New Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX 1200cc ABS

12th June 2009

Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX 1200cc ABSThe latest adventure-style motorcycle from Moto Guzzi, the Stelvio 1200 NTX, is aptly named after the Stelvio Pass, the highest tarmac road in the Italian Eastern Alps with an unbelievable 84 hairpin bends and rising to a breathtaking altitude of 2758 metres. Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX, with ABS as standard, has a unique character with a mix of dynamism, comfort and protection. It is the ideal motorcycle for congested city traffic, long journeys and unpaved adventure – a bike with no boundaries

The Stelvio NTX, with its powerful 4V 1200cc V-twin engine and ABS, offers a number of practical and functional features as well as a wide range of dedicated accessories tailored for touring.

The clean lines of the side fairings flow perfectly into the tank and tail sections with the high tech LED taillight cluster incorporating the turn indicators in a compact and functional layout - its design and functionality comes together to give shape to this unique detail. The aluminium structure of the passenger handgrips emphasises a sense of solidity to the design and offers extra load carrying capacity above the adjustable saddle assuring the rider and pillion passenger of a comfortable and enjoyable ride.Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX

The aggressive style of the dual headlamp (with twin low and high beam lights in a tandem layout) highlights its distinctive character while ensuring excellent visibility in all riding conditions and its manually adjustable windscreen offers greater protection for all riders’ heights. Further functional features have been designed, aiming to guarantee further comfort and safety in all road conditions. These practical features include side mounted fog lights ensuring a broad field of vision, hand guards, an engine guard protecting the cylinder heads and aluminium side panniers that offers impressive load carrying ability, while specially designed aluminium fasteners allow additional luggage to be carried above saddle level.

Its chassis and suspension are designed to ensure outstanding performance and stability. With a perfect weight distribution, the new powerful four-valve V90 engine and the chassis geometry transmit a feeling of absolute control to the rider and class leading handling in all conditions. The Stelvio has been developed using the new “Quattrovalvole”, the most advanced version of the legendary 90° transverse V-twin engine. The new lighter crankshaft, three ring forged pistons and lightweight valves with 5mm stems are crucial components of this high performance engine. A new exhaust system, with large volume muffler, optimises the engine performance at low and medium speed, generating maximum power of 105 CV at 7500 rpm and 11kgm of torque at 6400 rpm.

Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX 1200The Stelvio NTX 1200 4V gives a ride that is superior to many road style motorcycles, coping with all the rider asks of it - the new twin spar frame is made of reinforced high-strength steel to which the engine is anchored through six mounting points – two more than normal.

The refinement of the suspension, the 105 horses and the powerful three-disc Brembo braking system (twin 320mm front disc, 4 piston radial calipers) guarantee great control and superb handling. The fully adjustable upside down front forks with 50 mm stanchions and the progressive linkage rear monoshock with ‘piggy-back’ pre-load adjuster, enable the rider to tailor the motorbike's performance in terms of stability and control to suit different load and usage conditions. The clutch and brake levers with adjustable travel, cam-adjusted gearshift and rear brake pedals allow the bike to be set up perfectly for enhanced riding pleasure.

The Stelvio NTX 1200cc 4V with ABS is a motorcycle that has been designed and developed to reach any destination, devouring great distance on tarmac roads and even off road surfaces.

Retailing at £11,299 (excluding OTR) the Stelvio NTX is available in Magnesio, Nero Guzzi (Black), Bianco Lunare (white) and Rosso Guzzi (red). Optional accessories include tank bag kit, tank pouch and an electronic anti-theft system. There is also a Moto Guzzi designed Stelvio riding suit - a jacket and trouser set in Cordura® developed in conjunction with Dainese.

To make ownership a little easier, Moto Guzzi is currently offering low rate finance on this and all models in the range, 2.9% with 20% deposit over two years. Moto Guzzi motorcycles have two year’s unlimited mileage warranty, including roadside assistance throughout Europe.

Moto Guzzi is the oldest Italian motorcycle company, established 15 March 1921, in Mandello del Lario, on the shores of Lake Como and the factory is still there today.
Moto Guzzi was the first motorcycle manufacturer to install, what was then, a very futuristic Wind Tunnel, in 1950.
Moto Guzzi's racing history showed a record of impressive wins and by the time they withdrew from motorcycle racing in 1957 they had achieved an amazing 14 world titles and 11 Tourist Trophies.
In the late 1960's Moto Guzzi introduced the first 90 degree V-twin engine that would soon become the symbol of Moto Guzzi.
On 30 December 2004, Moto Guzzi became part of the Piaggio Group, Europe's leading manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters.
Today, the glorious Eagle brand produces a number of new, modern, highly competitive motorcycles in both the naked and faired market.
