Hey guys,

Thinking of buying one of these sexy bikes as my learner :)

Anyone rode one? they look like they have all the good gear, lightweight and 2 stroke :O

They look like the biz, i looked at them for a bit.
There are bugger all of them around to actually buy though which makes it a bit difficult.

I was actually looking at buying one of them or a Aprilia RS 125 and both are very similar bikes but I ended up with the Aprilia mainly because I prefer the looks of it.

The Cagiva is a very fun bike to ride and tackles around corners pretty well but in the end of the day, 2 stroke does require a bit more attention and is not your best option if your looking for one as a commuter.

I bought the 2 stroke because it was different and everyone had a CBR250 but when I went around test riding a few cbr's and rs 125s, I found 2 strokes a lot more fun to ride :)

But in the end of the day, I bought a Honda RVF400 as well (stupid impulse buy) and I still prefer to take the Aprilia out :)

That'd probably be because there is considerably less of them to buy.

Yeh i have been looking at the aprilia as well defiinatly the only matching style of bike!

Also spoke to someone who has ridden both and he has said that the aprilia is a bit nicer out of the corners but that they are basicly the same bike.

When it comes down to it ill probably get the mito just to be a bit different :) but i love the chassis and fairings on them! Maybe in all black lol of their signiture red/silver looks good as well.

Deffinatly not looking for a commuter :) this will be a pure weekend bike for hitting some nice twisty roads and finding the sunset... man i cant wait to get on one!

I considered an older mito 125 when I crashed my NSR150, but i fixed it in the end.

The Mito's are cool looking, I prefer the 'duc' style rather than the 525 style, and they do have some cools bits on them, but I would still buy an RS125 if I were getting a 125cc 2 stroke.
