Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
We wish you and your close ones a very Merry Christmas and safe and Happy Holidays!
We are grateful for all of the stories of adventures you’ve shared with us throughout this past year. The joy of riding and your smiles from around the world is our greatest inspiration!
We hope that keeping Urals roaming the globe helps make it a little more connected, open and lighter.
They say Urals aren’t fast enough. Well, maybe slowing down is a good thing once in a while, to appreciate the journey, to find one’s way and rediscover what really matters.
Here’s to a peaceful, more thoughtful and a kinder world in the new 2024!
From our family to yours!

It is expensive and difficult to build motorcycles. All hands on deck went to steering production, logistics and support through our big transition (to Kazakhstan). That left little resource for marketing. Haven’t even had a chance to mention our new “Base”!
We are recalibrating, though. Here’s quick and simple overview of what we offer for 2023.
Naked Truth: 2023 GEAR UP 2WD One Model, Three Trims. Gear Up Base and Gear up Standard. Gear Up Expedition coming soon. Plus lots of a la cart options and over 90 custom colors.

Message from Madina:
On February 24th, 2022, an unimaginable tragedy unraveled for the whole World.
While we’ve felt totally and utterly powerless to stop the rockets, to stop the insanity, we promised to do the one thing that we could: to keep Ural alive, to protect our employees and to be there for our customers, against all odds.
Today, a year later, we can say – we did it.
Our team works relentlessly around the clock to keep production rolling. Every single bike coming from our new home in Kazakhstan is not only the best quality machine we at Ural have put out since we took over the brand a little over twenty years ago, but also a token of our fierce commitment to life.
To all our customers and friends around the world who support and believe in us, we are eternally grateful. Ride safe and share your light!
Here’s to Life!

2023 Urals are here!!!
Any other year, for any other motorcycle company, this would be great news, but not as much of a big deal as it is for us. For Ural, 2023 might have not have happened at all. It is only because of the unwavering spirit and the will to move forward of the people behind Ural, this past year we pulled off the biggest feat in the brand’s 80-year-old history – we managed to move and restart production in Kazakhstan!
To mark this defining moment, we decided to make every 2023 Ural with a special badge. The colors of the badge represent the colors of the flag of the country that welcomed us. We thank everyone who believed in us, supported and encouraged us along the way. This badge, and every Ural we make, comes with one promise that stands: to Never Give Up.
May 2023 bring Peace, first and foremost. The rest, we can overcome.
PS: Check out this 20 second video to mark this special occasion (no sound, just a thumbs up!)

It’s November2022 and Ural is into its fourth month of production out of Kazakhstan. We rarely take a moment to stop and think how we got here, and got here pretty darn fast. Perhaps the good old “one day at a time” is how you get anywhere. Although the most important is who is on your team every one of those days. We are lucky and grateful for everyone of our people who refuse to give up and keep pushing forward. Ural is us.
