Adventure: Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 4V

Powered by the latest 4-valve version of Moto Guzzi’s transverse-mounted, 90-degree, 1,151 cc V-twin engine, the Stelvio 1200 4V is a versatile machine. The $14,990 bike has the horsepower essential for long-distance interstate touring, it offers the low-rpm torque needed for off-pavement maneuvering, and it handles admirably on serpentine roads such as those of its namesake Stelvio Pass in the Italian Alps.

The Stelvio’s rugged styling is apropos of a bike tough enough to transport you from Alaska to Argentina and back. Optional steel tubing guards the air-cooled motor and rear transfer case, and a robust skid plate protects the belly of the powerplant. The Stelvio’s 50 mm forks and Pirelli Scorpion tubeless tires combine to provide a sure-footed, comfortable ride, and an adjustable windshield lets you tailor the draft protection according to the conditions. The bike’s weight might limit the way it handles off-road, but its wide handlebars provide the leverage needed to make your way through inhospitable terrain, wherever in the world you encounter it.
