The truck in the background is either a Chevrolet Express or GMC Savana. Dnepir/cossack The motorcycle is a Russian Ural. Most likely it is the new 750 cc model, which is being built since 2000.

I think this model is known in the US as Gear-Up. http://www.imz-ural.com/gearup/ In Europe, it's known as Ranger http://www.ural.cc/index.php?ranger

Year is stated as 1981 in the dialogue. They also state it's the same type used in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." four valve engine for sure engine size 250, or 500 XR for sure, XL have a steel tank... Honda XR500R. The 250 engine doesn't go up that close to the tank. 1981 sounds about right. HONDA 500 XR 1982
