Cagiva Xtra-Raptor 1000 from Italy

Post by dueruote » Fri Oct 07, 2016 8:23 am

Hi !

My name is Marco and I live in Italy.
I just bought a 2005 Cagiva Xtra-Raptor 1000 numbered 478/999.
I like that bike. The look is great and the engine has got a huge torque at low RPM.
I can't see any defect at the moment. The bike shows 20.000Km and I do believe they are true.
I'm quite experienced in second-hand bikes. I bought my fisrt bike in 1998 and so far I changed 17 of them (almost all used).
I obvuously owned one at the time and not more. The market for used bike in Italy is very good. I try to find the best price every time, so I can retrieve the same amount of money when I sell it.
By the way... let's discuss about the Raptor. It's not modified and I like it. It's not easy to find an "untouched" Raptor in Italy because most of the owners heavily modify them.
I just performed some good maintenence actions such as oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, radiator coolant, brake oil, caliper cleaning and new tyres (Metzeler Spoterc M7RR). I also applied some stickers to the wheels (I don't like light grey colour for the wheels) and added some gold CNC parts.

Well... that's all. Nice to meet you !
I just have a technical question, but I'll use the appropriate section.

Welcome aboard!
I like it just as it is too! What's to modify with an Xtra, maybe just an exhaust swap to complete the package! It's nice, clean and well cared for. More miles than my Vraptor but tidier... Must be Italian sunshine

Your Rapter looks like a sci fi robot dragon! and it breaths fire too! It singed my eye brows and boiled my eyes at the lights! smudge

The reality is the bike is even better in reality compared to pictures. In addition, the CNC golden screws are more visible.
