    1.welcome to the forum, 2. Any pics of the bike? 3. 1000 miles? Have to say that is a shame to not have ridden the bike. How come you are selling?

    Thanks. The bike is not mine, its my friends. He is a pilot and has a large collection of cars and bikes (lucky sod)... his wife has told him some toys have to go... gutted!! I'm not sure I want to buy it myself, but said i'd help him sell it? I can take some photos, but haven't got any I can load now! Any idea what shes worth??? He doen't want loads of money for it, just wants it to go to a good home and be USED!!

    I have no idea what it's worth. My guess is it al comes down to how much one is willing to pay for such a collector's item.
    Please do post pics

    What someone is willing to pay.

    It's not worth as much as he may think.

    I've seen a few Mille SPs advertised for sale here on aprilia forum over the years. The owners usually ask what IMO is crazy money, north of $10k, and they never sell.

    An excellent condition low mileage 2000 Mille R is likely worth around $4,000 max.

    I think the SP is no doubt cool and certainly rare, but there isn't a demand for them. They don't have the recognition of an R7 or RC30/45. I think Micah said without the race catalog parts, they actually make less power than a Rotax head engine.

    I'd start out asking $10k. But if he wants it sold in a reasonable amount of time, he'll probably need to accept considerably less. The used bike market is in the pits. In the USA, a bike like that auctioned on ebay might go for as high as $7k, but even that is likely unrealistically high. His best bet is to find a wealthy collector who will appreciate the low miles and limited production.

    I think this is about right on, for the North American Market. The values could be a little low, but not more than 15-20% off.

    The Mille had a deceptively strong following in the UK in the early 2000's so there may be stronger market for them there, but I can't accurately assess this from here in Texas, of course.

    Good luck with the sale, please post pictures if able.

    If resizing is a problem, email them to me and I will host them here.
