2012 Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 4V

The Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 4V differentiates itself as a no-frills, stand-up bike. It may not have the cache as some of its peers, but make no mistake, this is one bike that’s ready to rock and roll at a moment’s notice.

To say that this bike doesn’t come packed with features is a gross understatement to what it’s capable of. For starters, the Stelvio sits on a 19" spoked front wheel that tracks effortlessly on your chosen path. The riding position is comfortable for long journeys due to a large seat and adequate padding. The design is aerodynamic for its parts, the windscreen is manually adjustable, and nosecone moldings chop a good sized hole in the atmosphere. The bike also comes equipped with wide cases, engine protection guards, GPS navigation, heated hand grips, hand guards, fog lights, tank bags, and an anti-theft system that is available as an added accessory. As far as luggage space is concerned, the Stelvio 1200 4V comes with a small storage space in the tank shell that opens with a switch.

At the heart of the Stelvio 1200 4V is a new 90-degree, V-twin quattrovalvole - hence the 4V designation - engine that delivers a mouth-watering output of 103 horsepower. With this much power, the Stelvio 1200 4V has a suspension set-up that strikes a decent balance between compliance and control.

Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 4V

The Stelvio is a winding road immersed in the shadow of the Ortles Massif, with 84 hairpin bends reaching a height of 2,757 metres, linking Valtellina with Val Venosta. For motorcyclists, and other road-lovers, this road built in 1855 is a legendary route combining the difficulties of a winding mountain road with the beauty of nature, condensed into an extraordinary intense riding experience. For Moto Guzzi it’s a historical test bed, the ideal place to test different chassis setups, deceleration resistance and power, engine response, and suspension. A test bed where Mandello’s new creation, taking its first steps, immediately impressed riders thanks to the dynamic and fun handling. The bike was so impressive it seemed only natural to sum up the talent that went into the design and technical solutions of the new maxi enduro Moto Guzzi in the images and sensations of a place where riding pleasure is enriched by a sense of adventure, a sporting challenge, touring extreme: the Stelvio.
