Share information about Cagiva with others
The Italian grand Cagiva has produced som nice bikes. The bikes where popular in the mid 70's and even made it to the top in some major championships. Pekka Vehkonen (Finland) won the 1985 125GP championship and earned a second place in the 1987, 1988 and 1989 250GP championships. Duchman Dave Strijbos won the 1986 125cc GP championship and the Italians Corrado Maddii and Massimo Contini made some third places in the final standings during that period.
The factory started in 1950. Cagiva manufactured motocross and enduro bikes under their own name until 1990. The purchase of the Swedish Husqvarna factory a few years earlier was then merged with the Cagivas producing the bikes under the name Husqvarna. The WMX models during the 80's is probably the most famous Cagiva bikes. The line consisted of 125cc, 250cc and 500cc models. The bikes had both good and bad sides. Oddly enough the smaller bikes appeared to be somewhat better than the open classer. The Russian teams rode on Cavivas for a while with tons of mechanical problems. The 500cc WMX where also famous for their ugly powerband. The bikes are nice though and will most likely attract collectors within a few years.
