Are they still actually Russian built, or is this (un)subtle marketing. I had, in the back of my mind, that they had sold the rights, the lines, everything on to the Chinese years back, having stolen the whole set-up from BMW in 1945. Perhaps I am out of date - can you enlighten us eemsreno?
I always liked the look of the Wehrmacht original 2-wheel drive outfit - side valve 750cc I think. Having spoken with a few Ural owners over the years, it seems like quality control was always rather lacking, so they had to be pretty handy with the spanners when touring - seemed to enjoy the challenge though.
