Moto Guzzi V100 Stelvio spy shots emerge

Spy shots have emerged of the rumoured and anticipated Moto Guzzi V100 Stelvio, a more off-road-biassed version of the V100 Mandello.

The first spy shots of the upcoming Moto Guzzi V100 Stelvio have emerged, with the bike taking a more adventure-biassed approach compared to the V100 Mandello.

This is not a surprise, since the first idea we had that the motorcycle was being worked on was a spoked wheel, with 'Stelvio' written below it, perched on a plinth at the EICMA show in 2022.

Indeed, the spoked wheels (including a 19-inch at the front) are one of the features of the Stelvio that mark it out from the Mandello in the new spy photos published on Motociclismo. In addition, the front bodywork is slightly changed, although the distinctive front light of the Mandello remains on the Stelvio, and there is new suspension allowing longer wheel travel. Other off-road changes include a higher ground clearance, skid plate, hand guards, and a raised position of the windshield in comparison to the Mandello.


Technological innovations on the Stelvio include front radar, which is likely to be used for a number of electronic aids such as adaptive cruise control. Radar is also fitted at the rear for blind spot warnings that are relayed to the rider via LED lights in the mirrors.

When we will see official confirmation of the V100 Stelvio and official details from the manufacturer about their new adventurer is unclear, but making an estimation of the second week of November in the city of Milan would seem well-calculated.

MOTO Guzzi is thought to be bringing a name from its past back to the range in 2023, as the Stelvio adventure touring bike is set to launch this year.

Official details of the new model are as yet unknown, although we can point to the firm’s recently released V100 Mandello as the basis for the new model. In that bike the newly-developed transverse V-twin packs 115bhp and 72lb-ft of torque, and while Moto Guzzi will likely re-map the engine for the adventure touring machine, the overall specs and performance figures should be fairly similar. We’d also expect the team at Mandello Del Lario to tweak the gearing for the new bike, either mixing up the specific ratios or with a final drive tweak to help aid long-distance cruising. The all-new engine platform is an exciting update for the Italian brand and marked the first time it had employed down-draft fuel injection for the first time in the modern era. An engine alone won’t make an adventure bike though, and we’d expect the chassis of the incoming machine to differ greatly from the sporty, touring-oriented V100 Mandello.

The first teaser that Guzzi was planning for this new model was seen at EICMA in 2022. As in previous years (with the Tuono 660 and Taureg 660) the Piaggio Group (which owns Moto Guzzi, Aprilia, and Vespa) used the world’s biggest motorcycle show to reference the bike for the first time. Last year it was simply a set of spoked wheels sat on the plinth with the word ‘Stelvio’ proudly adorning the display. If previous timelines are followed, we should be seeing the new machine getting an official unveiling in Milan this November.
