We got chills, they’re multiplyin’. The new Ural prototype people have been buzzing about is officially public and, well, it’s electrifyin’! Here is Corey’s first take on an early-phase version of the electric Ural, powered by a Zero Motorcycles powertrain package, that we tested back in March.
A quick note: this isn’t going to be a geeked-out tech-centric post full of data and decimals. You can find the bike’s full specs here. We’re more about the vibe; the overall ‘feels’ you get when riding through the wind on a motorcycle. Of course, we’re in love with the big jump in horsepower from their internal combustion engines (60hp! Up from 41) and its 81ft-lbs of torque. After many hours spent in the saddle of gas-powered Urals, the feeling is immediately and noticeably different. You can feel it in your innards upon acceleration. Is the experience better? We’ll get there; read on.
