What about this hybrid new/old ural?

About to pull the trigger on either this one or a cT.

http://www.ural.cc/index.php?en_hybrid1314

To all you hack veterans, is there love for the new Ural, but with a carb motor?

Enlightening. May I please trouble you to elaborate? There are two EFI bikes in Portugal that I know of, so no chance to figure out the differences by myself before opening my wallet.

If it was me I would buy the latest 2015. EFI is getting well sorted (and new maps are downloadable). Plus you can now put the spare in any position even with the disc brakes.

I have a carb model 2011 which works fine, but I'm still doing some sorting here and there on the carb (probably just my fault for thinking I can tweak just a bit more mileage out of it). Because mine is running fine, I won't jump to the new bike. If I was buying now, no brainer, go 2015 EFI

If you haven't been to sovietsteeds.com, check 'em out. Lots of 2015 info.

The fuel injected engine puts out more power than the carbureted version, but acceleration is still very slow. The cT has 18 inch wheels, instead of 19", which helps it accelerate faster and hold its speed better going up hills. It also corners MUCH better. Get the cT

The subject matter has already been done. Recently, no less.

Although not a 'factory offering', it would be the one I'd be inclined to buy.

Way easier to retro fit the smaller diameter wheels than trying to sort through what needs to be altered in the wiring loom to accommodate the change to carb's. Not to mention all the small parts required to get the carb' to air filter connection.

Bom dia Tiago- I live in the middle of nowhere. Just had horrible injection problems with my XR1200.

Right now I love carbs!

Wait, didn't I hear that while all three 2014 wheels have disc brakes, they are different diameter discs? And as a result, the spare is now only good for one wheel instead of two?

I love my 014 fueli Ura. I also love my carbed Urals. I've always been a carb guy and Ural carbs (keihin) are mind numbing simple carbs to work on and work very well. I do love the EFI though but if it pukes...I'm clueless. I wouldn't be afraid of either on a new Ural. On the other hand I would NOT pay a premium price to buy last years outdated technology. If you can get last years carbed version significantly less than the fueli and you're ok with carbs I say go for it but you'll be happy with either. It's not what we think or want, it's what "you" want.

No, for 2015 the spare fits all three wheels, you just have to remove the disc from the wheel you're removing and install it on the spare.
