It seems to be more of a road model. I spend six months in flat Florida and six months in the mountains of Western North Carolina where I do ride some gravel roads but nothing that can't be handled by a two wheel drive car.
The other choice is the plain jane 2012 Ural T.
I would say it's a matter of preference. I think the Retro looks much better than the flat black T, but that's just me. You can also check out:
Good luck either way - I'm hoping to have my Gear Up within the next few weeks
