Ural From Russia With Love Motorcycle
In 1940, Russia got the design documents for the WWII-era BMW R71 military motorcycle and sidecar. Nearly 80 years later, the Ural is immediately recognizable with its vintage styling and a reputation for offroad reliability that rivals Jeep and Land Rover. The From Russia With Love Edition takes the classic Ural design and adds a dose of '60s spy mystique with silver paint, chrome trim, and diamond-stitched black leather seating surfaces. The name of a female Russian spy is embroidered on the sidecar interior, one for each of the 35 units produced, right next to a prominent bright-red "EJECT" button — although the functionality of the button hasn't been confirmed or denied. A 749cc two-cylinder boxer engine powers the Ural, with selectable two-wheel-drive that drives the sidecar wheel for extra traction. Brembo brakes provide the stopping power and Sachs provides coilovers for the bike and the sidecar. The From Russia With Love Edition is available in US dealerships now.
