Italian Teens Commuter Or U.S. Exotica? Titled 1995 Cagiva Mito

Italian Teens Commuter Or U.S. Exotica? Titled 1995 Cagiva Mito

It is kind of funny how something can be very ordinary in one place an exotic in another.  These little Mitos, in my opinion, are classic bikes.  Their design/look is timeless much like, say a Ducati 916.  Could it be because the same pen designed them?  Maybe but park this next to an Aprilia RS125 and tell me which is the newer bike.  What makes this impressive is that the Mito is considered a beginners bike and they usually look like, well:  beginners bikes.  Only the tiny exhaust and single disc give away its' lack of cc's.

You may recognize this garage, as it has been producing some extremely nice grey bikes for sale lately.  Lucky for us the seller has decided to thin out his herd.  Lets go down the checklist for the bike.  Title: check.  Low miles: check.  Extremely clean: check.  There really isn't a whole lot to say.  If you've been waiting for a Mito to come up for sale here it is.  It has everything you could ask for.

Can you see the 916 now?  This one is just smaller and smokes.  I'd love to see some comments from owners about these bikes.  Do they motivate pretty good?  I think back to my RM125 dirt bike and remember that thing was pretty damn strong.  Did Cagiva plug it up with restrictions and if so, are they easy to remove?  What is the fit and finish like on a Cagiva as I've never seen one in person.

I think this is one of those bikes that if you got it in your garage you'd find yourself riding more than you thought you would.  I'd take in a heart beat if my wallet would only cooperate.  This one is another Ebay bike and it looks like it has attracted a few bidders although the price is still well below what I think the seller would let it go for.  .

Since I compared the two, here are the RS125 and the Mito together. In all honesty, they are both sharp looking bikes.

1993 Cagiva Mito In North Carolina

1993 Cagiva Mito In North Carolina

In my opinion, the Mito is one of those bikes that just has classic lines.  I actually favor the styling of the older model Mito's like this one.  Nothing wrong with the Cagiva red either.  This one has a few issues but might be had for a decent price.  The seller is asking $2000 or best offer for the little red beast.  No mention on title status.

From the ad:

1993 Italian race bike Cagiva Mito 125cc 2 stroke. I have not had it run in years brought it with me from Italy needs some work but is in good condition. Think the stator is bad and missing the intake manifold, was lost while at a shop and never got it back before i moved to the US.

Help keep two storkes alive, give the man a call.  You can find his number here.

(1991) Yamaha TZR250 & 2001 Cagiva Mito Evo II

Located in Torrance, California is a Yamaha TZR250 and 2001 Cagiva Mito.  These bikes are available from the same dealer of a GSX-R400R we posted earlier.  The TZR250 has 3,400km, a clean California Title, SP swingarm, fully adjustable suspension, Ohlins Damper and DID ERV2 chain.  The Cagiva Mito is unfortunately untitled but has only 65km.  These ads appear to be over a year old but they may still be available.  See these bikes on Moto-Tec's website here.

Cagiva Mito Evo 1

Located in Oakland, California is a Cagiva Mito.  This bike isn't registered nor titled but has been available for quite some time--hence why I decided to post it.  The seller doesn't state much about the specific bike for sale but from the photos it looks to have some cosmetic damage while looking to be overall very original and in okay condition.  The asking price of $4,200 seems to be high especially compared to the California Titled 2000 Evo II I posted previously.  If you'd like to make an offer, see the Craigslist ad here.

Private Collection in New Jersey

I haven't see this website before but, Motorcycles For Sale Classic, is apparently a broker for a collection of motorcycles out of New Jersey.  It looks to have been recently updated but has some obvious errors--make sure to contact the seller by phone to confirm anything on their site.  Anyhow, these are some of the bikes that are still available that I found interesting:

  • 1977 MV Agusta 850SS with 1,791 original miles.
  • 1977 Ducati 900SS with 2,500 original miles.
  • 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 Limited Edition with 2,358 original miles (Vance & Hines exhaust fitted).
  • 1985 Suzuki RG500 with 385 original miles.
  • Yamaha TZR250 with 22,245 miles.
  • 1984 Yamaha RD500 with 31,600 miles.
  • A second Yamaha RD500 with less miles.
  • Aprilia RS250 with 610 original miles.
  • 1995 Cagiva Mito.

These aren't all the bikes listed on the site--and more appear in the background of photos--but again, I would caution anyone against acting too quickly.  The website listed features errors and older dates but, I haven't seen these photos featured anywhere else and they all look to be correct and from the same location.  Titles and registration isn't mentioned and only a few bikes have asking prices.  Regardless, take a look at the site as it may be an undiscovered mine!
