Motorcycle insurance bargains: Moto Guzzi Stelvio

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Moto Guzzi Stelvio.                   

Insurance group: 13
Engine: 1151cc V-twin
Power: 76bhp
Top speed: 140mph 
Weight: 214kg                        

The Stelvio is Moto Guzzi’s answer to the hugely-successful BMW R1200GS. It is brand new from the ground-up featuring a new chassis, suspension, wheels, tyres and Moto Guzzi’s latest 8v 1200cc V-twin motor.

Next to the BMW it’s not as fast, light or focussed but it doesn’t take itself as seriously either. It offers up more confidence in the corners compared to its funny-front-ended German rival, and its softer power delivery, seat and suspension make it far more relaxing on long journeys.

Not only are these new breed of Guzzis more refined than ever before, the build-quality is superb too. The quality of the components used is top-quality, the paintwork is superb and the whole lot is screwed together beautifully. The Moto Guzzi Stelvio is a grand cheaper than the basic R1200GS, which makes it cracking value for this type of machine. It has style, character, is comfortable, handles well and there’s a decent amount of shove when needed.
