good grief...

looks like it's been front-end crashed already... a fantastic chassey - slim, light, lovely wheels, comfy and sharp - dressed up like a bag of s***... I thought the Multistrada was the last of pig-ugly Itlians, but how wrong can you be?

A new low...

While it seems to be compulsory to make giant trailie/adventure/'maxi-enduro' type bikes hideously ugly, this is surely a new low. I hope for Guzzi's sake that it rides far better than it looks. You'd think that when the bikes main rival, the BMW GS, is such a foul-faced monster it would have been easy for Guzzi to steal an edge by designing something better looking.

I quite like it.

Trick for Guzzi now would be to make it so the abs can be by-passed so as not to get stranded off the beaten path.....

I'm ready...

...but I want someone to ride one from John O Groats to the Horn of Africa to reassure me of the reliability. Also Guzzi, tell me about ultra-Long service intervals? Fabtasticulous fuel consumption? Cheap tyres? Low cost of ownership? There's a reason why Super Giant Trailies became the Travellers choice, and frankly, boys'n'girlz, 100cv and beauty was simply not relevant. Being able to fix it in the middle of the desert with a chopstick and tent mallet is - and that is just as important on a wet Wednesday in Wednesford, where looking the part is half the battle - Look how the new Yammy XTZ660 has a `crush Poland, Annexe the Sudetenland` kinda look to it. The Guzzi? More like `Crush my parting and mince up the Avenue`... It is, frankly, Gay. In a nice sense. But not `nice` as in, "ooh that's nice, can I have one..?"

Stelvio

Not the best looking bike, maybe a different colour will help. The painted fork protectors/fender bracket looks yuk. At least we have a another option V the bavarian bank bandits. Dependant on weight, tank size, price etc I will consider it.

Reliability

With regards to "Snave's" question about wanting someone to ride from John O'Groats to Cape Town...I'm up for it! Let's see...the BMW has canbus electrics and needs a full time back-up man to restore the default settings with a computer against proper electrics which anyone with a mallet and tent peg could cure. Then of course there's the small matter of 4 valve cylinder heads with screw and locknut tappet adjustment with the plus being that you can take the rocker covers off without oil dripping on the floor. So a 6250 mile service interval, adjustable tappets (without a pocket full of dreaded shims and a calculator), fuel injection (a downside in my opinion but a necessary evil nowadays) and tubeless tyres on spoked rims that are probably good quality, and let's not forget that you don't need to "tarmac etch" the rocker covers when going off of vertical! I'm off to Milan next week to see this beauty (yes, I do wear glasses and I have got them on and I think it's prettier than the BMW equivalent) and hope that Guzzi will get it here with the same power (or more) than the 8 valve Griso.

Reliability

Judging from the horror stories about poor reliability and build quality from mates who own GSs, I would much rather trust a Guzzi on a long journey. They have made leaps and bounds in quality in the last 3 years, and the newer models have proved very solid. I think there is room for another bike like the Stelvio to compete with the GS- a chance to be different rather than follow the herd and the Ewan and Charlie wannabees.
