Ural is the most recent motorcycle manufacturer to join the blacked-out dark side, with its limited-edition Star Wars-themed Dark Force model ... complete with a 3-foot extendable lightsaber. The company is making only 25 of the gloss-black sidecar rigs, with pricing set at US$15,000.

Other than the paint, the movie prop and some special LED lighting, there are no modifications to bring the typically low-performing Ural up to anything close to X-wing fighter standards. The Dark Force bikes come with the standard 749 cc OHV, two-cylinder, air-cooled, boxer-style engine that powers the entire Ural line-up. That translates to a fairly pedestrian 41 hp and 42 ft. lbs (57 Nm) of torque. Top speed is about 70 mph (113 km/h).

A four-speed forward and single speed reverse transmission tied to a driveshaft final drive give you the ability to get into and out of foreign territory. The requisite sidecar can fit R2D2 or even your favorite Wookie.

The company is taking reservations now on a first-come, first-serve basis for the select few who want the Ural Dark Force to be with them.

"Limited editions" by spraying black paint.:-)With a few updates on the 1936 BMW model. Still built in the stolen,railroad transplanted German factory. Why have they never been sold without a sidecar?

It needs a side hack so it don't fall over...
