I'd guess that the cold war is truly over (but then a new one might just be starting). The prime Russian motorcycle manufacturer, Ural Open link in a new window, has produced 1,206 motorcycles last year (2013), and half of them were sold in the USA, namely 604 motorcycles and sidecars.

That is an amazingly high number of bikes sold in the USA, especially considering that it's Russian. But the Russian Ural has gotten a cult status, and people are flocking to this "old" BMW design, often equipped with sidecar.

In fact, 95% of Ural's production goes abroad; after the USA, it's Germany, France, Canada and Australia that benefit of this vintage brand (I will not lie to you, I myself hunker for an Ural sidecar).

I guess this will make Vlad Putin a happy man.
