For 2021, Ural’s annual limited edition model release takes the form of a rugged and highly equipped off-road outfit, dubbed the Gear Up Geo.
Ural has released a new limited edition outfit every year since 2008, however, its latest model appears to be its most adventurous.
Distinguishing the Ural Geo is a four-colour camo livery with orange accents, as well as performance upgrades like fully adjustable Nitron suspension, a GPR exhaust system and all-terrain tyres.
The Ural Geo also gains an external fuel container, a unique fairing, handguads, and a dual-outlet USB charger, among other exterior touches.
It’s based on the Gear Up platform with a 31kW/57Nm 749cc air-cooled boxer engine with an on-demand two-wheel-drive system.
Just 20 Ural Gear Up Geo units will be sold worldwide, priced overseas from around $US26,999, which roughly translates to $35,000 in Australian currency.
Ural sells a number of full-time models Down Under, however, a spokesperson from the sidecar specialist told INFO MOTO not to expect any Geo units to land in local showrooms.
Australian customers can now purchase the standard Ural Gear Up 2WD, priced from $27,990 plus on-road costs, which joins the entry-level cT ($23,290) and Ranger ($26,490).
Last year, Ural released a limited-edition FRWL (From Russia With Love), which featured James Bond-themed design cues like a 12V power outlet disguised as an eject button, and satin-grey paint which harks back to the Aston Martin DB5.
The outfit also features diamond-stitched upholstery, chrome and stainless trim, halogen driving lights – and for some reason – badges declaring the names of “the most successful Russian female operatives”.
