Ural Ranger

A motorcycle for urban cowboys


The coating: matt. Always matt. In different shades, but guaranteed no chrome – definitely not shiny. A huge advantage as the rider is relieved of endless hours of polishing to keep the machine looking good – it ALWAYS looks good!

Scud, Pershing or Kalaschnikov are not included in the specification, although up until 2006 there was at least a holder for these toys on the sidecar boat; it was also useful for the fishing rod on the salmon hunt in Norway. This device fell victim to the Russian export restriction of military equipment.

A motorcycle like no other.   
The Ranger conscripts are well kitted out and have the best ground clearance of all the Ural bikes. The sidecar wheel is engageable but with no differential. This guarantees a beautiful straight line drive in the most difficult terrain (but beware – sidecar drive definitely NOT recommended for tarmac roads with hairpin bends!)
For the pilot the sturdy flat twin 750cc engine is easy to start at the push of a button, or for the really macho, or those in need of some physical training, a kickstart exists. The console has a simple but functional design; warning lights in green, red and blue, a speedometer which shows kilometers per hour and miles per hour plus total kilometers and trip facility. And, as on all the Ural bikes, quality switches and levers made in Italy. All so simple that there is no need for extensive training or reference to an owners manual.

The co-pilot is also armed  -  spade, spot light, luggage rack above the spare wheel, air pump, 17 and more wrenches, screw driver, pliers, a container for the spare fuel or other fluids and a paint spray can to correct possible driving errors of the pilot.

In any case this vehicle is an eye catcher on the road and off.
Aggressive car drivers become as meek as lambs, and even motorcycle boy racers hang behind a while before they dare to over-take.
On the parking lot or in front of the coffee shop the Ranger really stands out, and when ridden in reverse gear heads really turn. If caught on forbidden forest roads the Ranger raises a smile even from the natural enemy of the enduro motorcyclist – the forester.

From 2015 on the Ranger is available in the following colour schemes:

Ranger Nato:

The primary Ranger: camouflage in green-green-brown.
Surely the most military of all the Rangers. In production without break since 1995. Ranger Nato model year 2015 comes with sharp edges between the three colour tones. During the last decade the colour tones were fuzzy divided to each other.
The Ranger Nato shown here is equipped with optional accessories for which there is a supplement payable:
•    Heavy crashbar on the front of the sidecar body
•    Little luggage rack on the rear fender instead of passenger seat

Ranger Urban Camo:


Brand New! A glamourous camouflage of mild bright colour tones.
The Ranger Urban Camo shown here is equipped with optional accessories for which there is a supplement payable:
•    Heavy crashbar on the front of the sidecar body
•    Little luggage rack on the rear fender instead of passenger seat

Ranger Asphalt:


The very dark asphalt grey was introduced with the Limited Edition Model Ural Hybrid 13/14 and became popular immediately. Therefore we decided to offer this colour also for „normal“ Ranger, beginning with model year 2015.
The Ranger Asphalt shown here is equipped with optional accessories for which there is a supplement payable:
•    Heavy crashbar on the front of the sidecar body
•    Little luggage rack on the rear fender instead of passenger seat

Ranger Tundra:

Even though a typical Ranger, this model has the potential to become the most popular of all the Rangers. It is the powder coating of the sheet metal parts which makes this Ranger so interesting. A dark, very dark, deep green, in fact almost black colour, mixed in the Ural factory, it seems as if the ingredients for this colour tone were influenced  by the swamps, mosses, and braids of the perma-frost soil from the tundra of Siberia.

Sometimes, especially under certain light conditions, you can catch a light curtain of fog in the coating. That is the reason why in America this model is known as “Forest Fog”. There is most definitely something mystic about it.

Due to the sidecar drive and high ground clearance this sidecar outfit is of course perfect for the nomads amongst us, who may even prefer to drive in the Tundra as opposed to the nice flat road surfaces. The standard Ranger specifications such as spot light, spade, jerry can, spare wheel, and luggage rack on the spare wheel, are all very welcome.

The Tundra shown here is equipped with optional accessories for which there is a supplement payable:
 

•    Rollover bar for the sidecar
•    Protective bar on the sidecar front
•    Protective bar on the sidecar rear
•    Protective basket for the sidecar lights front and rear
•    Luggage rack behind the passenger seat
•    Luggage rack on the sidecar fender

All of these parts are black powder coated.
(Also available in shiny chrome)

Unfortunately these Ranger versions are history. They are not offered from 2015 on anymore. Owners of such Rangers certainly are lucky owners of specialities.

 


Ranger unicolour green matt:
The most discreet of all the Rangers, if you can travel discreetly at all with a Ural!
Even hunters, foresters, farmers and other natural enemies of motorcycle drivers will often turn a blind eye to a green matt Ranger when caught red-handed driving over forbidden meadows, and forests.

Ranger Gobi:
Camouflage cream-beige-brown. At introduction to the market in 2011 it became the number one on the popularity list of Rangers. The Gobi is not as military in appearance as the Nato, much milder. Even old-hippies bought  this bike.
