Little needs to be said about the V-Raptor 650: it is enough to see and experience it. Muscular shapes, impressively aggressive, it represents a new frontier for motorcycle design. It has been designed for the person who has already tried everything as far as performance, roadholding and handling are concerned; the 2004 model has more sport orientated features.

This new improved shock absorber and the suspension leverage were redesigned in order to raise the rear part by 30mm. This new trim, thanks to a bigger clearance allows the achievement of a rake of a very sporty motorcycle and at the same time, the new load distribution (50%- 50%) transforms the front section into a sharp blade capable of striking extraordinarily precise directions.The thrilling potentials of the V-Raptor 650 is also enhanced by the handlebar configuration; low and wide to better control the stunt quality of this motorbike.

Extremely aggressive in every way, in 2004 it will be made in Cagiva red: one more reason to take it out on the track.

Raptor 650 is a great performer, capable of taking on the most demanding roles thanks to its generous character and a spectacular stage presence. It can happily live in the most chaotic traffic, make heads turn in the most mundane squares, go out of the city very fast and perform very successfully on the track. But people like Raptor 650 above all because of its minimalist style which aims at improving the looks of a technologically advanced engine and of remarkable engineering.

Sharp lines sculpture the plastic polymers of the lifting tank, which allows an easy inspection of the air filter and of the rear cylinder.The saddle, only 775mm from the ground, plays an essential role in the Raptor design as it combines the tank and the rear lamp in one fixture giving continuity and balance to the side view. The futuristic digital analogue instrument system represents another strongly attractive element. It is made with precision (guaranteed by Nippon Seiki quality) and it boasts a special arrangement in tandem with the analogue speed indicator and the digital multifunction tachometer (in 2003 also in miles), which makes it extraordinarily compact and visible. In 2003 Raptor 650 will also come in the new striking orange; particularly suitable to its aggressive style and performance on the road. In short a recognition gained on roads and for its style.

Raptor 650 MY 2004 unlike its sister V-Raptor retains its technical features unchanged: the 650 design aims at dynamics and precision. With a 25 steering pipe rake, the Raptor 650 is a very steady and safe motorbike as well as being acutely responsive in terms of changing direction, thanks to a load distribution (46% front -54% rear) which favours handling and drive traction. Dynamic qualities enhanced by the effectiveness of an oversized Marzocchi fork with stems (43 mm) diameter and by the Sachs shock absorber purposely designed for this model. By 2004 the new suspension will have been reset in order to make it more effective.This is a decision which will improve the driving experience and make the Raptor 650 more responsive to handling and more comfortable, especially on uneven surfaces.

Raptor and V-Raptor 650 share the most advanced propulsion unit in a twin cylinder motorbike of the same category. Characterised by a 90 V structure and fed by two Mikuni BDSR 39 carburettors, it is the only motorbike in this displacement band to be able to boast a timing system made up of a double overhead camshaft with 4 valves per cylinder. Our work on this excellent unit has been targeted to strengthen the torque as well as power.To give it a distinctive character,we have tuned its sound:we made it more vigorous in line with the quality of our three colour models.The new exhaust system 2 in 2, thanks to an appropriate setting of the carburation has given more stamina to the dynamic twin cylinder. Also the updated radiator guarantees performance, reliability and consistency on every occasion, its convex shape contributes to the aesthetic balance of the motorcycle.
