    Probably one of the better Ducati engines from yesteryear
    My last one had a ducati 900ss engine fitted when it was in SM guise.

    Elefant's are a rare breed, especially while camouflaged.

    Could never understand why Cagiva didn’t make an Elefant with the Tl1000 motor. The navigator looks horrible like a jelly mould. I would still buy a navi if the price was right and aggressive it up a bit.

    That's an easy answer.
    When the grand canyon /navigator came allong the market for "racing" machines were gone, everybody wanted heavy touring machines.
    After Cagiva sold Ducati they could'nt get engines any more, so they turned to Suzuki (gran canyon-Ducati/Navigator-Tl1000)
    But who buy an Italian bike with a jap engine?
    (Fantastic engine though, i had a Cagiva V-Raptor back in the day)
    Anyhow, Cagiva got in some serious financial problems and went dorment, all that is left is MV Agusta, and as they allso have financial problems i suppose we never see a true succesor of the mighty Elefant ever again ☹️

    Agreed Glyn .
    Mine was really comfy for all day riding.
    But the front end was too soft for fast paced stuff . Splitting the tank to change filters was a real pain too. 😲.
    Still I had some great times draining the local petrol pumps !

    It was a weird bike, you either loved it or hated it, much like the old GS.Totally shocked !!-fb_img_1581542972161.jpgTotally shocked !!-fb_img_1581542966575.jpg
