A 2006 Cagiva 650 Raptor. Unfortunately, the Paso had to go in part exchange but i'm now looking forward to riding something modern with up to date technology. I pick it up next Saturday, 2nd May, so i'll report back my first ride impressions.

You sold a Paso ?

You have my sympathies.

Sweet: I'll certainly look forward to your review...

Just looked up the spec here:

70bhp & 180kg (dry) sounds a lot of fun.

But it has a frame by MV Augusta. :)

A good write up by the tester as well.

I don't care. You can't really class it as Italian, can you? ;)

Hmm. I suppose that depends if the motor is a straight forward import from Japan and then just slotted in to the frame or if it is built up from components in Italy and has Cagiva stamped on it. I've decided it is the latter so yes, by default, it is Italian !! :lol2:
