It’s Back! Moto Guzzi Reinvents Its Stelvio Adventure Bike For 2024

The new adventure touring machine will make its public debut at EICMA.

Published on 10.30.2023

It’s official. Moto Guzzi is releasing an all-new, more advanced version of its Stelvio adventure touring bike for the 2024 model year. The original Stelvio, powered by a 1151cc air/oil cooled V-twin, was discontinued back in 2017 after an eight-year run, with parent company Piaggio citing low sales numbers versus the expense of meeting then Euro 4 emissions standards.

The new machine, due for its official unveiling at the start of next month’s EICMA show in Milan, isn’t a huge surprise. At last year’s show Guzzi hinted at the return of a Stelvio and since then, prototypes have been spotted out testing near the Italian maker’s headquarters on the shores of Lake Como. 

Ahead of the show, Moto Guzzi has spilled much of the tea on its own website, however, including posting photos and technical specs that depict an on-road leaning adventure tourer that’s certain to interest many. After all, the original was a well-priced solid runner, and this new Euro 5+ ready version appears to have a ton more amenities.

The new bike is expected to be dubbed the V100 Stelvio, representing expansion of a V100 line that kicked off with the V100 Mandello road tourer, released last year.

Therefore the Stelvio engine will be a “compact block” 1042cc liquid-cooled, transverse V-twin, which Guzzi claims will provide 115 hp at 8700 rpm and peak torque of 77.4 lb ft at 6750 rpm. That power will find its way to the rear wheel via a durable shaft drive. The company states the engine will deliver satisfying thrust even at low revs, as it should with all that off-road friendly torque. Guzzi also says the Stelvio will emit a deep and loud exhaust tone with a distinct rhythm, a quality that’s become synonymous with the brand over the years.

Guzzi has become known for producing bikes with a sporty feel and it’s likely the Stelvio has inherited the V100’s steel tubular frame which uses the engine as a stress member. In a nod to its alter-ego off-roading side, the bike will be equipped with an adjustable aluminum handlebar. 

A tubeless-friendly wheelset consists of a 19-inch front followed by a 17-inch rear, both spoked, while Brembo brakes slow the steed. For bump absorption, the Stelvio uses 46mm forks working in concert with a mono shock out back to provide 6.69 inches of travel front and rear. Both components can be hydraulically adjusted for rebound and preload.

The electronics package on the all-new Stelvio is advanced. There’s a five-inch color TFT display where the rider can dial up five customizable riding modes. The bike will come with traction control, cornering ABS and cruise control. Buyers can additionally opt for Guzzi’s PFF Rider Assistance Solution, which uses 4D imaging radar front and rear to track surrounding objects. This comes in handy for lane spacing when the bike is in cruise mode and also will detect objects in a rider’s blindspot.

Aesthetically, the bike looks much more modern than its predecessor with sleeker lines and integrated bodywork Guzzi says was fine-tuned during wind tunnel testing. There’s a more pronounced dip in the saddle that supports the bike’s preliminary messaging about a universally-pleasing seat height. The Stelvio will of course be immediately recognizable with its jutting cylinder heads and we also like its tidy, beak-less chin.

A large electronically-adjustable windscreen looks nice for touring while a 5.54 gallon tank is said to offer a range of about 250 miles. LED lights all around are effective, and also add to the bike’s updated, modern flare.  

The last generation of Stelvio was eventually offered with an NTX package which included adventure-worthy amenities like an aluminum skid plate, engine guards, Hella lighting, hand guards and high-quality, quick-detach panniers in addition to a larger 8.5 gallon fuel tank. No word if such a package will be an option for the new-gen Stelvio, though Guzzi promises on its website a trove of factory accessories will soon be revealed.

Much more will be discovered during the EICMA event in Milan running November 7th-12th. One thing we’re very keen to hear is the Stelvio’s cost. In the past Guzzi’s flagship-style adventure bike was very competitively priced next to its competitors, and we’re hoping the same for this model.

I thought I had my list trimmed down to three bikes, but now it’s back up to four! I’m looking forward to test riding two new bikes now: the Stelvio, and the F900GS.

I just might be interested in trading in both my Stelvio & Grisso for this one. Can’t wait to sit on this bike & seeing what it is all about.

I’d never ride this thing on anything more adventurous than a dirty parking lot, but I’ve wanted a Motto Guzzi for years, and I’ve never wanted one as much as I wants this one.

I am along the lines of D W. I have flirted with the idea of owning a Guzzi for decades. And this bike would struggle to negotiate the 800′ dirt/gravel (now muddyish) drive path to my house. But dayum … this rig is a hard want if first press releases are anything to go by.

It is a common mistake that people refer to Moto Guzzi engines as “transversely mounted”, when in fact they are a longitudinally mounted engine. The sole determining factor is the orientation of the crankshaft, not the cylinders.

Moto Guzzi themselves call it transversely mounted. It’s even on their specs sheet.

Problem is same as always, try finding a dealer. My closest is 150 miles. I’ve had 4 Guzzis but there was a dealer 40miles away then.

Tried to get a measure of it at EICMA. Beautiful bike, But I am biased as I am a fan of the previous Stelvio as well. At 6’1 I could easily put both my feet completely flat on the ground while seated. Very comfortable to seat on, not too bad standing up, as much as you can tell while stationary. For me, this was one of the highlights of EICMA 2023.
