They haven't been available long enough for a sizeable used market yet.  However, I've already seen 2 2014's up for sale over on the Soviet Steeds web forum.  I've got a 2010 model and she's been quite reliable for me. 


I took a gander at the 2014's a couple of weeks ago when the Ural Demo Tour stopped in Ft. Collins, CO.  The bikes are getting better every year.  My 2010 is greatly improved over the 2003 model I used to own.  The 2014's are again probably a magnitude better than my 2010. 


Unfortunately, with quality and reliability comes price.  I doubt I'll ever be able to afford to buy a $17,000 bike.  Guess I'll just have to settle for my oldies and my Royal Enfield.


Cheers,

Was on ebay, saw a 2001 2wd asking $7000 . And a dealer selling new Gear Ups with every bolt on add on for $25k ( I'm not kidding).
Urals do look like a lot of fun.

I know they have improved them a lot over the years but back in the '80's a friend bought a Ural sidecar rig.

After 6 months of owning it he changed its name to Urinal.   ::)

I just never caught the sidecar bug.
The Urals look okay for that purpose, but I could never spend $17k on one. I'd be more inclined to go for a sporty vintage bike. That's the kind of bikes I like.
Home of the ACE Fireball 535 Bullet,  Ace GP Hi-Lift Roller Rocker Head Conversion. Pistons, cams, etc. Highest performance Bullet engine mods available anywhere.  AVL mods available. UCE kit coming.

I just got to my new home for the next few years, back in Africa.  Man, one of those rigs would be soooo much fun offroading the rough dirt tracks through the national park I visited today.  Camping gear and daughter strapped on/in the chair, me enjoying piloting the bizarre rig to an awesome vantage point.

Thanks...South Africa's more than a bit far from where I am in the northwest, though.

Can probably get a US model imported via my job if I want, but I already have too much stuff.  The Ural's just a pipe dream, I think.

I met a guy this weekend who was riding a 2012 Ural. The special "Ice Breaker" model. He's on his third engine!
