Spy Photo: Are You The New Moto Guzzi Stelvio?  moto guzzi adventure prototype

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. Checkout more photos of the bike on Moto.it.

    When they build a V12 to replace the V11, I’ll buy one. Until then, I’ll keep searching for the perfect V11.

    Just can’t groove on the 1200 Sport’s Breva looks. And “ugly duckling” in Italian is “Griso”.

    I see, there really is a Motorcycle God……albeit one with really bad Taste.

    Spoked wheels ? With a 17″ on the front ? WHAAAAAAAAAAT ? ? ?

    ….that body work. I hope is a complete and uber mock-up job to protect it’s true self…THING IS HIDEOUS.

    If i had to judge by what is given here…i would say this is more along the lines of a Supermoto ( a HUGE one at that ! ).
    …then again, is not like that sector is experiencing a “renaissance” or anything so i really can’t justify it’s existence…so…any other bright ideas ? Anyone ?

    Just let guzzi die already, they havent made anything that appeals to me in 20 years

  5. If they do check out, I’m laying my sacrifice on the alter for a roadgoing MGS-01 before they leave.
