    Doesn't look like a tall bike, I like that. Or that man could be massive and makes the bike look short / small. Either way I'm hoping it is friendly to vertically challenged individuals such as myself, because I'm placing a deposit on it once they announce production launch.

    This is great to see!... Now maybe I can stop trying to convince myself I really need to buy a Stelvio before it's too late.

    The rider in the first 3 pictures is very large, I don't know about tall. The other guy looks a lot thinner.

    Don't know what size that person was, but the bike seems to be handle "large load" pretty well with that single side arm suspension.

    Glad they took the rear brake caliper back on the high side, but I seriously hoping for a bigger skid plate if they decide to stick that huge ass catalyst muffler chamber on the under side of the bike...

    crossing fingers as it is still a test trial bike.

    As a fellow short guy, I hope I get a chance to throw a leg over one, because really the only ADV bike that is suitable for me is the BMW 650 single which I'm sure is a great bike but a bit boring.

    They will be unveiling it to the public at the September open house in Mandello del Larrio. Alongside a street oriented bike using the V85 motor.

    Thanks for posting this.
    If that is the production model then I'm really liking it.

    ya, they kept a lot of guard stuff toward to the bottom

    Kept the rear brake caliper toward tot he top

    the bike doesn't look like a spaceship by being narrower comparing to the patent

    so far it is more win than lose to me...

    now we just need to see the spec sheet and actually able to sit on it :D:sweating:

    The big eagle across the headlights is an interesting touch. If I bought one that monster cannon of a muffler would be the first thing to go.
