An engine design that originated in the late 1940s, Moto Guzzi's venerable 90-degree v-twin is still around today powering the latest generation of superbikes from Mandello del Lario. The first motorcycle to use Guzzi's v-twin appeared in the late 1960s in the form of the 703cc V7, and this remarkable engine would prove exceptionally versatile, being enlarged beyond 1,000cc and powering machines of all kinds ranging from the super-sports Le Mans to the automatic transmission Convert tourer. Introduced in 1987, the retro-styled Mille GT, with its wire-spoked wheels and lack of a fairing, recalled the looks of the first of this long-running series of tourers – the 850T – that had debuted back in 1974. The Mille GT engine used smaller valves than the more sporting versions and produced its maximum of 67bhp at 6,700rpm, which was good enough for a top speed of around 120mph. Noteworthy features included improved switchgear from the Le Mans V superbike and Guzzi's traditional integrated braking system.

This Mille GT has covered circa 23,000 miles from new and is described by the private vendor as in generally excellent condition, benefiting from a new headlight and recent servicing of the engine and electrics. The machine is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to 30th June 2012 and Swansea V5 document.
