New Guzzi ADV bike?

No idea if this is real.

Based on the google translation, it sounds like whoever posted this is saying it's coming. But then the guy's bio on the side makes it seem like this is just his wishful thinking.

What they really need in today's market is an updated Quota.

It's due, but I can't see what that sketch offers over the Stevio besides a smaller fuel tank.

The panniers look a bit neater but the designer has the luxury of drawing a two dimensional exhaust.

The Stelvio's selling points ATM are the big tank and the bombproof steel frame. And of course the engine. Sure they could make it look more lithe, as in the sketch, but unless they redevelop the engine it is hard to see how they can improve the performance without losing the ruggedness.

I would like to see a low exhaust and full panniers on each side. But then it would not look, umm, adv.

I'm drooling over both of them. I got my 1st Guzzi last Valentines Day, Breva 1100 from an inmate, and friggin love it!
I'll get another in a heartbeat! Especially an ADV bike!

Sorry, but Oberdan Gezzi just likes making motorcycle "sketches" to stir up stuff and look for design work. I like a lot of his designs, but don't know of any that have specifically come to fruition. I e-mailed him to ask if he'd draw up a Triumph Tiger Cub and Tiger Trail 530 a couple of weeks ago, but didn't hear back from him.

Here's a close-up of that exhaust...

It occupies the same space as the rear wheel.

With the unit sales they have, I can't see that as another model. Stelvio replacement, maybe. It looks more like a Stelvio evolution as many of the parts are current Stelvio items. Looks good.

I'd sure want to keep the 8+ gallons of my NTX. Those side cases can be had for the NTX in the US if you fork over $1k+ for the euro units and ditch the racks.
A Ducati, some Guzzi, a KTM, and a Excelsior...Indian in resto.
