2010 MOTO GUZZI Stelvio 1200 NTX

The new Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 4V NTX represents a fusion between the Italian passion for motorcycle as an unparalleled expression of style, engineering excellence and riding pleasure, and an appetite for adventure - the irresistible yearning to discover distant, challenging places. This is not the first time that the name "NTX" has been used in the history of Moto Guzzi. In 1986, in the heyday of long distance African races such as the Paris-Dakar and the Rally of the Pharaohs, the Mandello del Lario based marque used this moniker to distinguish its extreme adventure models, bikes that earned such respect that they were produced for over a decade. Today, these three letters have been brought back to identify the most specialised and adventurous version of the Stelvio 1200 4V NTX, the bike that marked the return of Moto Guzzi to the maxi enduro segment. Around this modern and technologically advanced base, a new concept of a no limits motorcycle took shape, creating a bike that is powerful, muscular, robust and unstoppable. Bolstering this image is the robust "armour" encasing the forms of the Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 4V NTX, consisting of a sump guard, an engine guard and integrated hand shields to protect the rider and his steed from any obstacle on their way. Adding visual presence yet also sturdy and practical, the aluminium panniers and supplementary halogen headlamps complete the generous standard equipment of the new NTX, which may be even further enhanced with a comprehensive selection of optional accessories such as a GPS, heated hand grips and, for the more adventurous rider, a kit of enduro tyres with a rear 150/70 R17 tyre mounted on the standard 4.25 inch rim.

Once in the saddle, the reality proves to be even better than you could have imagined, with the powerful "Quattrovalvole" engine delivering, in its latest incarnation, a maximum torque of 113 Nm at just 5800 rpm, marking a significant improvement over the 108 Nm at 6400 rpm of the previous version.

These results were achieved by adopting new cam profiles and a revised air box, which make the "Quattrovalvole" engine even more responsive at low engine speeds while still producing practically the same maximum power. Completing this technological tour de force is a new ABS braking system, introduced on the Stelvio 1200 4V together with the more flexible engine. The NTX has been designed with the same innovative and modern criteria as its smaller sister, and this is evident in both the quality of the chassis componentry and in premium details such as the adjustable windscreen and saddle, and the ingenious glove-box compartment with remote release operable from the handlebar, which reveal the attention dedicated in the project to rider and passenger ergonomics.
