I can tell you what I know of this Mille GT.
Did you install the Breva mirrors? What did you think of them?I'm considering buying a pair for my Mille.
..... they stuck out much wider (several inches) than the stock mirrors. Could see around my shoulders with the new mirrors.
I sold my red '89 Mille a couple of months ago for $4,500 - a fair price I guess, but what a lot of bike for the money - essentially an updated T, T3, T5 etc. Think of the price of a new Royal Enfield costs and what it would take to get a new SR400 - neither of them as good as most used Guzzis. I hope the seller of this black one does even better than I did. The Mille's are wonderful machines with a lot of soul - like all Guzzis have.
I think you did well at $4500 on a Red Mille. I do not see this one going to $4500. It's a nice looking Tonti and looks very clean but prove me wrong. My guess is reserve is $4000 and he'll be lucky to get it. I do not see Mille's as a rare bike.
Since this thread has several current &/or former Mille GT owners, does anybody know how many of these bikes were imported to the US? What years? I've seen 89s & 90s listed occasionally, but I don't remember ever seeing a 92....I'm the 7th owner of mine & inherited a pretty complete owner & service history, but I'm trying to fill in the last few gaps.I really like mine. It doesn't handle as well as my Norton or have as much guts, but it is still a lot of fun to ride, has minor mechanical & electrical gremlins that keep you alert (just like the Norton), & gets as much interest as the Norton at gas stops, etc. One nice thing is that I don't get nearly as many people coming up & saying "I used to own one of these..." when I'm riding the Mille
Although all-red Mille's are very distinct bikes that I don't see very often. I saw a perfect all-red (frame too) Mille at the West Virginia rally a few years back that I'd give $4500 for if it showed up in person ....Lannis

Only 200 in 89-90 in US. I do not believe they imported it in 91. Europe had Mille from 87-92. In 93 along came the Strada with bigger fork tubes and mid range valves.
Thanks for the info. From this forum, it seems to me that probably at least 25% of them are still on the road.
Thanks for the info. From this forum, it seems to me that probably at least 25% of them are still on the road. Not too bad for a bike that was pretty consistently panned by the biker mag "experts" (underpowered, poor attempt at a retro look, an amalgamation of leftover parts from other models, etc.), apparently had a fair amount of issues when new (comments by Daleroso, & my bike's service records showing the bike wasn't really sorted out until about the 20K mile mark), & apparently was a slow seller when new.Some other trivia that others may or may not know - I have a sales brochure showing 350cc & 650cc models (at least nominally that size) with exactly the same styling. Apparently MG thought North Americans would like the black model best because that was the only color shown. My parts manual lists black, "GT red", and blue-green as the available colors, but of course doesn't indicate when & where each was available.
Here is a blue green model 1991 again it is a Euro bike. By the way the post 1990 models were mid valves and listed at 71 HP
so who got it?
Nobody He has it listed on his webpage for a cool $5500. Never will get it. Guy is dreaming and I own a Mille. This one ought to go in the overpriced used bike thread. Its a sweet ride but no way $5500. Notice how it got pulled cause the interest dropped after the first go around. http://www.nationalpowersports.net/itemDetail.aspx?itemID=19375#gAnchor
With a "Rat Fink" sticker on the side car....pretty cool!
