In the spring of 1978 the Elephant, lucky symbol Giovanni Castiglioni chose for CAGIVA shortly after the second world war, enters the motorbike world superimposed on the N.1 with the Italian colours inherited from the Aermacchi-HD.
The Elephant takes all the attention in the new logo removing the Italian colours.
1987 / 1994
A new version is introduced highlighting the racing activities by putting a chequered flag on the Elephant's back to differentiate the Racing Division from the normal production.
The Crimson centre designs a new logo based on the Elephant to better match the new models like Raptor, V-Raptor and Navigator.
