Not a big difference you say,or you sick or what

I can tell you from my own experience that the difference is biggy

The bike is totally different, the only comparrison is that they are both 2 strokers

The only thing I can say more is,go drive one and you are sold for ever

Nofearer, I've owned a Mito Evo2 now for almost 2 years and done around 30,000 km's in that time but bought an Rs250 recently to use over the summer months and the difference is mainly in the power, well, especially in the power!!

The Mito actually feels torquier at lower revs and certainly more usable, but Rs250's arn't supposed to be usable they're supposed to be fun arn't they?! :D but once the power kicks in it basically has twice the power and you <em>can</em> feel it, despite all the tensing and bracing I could do I still slid all the way back on the seat on my first few outings on the Aprilia. They certainly put a huge smile on your face when the power comes in. Getting back on the Mito after the Rs it feels as though it's still restricted and I found myself turning the ignition off to reset the powervalve to see if that was the problem, then saw I was at 10,000 rpm's realised it was the drop in engine sizes I'd just made.

Handling wise they're both probably similar due to sitting positions (I have the older model so this maybe why) but personally I prefer the Mito as I think it's the best handling bike I've ever rode, and that's even considering I have an RGV track bike with race rubber and my Rs250 also has race rubber on too. But it will still out handle pretty much every other bike on the road.

Great fun and you won't regret getting one, the best bike to move upto after the Mito.
