Cagiva Mito had gone through some technical innovations through the years. First launched in the year 1991 with 125 bikes, it underwent redesign but eventually the production was discontinued in 1997. After this, the company launched the production of next generations, and latest models have come out in naked and full-size models. The rivals of the bike were Aprilia’s versions, similar in the type of the engine.
The power source of Cagiva Mito is two-stroke 7.6 cubic inch engine. Its capacity is able to comprise 12.5 liters of fuel. Other versions of the famous bike were equipped with fuel-injected four-stroke single, able to produce 60 horsepower. The motorbike is difficult to adjust, but it copes well with twisty roads. The pilot won’t be able to ride at a long distance, as the seats are too thin and hard. On the other hand, the piloting brings joy while the steering is sharp and sensitive. The transmission is easy to tackle and the breaks respond to any urgent need to stop.
The wheelbase is 1375 mm with 760 mm height of the seats. The overall length is 1980 mm. The representatives of later generations are made 4 kg heavier than the original versions due to the forged alloy wheels, not available in the previous models. The standard weight of the models, produced after the year 1991 is about 130 kg.
First generations came out in grey color of lower panels and solid colors of the tail. Latest models also boast matte black or red colors of the body shell. Suspension was has been tuned through the years to make the motorbike more adjustable for any type of road. At the front side there are two twin-headlights and the low-level lights.
To pass the regulations of safety and ecology, in the lineup there appeared electronic fuel-air ignition system. The new system appeared in SP525 after the year 2007. So the motorbike meets the standards and responds to the demand of the eco-friendly world.
The overall impression of Cagiva Mito models is similar to those of Ducati’s. So the motorbike is very powerful and rather stylish. Safety regulations and the peculiarities of handling make the bike a passion and desire for those who have at least the learner’s license, though for some the price may be a bit spicy.
