Update 4.7.2012: Originally listed in September 2011, I believe this to be the same bike that is currently listed on eBay. Very close mileage and still in New Hampshire. Looks like the original windshield has been refitted. Links updated. -dc
Location: Chichester, New Hampshire
Price: Auction with reserve
Want a super cool two-stroke that you don't see everyday? Well, I have it for you. Here is a Cagiva Aletta Oro S2 125 two stroke. We all know that two strokes are not common in the U.S. market and certainly Cagiva's are not common either. So here's an opportunity to have what I'm guessing would be a really fun bike to ride or something to fill a hole in your collection. Or both.
The single cylinder 125 cc pumps out a not so staggering 23 hp at 9,100 rpm. So this is clearly not a speed demon. But it's also a lightweight 271 lbs. So it could be a blast for grabbing some corners.
Here's some more pics (with many more in the auction)-
Here's the breakdown from the seller-
VERY VERY RARE 1986 CAGIVA S2 125 2 STROKE ROAD RACE BIKE.. WELL IM THINNING DOWN ON MY BIKES, AND HERE IS A VERY HARD TO FIND BIKE..

WITH THAT BEING SAID PLEASE REVIEW MY PICTURES AND IF YOU HAVE ANY FUTURE QUESTIONS PLEASE EMAIL A $250.00 IS DUE WITHIN 24 HOURS FROM ENDING AND MUST BE PAID IN FULL WITHIN 3 DAYS FROM ENDING.... PLEASE CONTACT ME ABOUT MAKING FINAL PAYMENT... BIKE IS SOLD WITH A BILL OF SALE ONLY,, N.H. DOES NOT TITLE VEHICLES OVER 15 YEARS OLD..BUYER IS TO ARRANGE THERE OWN SHIPPING....
The seller highlights the bike needs work and that there has also been some modification, the cut down windshield being notable. The seller also notes that these parts may be found on Ebay. The other thing significant thing is the fact that it comes only with a bill of sale. The bike is not currently titled, so that may present some problems.
All that being said, the mileage is low and this is still a unique machine that could be an awesome addition to any garage and a blast on curvy roads. Or you can just freak out other sportbike people. Not many of these around, so if you want to take a shot at this one, make the jump!
