Motorcycle insurance bargains: Cagiva Mito SP525

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Cagiva Mito SP525.                 

Insurance group: 7
Engine: 125cc LC single two-stroke. Six gears
Power: 14.7bhp (claimed 33bhp derestricted)
Top speed: 103mph
Weight: 129kg                 

Probably the most beautiful novice 125cc bike money can buy – yes, it even outclasses Yamaha’s YZF-R125 and biggest competitor Aprilia RS125. The SP525 is essentially the long-running two-stroke Cagiva Mito 125 brought up to date in every area and then dressed in bodywork to honour John Koscinski’s 500GP efforts onboard the Cagiva V594 circa 1994. Plus it's only group 7 to insure.                 

In unrestricted form the engine is unstressed; derestricted will see the return of explosive two-stroke performance. The SP525’s engine has undergone a revamp to keep it functional within the boundaries of tightening emissions regulations. Two catalysers in the exhaust, an electronic two-stroke oil pump and ECU controlled carb are part of the clean-running process

The Cagiva Mito SP525 is nothing but pure sports focussed. Compact, quick steering, light, with firework-like performance in full-power form (14.5bhp restricted). Think 125cc MotoGP machinery and you’ll be very, very close to how the Cagiva Mito SP525 behaves. But it is a road bike, for this reason the bike is also stable and the suspension is road biased (not hard, not soft, just suited to deal with road riding).
