Used Motorcycles: Cagiva Mito buyers guide

By MCN -

 17 April 2009 10:50

Price new: £3,999
Engine: l/c two-stroke single, 124cc
Power: 31bhp (derestricted)
Top speed: 101mph
Weight: 129kg 

The Cagiva Mito is pretty equal with the Aprilia RS125 when it comes to power and performance, but the ace up it's sleeve is it's mini Ducati 916 styling.  

The Cagiva Mito's handling is razor sharp, it pretty much goes where you think and the limit is the road and rider. In the right hands the Mito is an elbow-down scratcher and the focused riding position reflects this. The steering lock is poor too, so it's not the best bike to take your test on.

If you want Mito fun with a bit more practicality, consider the gorgeous naked version, the Cagiva Planet.

Most Cagiva Mito's will have been owned and thrashed by teenagers, so buy with caution. Make sure you get a full service history and that the bike has been run on quality 2-stroke oil. Build quality and electrics aren't up to much, so make sure you check up close and flick all the switches.
