The 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.
