Limited Edition Ural Gaucho Rambler
Russian manufacturer of motorcycles with sidecars, Ural, is now taking orders for the limited edition Gaucho Rambler. To create the limited edition Gaucho Rambler Ural teamed up with world class woolen weaver, Pendleton Woolen Mills. The unique matte finished Pacific Blue color and sunburnt canvas upholstery for the sidecar are from the creative minds at Pendleton Woolen Mills as is the “Journey West” blanket with a limited commemorative label that comes with each bike.
The limited edition Gaucho Rambler features Ural’s on-demand two-wheel-drive and each sidecar is accessorized with a passenger windscreen, a spare tire and a GSI Outdoors camp kit. There will only be 50 of these bikes built, with an MSRP of $14,350.
“Ural and Pendleton are two companies which at different points in time ventured out to find home in the American West, both of which endured many challenges and yet all the while maintained their authenticity,” says Madina Merzhoeva, Ural’s VP of Sales & Marketing. “This year Pendleton’s anniversary celebrates 150 years of weaving textiles in America and Ural marks its 20th year in the US. Paying homage to our beginnings and the pioneering spirit is what connects the two brands and inspired this collaboration.”
