STELVIO 1200 4V: the pleasure of riding at the top.

The new Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 4V has been designed and developed to brave any destination, devouring kilometers of roads and even off-road surfaces. This multipurpose capability is evident at first glance .Inspired by off-road bikes, Stelvio 1200 4V breaks the traditional, austere look of models in this market segment by introducing new intense shapes and a dynamic energy that evokes the feeling of adventure, long routes, the most extreme use. Slender and streamlined in the lower part, highlighted by refined aluminium spoke wheels and the technology seen in the powertrain and final transmission, the Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 4V is compact and robust in the upper part, revealing the care taken to obtain the best ergonomics for the rider.

They are sculptured shapes that stress the numerous design details to respond to an active and intense use, such as the presence of a powerful double front headlight assembly, the windshield and the adjustable seat, the ample section of chassis guides, the aluminium exhaust silencer, the careful assessment for passenger and luggage transport.

This design concept has been designed to stress the throbbing heart of Stelvio 1200 4V, the unmistakable 90° transversal V-twin engine in its most functional “quattrovalvole” (four valves) version. The Stelvio 1200 4V is strong, powerful, and dominant in its action.

Shapes of dynamic energy.

Stelvio 1200 4V marks the return of Moto Guzzi to the Maxi-Enduro segment, a motorcycle concept developed on the echoes of the great popularity of African marathons. An austere motorcycle, dominated by impressive tanks strongly integrated to the fairings that extend until the engine is almost hidden, by the undoubtedly fascinating as well as irrational image when adventure does not have the equator as its horizon, but just crossing an urban centre or riding along main roads leading towards weekend or holiday destinations.

Starting from this premise, Moto Guzzi has developed a stylistic idea as a countertrend, highlighting the dynamic energy expressed by the mechanics and the chassis at sight, with tight-fitting panels, with clean cuts and sharp lines, able to give the vehicle a sensation of lightness and power, in an ensemble of solid elegance and class. Stelvio 1200 4V immediately captivates with its front end look- two side-by-side headlamps with convex lens create a three-dimension effect that makes the machine look compact, also helped by the effect created by the satin reinforcement in anthracite colour. This solution is also applied to the mudguard and tank rear, which not only creates an original aesthetic design but also protects surfaces from gravel as well as reinforces the image of a vehicle resistant even under the most demanding situations.

The light fairing emphasizes numerous prismal elements and concave surfaces, and a careful aerodynamic study is perceived at the assembly formed by the adjustable shield on the top fairing plus the contoured but capacious tank. An evident characteristic in the front view is the predominance of two auxiliary air deflectors highlighted with silver paintwork and metal louvers, designed to direct fresh air to cylinders. The top fairing, matching the double headlight assembly, forms a shape that deviates the aerodynamic load when riding at high speeds. The peculiar blow molding technology was used to produce the tank and helps to minimize dimensions and weight according to the (18-litre) capacity. Moreover, it includes a fantastic glove-box that can be unlocked from the handlebar and is atop the saddle, which, by covering the grooves, avoids direct contact with the rider’s legs to ensure superior riding comfort. Once you are seated on the saddle, finely upholstered with non-slip material, it is quite noticeable there is more space for both rider and passenger’s comfort. The rider saddle height can be adjusted to two positions, 820 mm or 840 mm from the ground, whereas the passenger, besides being seated on a thick and spacious seat, can count on a solid and comfortable handhold seat strap. Even more aggressive from the forecarriage, the rear end look is dominated by the hi-tech aspect of the rear light with complex surface curve and LEDs, and by an important enhanced aluminium double tail silencer that evokes solidness and power.

IN FRONT, WHATEVER THE ROAD.

The new Moto Guzzi Stelvio completes the range renovation programme that, in little over 24 months, has seen this legendary marque regain all its past splendour.

What was missing and what the public were impatiently waiting for now is now available in the form of a complete motorcycle. This is the Italian answer to the demand for a multi-purpose maxi-enduro machine that can adapt to all conditions and restore the pleasure of riding.

A machine with these characteristics could not have been a descendant of previous models but was created as part of a totally new project. It is the direct result of a long and painstaking research and development programme that involved countless riders of all types and widely differing conditions of use. Moto Guzzi undertook this challenge with one particular key element already decided upon: the new “Quattrovalvole” engine.

Docile and powerful at low and medium revs, this twin-cylinder, single raised cam transverse unit is housed in a slender tubular frame that appears so fundamental as to make even specialists in off-roading look again. Riders will appreciate the absorption characteristics of the 50 mm upside-down forks and the traction offered by the combined action of the rear single swingarm and the progressive rear suspension system, not to mention the superb CA.R.C (reactive shaft drive) final drive. If the fact that the Stelvio is very much at its ease on deceptive surfaces with little adhesion is down to the superb frame design, its decreased weight and smooth power delivery; its vocation as a tourer is highlighted in the many little details that were specifically included to make daily use sheer pleasure. The windscreen and saddle can be adjusted, side bags come as standard and the pillion passenger’s part of the saddle is more than comfortable in both size and shape. A small storage compartment that can be unlocked from the handlebars has been positioned between the screen and tank. It is the little details that make all the difference and make riding this machine such a pleasure. With over 100 CV on tap, the machine offers superb performance while the sound it makes says it all. It goes without saying that safety is at the forefront with powerful radial brake calipers housing twin parallel pistons. Besides this Moto Guzzi Maxi-Enduro’s performance and technology, there is another element that sets it apart from the competition: its beauty. The Moto Guzzi Stelvio captivates with its front end looks and slender profile. The aggressive Guzzi red or sophisticated white colour schemes catch the eye and are set off by the anodised tubeless spoked wheels.

Sensation of inner wellbeing

Stelvio 1200 4V is a tourer, that can also be used off-road, and with excellent performance on asphalt. These characteristics emerge immediately once you are seated on the bike, where the perception of carefully-designed ergonomics can be felt straightaway: saddle, footrests and handlebar form a perfect triangle for all users. Moreover, for the perfectionists, there is still room for minor adjustments: windshield, saddle height (820 or 840 mm), handlebar inclination, levers, pedals, also for professionals, set screws to adjust hydraulic compression/rebound damping of suspensions.

In a matter of seconds, everything is at the right place to face any challenge, from city traffic to the most inaccessible off-road paths. In motion, reduced vibration and an efficient aerodynamic protection ensure riding comfort for rider and passenger as well, ideal to tackle long trips. Among the most appreciated features for everyday use, there is a glove-box to the left-side of the tank that can be unlocked from the handlebar and even, if your are wearing gloves. The instrument panel features complete and easily visible gauges- a white-background rpm indicator that incorporates efficient service warning lights, long range lights (optional), and a dash display that provides plenty of information about the vehicle operation and diagnosis, a fuel level indicator, average and current consumption, average speed, trip time, maximum speed peak reached and, as heated handgrips may be fitted upon request, the heating level of handgrips can also be seen.

The Stelvio 1200 4V is a class leader, as a result of an elegant aesthetic appearance, is also enhanced by features which, while fulfilling a stylistic function, set new parameters in terms of effectiveness and safety.

Some examples are the headlight assemblies, highly reliable and effective, manufactured with technology borrowed from the automotive industry, fittings for the panniers are integrated to the passenger handgrips and the luggage racks, design elements expressing the versatility and calling for adventure and touring of the Stelvio 1200 4V model.
