How fast is a cagiva mito 125

125 mph .................................


no , i get asked this a lot and this probably aint what you want to hear  , but a mito with probably do around 105 mph maybe a bit more not 100% sure tbh never checked and dont really care ,  pretty similar or maybe a bit more that an aprilia rs125  , ive owned a cagiva mito 125 AND an aprilia rs125 for over 10 years now , most own theres less than a year .

whats more important is reliabilty , if you have a large budget then 40bhp  120mph is possible maybe , but if you are on a tight budget and need to get to work and back then wasting money on trying to make you mito faster in not clever .

cagiva made these bikes pretty fast to begin with in fact spent a fortune getting them pretty much spectacular and fast enough for me anyway ,  by the time you get one for around £1500 used your bike is highly in need of major overhaul forget what the advert said most bikes i see for sale suggest recent rebuild (why rebuild and engine and the sell bike ??)  , its the biggest mistake i see and the reason cagiva mito and aprilia rs125 in fact most 2t bikes  have reliability issue reputations , people buy a used example and then spend £300 on an exhaust another £30 on  an airfilter maybe other stuff of no real use  ,they mostly fail to rejet or upgrade to a 35mm carb , fail to test for piston wear , fail to service the bike or even fit a new spark plug  , this is a recipe for failure .

you just added extra pressure on an already long overdue rebuild engine , and it WILL sieze , it may seize anyway because of lack of maintenance .

be sensible buy your new bike get it fully serviced , have an complete rebuild of the engine done or do it yourself  , have the jetting checked or do it it all yourself as you will learn a lot of stuff you will need to keep your bike running , drive it for a year then if you do have to worry about more speed you know at least you have a sound bike to work on , ive seen hundreds of kids and men fail this way , they spend all there money on rubbish like exhausts , air filters and carbon fibre fluff ,  and when a real problem occurs which it will quickly on a used bike they have to sell there bike as they cannot afford repair .

Ever thought about going on a race track day outing  , heres a great site to learn more about track days , riding faster and safely  , tyre choices and more .
