Ural Motorcycle is ecstatic and why not because the first phase of their development is over.Supported by Zero Motorcycles for their components like motors, batteries, controller and other components which made an effective power-train package and this built a one wheel drive cT chassis on which the Ural Motorcycles platform was build. Also engineering support was provided by Zero Motorcycles during the development and testing phase
Again the fabrication and design was made by ICG based in California.
What the motorcycle offers for rider?
Urals answer : Comfort, stability and safety, not to mention more space for batteries.t’s very stable thanks to its three wheels. It doesn’t have clutch or gear shifter, twisting the throttle is basically all you need to operate the bike. And it accelerates very quickly.
And most important thing was bike was tested in rain, snow, highways and city streets.
Initial Proof of Concept was developed with several iterations looking for right and best configuration of the electric powertrain package.
Ural says they faced challenge to find right location for batteries while maintaining passenger comfort, storage capacity and stability distinctive to Ural sidecars.
Ural will not go into production of this motorcycle anytime soon.The decision will ultimately be based on market research, consumer and industry experts’ feedback.It may take around 2 years.
