GUZZI FANS are if not passionate. When recent came down that company Piaggio had temporarily Guzzis historic Mandello del factory and laid off some of its while the factory underwent conspiracy theorists howled this was the end for Italys oldest operating motorcycle manufacturer.

Not did the Guzzi faithful refuse to for any talk of the brands dismissal, vehemently insisted that continue to be produced only in del Lario! Passionate characters, Unfortunately, in the past, Guzzi have been a passionate even among Italian marques, as widepsread rumors of dealership experiences brought on by parts supplies dissuaded Guzzi buyers.

But since the purchase by Piaggio in 2004, products with dramatically quality control have rumbling out of Guzzis factory Looking toward the future, the has confirmed that Guzzis continue to be produced in the same they always have and with the appearance of the breathtaking Terblanchedesigned concept models at the recent EICMA Milan Show (see World page 10), it appears as Moto Guzzis best are ahead of it.

The 2010 Moto Stelvio ABS only reinforces belief. Introduced in 2008 as a for Moto Guzzis Quota motorcycle, the Stelvio is named the legendary Stelvio Pass, a mountain road in the southeastern that has drawn motorcyclists around the world to experience its charms, the Stelvio ABS has been via minor revisions to increase its Of course, the biggest news is it now comes standard with which bumps its MSRP up from $14,990 to $15,990.

The heartbeat of the Stelvio ABS continues to from the smooth-running, solid-performing SOHC 4-valve 90 V-twin first appeared in Moto Griso … sport


Unchanged since its in 2008, the Stelvio ABS chassis is from tubular steel and the engine as a stressed member. Its is 61.4, and its 27 rake


and 5.00 are appropriate for a with adventure touring The biggest complaint of most motorcycles is that the shaft unsettles the rear suspension, referred to as jacking when the gear on the shaft climbs the gear during acceleration.

Guzzis CARC (Cardano Compatto) compact reactive drive combats this via a system that cancels the forces placed on the Stelvios swingarm, and its so effective that you forget you are riding a shaft-drive The Stelvio also doesnt or pitch when the throttle is the CARC preserving the comfort of the

As one might expect from a with such a long the Stelvio is rock stable in a line, but it is also more willing to tackle twisty at higher speeds. Its steering is enough that you wont the Stelvio for the Yamaha R1 tested in this issue, but the Stelvio is to carve graceful turns. For a heavy motorcycle, its agility is and its lean angle is decent.

one of our more experienced testers was to easily scrape the kick when hauling the Stelvio lefthand turns. The Stelvios Marzocchi Magnum fork and shock have a lot to do with its prowess as well as its comfort. The are adjustable for preload as well as and rebound damping. The left leg compression damping and the right rebound damping.

Typical of Marzocchis, the screw-type do not use clickers to determine adjustment As delivered, our fork and shock too soft and tended to make the feel overweight and heavy-steering. We the stock setting to be two complete out from maximum compression and two turns out from maximum damping.

Turning both to one turn out from maximum the problem with the front while a simple twist of the adjuster to dial-in the shock for rider weight was enough to the suspension. Overall bump is very good.

ol riding And the ABS system is also quite We appreciated its ability to activate without sending excessive through the front brake The rear brake, however, is of many systems weve offering a firm, resistant at the pedal, as if the brake isnt at all, when the ABS is activated. All just Moto Guzzineed to working to alleviate this of negative feedback from ABS.

Like the BMW GS, the Stelvio on 2.50 x 19 and 5.50 x 17 spoked that are engineered for use with tires. However, the BMW design the spokes in the rim shoulders while the Guzzis innovative design the spokes in the center of the rim by using solid nipples that can be the same way as any spoked wheel. We are impressed with the Stelvios front and 180/55R17 rear Scorpion Sync radials, offer an amazing degree of

They feel glued to the Interestingly, the Stelvio ABS was originally to be fitted with narrower and tires as specd on the fully Euro-only Stelvio STX, but Guzzi USA personnel requested the factory stay the course the Stelvios original tire and widths, a good choice most Stelvios will most of their time on the rather than in the dirt.


A wide handlebar the Stelvio rider a lot of leverage negotiating turns, although of our testers thought that rise is a bit too high and suggested the bars would be more if they were rotated in the triple clamps. The Stelvios offers plenty of padding and a that is wide in the rear but narrow at the tank junction, leg room and rider maneuverability and it easier for inseamchallenged riders to the ground.

But while the Stelvios does a decent job of protecting torso from wind and and doesnt buffet the helmet at speeds, its compact size with the wide handlebar to the riders arms exposed to the Cold-day riding left us for heated grips and/or to deflect the wind. Moto sells both items as for the Stelvio.

The Stelvio ABS shares the easy-to-read instrumentation as its sister, the 8V, with almost the same including an analog tachometer, speedometer with dual function. Additionally, the trip offers lots of information to the such as current and average mileage, distance to empty, speed, maximum speed and temperature. All trip computer is easily accessed via a toggle on the left handlebar cluster.

As much as we appreciated the performance of components on the Stelvio, its Brembo are among the best feeling and powerful binders on any motorcycle perhaps, the Ducati Streetfighter S, and it come with ABS. The dual front 320mm rotors and radial-mounted 4-piston and 282mm rear disc 2piston caliper were able to pull the reins on the during our braking drills.

By the ABS, our testbike went 600 mph in a relatively short 120.79′, fairly consistent stops in the rangeimpressive for such a heavy Activating the ABS option only less than 10′ to the stopping distance. Our best ABS was 129.79′.

But quite frankly, the of the Brembos is as impressive as their Feedback is excellent, allowing the to dial in exactly the amount of force dictated by the seat of the


While a certain motorcycle manufacturer may still the upper hand in the adventure category, the Moto Guzzi ABS is proof that the Italians are for top spot on the mantle. While street- than dirt-oriented, the is nonetheless a comfortable, excellent-performing with a high degree of that happens to speak rather than German. As go, you could not ask for much more.


Left: The changes Moto Guzzi made to the 4V only enhance its character. include revised camshafts, new injectors and revised ECU mapping to enhance mid-range torque, at the expense of peak horsepower. One was all it took for us to appreciate the change.

Right: The CARC compact shaft drive system such a fine job of eliminating drive jacking, it was easy to the Stelvio is a shafty. Right: The LED rear taillight integrates the signals in a compact package. The offer a unique look could only come Italy.

Above: The Stelvios seat is well padded and features an narrow profile at the seat/tank The seat provides excellent and, if necessary, makes it for the rider to stand up. Above The Stelvios conventional-appearing spoked feature sealed nipples allow the use of tubeless tires.

Its 320mm Brembo brakes excellent power and feel in or out of ABS Left: The Stelvios tach and LCD are easy to read, and its trip offers a wealth of info. The Stelvios 50mm Marzocchi features compression control in one rebound in the other.

Its windscreen offer better wind but the mirror-mounted turn signals are a touch.


Were I to bestow names on inanimate my name of choice for the Stelvio be Porky as homage to its 600+ of wet weight. This attribute is noticeable when lifting the big off the sidestand. Fortunately, the centerstand is and positioned in such a way that the pops up into its parked with minimal effort.

this weight would to preclude offroad adventuring on any more technical than packed dirt, the quick power of its big 1200 cc, V-twin easily overcomes its bulk as the is twisted and acceleration rapidly While engine vibration intrusive at first, this somewhat retro characteristic is by the Stelvios thoroughly modern, shifting transmission, responsive manners and comfortable upright position.

Traveling pleasure is by a seat that is wide to give adequate support to the derriere, but narrow enough in to enable even the short among us to adequately reach the when at a stop. With a set of cases and a tank bag, the has the makings of a competent and personable touring mount that I happily enjoy for thousands of Gary Prickett Ive never a fan of adventure bikes.

My stance has always been if you a real off-road adventure, get a off-road motorcycle. Wrestling an hardbag-laden streetbike with through the dez seemed about as fun to me as to do the same with a Honda Wing. However, Id almost taking the Moto Guzzi in the dirt.

Its really too pretty to get but its smooth, torquey engine, balanced chassis, excellent and, yes, even its had me believing that I could go about anywhere on the planet the Stelvio in perfect happiness. And lies the real beauty of the On the mean streets or in the outback, it you with a sense of adventure time you ride it. Man, how is that? Scott Rousseau
