Cagiva Raptor 650 (2001 onwards)

The Raptor 650 is Gagivas’s most popular naked bike. This lesser known Italian brand has a pretty good reputation among bikers, although their bikes might not seem that attractive on paper.

As most other Cagiva motorcycles, the Raptor 650 is a joy to ride. It handles really well and looks great on the road. The design is very similar to the Ducati Monster 695.

It comes with a Japanese V-Twin engine that is solid and reliable. Unfortunately, the overall build quality of the Raptor 650 is average, the servicing cost is high and the parts are almost impossible to find.
