Ural lowers ride, raises price

2015 Ural cT tourer

Ural has lowered the suspension of their T tourer outfit to release the cT version.

The Russian company says the suspension changes to the outfit are “quite subtle”, but the price change in Australia is almost $2000 more at $20,340 (+ORC).

The Ural cT gets lower clearance by changing from 19-inch wheels to 18-inch and using used retro sidecar suspension to bring the chair down a couple of extra centimetres.

This should lower the centre of gravity to increase stability and cornering ability.

To further improve stability, they have expanded the mounting brackets for a wider wheel track.

This also means the chair is less likely to lift on faster or off-camber turns. Although, for some outfit riders, that little show-stopper trick is half the fun of riding these machines!

The 4×18 wheels have also lowered the gearing for better acceleration. Ural admits their bikes have been “slightly over-geared in top when battling a headwind or long gradual climbs”.

Now riders shouldn’t have to swap cogs as much.

  1. Its a lot of money. i have an st1100 with chair that cost me under 5 grand to put
    on the road, including the price of the bike ,its faster, quicker and probably
    triple the horsepower. You could put a chair on something like a hyosung {new}
    cheaper than one of these over 20, grand is a lot for ‘Quirkiness”
    There are quite a few cheap chairs out there if you look. The indian scout
    or street 500 would even be a proposition at the price, An enfield would be way cheaper
    and the indie chairs are cheap and would be an easy fit
