Expect A New Moto Guzzi Stelvio This Fall

Spy shots from Italy show that development continues on a project Moto Guzzi first teased in 2022—an all-new Stelvio adventure bike.

The original Moto Guzzi Stelvio was sort of an anti-GS. It was similar; a big-bore European adventure touring motorcycle made to knock out long, hard miles. But it was most definitely a Guzzi, and over its 2007-2016 production run, the Stelvio made itself many, many fans, mostly people who wanted something different. Despite its quirks, there are still many Stelvio fans (including CMG writers, who liked our test machine we had back in 2012).

Emissions laws killed off the OG Stelvio, but there is more interest in ADV bikes than ever. For the past few years, Moto Guzzi has been selling the V85 air/oil-cooled series, but now the word is that we will soon get a new Stelvio with a liquid-cooled V-twin, same as found in the V100 Mandello sport tourer. Moto Guzzi itself has not exactly confirmed this, but they teased a photo of an alpine pass with a set of spoked wheels in front at the 2022 EICMA show. Now, photos of such a bike are popping up on social media and moto magazines in Europe. See below:

Aside from that new engine, the other big news about the new Stelvio is that it appears to have radar sensors, which indicates the presence of adaptive cruise control—all the competition has it, after all!

Those photos don’t exactly look like hurried snaps at a gas station, either; they look like a carefully planned marketing campaign. If that’s the case, and Moto Guzzi is trying to tease this machine without tipping their hand, then we expect a full reveal of the machine in August or at the latest, this November’s EICMA show.
