Moto Guzzi Stelvio to compete with R1200GS

motoguzzistelvio1.jpgThe new range of Guzzis is beginning to look strangely like BMWs,
circa seven years ago. Named after the famous alpine pass, the Stelvio
is the latest and will attempt to compete with other adventure tourers
like the BMW R1200GS. All the big Guzzis are powered by the same
ancient air-cooled twin. Aficionados claim it has character and
history, but compare it to other bikes and it just feels slow. BMW was
able to radically alter its similarly staid image and appeal to a
younger audience by introducing exciting new bikes that weren’t
limited by adhering to existing classes. We can’t help but feel that
Moto Guzzi desperately needs to do the same.
