The Cagiva Planet 125's engine is taken from the Cagiva Mito 125, but the two-stroke single has been detuned to provide the Planet with more town-friendly grunt and a little less manic top end. It works a treat. Plenty of acceleration is perfect for filtering through traffic and leaping away from the lights and it’s all delivered in a neat, controllable but fun little package. Derestricted it's capable of showing just over a ton on the clocks.
The brakes on the Planet 125 are phenomenal - it has beasty Brembo calipers that are really over-kill for such a light little bike. Accidental stoppies are on the cards. Since it has the Mito chassis handling is sharp, but thanks to high bars it's much eaiser to chuck about in town.
