Have you seen the Cagiva Mito?
It is the bike Ducauti styled the 916 after.
Yes that is right the Mito came first. (apparently I am talking out my ass.. see below)
Sweet little ride.

Nice stash Skippy! I am envious.
But you know you are still missing one, right??

The Mito may have come out in 1991, but it didn't look like a 916 until 1995 with the Mito Evoluzione. The 916 first hit in late 93.

The Mito had it's bodywork retrofitted in '95 because everyone wanted a 916 in '95 (the year the 916 won WSBK) and they were way too expensive (plus, 16 year-olds could not legally ride a 916...but they could ride the 125cc Mito).

So, nice try, but the 916 was not designed to copy the Mito.

This is what the Mito looked like in 94:

I am going to hijack this thread a little:
I am considering getting a friend's RGV250 Wolf as a first bike. I am not a complete newb, I just don't have much street experience but a fair amount of time doing dirt and supermoto. I am mainly concerned about reliability of an older two stoke (am I going to be wrenching every night?) and the off-on powerband in the city.

Thanks for any and all advice,
Jake

AHHH thats BAD ASS DUDE.
I have always wanted a RG500 been lookin too. The NS400s kinda fell into my lap. The first NS400R was basically a gift.
I paid $1,500 for it including $2,750.00 in new OEM honda parts. Everything but the upper and left tail piece(back ordered).

I would love a RG500 but I do not have $10K to squirt off on one.
I wanna RZ500 and a 350 too.
I am a little nuts about 2 strokes!!

I stand corrected on the mito. I was mis informed at Monroe motors when I was looking at one in 2000. I bought a ZX12R instead.
