Yamaha RD-engined Cagiva Mito 350


A 62bhp Mito is indeed what Cagiva should be building themselves...Pics: PB mag forum

Found this Cagiva Mito, which supposedly uses a 350cc two-stroke engine, on the PB mag forum. The webpage doesn’t say anything about which two-stroke 350cc engine has been used, but we suppose it would be the Yamaha RD350 engine. The owner says it’s been tuned to make 62bhp.

The Cagiva Mito has also been fitted with the front end from an Aprilia RS250, 320mm front brake disc with six-piston calipers, Ohlins steering damper, NK Racing exhaust system, 34mm Mikuni flatslide carbs and Bridgestone BT090 rubber. Should be fun…!

It is indeed the RD350 engine from the RD350 YPVS line.

The 62HP mentioned indicates a fairly mild tuning, whereas the engine is capable of much more: Using tuning parts from the Yamaha Banshee ATV (same engine) will easily allow 95HP....NOW we are talking!

The engine needs to be shoehorned in, and a couple of special designed aluminum brackets need to be welded on, but results seem to be excellent.

The twostroke day in Assen, Netherlands April 2009 should sport a couple of those beasts.
