Motorcycle insurance bargains: Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX

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 NTX.                               

Insurance group: 13
Engine: 1151cc 4-valve, V-twin
Power: 105bhp
Top speed: 125mph
Weight: 251kg                  

The Moto Guzzi Stelvio is well-built, sounds great, stylish, easy to handle, comfortable, practical and comes with that historic Moto Guzzi badge on the tank. To cap it all it’s cheaper than an equivalent-spec’d BMW too. Plus it's only group 13 to insure, which isn't bad for a big tourer.                                 

The Stelvio NTX is very manageable, far more so than its gigantic BMW competition. It carries it’s all-up, ready-to-go weight of 251kg (5kg less than the GS Adventure) very well at low speed, thanks to a low, two-way adjustable seat, which can be set at 820mm or 840mm. The two-position GS Adventure seat is 890/910mm tall.

Town riding is made easy by an ultra-smooth throttle response, gearbox, clutch action and out on the mountain passes the steering is light, and the chassis and suspension set-up gives you lots of confidence.     

In true adventure-style, the Stelvio NTX comes with big panniers, spotlights, sump and engine protection and knobbly off-road tyres. It also comes with ABS, radial brakes and a single-sided swingarm/shaft drive as standard.
