2012 Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200NTX

Riding pleasure at its best.

With 84 hairpin corners at an altitude over 9,000 feet, the Stelvio Pass in the Italian Alps is known as the “greatest driving road” in the world and it’s also the testing ground for the Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 NTX ABS. The Stelvio 1200 NTX ABS brings together Moto Guzzi character with state-of-the-art performance, design and an 8.5 gallon gas tank perfect for long distance riding . It comes standard with ABS, Automatic Traction Control, aluminum side bags, hand guards, and adjustable wind screen, saddle height, handlebar, clutch levers and foot pegs.

The NTX is the more "adventurous" version of the Stelvio, and now has all the technical features of the base version, plus some exceptional new fixtures, i.e. the sturdy "armour" that embraces it and comprises the oil sump guard, engine guard, cylinder guard, full cover hand-guards and extra large windshield with additional wind deflectors to protect the rider and his bike against the hidden dangers throughout his trip.

The heart that beats inside this touring bike is the renowned V-shaped 90° transverse twin-cylinder "Four valve" engine, the highest performer among all the families of engines manufactured at Mandello del Lario, which has now reached exclusive levels as far as its technical/performance development is concerned.

This latest version can boast the careful attention paid to achieve a more silent and smooth running of the engine, whilst tweaking the electronic control, timing system and cooling system. The brand new integrated ignition and injection ECU now exploits the signals sent by the two lambda probes to guarantee adequate feeding throughout the entire combustion cycle, improving response to the throttle control, low-to-mid-range power delivery further to consumptions and emissions. The ECU also includes the ATC system to prevent sliding: this system controls ignition advance and injection to cut torque delivery whenever a sudden loss of grip is detected so as to help the rider to remain in control under extreme, unexpected conditions. The system can be deactivated, just like ABS.

The engine now boasts a maximum torque of over 113 Nm delivered at a mere 5,800 rpm and easily reaches a peak in output of over 105 HP; it practically reaches an automobile-level speed of 7,250 rpm.

A bike dedicated to long haul travellers naturally needs luggage space, hence the spacious aluminium panniers and additional halogen lights. Even more luxury options are available on the accessory catalogue including a GPS navigator installation kit, heated hand-grips, CA.RC protection (Compact Reactive Cardan Shaft Drive), aluminium top box for the NTX or side wind deflectors, extra large windshield, dedicated body coloured plastic polymer panniers and top box kit for the 1200 8V version.

The new Stelvios are available in Guzzi Black, Moon White and Sienna colour schemes, while the NTX will flaunt a brand new colour concept on a black satin finish base (Lava Black).

I just wanted to bring special attention to the price for this fully decked out adventure touring bike: $16k (and that's either the USA or Canada)

Have fun voting and discussing this very special Moto Guzzi model!

This bike just has to be awesome. Any bike that has been developed on an Italian course and then improved for daily riding can't be anything but awesome!

Normally I like/dislike bikes mostly based on looks, but even though this bike does not appeal to me aesthetically I am still voting it as awesome. Wow, that's saying something!

It strikes me the same as the Versys 1000 or the VStrom DL1000...kinda ugly, but would probably be a great bike to ride. I'm lovin' the 32L tank, comfortable looking saddle & ability to carry a pile of camping/fishing gear...an SUV of bikes...

I voted: COOL (the looks stopped me from voting AWESOME)

Later.

"Technically" the longitudinal is the "correct" way and the transversal is the "sideways". Regardless longitudinal makes more sense for shaft driven bikes.

As for the bike, I rather see Guzzis in a more sporting manner. This bike is like a lot of SUVs, a dirt poser. I'll still give it a cool rating.

Arguably the best ever courier bike there is was the old Honda CX550's and CX650's non-turbo'ed models, and they had the same engine/drive train configuration as this Guzzi. Almost bought one for my last courier bike, but someone beat me to the punch, I ended up with a CB650 instead.
Always ask why.

Guzzis are cool and "tall-rounders" are cool, so this bike gets a cool vote from me. Wish it was prettier, but then, pretty much all adventure tourers (or adventure-tourer styled bikes) are ugly; it's really a form-follows-function genre. The only reason it isn't awesome is there are more awesome Guzzis and more awesome adventure tourers out there.

What is awesome to one is ugly to another. I love the look and having had an 1982 SP 1000 Guzzi that was an awesome bike 15 years after it was built has me voting awesome for this one.

If that bike can do only half of what that 80's bike did, it will be very good. I did thousands on that Guzzi both on tar and dirt road and it never let me down.

Is this marketed as an adventure tourer? I just don't see it.

The price is nice. The design is almost there and moto guzzi's are always fun to ride. It got a cool from me.

Does anyone else see that front fairing as a miniature Harley Batwing?

I voted: Cool

Ah, such a busy week, I almost forgot to vote on this one, but better late than never. :D

I really like the idea of adventure tourers, comfortable, tall, go anywhere and do anything (within reason) and have a gas tank that will last and luggage options that are great. There really hasn't been an "awesome" looking dual sport IMO, but they are definately more practicle and functionally designed.

The price is pretty amazing all things considering, only a few thousand more than a Suzuki V-Strom (which we know is a good value leader) and it's a Moto-Guzzi? Great stuff.

A little heavy IMO for off-roading, but then again I am not sure I would do much serious off-roading in a full sized adventure bike anyways...

Although it's a great all-rounder to tour Texas and the rest of 'Merka.
