Cagiva Raptor 650 Review

Raptor 650 Ride Impression

not ridden a Monster so I can’t a direct comparison, but if looks are to go on they have a lot in common. as the 600 Monster has a 900 big brother, so the Raptor 650 has a engined big brother.

I reckon 650 is right for this style of It has plenty of mid-range. It’s off the mark, incredibly agile and to handle. It delivers the same as the 900 Monster.

Consider the extra punch you are to expect from the TL motor, but also that you will be four to five grand for it.

The 39mm Mikuni carbs crisp acceleration and the 650 motor serious at around 3400rpm. It cleanly and effortlessly through to — the revlimiter is at 11,700rpm and the long wheel-base keeps the wheel on the deck. The engine is so that it’s easy to it’s a twin. I think have to change the pipes to me that it is.

Two Brothers would fix it.

Although the rear end accommodation questionable, my wife tells me more than an hour a break that it passes the … or knees behind the test with flying It would be fine for touring but is little room for luggage since the tank is not metal, tank bags are useless. I with a bit of imaginative adjustment, the could be clamped to the top of the frame.

don’t try it and then blame me if it off. I offer it only as an suggestion.

The Cagiva offers of ground clearance and with a 205kph on tap it should satisfy in the market for a multi-purpose … bike. At $14,995 it is also value for money.

The Suzuki gear-box is superb. is slick and precise and neutral is a problem. The clutch is on the light so no sore wrist in town, and the Well the front Brembos are the as those on the TL model. Twin discs with four-pot

The 650 weighs 180kg and the TL 192kg, so the capacity of the 650 is absolutely sensational.

The styling of the bike is unquestionably and with very few exceptions bikes look good. My reservation is the over zealous use of bits, especially around the The engine and frame look

The muscular-looking tubular steel never distracts from the 90-degree V-twin liquid-cooled I think it’s a more looking engine than the TL.

The flourish is a plate on the frame that MV Agusta manufactured machine.

I think we may see more of output bearing the prestigious MV

Cagiva may well be a big name in of Europe, but there can be no argument the world wide reverence for MV And while purists will scoff at the suggestion that an MV ever have anything but an engine, economic reality wins out over sentiment.

Incidentally the Cagiva name is up of the first two letters of three The Ca is from the name of the Castiglioni who own the business. Gi is from Giovani, a member, and Va is from Varese, lakeside base.

As Alan said when he tested the in the November 2000 issue, bike should come a written warning saying: riding this motorcycle become addictive. I couldn’t more, it’s a well package and fun to ride.
