Ural-Gaucho

Created in collaboration with Pendleton Woolen Mills, the 2013 Ural Gaucho Rambler Limited Edition celebrates the lone traveler of the old west. Maybe an odd homage for a bike made in Siberia, but still a pretty one.

On top of the standard 2WD Ural Patrol, the Gaucho Rambler brings special “Pacific Blue” paint and includes a co-branded wool Pendleton blanket and an enamel camp cooking set which includes a kettle, two mugs, two plates and a frying pan. A Navajo-style motif adorns the sidecar’s nose and the seat and passenger compartment cover are in sun faded canvas. Price, over the standard model, increases from $13,699 to $14,350. Only Gauchos will be made.

“Ural and Pendleton are two companies which at different points in time ventured out to find home in the American West, both of which endured many challenges and yet all the while maintained their authenticity,” states Ural VP Madina Merzhoava. “Paying homage to our beginnings and the pioneering spirit is what connects the two brands and inspired this collaboration.”

    The “50″ in “only Gauchos will be made” is missing

    I love that it comes with a blanket, thought I don’t know if I like the paddle that came with the Yamal more or not. One day I’d like to own one of the goofy Ural limited editions they seem to come out with each year.

  • Curtis Caulfield

    Want.

      It is one curious machine. Check out where the right front turn signal is. A spare tire too. No pic of Putin riding one?

      If someone left it on my front step…I’m pulling it into the garage. ‘Want’

      • runnermatt

        So I’m guessing you can never take the sidecar off and ride the bike by itself?

        • Send Margaritas

          Not if you don’t want to sleep on the couch for a few days. ;)

          Look more closely at the picture. This is not just a bolt-on sidecar, but one with a drive-shaft to the sidecar wheel. If I recall correctly, the side-car models also have different front steering geometry.

          • runnermatt

            I was mainly referring to the where the right front/rear turn signals were in the comment I was referring too. I noticed the drive-shaft as well, but wasn’t aware of the steering geometry change, but a change in geometry would make sense if the bike and sidecar cannot be separated.

            I was more or less pointing out (with a question) that if someone purchases a Ural Sidecar model then they can never ride just the bike. So they don’t go trading their bike for one if they prefer two wheels over three. I’ll admit that I don’t know if this is true of all of Ural’s sidecar models.

            Does anyone have experience riding a non-sidecar Ural?

    Comes with a wool blanket and kettle?! Seems like Ural is the only company that has a pulse on what the youngsters really want.

      The blanket and kettle (and the sidecar for that matter) will make it easier to convince the girlfriend. Seems like the uber picknick vehicle to me!

  • stever

    That blanket is probably worth the difference alone.

  • Chris

    If it celebrates the “lone traveler,” why does it include two mugs and two plates?

    • Mark D

      And a sidecar.

      • TP

        A place to sleep?

    • runnermatt

      So you don’t have to wash dishes so often while on the road. The side car is just for luggage, not a passenger.

  • Send Margaritas

    It makes a Street Glide look like a sportsbike!

  • Dan Kearney

    Pretty photos. No specs to speak of, although the mechanical specs are identical to all the other 2WD Ural models (Not that that is a bad thing).

    Of special note should be that this is the very last carburetted Ural. Starting with the 2014 model year all Urals have Keihin throttle body fuel injection and hydraulic disc brakes on all three wheels. And a price boost to handle the new tech.

  • aircraftmech

    I definitely like this bike. Nice color and cool name for the bike too.

    The blanket will keep you warm while you wait for a tow truck, after your notoriously unreliable bike has broken down on you. Again.
