Hacked it after four years solo with a Ural chair for under 3000. That's roughly the same cost new as a standard Ural and it's going to hold it's value a lot better. Performance wise either bike has advantages in certain places.

I can understand Ural as a small maker has higher costs and they also have almost zero chance to make a loss leader to get you on the brand, but I don't think the current prices are the way fowards. I've said it before, they need a 1000cc motor and someone to turn out a couple of parts bin specials. Range should IMHO be 750 basic outfit and solo road tourer, 1000 version of these because you can, 1000 fake classic/cruiser, 1000 BMW GS airhead copy both with and without chair. I'd sell the 750 basic solo for under 4000 and the basic outfit for under 6000 to get bikes on the road. When you've done that you can sell the top range super off roader for 10k.

I'm guessng Ural already thought of this but struggle to raise the cash. Hope they make it, the Arctic sure looks the business.

Other than price I think you'll find some of you're wishes were realised some year's past, but never made production - http://www.autosoviet.altervista.org...Moto(Ural).htm Shame.

And the dnepr, You'll see the GS and a Wankel. Just scroll down the left side till you come to bike's - http://www.autosoviet.altervista.org/main-english.htm
Safe riding Karl.

Wjuga Unavailable in USA

There were 50 Arctic GearUps sold in the USA in 2008. The Wjuga will not be available in Europe until 2009. I've had mine since April but I've made a few changes.

I knew a bloke with a Wankel Norton. I won't make jokes about the name, but lets say it used oil faster than a 2-stroke.

Now the M-1000, that's the ticket. Time to blow the dust off the drawings IMHO
