Russian brand celebrates with limited edition sidecar bike

We’ve been wooed before by the analog good looks of Ural motorcycles (such as the the Ural sT), and the Russian brand is now releasing a special edition motorcycle to celebrate its 70 years in the market. Like the limited edition Ural Taiga, the M70 comes loaded with equipment to survive a general apocalypse — sidecar, spare wheel, canvas tonneau cover, wooden floor mat and shovel all come standard. As does the machine gun mount, a nod to Ural’s military past. In fact the new M70 is a tribute to the M72 military motorcycle used in WWII, and thus only comes in olive drab livery. But don’t think the bike is a complete dinosaur — the M70 has been updated with modern componenents such as Marzocchi forks, Sachs shocks and Brembo brakes. Get your very own Russian military motorcycle (with sidecar, naturally) for $14,200.
