THE 2024 ULTIMATE OVERLANDMOTORCYCLE Build

Powered by URAL, Built by Overland Expo

This year, rather than seeking out the latest, most tech-laden bike, we set our sights on the tried-and-true and looked to the classics for inspiration. Of all the truly iconic adventure motorcycles, perhaps none is more legendary (or more smile-inducing, for that matter) than the Ural. With a distinctive retro styling, three wheels, and a sidecar, the 2024 Ural Gear Up Standard will become our vision of the Ultimate Overland Motorcycle.

2024 URAL GEAR UP

Standard

The Ural’s on-demand two-wheel drive engages the rear driveshaft, sending power to both rear wheels and instilling confidence in even the most challenging circumstances. Moreover, the sidecar offers additional cargo space, allowing the rider to carry essential gear or bring along a friend on extended journeys.   

With the classic styling, a list of upgrades ranging from an electric starter to precision machining, and an all-new crankcase casting, Urals are more than modern enough to stand up to the rigors of adventure travel in the backcountry.  

The Ultimate Overland Motorcycle Build comes together thanks to our incredible build partners. Outfitting the Ural with some of the best performing and most unique products on the market, takes the bike to the next level of performance and comfort.
