2014 vs 2013 Ural
Posted in the Ural Motorcycle Forum
#1 Dec 29, 2013
I am out to buy a Ural as my Christmas present. I have decided on the Gear Up model, but I can't decide between the 2013 or the 2014 model. I understand that the 2014 is improved - 3 wheel disc brake, fuel injection, new steering damper, sealed rear wheel bearings and a few cosmetic changes.
The question is are the 2014 improvements worth $2,000 over the price for a 2013?
I have ridden 2 wheels and raced motocross and road racers, don't mind tinkering and tuning carbs, look to ride back roads ( the interstate is too dangerous!) and some off road and generally want to just cruise slowly.
Interested in any comments on year and model choice - pro or con.

They are way over priced. There are too many other
good bikes for the price. I use mine only for my grandkids.

For the money you spend on a Ural you can do better
getting one that has some good engineering and a
better dealer network. Good Luck

This is just my recent experience...and maybe I had some bad luck. I bought a brand new 2014 Ural T from New England Ural. And I bought the 2014 for the same reasons you mentioned - disk
brakes all around and fuel injection and steering damper. Trailered it home (250 miles) to Bar Harbor....It was so poorly set up - the hand brake was not even fastened - the rear brake pads wore
out in less than 80K and would not pass Maine State inspection. And the fuel injection is so far off
that the engine is very rough. They tell me that I have to bring it back to have the fuel injection
remapped and the new shoes installed at their shop.(this even after admitting that they do not
know how to adjust the rear brake - that brake system is new and they have no info on it yet).
I don't know what to do...just wish that I had bought the 1013 model.
Well....for what it is worth is my story. Good luck to you.
