Weird. My dealer will let me test ride anything in the showroom.
I find the Stelvio relatively light handling and don't notice any real difference between it and any of my other bikes riding around in town. I use mine to commute into Boston and have considered its weight an issue.
Pushing it around in the garage is the only time I really notice the weight. The guys with the new ones with the big tanks may have a different opinion though (but I doubt it).
