The 2012 Ural Limited Edition is here: The Ural Yamal

IMZ-Ural, the Siberian manufacturer of motorcycles with sidecars introduces icebreaker-inspired limited edition Ural Yamal – the only motorcycle equipped with an oar.

Yamal, which translates as “the end of the Earth,” is a peninsula in Russia, known for being nothing short of inhospitable, barren, and perpetually frozen. It is also the well-known icebreaker that spends its time conquering the frozen Arctic Ocean, just north of Siberia – and a perfect namesake of this year’s limited edition from Ural.

Russian icebreakers are heavy, rugged, and focused entirely on their mission. Though their purpose may not always make sense, these vessels are unique in every way, and when speaking to the right people—absolutely necessary. Ural motorcycles are much like this strange genre of sea-going vessel: durable, dependable, and able to conquer what typical motorcycles cannot.

The limited edition Yamal is spec'd with its own double hull—of sorts—much like the boat: 3M coating is used to weather proof the lower portion of the sidecar body and the fenders for additional protection. The Ural Yamal is painted flat orange—to be easily spotted anywhere. Its sidecar is fitted with dual fog lights to defeat the long nights as you travel from waypoint to waypoint. Both rider and passenger comfort is enhanced with the addition of accessory fairing and windscreen. On demand two-wheel drive, knobby spare tire, and hand guards round out the mission capability of the Yamal.

An impasse may come in other shapes and sizes beyond weather and topography, so Ural throws in an oar with tongue-in-cheek emergency instruction to double as a defensive tool or your last hope of survival on thin ice... you never know. Add the unforgettable menacing teeth and you get yet another one-of-a-kind limited edition from Ural – a motorcycle that sure beats the norm.

The 2012 Ural Yamal Limited Edition —the only motorcycle equipped with an oar. Total built for U.S.: 50 ; MSRP: $14,250

I agree, but it isn't just Europeans that are eager to believe the worst about the US. Many Americans (Especially Ex-Pats) are soerly misinformed. I worked in Northern CA for a while and every time something bad happened in the world I had co-workers explaining to me how bad the US was. No patriotism, OK. But no critical thought either. -jcp-
