    From one source:

    "From the Italian Alps we have heard that a new Moto Guzzi has emerged. According to one of our sources it has been named after Italy's highest mountain pass, the Stelvio. It is believed the bike will be called Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 with the same engine as the new tourer Norge 1200. As the name suggests Moto Guzzi is going after the profitable Adventure bike segment to compete against BMW R1200 GS, KTM Adventure 990 and Buell XB12X Ulysses"

    Having ridden Moto Guzzi for years, I would be surprised if they would be able to compete with KTM 950 or even R1200GS. Those bikes are HEAVY!!

    Fucking A, bubba:

    "From the Italian Alps we have heard that a new Moto Guzzi has emerged. According to one of our sources it has been named after Italy's highest mountain pass, the Stelvio.

As the name suggests Moto Guzzi is going after the profitable Adventure bike segment to compete against BMW R1200 GS, KTM Adventure 990 and Buell XB12X Ulysses. From Aprilia it is expected (apart from what we have reported on earlier) that the Caponord will become more hard-core from 2007 to stand up to the Adventure competition."

    Shamelessly plagiarized from Raptors and Rockets, usually a pretty good source.

    Nice picture of the road. Now how about a picture of the bike!

    I liked the Quota, almost bought one. I think it just needed better wheels and rear end.

    Maybe you didn't notice - the road is paved. I don't call that a good sign for an adventure bike. I could take a scooter up that road.

    Let's see this new Guzzi on some rough rocky track in N Africa.

    Why are bike manufactures obsessed with building pig ugly,overweight,over comlplicated and expensive bikes for the adv market, especially when BMW has that covered with their range of poser bikes. I'd like to see more lightweight 650 to 800cc bikes, singles and twins Light,cheap,basic,easy to modify and with decent fuel economy/tank range.


    Cheers,
    Dave
