Aprilia/Vor/Tm...Need Advice!

Been a member here for quite a while - a Husky guy from birth. Actually, first bike was a Indian 50 :cool: Anyway, currently riding a 98' ATK 260LQ - an amazing bike considering - much like my 87' Husky 430XC. Looking to go FUN four stroke.

Bikes I am considering:

2002 TM 400 ISDE (Ohlins frnt/rear, titanium spring, Scotts SS)
2002 VOR 530 ISDE (Electric start, titanium spring)
2007 Aprilia 450, new, just had seals replaced.

Bikes are brand new. I've ridden/raced trail for 40 plus years, and am open to suggestions - I ride currently in the Colorado Mountains. Husaberg would be my first choice, however I'm struggling with the price of even used bikes. Husqvarna, fuel injected, is an option as well.

The three mentioned are under $4,000.

I could really use some advice, thoughts, ideas - looking for something fun and different...also, I'm only 5'9"!

Thanks!

Todd

IMHO
Aprillia - few Aprillia dealers are into off-road bikes, so not much support there
VOR- basically out of business, very limited parts sources inthe US or Europe
TM-not many dealers, but you can deal directly with the importer Pete Vetrano 909-608-0082 in Upland , CA if your dealer is not much help. TM parts are readily available from Pete and others for all years.

Just wanted to finish my thread - I purchased a 2011 Husaberg FE390 - couldn't be happier with it.

Well? I have a KTM dealer about 15 minutes away - I purchased my Berg from Steamboat Springs - a Husaberg dealer about 3 hours away.
