2008 Moto Guzzi Stelvio to take on BMW, Triumph, Ducati...

After months of rumour and speculation, the Moto Guzzi Stelvio is finally getting ready to hit dealerships across Europe by the end of this year. Like the Triumph Tiger and the Ducati Multistrada 1100, the Stelvio is styled like a big dual-purpose bike, but is essentially street-oriented.

The bike uses Guzzi's traditional shaft-drive system, the chassis is all-new and the Stelvio will be available with 4-valve 850cc and 8-valve 1200cc horizontally-opposed twin-cylinder engines. To be honest, we’re not big fans of Moto Guzzi here, and we really don’t know if the Stelvio will be able to take sales away from Ducati, BMW, Aprilia or Triumph – all those manufacturers have bikes in their lineup, which we think should have the Stelvio beat in terms of engine performance, handling, and sheer engineering finesse.

Sorry, we have no pics of the Stelvio that we can post here, but you can see the bike here. Or, try visiting the the Moto Guzzi homepage for more information.
