Ural has some great sales numbers in October

Sales have been pretty good over at Ural.  The latest news from them to hit our inbox said that sales have been pretty brisk; this past October in particular.  It was their biggest October retail sales since 2006! Overall they've they've experienced a 30+ % boost in sales this year.

In global terms the 2WD models continue to be a major portion of sales but the T-series bikes (Ural T and Patrol T) are becoming the second largest segment.  Canadians still seem to like the 2WD models best.

An interesting bit of Ural demographics is that they've seen a two-fold increase in the number of younger customers this year. With every sixth customer now being 35 or younger, Ural is proving that quite a few new generation riders these days are choosing simplicity, functionality and fun over ever-growing hp's and cc's.

They also successfully completed the required emission re-testing for EPA certification.

And now for some 2011 model news:

All 2011 models will have this:

- Aluminum rims on all models (that means that not only Patrols and Tourists but all other models including Retro and sT will have perfectly round rims made from high-grade aluminum alloy)
- Standard (factory installed) Duro tires
- Trunk locks on all (sidecar) models (no, we didn't forget to fix sidecars seat back)
- New tonneau covers and aprons made from Cordura fabric       
- New round indicator lamps
- Quite a few other smaller changes (such as upper fork bolts made from aluminum , improved high strength final drive ring gear bolts and more)


2011 Patrols now come in additional standard colors (which you've already seen on our site HERE)  - orange with silver stripes (Ural calls it Orange Russian) and blue with white stripes (Baikal Blue is the nickname for this one):
