The Russian-made Ural Sahara sidecar motorcycle. Despite their antique look, the newer Urals feature Brembo disc brakes and fuel injection. They are powered by a 750cc “boxer” twin 4-stroke engine that makes 41 horsepower and 42 pound fee of torque, through a 4-speed transmission and shaft drive. The entry level Sahara retails for $17,999. The version seen here is outfitted with a $2,000 “off road package.” Ural says it can get about 35 miles per gallon and is advertised to have freeway cruising speed of 70 miles per hour.
