The Cagiva Raptor 650 will be back in UK showrooms this autumn following a major makeover, thanks to investment from Malaysian car giants Proton at the end of last year.
Launched in 1999, the Raptor 650 was designed by Miguel Galluzzi, the man behind the Ducati Monster. The new model, designated the Raptor 650ie because of its fuel-injected engine, adheres closely to the original design.
The most obvious change is the 645cc 90° V-twin Suzuki engine with digital SDTV (Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve) injection and PAIR (Pulsed secondary air injection), as fitted to the popular Suzuki SV650. This engine is one of the most sophisticated in its class and provides the ideal blend of power, torque and throttle response.
The Cagiva Raptor 650ie will initially be available in Cagiva Red, with silver wheels, priced at £4,999 on the road.
