Moto Guzzi has put the Stelvio 1200 back in the cards with the launch of the ABS version (standard model carries on) at the last Intermot show. The 2009 Stelvio 1200 4V is an undisputable contender for models such as the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 and even the BMW R 1200 GS in the super enduro category.
What helps distinguish the 2009 model year is, without a doubt, the upgraded braking system with double piston radial calipers and ABS, but the all-season accessories such as the adjustable saddle and windshield enhance comfort and, implicit, the rider’s capacity to cover up miles. Also, the sidebags have you ready for the long haul and make sure you never ask for more. Anticipating a rider’s needs, the historic manufacturer also ads a small glove box with handle command to the range of goodies.
The 2009 Stelvio 1200 4V is available either white or red painted. These colors do make it stand out as the stylish Italian bike that it is, even though the category of riders to which it addresses doesn’t look quite for that at a bike.
Furthermore, Moto Guzzi has introduced a new model named Stelvio 1200 4V NTX. This late arrival is powered by a significantly torquier engine of the same displacement and configuration. This special model comes only with ABS, the other notable difference being the gold color. Full story
