Navigator never fails to amaze in any area of performance. Magnificent and easy to handle, this touring motorbike can comfortably carry the passenger as well as bags and a small trunk. Ideal for those who like travelling, and reliable thanks to low maintenance (valve adjustment every 24,000 km) and precision building. These characteristics, to a certain extent present in some of the motorbikes made by the competition, are only part of its many assets.

When the gas is turned on you discover that this touring motorbike despite being quiet delivers almost a hundred horse power which is easily tameable and capable of giving a pleasure, unexpected on bikes of the same category. Its exciting performance is bridled in the sound and intuitive mechanics, which give confidence even in the most challenging situations.

The Navigator is fast when taking bends, thanks to the eighteen inch rear wheel.The outstanding drive is further complemented by the powerful braking of the Nissin callipers and the suspension work that backs up the steady directional control even at a high speed. This versatility makes the Navigator a different motorbike from its rivals on the market so much so that it can be considered the only Touring Sport motorbike available on the market.

The complexity of the Cagiva Navigator frame is justified by the necessity of meeting many requirements such as sturdiness when fully loaded, steady directional control and a comfortable handling.As a result we have built a trestle structure with square and rectangular tubes which links to a steel rear swing arm support plates.The engine mounting is particularly attractive and finely forged in aluminium alloy, the material also used for the rear swing arm.The quality of the suspension is exceptional for this category of vehicle.

At the front there is telehydraulic fork with 45mm diameter stems whereas at the rear there is a single shock absorber which can be adjusted in the pre loading and in the hydraulic brake which is connected using finely crafted alloy aluminium leverages.

Unfaltering, environmentally friendly, capable of steady as well as high speed, the 90 V twin cylinder adapt itself excellently to any situation. Downrated of about 8 horse power in sixth gear compared to the standard units of the Raptor ( and with a limiting device set to 9000rpm in sixth), this propulsion unit is appreciated also for its low running costs thanks to the low fuel and maintenance demand.An accurate rimapping of the integrated ignition and injection gearcase has also made this engine more docile, therefore more suitable to the versatile touring features of the Navigator.Among the technical specifications that it shares with the Raptor range there is a system of "secondary air" which has the advantage of limiting the harmful emissions.

It boasts several distinctive elements such as the double elliptic front lamp, a sized engine-guard or the integration of the tank and the front fairing: strong signs of design and personality. The Navigator is extremely streamlined and provides excellent comfort both to the rider and to the passenger, thanks to the right balance between saddle and footboard and to the aerodynamic protection provided by the compact and attractive front fairing.The digital analogue instrument system has been expanded: as well as the usual information it provides a self diagnosis system which allows the display of possible failures through symbols. It is equipped with a parcel rack and there is an optional set of specially designed suitcases which are available in colours matching the chassis; they do not spoil the Navigator's streamlining and guarantee more than 140 litres of locked storage space.

The main priority when designing the Navigator was to ensure the improvement of the passenger's comfort; on this type of motorbike he/she is not an occasional guest but a travel companion who shares emotions and pleasures.

For these reasons the Navigator, is equipped with a comfortable saddle and an ergonomic handle as well as antiheat kit. This feature includes specially provided guards placed over the outer parts of the exhaust manifolds and of the balancer in order to decrease the heat especially in a low gear or in city traffic.Thanks to their shiny stainless steel surface these guards also improve the elegance of the exhaust manifolds and the appearance of the raised silencers which are a strong technical and aesthetic characteristic of this motorbike.
