The mechanical friction-type steering damper is gone, replaced by a 16-position hydraulic unit to help improve handling over a variety of conditions. The upper and lower triple clamps were redesigned as well and are now made of forged aluminum alloy.
Designers also changed the appearance of the new Urals, incorporating knee pads and badges on the tank and designing a new dashboard with up-to-date indicator lamps.
Other features standard on the T, Patrol, Gear-Up and M70 models are electric and kick-start ignition, four-forward and one-reverse gearbox, double-sided swingarm with two Sachs springs on the rear and a single-sided swingarm with Sachs spring on the sidecar. The T, Patrol and Gear-Up feature IMX leading-link forks while the M70 comes with 40mm Marzocchi telescopic forks.
