Raptor 650 Reader Feedback

There were a few notable machines left out of our Value Bike Shootout. Please accept our apologies for this lack of foresight. Notably, the Cagiva Raptor 650 was omitted because, um, Danielle did it, actually. Blame her.

In our defense, and hers, some of the bikes we wanted to include are just too difficult to procure in the States. Even through various time-honored tactics (begging, whining, pleading, all leading to bribery) we couldn't make a Cagiva appear at our doorstep...

Thankfully for us, we have numerous staff contributors who can pick up the slack where we left off. Namely, Yossef, who resides in Israel, was able to ship himsolf off to the Cagiva factory in Italy for a few days to sample this very cool, Suzuki-powered creation...

Take a look at the story and let us know what you think of this bike.
