The much anticipated Udyr rework was teased by Riot Games a few days ago.
Today the developer gave us more details about his reworked abilities.

Riot Games revealed a gameplay trailer showcasing the Udyr rework a few days ago. The developer has retained his unique stance based playstyle while giving him a much needed makeover. The Spirit Walker now channels Freljordian demigods instead of his earlier animal stances. His new kit retains several elements from his older kit including the bonus attack speed, stun, shield, and area of effect damage. He now also has crowd control resist and chain lightning effects incorporated into his kit. Let’s look at the Udyr rework in terms of his new abilities.

What are Udyr’s reworked abilities?

Passive - Bridge Between

Awakened Spirit: Udyr has four basic abilities that swap between stances. He can periodically recast his active stance to Awaken it for bonus effects, with a shared cooldown between stances.

Monk Training: Each time Udyr enters or Awakens a stance, his next two attacks gain attack speed and refund some of Awaken’s cooldown.

Udyr's Q now does Lightening damage to targets in its awakened form.

Q - Wilding Claw

Udyr gains a burst of attack speed and his next two attacks deal bonus physical damage.

Awaken: Udyr gains even more attack speed, and his next two attacks chain lightning off the target, bouncing up to 6 times. Lightning can strike the same target multiple times, dealing heavy damage to isolated targets.

His W remains similar to his earlier Turtle Stance.

W - Iron Mantle

Udyr gains a shield and his next two attacks restore health.

Awaken: Udyr gains a bigger shield, his next two attacks heal even more, and he restores a percentage of his max health over the next few seconds.

His E also remains similar, but instead of ghosting it now makes him immune to crowd control when awakened. 

E - Blazing Stampede

Udyr gains a burst of move speed. His first attack against each target while in this stance lunges a short distance and stuns them (per-unit cooldown).

Awaken: Udyr gains even more move speed and briefly becomes immune to crowd control.

The Udyr rework's most changed ability is his ultimate, both in terms of the look and mechanics.

R - Wingborne Storm

Udyr temporarily summons a storm around him that slows and damages nearby units. His next two attacks cause the storm to pulse, dealing bonus magic damage.

Awaken: Udyr unleashes the storm, causing it to deal additional damage and chase after nearby enemies.

Udyr’s reworked version will be available in patch 12.16 scheduled to go live by Wednesday, 24th August 2022.
