2024 Moto Guzzi Stelvio Review – Specs

Conquering New Heights: The 2024 Moto Guzzi Stelvio Adventure Bike

The wind whispers tales of adventure as Moto Guzzi reintroduces the Stelvio, an all-new rendition paying homage to the legendary pass in the heart of the Alps. This two-wheeled marvel, adorned with the name that echoes through the mountainous terrain, promises a thrilling journey into uncharted territories.

The 1042cc motor used in the new Stelvio has a different oiling system than the Mandello. The Stelvio moved the oil sump outside the crankcase. This makes the motor over four inches shorter than the V85 TT’s powerplant. Additionally, less oil in the crank chamber reduces rotating resistance. This was done to lower the fuel consumption rate rather than increase power—an appropriate choice for a liter-class adventure motorcycle.

The crankcase is a stressed member, with eight engine mounts. The frame is a steel-tube design. The footpeg mounts are bolted directly to the crankcase—we’ll cross our fingers off-road.

The output of the Stelvio’s V-twin is the same as the Mandello. At 8700 rpm, 115 horsepower is on tap. The torque peaks at a beefy 77 ft-lbs at 6750 rpm, with over 80 percent of the maximum available from 3500 rpm up to the 9500 rpm rev limit.

With a 5.5-gallon fuel tank and the motor squeezing 46 miles out of a gallon of gas, the Stelvio has a claimed range of over 250 miles.

The 2024 Moto Guzzi Stelvio boasts five riding modes and a six-axis IMU for the Marelli 11PM control unit. The modes—Sport, Tourism, Street, Off-Road, Rain—alter the engine mapping (three levels), traction control (four levels), engine compression braking (two levels), and ABS (two levels). While the Stelvio doesn’t have a user-created mode, it does allow adjustments to each of the five preset modes. The Off-Road mode cranks up the power delivery and engine braking, while cutting down on traction control and restricting ABS to the front wheel. The rider can manually shut off ABS on both wheels, though only in the Off-Road mode. Traction control can be disabled in any mode.

Adjustments to the riding modes are made via the five-inch TFT screen. The dash can be linked to your smartphone via Bluetooth and the optional Moto Guzzi MIA software.

If you want the latest tech, the Piaggio Fast Forward Rider Assistance Solution is an option. Utilizing radar, the PFF Rider Assistance Solution imbues the Stelvio with Following Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Information System, and Lane Change Assist functions.

The suspension has balanced numbers and features. Travel is an identical 6.8 inches at both ends—1.7 inches more than the Mandello—while the fork and shock are adjustable for rebound damping and spring preload.

The rear end of the Stelvio is significantly different from the Mandello. Moto Guzzi beefed up the swingarm for off-road use. Also, the bevel gear rests at an 84-degree angle, compared to 90 degrees on the rest of the Moto Guzzi lineup, to leave room for knobby adventure tires. The single cantilevered shock on the left side of the swingarm does not rely on linkage.

Moto Guzzi also strengthened the front end of the Stelvio to meet off-road demands. The inverted fork is a 46mm design, up from the Mandello’s 43mm fork. The mounting points of the front end have doubled, increasing rigidity by 20 percent. The rake is kicked out to 25.6 degrees for stability in the dirt.

Further stability comes from the 59.8-inch wheelbase. That makes the Stelvio 1.8 inches longer than the Mandello.

The wheels are wire-spoked, and the rims accommodate tubeless tires. Street-friendly Michelin Anakee Adventure rubber is mounted to the 19-/17-inch rim combo.

Moto Guzzi put 1500 hours into computational fluid dynamics calculations to make the bodywork as aerodynamic as possible. Wind tunnel time added the human element to further evolve the design.

The electronically adjustable windshield has a range of 2.75 inches. There are also two side deflectors to assist in managing airflow.

Lighting is fully LED. Additionally, there are cornering lights to illuminate a turn in the dark. 

Moto Guzzi offers an array of accessories for the Stelvio, with many of them aimed at facilitating touring. In addition to side cases, there are two top cases to choose from. The seats and grips can be heated, and guards can be deployed to protect the engine cases and cylinder heads. The optional centerstand can come in handy should the accessory tire pressure monitoring system tell you a tire is flat.

Update: The 2024 Moto Guzzi Stelvio has an MSRP of $16,390 and arrives on our shores in December. Two colors are available—Giallo Savana (Savannah Yellow) and Nero Vulcano (Black Volcano).
