Cagiva Gran Canyon

Cagiva and Ducati have a history — once of the same group — and the Canyon is a product of the former relationship. Powered by the long-running V-twin that powers 900SS, the Gran Canyon was entry in the important large market until 2000. The engine is fitted with own airbox and exhaust, and the Weber-Marelli adjusted to suit.

The engine’s valves allow strong but are tricky to maintain. The Gran has an attractive, striking design. The bodywork makes it look smaller than some of its The long travel suspension well on road, though the brakes are marginal.

I didn’t what to expect when I up this issue’s test from Trackstar Motorsports. never ridden a dual-sport that weighs 500 plus with a full tank of nor one that costs the big side of grand. The motor is an old friend,

Ducati’s air-cooled, 904cc V- Twin has supplied the motivation for of my all-time favorite motorcycles, and latest version benefits the addition of an excellent Weber-Marelli injection system to replace the problematic carburetors. The injection is flawless, and the obviously lightened gives the motor a free-revving it didn’t have in earlier The 6-speed gearbox is a positive, masterpiece.

Clutchless shifting is effortless, and revs on the downshift brings wonderful music familiar to all Another advantage of fuel shows up in the 42.5 miles per it returned during this much of which was performed in tactical mode. I would around 45 mpg in normal use.

a solid decade of development it, I would say this old 2- valve is well and truly sorted.

not as agile as the lighter dual-sports, the Canyon is extremely stable in any of corner. It makes up for the extra with added torque and accelerating faster and with top end than any of it’s smaller And unlike most Urban bikes, the plush `Canyon is bit as comfortable on the freeway as it is in the concrete of the city.

Character-wise, I see it less an Urban and more of a refined Mafia hit man in a Italian suit; at ease in surroundings but never afraid to mix it up the rough crowd. This be the perfect motorbike for the next Bond thriller. If I were to limit myself to one motorcycle, athletic bruiser from would be a strong contender.

For I appreciate the quiet stock You can ride around in stealth and get away with a lot more antics without drawing attention. Yet when you want to some noise, opening the to the stop brings the snort of a woolly wildebeest up through the Need to make a quick in traffic? Just twist the and BWAaaaaarrrrrp!, from back to in seconds, no drama.

A silky-smooth greets the ear for most maneuvers, the Canyon doesn’t really noise until you get serious. For who wish to make a louder Fast by Ferracci is about to an exhaust can and F.I. chip that is reported to sound more brutal and deliver an 12 horsepower. I think if I were to that, I might go with one or two teeth on the rear sprocket, for top end and possibly even better

Ergonomics are spot-on. By day three, I had that One-with-the-machine feeling on bike. It communicates it’s well, and generates a lot of rider in the process. Fighting our way through I didn’t even have to about operating the motorcycle, I looked where I wanted to go and I was.

While a very bike overall, this just looks so FUNKY! The makes good sense, but have added that Italian flair which it stand out from the rabble. I definitely have to lose rear mudguard, almost did as a of fact!

I returned the bike with one of the bolts missing, I wonder that fell off?

minor annoyances: The speedometer is KPH in white on the outer ring, MPH in red on the ring, all on a black background. KPH right out at you, where I myself constantly doing to discern my actual speed. The time I entered a freeway, my grew wide upon 140 indicated on the dial! Also, still haven’t gotten the right.

Will the Italians learn? This one, not self-retracting, is rather awkward to with a very stiff and wants to dig into soft or any kind of off-road terrain. It use some sort of enlarged pad on the or go with one of those rubber-foot such as Honda put on my NX-650.

The were good, but not great. I why they went with instead of Brembo? Stoppies are not accomplished, the front wheel too easily, but that may be down to the

They are certainly adequate for riding, however. The turn indicators in the cockpit both regardless which side was and the … lights are very to read in daylight. But I am picking at here, this is really a competent motorcycle, no matter how you it.

The point of this exercise, the test, comes when I ask Would I buy one with my own money? it would serve all my needs as an only bike, but I would want to keep the NX for Winter. if I ride an NX already, where does the Cagiva fit in? Ah, that’s the idea, I think. This refuses to be classified and pigeonholed one single category.

Comparing the NX to the Canyon would be like an old Jeep CJ-5 against a new Cherokee. The `Canyon won’t do as off-road as the NX, but it does a LOT better on the plus it will handle the like a sportbike, and it has the speed to This sample passed my Hill Test with colors, the NX doesn’t come

I really think this is fun than you can buy anywhere else for kind of money. Next Gran Canyon is supposed to use the TL1000 motor, which more weight, more and less maintenance. It will be to see if the bike retains it’s character.

But to answer the question: if I didn’t have a garage of motorcycles already, the Cagiva Canyon would find a with me.
