    I did the same thing this morning. :lol3

    *edit: got an email from my dealer tonight. They're putting together a list and taking deposits. I'll be calling tomorrow.

    When I gave my Stelvio to my son it was because it was heavy for me. So I waited.........This is what I was (and will) waiting for. It would be nice to get some more specs.

    If the weight is not too high, it will be very interesting

    I'm really liking what I see here. I'll be after this one if the weight and fuel capacity check out. Keep the Ohlins and Brembos on it!

    I like it. Something would have to go though, and not the Stelvio. Probably don't need two DRs . . . (350 and 650).

    Looks like it's got cruise control on the left side. The instrument clusters the same as on the Aprilia RSV4. The controls look like a streamlined variant of what's on that bike.

    Well, I thought my V7II was the last bike that I would be buying. It looks like that is no longer true.
    It will be interesting to see how they will get 50% more horsepower.
    An important question: What does the swingarm pivot look like? The V7/V9 setup is not sturdy enough for serious off-road work. Is there something new hiding behind those castings?

    Cruise, wire wheels, shaft, ~80hp? I’m in! Hopefully 250 mile fuel range - it would be everything the F800GS should be.

    Hope we can get some more details and cost soon, but I like it! Even with the funky color combo I would like one.

    Since this bike is a nod to the Dakar 650NTX that had an 8 gallon tank, I have to believe that they put at least a 6 1/2-7 gallon tank on it. Honestly, if that tank on it is all tank and not dressing, it could possibly be 8 gallons. I would think they learned their lesson with the first version Stelvio with the small tank.

    I would bet the rims are the same as the Stelvio's and tubeless as well. They look exactly like the ones on my Stelvio. They're even the same size.

    Funny i was just thinking how I wanted a bike like the one Captain Kirk rode in Star Trek Beyond. Feel like this would get the sound right for sure.

    Mine won't. But there are a lot more trees than gas stations on the backroads I ride! :lol3

    This could very well be my next (and last) motorcycle if it comes to market. The seat height also looks like us shorter inseam riders won't need a stepladder to get on it.

    Beautiful job Moto Guzzi. :clap
