variety of three-wheelers in Ural’s 2014 model lineup.
