The Stelvio NTX is a smart big-bore purpose bike that is a rival for the BMW.

Craig road tests and reviews the Guzzi Stelvio NTX 8V.

Learning your mistakes makes you a rider. It makes for a better too, at least in the case of Guzzi’s dual-purpose Stelvio NTX 8V.

The model was criticised for only an 18 litre tank. When the and class leader — R1200 GS Adventure — doubles it and dual-purpose riders to cover lots of kays, was a drawback. Enter the 2012 with a 32 litre tank, front end and impeccable manners.

The Guzzi costs $22,990 but money buys you a lot of bike, all with quality gear. The are Brembo, the front forks and the rear monoshock is sourced Sachs. It’s all mounted in a alloy frame and the overall is quality.

It is $4300 cheaper the class-leading BMW R1200 GS Adventure and adds up to a lot of extra riding or new gear.

Traction control and switchable ABS are on the Stelvio NTX. Both are as is the remapped fuel injection helps transmute the 77kW/113Nm an easy riding machine is superbly comfortable to ride for a bike bike. The seat has reshaped for long rides and isn’t a lot to criticise on the bike.

Italian adventure machine is imposing but rides lighter it looks. It also comes all the barwork needed for off-road — engine and oil sump hand guards and a tall that deflects dust, and rain. The detachable alloy add to the aggressive picture.

Motorbikes don’t come ANCAP ratings: crashing one is a good idea. That’s true of dual-purpose machines to go well off the beaten track. The is equipped with enough plates that the chances are it will survive the fall the same can’t necessarily be of the rider.

It’s not very that big adventure bikes put a on my face — I’m in the who see dual purpose machines as compromised. And I’m not that on the dirt. Still the Stelvio is solid on lightly corrugated but it comes into its own on broken where it keeps encouraging you to go

Behind the bars you can forget how big it is and concentrate on how well it flows. a little bit of vibration from the big but it is muted enough that it start inducing pins and The revised screens are easy to at a glance, which helps you’re standing on the pegs.

The Stelvio NTX is a smart big-bore purpose bike that is a rival for the BMW. The quality is the ride is fun and it will be interesting to see how new Explorer rates against it it lands Down Under this year.
