Very nice, Snake! As you can see from the attached pic of my bike, I am kind of partial to red Stelvios!

Cheers,

Bruce

Congrats, Snake....love the bike and Cortech bag too.

Also, do you know if all the recalls/fixes were completed or was that stipulated above?

Regardless, have fun and enjoy.....

I've got 40,000 kms on my 2009 Stelvio. Problems to date have been speed sensor had to be sealed up with silicone , no problems since. Both front fork seals started to leak and had to be replaced after having been pounded out on the Dalton haul road. Bike total weight on that trip was 1025 lbs!, very close to the listed max! and performed perfectly Loose and dirty battery connections. All above repairs were carried out by myself. The Stelvio has been a great bike and it does a lot of things resonably well . Hope and am sure you will enjoy your new bike as much as I have enjoyed mine over the last two years!

38000 Km on my 09. Speed sensor failed.. new one installed with some extra silicone. I get staining around the carc seam but that should be taken care of soon. Had the cam etc. recall done.
Just got back from a 4000Km tour and she was flawless. Cant say that for the tires but the bike worked beautifully.

2009 Stelvio

I purchased my Stelvio from an inmate in Austin Tx and had it shipped to central Fl.He had the cam recall performed and the bike had 2k miles.I just turned 4k and the bike was spot on.I will fit a pair of Pilot Road 3 tires at 5k miles as Michelen offers a 19 inch front Tire on this new model.I really liked the PR 2s on my 1050 Tiger and was pleased the new model will fit the Stelvio.This bike has tons of Torque.Looking forward to riding all the back roads to Daytona in March.2012

Congrats snake. When you're ready to let it run ~40 degrees cooler and loft the front tire in the first three gears, find me as GT-Rx on the GuzziTech.com Forum or ping me direct e-mail; Todd at GuzziTech.com

Had a test ride at the weekend and quite impressed with it.
It hides its' weight very well and has plenty of grunt.
Also very comfortable but ideally needs proper road tyres to help the handling and braking.

Why buy a Dualsport and then fit "road tyres to help the handling and braking"?

That's like taking a wheelbarrow to the supermarket - and then complaining it doesn't fit through the checkout.
If you want a roadbike - buy one; the Stelvio is intended to be ridden on all road surfaces, where you DON"T want pin-sharp brakes that will lock a wheel on loose gravel.
Although I've owned at least one Guzzi every single day since 1978 (currently have 5), I'm hoping the new NTX is a LOT better than the original Stelvio, which felt top-heavy, too vibey and lazy at low revs. I'm very tempted by a return to a Guzzi shaft-drive - though I am spoiled with a brace of Caponords.

I like the riding position and styling of these type of bikes but they're realistically too bulky to ride off road, especially fully kitted up. I would buy the NTX is that's what I wanted.
Really, they are road bikes and don't pretend my limited off-road experience (on motocross bikes) would be good enough for this bulky machine.
The engine has such alot of grunt and mass that it will get you into trouble now and again on such compromised rubber.
Even the dealer has even started fitting Conti Road Attacks as standard now on this version - look forward to giving one of those a blast.

The latest 32 litre tanked NTX has been released in Australia this month. I have been considering all of the current 1000+ adventure bikes for a little while, basically since I sold my Uly. The Guzzi seem to be very competitively priced in Australia. I have already arranged a test ride and suspect this bike will be my next.
