Ural MIR 30 October 14
Ural introduced their Limited Edition MIR in honor of the joint Russian-American space mission 20 years ago when the Shuttle-Mir began an era of unprecedented cooperation and explorations. No wonder we felt a little nostalgic about that spirit of friendship and bridging the differences.
MIR comes in a brilliant orbital white with fine metal flake and finished with blue pearl clear. The result is a glowing white Ural with hues of blue that shift with the light - a perfect paint job for your intergalactic mission.
A solar panel serves as a battery tender and accessories power source. If your mission requires more storage capacity, the panel can be swapped with the included sidecar nose luggage rack. To defeat the darkness of space the sidecar is fitted with dual high-intensity LED lights, and a custom tonneau cover that uses reflective insulation and can be used as a rescue thermal blanket.
In order to reduce rider fatigue due to wind pressure and turbulence, the MIR is equipped with windshields for the rider and the sidecar co-pilot. Next comes the wrench. Travel in deep space is filled with the unknown, so they secured an emergency repair wrench onboard, complete with an embedded QR code for very special "when all else fails" emergency repair instructions.
2014 LE Ural "МИР" - the only motorcycle that comes with the solar panel, the wrench and the Lev Andropov's problem solving method.
