For the 2011 Moto Guzzi Stelvio, there really are no limits to where it can go...

For 2011, Moto Guzzi have tweaked their adventure tourer, the all-around capable NTX1200 Stelvio. With subtle revisions to the styling (the shape of the fuel tank has been revised, the top fairing, windshield and the half-fairing with integrated turn indicators are all brand new, claim Guzzi…), improved wind protection and increased fuel tank capacity, the Stelvio can now travel farther than ever before and offers improved levels of comfort to its rider and passenger.

The 2011 Stelvio’s 90° transverse 1,200cc twin-cylinder engine gets a revised ignition and ECU and an improved cooling system, for enhanced fuel efficiency and power delivery. With 102 horsepower at 7,000rpm and 104Nm of torque at 5,500rpm, the NTX Stelvio is capable of pulling like a locomotive. And its beefy, rigid steel tube frame, combined with the bike’s high-spec, fully adjustable 50mm Marzocchi USD fork and Sachs monoshock, is equally capable on and off the road. Brake components are from Brembo and ABS is standard fitment.

The even more adventure-oriented Stelvio gets extra bits like an oil sump guard, engine guard, cylinder guard and full cover hand-guards, which should all work to protect the bike and the rider when the going gets really rough. Other items like a GPS navigation system, heated handgrips and hard luggage are all available as optional extras. The Stelvio 1200 weighs 251kg dry and rides on 17-inch (rear) and 19-inch (front) wheels, wearing 150/70 and 110/80 rubber respectively.

For those looking for a rather less ubiquitous alternative to the R1200GS, the 2011 Moto Guzzi NTX1200 Stelvio should fit the bill perfectly.
