Ural sT

The great news shocked the world (at least the specialized one, not the one dedicated to sell). The old IMZ said yes to the sT project.

Without a doubt the project was aimed since the very beginning to the US market. Guided by IMZ-Motorcycles (the US Ural importer and maybe the main responsible for the new brand's commercial direction) the project sT drinks from the ashes of the old Ural Solo that never had a commercial file in the US.

Now, IMZ is getting ready for following the United States guideline launch the new sT in the framework of the also new T concept.

Leaving the accesories to the minimum, with attractive and modern colours and accurate make-up the new T series seems to give some fresh air to the old russian catalog.

Despite everything the american commercial machina is telling now ("...the motorbike the russian designers always wanted to create and never could", "...the russian police didn't want the riders to run away with faster bikes that the sidecar ones they rode...")IMZ has 3 models designed as solo machines in its portfolio.

The Ural Solo is in fact the first try of the Irbit's factory to create a new machine far way from the sidecar slavery. Then the Ural Wolf, the first (and unique) russian custome bike and finally the successful Retro Experiment (the cornerstone of the new IMZ) put on the road the Ural Retro Solo (The only Ural factory approved in Europe to ride with or without sidecar).

The problems to adjust the engine for complaining the the new and ever more demanding Euro3 rule made the Solo and Wolf bike to be dropped from the european product list.

Now, IMZ is trying it again in the United States with this updated and very interesging propose which will be launch next July 2010.
