If you’re looking for a motorcycle with a sidecar that won't break the bank, this 2012 Ural Tourist fits the bill! Equipped with all the features you need in order to ride further and more comfortably, you can have this bike today for only *$9,999, but you’d better head to Reno’s Powersports KC today, because every Cycle Connections staff member that was drooling over it at our photo shoot also wants to buy this one!

Equipped with leading link forks, electric and kick start, electronic ignition and a 2.9 cubic ft. trunk, this bike is an affordable way to enter the wonderful world of sidecar motorcycling! Whether it’s a family picnic, a trip to the store, or cruising to your favorite bike night with your doggie riding shotgun, you’ll be amazed at the versatility of this classic-looking sidecar motorcycle.



And if you want to travel around the world or just across the country, these babies also come in 2WD so the mud and snow won’t slow you down. Make sure to check out all the Ural models, and they come in a variety of classic colors including army green, camouflage, and about any other color you could possibly want!



We’re also planning to take one of these babies for a test ride next month, so make sure to check out the Bike Review section of our July 2013 issue for more info!
