Oh, yeah! I remember the Muzzy Raptor well... reading about it in Sport Rider back in the day. What a machine! Funny how you read it now and think, "Eh, 18K ain't that expensive!" Of course, back then I had NO money for anything other than an ol' FZR 600, so of course, anything that spoke of 150+ RWHP was crazy!

A while back, when ZX-12R's were the Kawi bike to have (I had a 2000), I browsed Muzzy's website and they mentioned doing a Raptor based on the 12R! That would have been something to see! But, it appears that it never materialized... not enough consumer interest apparently.

So, I guess we'll have to just settle with keeping the 10Rs.. not a bad alternative!

Indeed a nice machine, had the looks and go fast goodies to make it unique thats for sure.

Yep interesting flash from the past. Not worth that much to enthusiasts. Collectors maybe that have an empty "Muzzy" spot in their collection. Find yourself a nice 750 and have some fun building a stock motor "Raptor Replica" that you can ride and enjoy without draining the bank.

Go to the PB forum, there's a long thread full of his pics in there.

Cheers,
