2012 Adventure-Touring Shootout

Not sure if this was posted before - an interesting comparison of R1200GS, Super Tenere, Stelvio, Tiger Explorer and KTM Adventure 990 done by Motorcycle.com:

Since both the video and the article say a lot of positive things about Stelvio, I was surprised by the conclusion. But it's the stuff they said like "the Guzzi is the character bike of the group" and "the Guzzi remains unsurpassed in regards to charisma and charm" that seems to represent what the bike is about. And I am still very interested in trying this bike and really hoping that I will like it enough to buy it. After all, while I was not impressed by R1200GS after three test rides, I ended up loving an old R1100GS I ended buying later because it just has a certain character and hard to explain appeal for me.
