WOW, well braced meaty forks, dual lights, spoked wheels, confort looking seat, large looking tank, seems like good wind protection, 110 horses, beautiful Italian styling and its a GUZZI.
Its a winner, bring it my money is waiting.

headlights are old school ugly. With a poor service network in the USA, this bike will struggle to get to market.

Since when is old school ugly, check out the MGNOC.COM network and compare to suzuki, bmw or any other. Germany is motoguzzi no.1 market for a reason, they understand good enginnering.

Looks alot like the new Tiger from some angles. I also question the dealer support, but I hope Guzzi does well in the US.

Same as any GS, no?

At least it's not as ugly as a 12GS~ Gotta fix those bug eyes- maybe a larger screen would dull them down a little.... And I'm sure they'll have a good bag option- Guzzi understands the market for this type of mount.

Aprilia?? Have you seen a CapoNord or a Futura with Hardbags?? Well before the Multistrada Aprilia had those 2 models.
Have you seen how well integrated is Aprilia luggage on those 2 models??

I guess you are confusing the CapoNord; the BMW R12GS and Tiger are the the ones with the indented exhaust side bags.

Stelvio

Wasn't sure which category to start this thread in so I'm taking a chance and placing it here. Please move it to another location if there is one better suited to this sort of topic. Thanks.

Has anyone else seen the article on the Stelvio and what do you think?

I like it (but then I think the 12GS looks good). I've always like Guzzis
although I've never owned one.

I like it too but then I've always like Guzzis especially the sound. Might only be me but I think it shares some similar lines with the GS. Hope it does well.
