Finally, Moto Guzzi’s long-awaited Stelvio has been seen in testing phase!
For those of you who weren’t present, the Stelvio is an adventure bike that saw a reasonably good era from the 2007 reveal to the decennial axing of the model in 2016/2017 in lieu of Euro4 standard expenses (via Wikipedia).
Since then, the Stelvio has been out of Moto Guzzi catalogs… but we’re told that’s all about to change.
According to the spy shots aired out by Motociclismo, the Moto Guzzi’s new adventure tourer will be based on the V100 Mandello; as such, the Stelvio is expected to come with a transverse V-Twin capable of around 1042cc, or 115hp and 77lb-ft of peak yank (though we wouldn’t put it past the Italians to update those figures in anticipation of their refreshed ADV beauty).
The front light appears to be the same as the V100 Mandello, too, though everything else about the Stelvio is curated to suit a bike happiest in the mountains.
Here’s what we’re expecting for Moto Guzzi’s Stelvio:
- 19” spoked wheels
- Longer suspension befitting an adventure tourer
- Skid plate
- Tall windscreen
- Front and rear-facing radar (anticipated to be used for perks like adaptive cruise control)
Considering Moto Guzzi gave us the first official tease of the Stelvio at EICMA 2022, we expect the bike to be front and center of the brand’s display for EICMA 2023.
Curious as to what we think of the older Stelvio?
