It still works for me...if only Guzzi would put it into production...
Yup,I love Guzzis too...but their management has always seemly had a 'head up their A$$' attitude...

Once my gf sees one of these in my garage, she'll be able to figure out my priorities.

I love ugly motorcycles, and I really love this one

It is better looking than a lot of other Adventure bikes (my favorite has actually always been the GS looks as it is a very quirky ugly)

Bluhduh Go for it!

I think the Stelvio would look good next to my '69 Guzzi Ambassador. Besides, i need to try something different than the last 5 BMWs i've had and we have a new Moto Guzzi dealer in central PA. I'm slowly talking myself into this but am too worried that it will be waaay overpriced like most Guzzis are.

Guzzi owners

Hey Vecchio Lupo boy are you right Guzzi owners arent right in the head or as they say in the South He aint right!! One time I was at the Ducati Dealer here in Tucson as I was waiting for my Cagiva Gran Canyon to be diagnosed and a guy rides up in a California special checkin on his sport 1100 being repaired. He has slippers on with pajama bottoms and a leather jacket with a helmet. His hair was disheveled and he looked like something out of a carnival. When he left I had to laugh out loud and Steve the owner asked me what was so funny and I cracked a litlle joke. The bottom line is you guys aint right. Talk about function over form you guys arent right.

Moto Guzzi STELVIO on the road...

This video was taken in Italy, it's clearly a Stelvio (even if it's not the final version) and they are hummering it on the road..!!

If they are 'hammering it'....they got overtaken by a 4WD while they were flat out......heh heh

And it`s apparently so uncomfy the rider was standing on the pegs the minute he was in a slow urban environment......


I still quite like the idea of one though......

I'd take the 850 2 valve Stelvio. This is effectively what I have been waiting for, a semi-offroad tourer with a shaft drive and a v-twin motor. (lot's of reasons and history for these requirements)

Fine looking bike, but I could take that road on my CT-90.
