Same as any GS, no?
I like the design off the adjustable seat height.
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.
Anyone have an idea on weight, price (USD), etc. that is anticipated?
I fully anticipate heavy and expensive (USD), next...................?
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.
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.
Stelvio goes to Beasts..
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.
Thanks for moving it to the correct place.
I see it's going to be available in both 850 and 1200 4 valve. I'll take the 850 thanks. And we'll probably see this in NZ cause we get all the good bikes!
First impressions say I like it too. Much better than Tiger, Strom or GS, and I think better than Capo. Good luck to them I say
I can't wait for all the "850 vs 1200...which is better?" threads
looks awful heavy to me.
i wonder how long that shaftie would last offroad in big bend?
I bet their 850 will outrun the planned F800GS though.... but in all other respects will be deficient thereto
...the name should have been CapoNorge !!
Wha? No way. I'll bet it's a 100 lbs heavier than the 800GS...
The current lineup of bikes weigh 520-540 lbs range. This one should be no different.
The current lineup of bikes MSRP in the $13.5k to $15k range. They are going for the BMW R12GS with this Stelvio, so I'd expect it to be priced close to the Norge at around $15k.
The Stelvio looks ok, but I like the Quota better. The front wheel on the Stelvio looks small to me. Is the front wheel a 17 inch like the new Tiger? My impression is that the 17 inch is preferable for corner carving, but it gives up a lot of stability to the 21 inch Quota front in sand.
I read that it will be offered with the 850 engine. Is the 850 a bored or stroked Breva 750 engine, or a sleeved down 1100? I remember when BMW came out with the R850R as a sleeved down R1100. (it never was very popular because it weighed as much as the 1100) I rode the Breva 750 and loved it. That 750 engine would be wonderful in a backroad bike.
The Stelvio's front wheel is 19". A good choice IMHO.
The 850 engine is a "big block". In other words, yes, it is a downsized 1100. I don't know if the difference is bore, stroke, or both.
The 850 was originally intended for the European market. Chances are Stelvio will only come to the USA in 1200cc form.
I've owned a Quota and I really liked the looks. Unfortunately, airflow management sucked; it didn't have very good ground clearance; and the front forks were pretty weak for a 550lbs bike.
I actually really liked the Quota. The cool thing about them is that they are available for $4k to $5k in the used market.
