Talking to the dealer today, and this may have been mentioned before, maybe not.
The NTX is the only Stelvio for the U.S. in 2012, and available in the matte black or burnt orange. He had told me that before but it was a while back and my memory was fuzzy on it.

I'd seen mention of other markets getting a matte black NTX or a standard in burnt orange.


So....the waiting should only last another month or so

How about throwing the old Moto Guzzi factory a bone and buying a new one?

I've an idea these new models might sell okay. That big tank is an attractive feature among today's offerings. And the rest.

Buyers for two-year used bikes help the factory too. A strong market for used stuff helps cut the risk for new purchasers. Who will be mainly brand-switchers, if Guzzi is to win market share.

I haven't read a bad review yet on the '12 NTX. Goes head to head with anything out there.

No, I will let one of the more impulsive fellows take that depreciation hit. Meanwhile, there is nothing wrong with my Strom, and the thousands saved will go to work for me and for the economy as I invest it.

......or put another way:

Your thriftiness and inability to part with your money means a factory in Mandello del Lario sell one less bike. At some point, selling fewer bikes becomes a tipping point for the company which will either shed workers, require another costly financial bailout, or worse, close down altogether....!!

Multiply this scenario across several hundred Italian companies, and you add to Italy's spiraling three-trillion euro debt crisis. With Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain all needing significant bailout by the euro-zone, the remaining strongholds of Germany, France and the UK simply don't have the ability to save Italy, so the entire euro-zone is dragged into financial depression....the global Impact of which the decimated US treasury can't deal with ...and on it goes....

- and all because you don't want to spend money on a new bike.......

Question

hello everyone! my 08 stelvio goes still around but I faced a problem with an accesory.
I had installed heated grips from OXFORD.A specific model had big failure(no water proof) so I had also a baterry problem. I just disconnect the grips and charge the battery and everything is normal now.
I want to ask if anyone installed other than the guzzi's heated grips through the menu, and how can I do it. Otherwise I am thinking to have onother water proof button for the grips I have on.

thank you

Ps. sorry for my english

I have the Oxford grips as well and they have been fine. I have them wired into the stock (built in) controller.

Ah ha - good news - I had worried about possible extra load damaging the dash - obviously not. Thanks for that
