Leafman60, you have done a great job reviewing the 2012 stelvio. I recently bought a 2009 Stelvio and I can say from my experiences that it is a greatly overlooked machine.
Buying my 2009 from Moto International in Seattle. I rode back home to Ft Smith,AR. I rode almost 2200 miles through all types of weather (March 30- April 3) and the bike handled the gusting winds and rain with out a care. I look forward to the day I buy the next Stelvio, a NTX.
Again, Leafman 60, very good write up.
