So I bought a new Two Stroke on the weekend, add to the collection and what not.
This is a Cagiva Raptor, effectively it's a Cagiva Mito but in a Streetfighter chassis.
It's got Brembo Brakes (front and rear), marzocchi forks and a TYGA full system.
It's not got the original barrel, missed out on an auction for that last night. The front mud guard needs attention.
Otherwise it's all complete and together. I haven't ridden it yet, it's got no MOT/Tax. I probably won't use it this year, but all in good time.
Always fancied one of these to go with my 900 Monster, and also a SuperCity too!
How much was it dare I ask?
@nottsbiker I only paid £1000 for it, which is a steal really. Pipe alone is £400 and I was there when they bought it.
It needs a little bit of TLC but it's generally complete.
Bargain - paid the same for my TDR125 and that fell apart when I got it home
Should be a fun ride when the sun comes out
@nottsbiker Oh this is a lovely machine. Such high spec for the money. And it's good to go. Just needs an MOT. But no dramas really. I just have spent a lot of money this winter on my DTR so will probably use this next year.
Yes thats why I have stuck with the Belgarda due to some of the parts that are fitted and that it is very rare in the UK and will not lose any money in the longer term. Ideally I want a 200R motor for it but they are super-rare and therefore expensive. I have the 200WR as well thats a rolling resto / in-use for my sins
@calum nice one Calum, good price too. Always satisfying to get a bargain, quality looks too, not that I am jealous or anything
@calum Nice ride man. Looks good and powerful. Wish I could afford to build my own collection too. Have a safe drive!
@donaldmendez It's faster than my DTR (bear in mind that's tuned) and it's a tad slower than my RS (bear in mind that it had the powervalve shut).
So it goes well. More importantly, it's comfortable and rides well -)
I would recommend.

She’s pretty, I’m actually quite a fan of them to be honest. Mito’s are stunning and all but fair from comfy. Admittedly, there’s a reason why but imagine that power plant in a very comfy, sleek and modern looking naked. Boom, here’s your answer. I’m quite jealous I could imagine on a summers day without any plans this being a cracking little bike to take out for a blast.
@stevie-wonder I would say the Mito is more comfy than the RS.
The way the panels are inline with the frame, as opposed to on my RS your knees rest on the making it feel rather cramped.
But yeah this bike is a hoon.
