This spy picture has just emerged revealing the first significant updates to the Cagiva Mito 125 in 13 years.

The revamped motorcycle is due to be officially unveiled for the first time at the Milan motorcycle show in less than two weeks time, but this picture from an MV convention reveals the two-stroke learner motorcycle has been given a complete restyle.

The seat and fairing are shaped to mimic Cagiva’s C594 500GP machine from the 1990’s, replacing the Ducati 916-alike shape seen on every Mito since 1994.

The swoopy fairing houses two wide-eyed headlights and a dummy intake shaped just like the C594’s carbon intake ducts, and the slim tail piece tapers to a point.

The passenger seat is colour-matched to the bodywork to give the appearance of a single race-seat.

The motorcycle’s chassis appears identical to the outgoing model in this image, but it remains to be seen whether the bike is to get a new four-stroke engine to pass emissions laws, or whether Cagiva has managed to get the current motorcycle’s 30bhp two-stroke engine through emissions laws.

Keep an eye on MCN, out every Wednesday for in depth analysis of all the new motorcycles from the Milan Show, and keep coming back to www.motorcyclenews.com for breaking new motorcycles.
