First Look: 2009 Cagiva Mito

Italian race replica returns following Harley-Davidson buyout

The Mito is back!

ACCORDING TO reports in the Italian media, the recent take-over of the MV Agusta group by Harley-Davidson is starting to see cash flowing back into bike production - and the first bike to be given the green light is the Mito SP525.

The little sportsbike remains the liquid-cooled single, putting out around 15bhp with Marzocchi forks and Sachs rear shock. Brembo brakes and the look of a legendary Cagiva C593 (the most gorgeous 500cc GP bike ever built) only serve to make this even more must-have for the young Italian headbanger.

Cost will be around £4,900 - ish.
