Hi Smeg!

These VOR bikes are the best there is as far as I know. They are made for the expert racer though, not just for people having fun.
The championship in Greece was won by this bike also.
VOR is the firm that took over Vertemati which was a vary small (two brothers and their mom!) Italian form producing a handfull of bikes each year.
The engine and frame are their own!

If you look closely at the picture below you will see that there is a small window to the left of the engine, from which one can see the gears working inside!! The cam is gear driven, and the whole thing is handmade like a jewel

Here's a pic of the original Vertemati

No offense, but those Vor's are POS! They always break down.
I will agree that when they are up and running, not much can touch them. I dig their tranny's!!

Actually the guy who won the championship in Greece had to use a Yamaha YZF for one race as BOTH his Officially prepared VORs had problems!!!
So it's true they brake down a lot, but they look GREAT! and have the BEST sound and beat anything else when they run

front and rear) and the suspension is softer on a *True* SM. The Duke has stiff suspension and is more street oriented. It would be better suited for the track if you were to ride it like a sportbike.
The Duke I would be a good example of what a *True* Sm is.

Also if you'll Notice that KTM has released a KTM LC640 SuperMoto. It is a *True* SM
The SM also has a leading axle and a longer wheelbase. If you wan't to slide it's easier to control on the SM. It's would also be better Off Road.

Anything else Pete?
Wow thanks ronny! You and I think so much alike!

well....

i just got back from riding my DUKE II all afternoon, and i dont think there is much that can beat it on the street at lower street speeds, my friend on a GSX-R 750 could length me on the straights, but i would catch him quick when we got into the twisties.... it was a lot of fun, and i love the bike.

mine has the spoked wheels, and i think they look cool.. but i dont really plan on hitting any jumps with it, thats what my 2001 YZ250F is for

my dad, who has a 2002 ducati monster S4 Fogarty loves to ride the duke because it handles so good and is so much fun...

but i think im going to save up and get a superbike (ducati 748s) so i can experience both
