    Moto Guzzi here in Australia are no longer importing the Stelvio NTX.......

    I am so glad I scooped one up last year before they ran out !

    Certainly hanging on to mine, I love it ! 12604929_796698320476239_7574141998879403633_o.jpg

    I work in Dubai with Indians, and they introduced me to the coolness that is Royal Enfield. The Indians seem to love the 350 bullet the most oddly enough. I took one for a ride and was immediately charmed by the ride, feel and sound. There is something about that old school thumper that is macho as hell. The ones they sell here have the rear wheel guards to keep your lady's dress from getting tangled in the spokes. I think they call them Saree guards. I wouldn't mind having one of these with a side hack for a beach cruisers. You Aussies sure demonstrate style when it comes to machinery appreciation, that is for sure. I am a big fan of the Holden made Caprice Classics with the high output V8s. They freaking fly. I do not even want to say how fast I drove one to the airport in Kuwait once when a buddy was late heading home.

    Ticks to all you have mentioned above !.........I have a friend in India, and he owns a Bullet 350 (complete with the spokey thingy attached)...........and yes, I do believe they are on the same level as the Sacred Cow is to Hindus ! I just love the look, the sound, the chunkiness and love putting around on it. I am a fussy old Dude, and love giving all the chrome on it the attention it needs.

    Anyhow, enough of the RE...........As mentioned, I love the Stelvio for my longer rides and trips away.........It too, has that lovely pur and agricultural feel to it, being air and oil cooled........Love the V TWIN 1200

    Cheers and great to chat
    Keep safe and Groovy

    They`re also stop selling in Europe. The culprits are the new European emission Standards.
    (Euro 4 for motorcycles) From next year ,non-compliant vehicles cannot be sold in the EU
    Let`s see if the Stelvio comes up with a new motor.

    I'm about to take delivery of my old thumper. An original Guzzi Falcone with lower km than my Stelvio. Can't wait.

    The way the environmentalist are going, manufactures may be run out of business. We will be back to horse an buggy. Then they will regulate horse emissions!! And good luck with that.

    You're right !.........However, they do not seem to worry about the emissions from all the fighter jets/bombers and the bombs/missiles that are in use every day, not to mention the manufacturing of all things nasty !!!!!.......Just saying !!
