  1. Ciao Guest - we've been proud to harbor such wonderful Guzzisti camaraderie since 2005, for FREE. Times have changed, and so have the attitudes and expectations of far too many. Starting Jan 1, 2020, we will likely be shifting to a pay to participate format. You will still be able to read for free. This should alleviate all of the opinionated negativity that the free social media channels have created. If you are a donor or customer of ours, you're in, just use the Contact tab above if your account is not already promoted, or you can Upgrade your account once signed in. Or the Donate tab above is another option. We look forward to continuing this service to the Guzzi community, but it is not cheap or easy to host and maintain. We wish you the best for the Holidays and in the New Year.

    It is mentioned 21L somewhere

    And honestly, if V85 is lighter than 500lb with "some stuff on" like crashbars & MAYBE top box, then I would be a happy clam...

    My biggest "turned off" of Stelvio is always its weight especially I can't handle it too well with my short legs...

    most bike weights are stated dry 440 wouldn't be bad you theoretically cold be close to the dorsoduro in performance

    Not sure if anyone's linked these yet, but there are a couple of vids from InterMOT. Not really any new info, mind

    I think at 229kgs there looks like plenty of weight to be pulled off for the potential of building it into a nice motard especialy if a gtrx big bore kit comes out!

    Seat Height: 830mm...Hoping there is a lower seat option or I will be visiting seat maker really soon :p

    MPG: looks like ~48 MPG...means ~260miles...not bad not bad...

    Weight: seems to align with what they claim...but will need actual testing by the owner as we all know how optimistic factory sometimes are with their numbers...

    Tires: the tube tires are a bit disappointment...for sure...

    So like 6.6" of travel on both the front and back? Seems a little low compared to the other 800cc advs.

    Funny stuff. Why would anyone buy a purpose built bike with plans of turning it into something it was not meant to be. The results, at best, would be a compromise, even after sinking big $$$ into the project. Doesn't make sense to me....

    How would anyone make a big bore kit for this engine? Is it not already maxed out in terms of bore (and stroke) being the Guzzi small block?

    Same as the Stelvio up front, more than Stella at the back (170 v 155mm). Also, dry weight of 208kg is around the same as the new Tiger 800 XCa. Tubes are a shame, but I lived with them on my old Triumph Scrambler without much fuss. Spoked tubeless would have been nice though :)

    All a hyper motard is is a mid sized adventure bike thats been lightened and has sport tires added therr looks to be a lot of extra weight on this bike if you removed the luggage brackets put on a minimal exhaust gave it a good tune it should be able to give the dorsoduro a good run for its money and maybe even the duc
