Comparative newcomers to the Italian motorcycle scene, the Castiglioni brothers' Cagiva concern established itself in the late 1970s when it purchased the Harley-Davidson-owned Aermacchi factory at Varese. Its first motorcycles were 2-strokes, but in 1985 it purchased long-established Ducati in a move which ensured the latter's survival. Sports bikes continued to be badged as Ducatis in Panigale, while Cagiva made use of Ducati powerplants in Varese. Cagiva also bought engines from Suzuki.

Built in 125, 650 and 1,000cc versions, Cagiva's Raptor series was designed by Miguel Galluzzi, designer of the Ducati Monster. The series was originally named M2 – for Monster 2.

Comparatively unknown in the USA because they were never seriously imported, the v-twin Raptors were, indeed, successful hybrids for the world readily recognizes the quality of Suzuki's powerplants. It helps, perhaps, to think of both the big Raptors as head-on competitive with Ducati's Monster: Monster 600 vs. Raptor 650 and Monster 900 vs. Raptor 1000 although to be fair, it was Ducati's S4 Monster launched in 2001 that could 'put away' the biggest Raptor.

This rare – only a few hundred were made and many fewer imported – 1000 Raptor, complete with its 'grand slam' DOHC, liquid-cooled, 996cc, 90-degree Suzuki v-twin and Italian chassis, will excite any canyon ride or dragstrip blast. And turn heads at the same time. Sold 'as-is' with the recommendation it be put through the usual safety checks before riding.
