New in 2010, the Cagiva Raptor 125 offers an alternative for young motorcycle riders. Where supermotards and supersports have reigned supreme for this generation, the Raptor now makes its appearance.
The Raptor 125 has superb technical specifications and is based almost entirely on the Cagiva Mito SP525. The sports frame, suspension, wheels and brakes make for excellent handling. It is however a relatively environmentally clean twp-stroke engine that makes the biggest difference.
The Planet 125 first saw the light of day in 1997. It was a sort of old-fashioned naked bike: It
was soft in shape, a delicate ride and looked very elegant.
A more aggressive version called the Raptor appeared in 2002 following the 650 and 1000 motorcycle models.
This motorcycle had characteristics that made it more relaxing to ride but, at the same time, allowed the rider to exploit its Cagiva Mito 125 heritage to the full i.e. the frame, suspension and engine.
There is also a new Cagiva MIL (Malfunction Injection Lamp) warning light on the instrument
panel. This lights up in the event of an engine malfunction should the electric pump, carburetor
or ECU suffer a problem.
The carburetor can be re-calibrated by means of the new (needle and jet) setting system to deal with differing uses, physical demands and exhaust configurations thus allowing more even
traction at low revs.
In 2010, the Cagiva Raptor 125 is available in all red and all black color scheme.
