Cagiva's Mito SP525

Harley-Davidson now owns the MV Agusta Group and its MV Agusta and Cagiva brands, but exactly what will become of each brand? And, what does Cagiva even produce?

Cagiva's current offerings include only two two-stroke 125cc models, the Raptor naked bike and the Mito SP525 supersport.

The Mito SP525, Cagiva's newest offering, was introduced at the EICMA show in Milan last November. A month later the company announced it was preparing to send the model to its European dealer network.

At the time, Cagiva said it designed the Mito SP525 to keep costs under control and sales prices competitive while keeping all the advantages that two-stroke engines can offer: lightness, performance and low running costs.

The company also said it hoped the SP525 would help change what the words "two-stroke" imply in the modern marketplace — the Mito's powerplant was designed with a new integrated Electronic Carburetion System (developed in collaboration with Dell'Orto) that administers allows the bike to conform with Euro 3 standards.
