Post by Teetwelve866 » Sun Apr 05, 2020 7:24 pm

Hi everyone thanks for adding me, the topic tile is because I like the look, sound etc of the Raptors and want to be a Raptor owner soon (not easy given the COVID 19 pandemic).
Not had a Cagiva before but owned alot of different bikes over the 36 ish years I have been riding most recently an RF900 which I enjoyed but decided to have a change and move on. I live in in West Yorkshire (UK in case there are members from other countries and that's all for now.

Welcome to the madhouse! There's always a selection of Cagiva's finest on ebay, though I should point out that Raptors come in 125cc 2T form as well as the 650 and 1000cc 4T versions, the latter having a number of styles. Hope you find one soon! :nod:

Thanks for the welcomes, much appreciated
The one I want is the naked 1000 ( I was going to put a picture here but I'll do some searching on posting images, searching the subject will help me navigating around the site).

And a good choice of model too! I'd probably have gone for a red one if I had the chance, but when I was looking several years ago there were very few Raptor 1Ks for sale anywhere and I grabbed the pristine silver one that sits waiting for a nice ride. Classy, it is, and there's plenty of red Italian paint sitting around it...
