Is Moto Guzzi working on a new adventure model? These spy photos would seem to suggest that is the case, as this bike was caught outside of Piaggio HQ, with the longintudinal v-twin heads popping out of the sides of the spoked-wheel machine. Caught by Moto.it, the Italian publication seems to think this is more of a super/hypermotard type of machine, though the proportions to us look to be more well-suited for adventure touring.
With the Moto Guzzi Stelvio three years old now (and far more refined than its original self), it is hard to imagine Moto Guzzi dropping the design for something new, but then again, crazier things have happened…like the bodywork on this beast. Hopefully that front fairing doesn’t stick around too long (same goes for the boxy chin fairing), other wise we will have to do some research on what “ugly duckling” is in Italian.
