Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 NTX: a 90° adventure

Galleries -

By

Take the road-biased Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 and change the torque curve from 80lb/ft peaking at 6,400rpm to 83lb/ft at 5,800rpm, add a narrower 4.25×17″ rear rim (capable of accepting enduro rubber), an aluminum sump guard, brush guards, aluminum luggage, engine bars and auxiliary lights and you have the NTX. Add all that to the 1,151cc air-cooled 90° twin making 105bhp, the 18-liter tank capacity and a 251kg curb weight and you essentially have a BMW R1200GS Adventure without the pokey outey cylinders. We’d go with the NTX just to be different.

    The Stelvio is a good looking bike on the road, it definitely LOOKS as tough as an Adventure

    Holy shit! This thing rocks. I love it. I think I want one, and I hate these kind of bikes usually.

    I think I want to drive one around the country on one. Maybe to Alaska.

    Nice one Guzzi.

    Can we get two mung Italian actors to do a faux world randonneur on it? Maybe make a TV series, a little cash, and boost some Guzzi sales?

    Very cool looking bike, if I was taller I’d seriously consider it, but only 18 liters of gas? For an ‘Adventure’ bike?

      18 liters is a typo. The tank is 32liters.

    does anyonce actually know of a guzzi dealer on the west coast that still sells guzzis? seriously; I checked with a couple in CA and both tried to sell me a Triumph instead. WTF?

    18 litres of gas is plenty – a range of more than 300 kilometers (nearly 190 miles). Can’t imagine being further away from a gas station on a big trailie like this. 80% of the time you use it as a road bike anyway – why do you want an unwieldy fat ugly tank to lug around with you wherever you go, just for that very rare occasion where you may just be 190 miles from the next gas station? In any event what’s wrong with a jerry can for those special bush trips?

    Two hundred and fifty kilos of leg breaking obsolete.
