The Cagiva Gran Canyon is a unique and rare (in America) Adventure Touring bike. Great on-road handling and very good on forest trails and dirt roads. This bike has seen only light duty off road use and the rims & body work are in very good original condition. I am the third owner and have owned it since 2011 and it's time for another owner to enjoy it as I've moved on to another two wheeled toy. There is a great support group for Gran Canyons on Yahoo and parts and technical help are readily available should you need it. It has a 904cc Ducati air cooled motor, speed transmission, .2 gallon gas tank, eight is 515 lbs wet. Comes with a locking Krauser top case, wo keys, agiva tool kit, riginal Owners Manual, ome maintenance receipts. The bike has given me 6 years of trouble free riding and I would not hesitate to ride anywhere, ny distance. Tires were replaced in 2015 and have less than 500 miles on them.
Now to fully disclose any and all defects or issues.
1.Small scuff on right top fairing near windscreen where hand guard has contacted the fairing.
2.Right side plastic frame cover just above the foot peg is cracked (pictured).
3.Various small stone chips in the front fairing and front of tanks (largest on shown in the picture). Range in size of a pin point to a pin head, o big ones.
4.The right front strut has a repair that has been made to it (pictured). It was this way when I bought it and there have been no leaks.
5. There is one issue that has not been sorted out, nd it was present when I purchased it. When stopped at idle on a hot day, ccasionally the bike will spit/miss and then return to a normal idle. A few times the miss has persisted while accelerating and a restart of the engine is required to clear it up. I've not had to stop, ust pulled in the clutch and hit the starter to refire. I have had it to two shops trying to figure this out and they failed to find any problems as it rarely occurs and they could not reproduce it. Not a big deal as I have ridden 12,000 miles around town and on trips and it has happened only a hand full of times. I thought it was vapor lock so I insulated the fuel lines near the engine, ut that didn't solve it.
Service items, elts were replaced in 2010 (about 12,000 mi ago), il has been changed regularly (3K) since I've owned it, o oil or gas leaks, hain and sprockets are in good condition, ew tires, o dents or dings in rims, ody work in good condition.
