New Guzzi "GS" model

With a new "GS" style Guzzi coming what are your thoughts?
http://www.motorcycledaily.com/05february07_mgrumor.htm

I would like something similar to the Quota or better yet the looks of the old R80G/S or KLR650. The niche does not need another Capo Nord or Vstrom. I fear it might be more like the new Tiger or Multistrada. If I wanted one of those I would buy one of those. Guzzi should aim right at the basic, stripped down big dual purpose, like the early Tiger, and sell a bunch of add-ons.

What do you all think?

"The bike should be more road-biased, somewhat like the new Triumph Tiger. "

This really should be in Road Warriors, shouldn't it ???





FWIW, expect the new "Stelvio" or "Quota" to be based heavily on the current Breva/Griso/Norge platform.

Nope, cause I'm hoping it's a beast!

Why stick that exhaust can there? Guess they want people to spring for their expensive oem hardbags. Sorta answered my own question. But I don't like it. Nor do I dig this new/old headlight arrangement. Looks like a RoadGlide for cryin' out loud! But the rest of the package looks very good. Love that motor!

Looks good to me.

Large fuel tank. 6.5"+ travel in the front end. New 8v engine. 19" front wheel.

Decent "modern" styling.

I like it.

I guess you could ask the same thing of Triumph and Aprilia.

Underseat would've been better, ala the Multistrada.

New Guzzi Stelvio has arrived

Finally - it has arrived. The new Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200. Fortunately it looks a whole lot better than some bike magazine's artists have tried to portray it.
