To Skywalker,
Yeh I was looking at the Quota too, very hard to find over here in Aus.

To John G,
I actually grew up in Mackay, but the Air Force has moved me around a lot since then.

Guess the redesign took it from the GS world to that of the new Tiger and Multistrada. Too bad.

Good news, as far as I'm concerned. It was always going to suck off the pavement, no matter what size wheels and tires it had, so why compromise the pavement performance with a 19" wheel? Make it tall and comfortable, let it handle properly with a 17" wheel.

Those bikes have different valve covers and heads. Is the top one a 4V?

The pics at the top of the page are what was seen at the dealer show. No official/unofficial pics of the re-design seen yet other than the video in previous post.

Thats correct, top bike is the 1200 8valve - bottom bike's the 850 that will probly never arrive in USA. And thats a pity because same as the Breva 750 is better better than 1100, so goes the Stelvio is my guess. Meanwhile just for eye candy, try the amazing MG NTX650 enduro, another amazing Guzzi we've never seen.

http://utenti.lycos.it/motoguzzilove...50Ntx65001.jpg



Now somebody on this thread asked what the Guzzi can do better than R1200GS? Short answer: Personally I'd caution anybody who owns boxer twin from ever riding the Guzzi Veee, for obvious reasons it just aint something you wanna do if yer owning BMW boxer twin. Rode beemers myself 12 yrs and got nothin against em, just do NOT ride Moto Guzzi or you'll be sorry you did.

Meanwhile SPECS!! I want specs, wet and dry weight before hearing how "heavy" it is. Looks like Stelvio spine frame = light weight alloy. That's the achilles heal of the Quota - double loop Tonti tubular frame handles great but weighs 150lbs itself, nearly 1/3 of total gross.

Finally another myth on this thread that oughta be debunked - Stelvio has nothing in common with Norge or Griso with respect to frame and suspension components, nothin identical there. LOL, might as well compare the Quota to California in that regard.


- Cheers'n keep it between the lines

Agreed. It was few and far between that I took my Q down the dirt roads. If I did, it was with great caution.

Now if they just put the 1200cc/8v motor in the Belagio with tubeless wire wheels I'd buy it NOW!
