Russian sidecar manufacturer, Ural, has decided to change things up with this year’s Limited Edition Ural Air. The Urals are legendary for handling some of the most challenging terrain and this limited edition encourages riders to explore further… on the ground and in the air.
What’s over the ridge? What’s just beyond your campsite? What obstacles lie ahead after a big storm? When the trail ends or nightfall is looming, the rider or passenger becomes a pilot, sending out their eye in the sky to determine the best route or quickest escape.
WITH THE PUSH OF A BUTTON
A specially designed compartment opens on the nose of the sidecar, revealing a DJI Spark drone. The drone controller is firmly attached to the sidecar with custom made RAM Mount. The sidecar passenger, turned navigator, can use the Spark’s video capturing technologies to gain the bird’s eye view of the path ahead.
Ural Air comes in Slate Grey metallic colorway with satin finish and features all black powertrain. Standard equipped with on-demand 2 wheel drive and sidecar mounted spare wheel this Gear Up based model takes you further.
As with previous Limited Edition Urals, there’s always an added bonus – Ural Air comes with a windsock…on a selfie stick. After all, you can’t operate a drone ship without proper wind tracking technology.
