Cagiva Raptor 650 v

Cagiva Raptor 650 review

Now they have taken the concept a step further with the Cagiva Raptor series, some of the most radical street bikes yet put into series production. This is one motorcycle that wears its engineering on the outside - so much so that the engine bay, festooned as it is with wires, pipes and cables, can look a little untidy from certain angles, while the styling of the minimal bodywork is angular, even reptilian, in its hunched stanceNow they have taken the concept a step further.

Cagiva V RAPTOR 650

Power for the Cagiva Raptor 650 comes from Suzuki SV650, one of the best middleweight twin-cylinder packages on the market. It`s a 645cc L-twin. Its way oversquare at 81x62.6mm but will spin safely to 10 000rpm and, as set up by Cagiva for the V-Raptor, kicks out a claimed 52kW. It`s fed by a brace of Mikuni BDSR39 CV carbs that offer instant response without too much slamming door effect at very small throttle openings and lots of strong, evenly spread mid-range torque.
