2010 Cagiva Mito SP525

Nowadays the Cagiva Mito SP525 is ‘conservative’ both in principle and design. It offers the sheer pleasure of riding a two-stroke, of hearing it scream through the gears like the glorious Cagiva 500, even if it has three cylinders less. When the racing bike won, Italy celebrated, especially when John Kocinsky came home third in the World Championship. It is exactly the recollection of those times when motorbikes were almost untamed beasts and more difficult to dominate than any of today’s machines, that made the name of the little Mito resurface. The SP525 with the 1 of “125” replaced by a 5 in memory of the legendary, much loved Cagiva 500.
