Might be 205 but neat anyway. Mods to intake and exhaust.

"Factory managers and engineers took five 2014 Urals on a trip to Chistop Khrebet, the area in the northern Ural mountains near where the infamous Dyatlov Pass incident occurred. Motorcycles are stock except modified intake and exhaust system for water crossing. Hours of video from this escapade is being edited now, a short film is coming soon. In the meantime, watch this raw footage."

Be willing to bet they made sure the cases were sealed real well also. I like the snorkel aceoss the handlebar of the yellow one.

None of the seals are of any value keeping water out of the wheel bearings or drive shaft bearings or rear end on my 2006 when it was new. Heck the original ignition system could not keep both cylinders firing if caught in a light rain.

Wonder if this is going to be more extreme riding advertising & then void the warranty when applying for a warranty claim.

It does look like fun.
