For those who are really, really serious about their off-road adventure touring...
Moto Guzzi are going after the BMW R1200GS Adventure in a big way. To lure buyers away from the big-bruiser-Beemer, Guzzi are all set to launch a new version of the Stelvio – the Stelvio 1200 4V NTX – which seems to be a bit more off-road-oriented than the standard bike.
The NTX’s engine remains unchanged but the bike gets various new accessories as standard kit. These include side panniers, various guards for the shaft drive and the engine, additional lights and off-road tyres. After all, if you’re going the long way around, you might as well look the part… :-)
