    Amen - a 850cc Guzzi would make me aweful happy...especially if they shaved some serious lbs.

    That fairing looks very wrong. I like the rest of it though...

    Guzzi is supposed to have some surprise(s) at the Milan show this week. Maybe a new Quota?

    Nah, bad for sure, but nearly as bad as those F800GS Photochops that were all over the place last year... :evil

    I didn't see those other Photochops so I have to say this one sucks harder than any I have ever seen.

    Funny....the link describes theses as "Adventure Bikes' more like the 1050 tiger than the BMW GS. The abomonation of the word 'Adventure' has begun.

    Begun? I think the question is really when will it end. As soon as Honda brought out an off-road scooter you knew we were in trouble. Then again,
    it just means the segment is growing which is likely a good thing. If Triumph and HD can do it, why not Guzzi? Me, I'm just waiting for that Goldwing Adventure............

    the oil cooler...its also the first Guzzi 850 to get one...along with the new 1200 '8 valve'...they should be in a higher state of tune than previously...

    The 850 sounds fun... but I wish it at least came with a 19" front.

    Just in case someone is still interested: Here is the latest attempt to show us how the new Stelvio will be like. Apparently Moto Guzzi has confirmed that not only one, but two new Stelvio's will be available: One 850 2 valve (like on the Breva), and one with the new 1200 8 valve engine, according to www.raptorsandrockets.com. Alas, Guzzi is taking on the new Triumph Tiger 1050 rather than the GS. Or so it is speculated. Let's hope they bring on a bike worthy of the Stelvio name.

    I'm OK with 800-1000 cc displacement, but no-one seems to be placing any focus on weight reduction = nimble bikes.

    As interesting as the Guzzi looks, I just can't imagine it being light. How about a belt drive?

    I wish Yamaha would get off their asses and update the TDM (currently 900cc) - it's been holding this fort for 14 years and is just great on performance, handling and economy as a multipurpose, but needs a facelift.
