Cagiva Cyclops 250 Small-Displacement Bike Prototype

With brands renowned for their appetite for huge bikes re-working their plans and starting working on small-displacement motorcycles, here's a prototype which could mean that Cagiva is planning the same move: the Cyclops 250.

Created by student Bruno Boarato, the Cyclops 250 prototype could be a good start for freshening up: the Castiglioni brand, rather shadowed during the last years by other manufacturers, could try and use such a bike to gain some bigger share in the ever-increasing quarter-liter segment.

As far as these sketches show, such a bike could do pretty well in the busy European urban areas. With a seat created for two-up riding and maybe a 6-speed gearbox to make it highway-efficient, such a 249cc (or similar) machine could mean smaller fuel expenses, and we'd all like that.

Even if the sketches leave little room for handy accessories, such as a top case or even side cases, we're positive Cagiva will not overlook this matter. As for the engine, some 30 HP and a generous tank allowing the rider to cover great distances between refueling stops would be really neat.

And by all means, a shorter exhaust than what we saw in these drawings: that one is ridiculously huge!
