The craze continues and more manufacturers add this new class of motorcycles to their line up. Here’s a pair of the new Italian models we’ve seen so far, and a few links to articles that mention them.
Moto Guzzi Stelvio
In the larger category is the Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200. Not sure if it actually qualifies as a sport adventure bike, but is more of a adventure tourer like the BMW GS 1200, KTM Adventure, Honda Varadero etc. (phew! all those freaking motorcycle categories these days). But anyways, rumor has it Moto Guzzi will make an 850cc version as well, that’ll probably qualify better. Don’t know about you but I always thought Moto Guzzi’s looked a little funky in an odd kind of way.
Moto Morini Granpasso 1200
Still on the heavy side, but it looks like the Moto Morini Granpasso 1200 has a wee bit more sport in it. Doesn’t look all bad if you ask me.
