Urals are a copy of old BMW from WWII times. They have upgraded it just a bit but if I remember correctly hp is around 38-45. Yes it somewhat low but the bikes are incredible easy to service, very rugged and the best part and most fun part is that if you get the one with side car you can have it with 2 wheel drice. Side car and the bike rear wheel will have a common power. Performs in extreme conditions with a breeze. Ural factory almost closed but a few Russian Americans bought it out (if I got the story right) and reduced the production but increased the quality of the final products. The engine internal, tranny, brakes and paint has been improved especially after around 2001-2002 (if memory serves me right).
Oh yeah, almost forgot. The sidecar is supossedly very comfortable for long trips
