2012 Ural Yamal motorcycle with sidecar will let Sholay’s Jay and Veeru through a river


Yeh dosti hum nahi todenge, the famous song from Indian movie Sholay, which shows Jay and Veeru adventuring out on road, is hard to forget. If you notice, their day long adventure is all on land, but if the 2012 Ural Yamal was launched around 50 years back, we might have seen Amitabh and Dharmendra singing on their motorcycle with sidecar and oars, in a river.

Ural, the Siberian manufacturer of motorcycles has introduced for first time, a limited edition motorcycle with sidecars and an oar, if you are caught in a watery situation. Named Ural Yamal, this new motorcycle is named after the peninsula situated in Russia which is practically inhospitable, hostile and harsh, and frozen throughout the year. Yamal means “end of the earth” and is an apt name for this limited edition motorcycle which is sturdy, dependable and capable of enhanced performance far surpassing what a typical motorcycle is capable of.

Limited to just 50 numbers for the US markets. The company has even offered 3M all weather proof coating on the lower part of the sidecar body and fenders. It is painted flat orange so as to be easily discernible in most rugged of terrains and is fitted with dual fog lights so as to permit nighttime travel or journeys through terrains of insufficient lighting.

Seating for both rider and passenger are enhanced to offer the maximum possible comforts while spare tyre is available for any last minute emergencies. Ural have priced this limited edition model at $14,250.
