Can someone with Ural buying experience help me out here? I called y dealer today about getting a new 2014 ural T.

He stated they are selling them at MSRP, but they have to add $999 onto any ural, cause that is what ural charges the dealers to get them from the motherland.

Can anyone confirm this, or is this another money maker for the dealer?

That does include setup (the $999).

Is it unreasonable to expect to pay straight MSRP?

Freight and setup are pretty standard for new motorcycles...not sure why folks think they shouldn't have to pay them for a Ural.

Want to pay less?

There are plenty of nice used Ural's out there.

I understand it is normal, its just not normally a thousand dollars, so I was asking if this is standard for Ural across the board, or if each dealer determines their own.

What if you find a dealer that's 1500 miles away that will wave the fees?

Is it worth having it $hipped to you?

How much would you spend to ride it home?

Have you owned a hack rig in the past?

You gonna finance? How much is a grand over 3-4 years?

1500 miles is a bit much, bit I would travel a few hundred miles to save a grand

Ive done cross county fly and rides for hacks before, so no worries there.

Yes i have owned 3 (never a ural though)

Yes I will finance. A grand over 3-4 years with financing is obviously more than a grand, cause you pay interest on that grand the life of the loan.

Gene is more than fair

Buying a Ural has shown me silly extra cost add ons all over the board.

At least contact GENE at ( holopawural.com ).

We bought here & have no regrets.

NO BS side charges either.

I agree, good time. Perfect riding weather yesterday (Feb in So-Cal)
And it was nice to meet you, fellow ADV'er there V.I.

A couple views from the chair.




And, (for me anyway) much of the fun is seeing how current Uralistas farkle-up their outfits.
As with any bike...when they're new I consider it them a blank canvas.

Neat rig. The stickers on the car are for pedestrian kills?

A good turn out of rigs.



This one was very cool. Belong to anyone here?

Attended the Demo Ride Yesterday

I went to the Ural Demo in Roseville yesterday. It was a 350 mile round trip and a bit of waiting but well worth the effort. The dealership did a great job of getting things setup and mingling with the crowd answering questions. There were 5 bikes available, 2 2014 models and 3 new 2013's. The plan was to have 5 rigs riding at a time but for whatever reason that didn't happen. All of the bikes started and seemed to run perfectly. There was only one person doing all the training and demo rides so my 9am time slot ride didn't happen until about 11.

I have to comment about the instructor though. Once you did get with him he was excellent. He made sure you understood what was going to happen and that you were very comfortable the whole time. He made me feel like he had nothing better to do than see I had a great experience. He cheered me for getting the chair wheel a couple of inches off the ground in the parking lot exercises.

I applaud Ural and the participating dealers for offering this opportunity. Even though I have decided a Ural is not right for me at this time, it was a great experience anyway. Pics of the rigs they had to ride below. Based on pictures and seeing only individual rigs before I thought I would prefer a Gear Up. The Patrols look a lot better in person than in pictures. I was drawn to the Orange one even though it was part of the 2013 group. The carb bikes seemed to run great too.

There's an orange 2013 like that at Storm's in Grand Prairie, TX, too. It's a great looking rig! Their demo day is March 7, so I'm looking forward to trying one out. I have absolutely no experience driving a sidecar, so we'll see if it's for me.
