The local VOR dealer has a new 2000 VOR503 for $2,995. Is that a good price? They said it is $7,500 retail. They also have new 2000 Gas Gas EC300 and a EC250 for the same price. Any coments on these bikes would be appreciated

These are all great prices, but I would stay away from the VOR, getting parts for such a rare bike would probably be a nightmare.

The VOR is a competition bike that compares closest to the Husaberg 550 or whatever their medium thumper is now or the KTM 520. It will have all the power you ever wished for in a light package. I would be concerned with the quality. Husabergs that are also from a small factory seem plagued with all sorts of problems around here, although some do last.

At that price it sounds like a steal, though. They are made of top-quality components like the 'bergs, I guess the problems arise when they don't get enough testing miles.

The GGs from what I hear are well-mannered enduro bikes, much like the smaller KTMs.

They are not that rare. they are imported by ATK http://www.vor.it/ing/home.htm

Is it a 503 MX or enduro. I understand the MX has a hit almost like a big bore 2-stroke but the enduro is tuned completely different so as to have roll on power from idle up.
I'd buy the VOR, matter of fact I've been considering them anyway.

At that price they all would be a steel. I think that Weimdog has a VOR. You might PM him about quality and cost of parts, ect... All are exotic bikes and parts will proabley be a little higher than say a Yamaha or honda.

If you don't want the bike, let me know where it is. I'll take it no questions if it's still on a floor. (the mx model) Well...maybe one question, 3 speed?

I've not ridden one, but I have closely inspected one of these beautys...
very intresting piece of quality craftmanship.

MX has 3 speed, Enduro has 5.

It is my understanding that the entire gear box is removable and can be replaced with either one.

the 2002 enduros have electric start.

That's why I asked the question, hi. :)

If I'm not mistaken, they have a 4 speed available for them as well...im sure weimer or VOR could answer this.

The Bikes are in North Idaho

If anyone one wants one of these bikes I will let you know where to call when I get home. (I am at work now). The VOR is the enduro model
