Moto Guzzi Announces Specs, Pricing & Availability Of All-New Stelvio


Moto Guzzi has taken the cover off the much-anticipated Stelvio at EICMA, making official the return of the long-discontinued model. The bike comes back in a modern package boasting more power, the latest tech, a new engine and a contemporary design.

The 2024 Stelvio is powered by the same ‘compact block’ 1042cc V-twin engine unit recently introduced on the V100 Mandello, though it distinguishes itself in several respects. For instance, the decision to create an oil sump isolated from the crankcase via a reed valve has resulted in minimal expansion of the lower portion of the engine allowing for more ground clearance. Also, the shaft drive makes use of an aluminum single-sided arm which has been reinforced to be more suitable for off-road use. 

The powerplant pumps out a claimed 115 hp at 8,700 rpm while maximum torque is 77.4 ft-lbs at 6,750 rpm, with 82 percent available as early as 3,500 rpm and the limiter set at 9,500 rpm. The modern design has also resulted in an engine with lower fuel consumption (46.1 mpg or 5.1 l/100 km) from its 5.54 gallon (21 L) tank and a service interval scheduled every 7,456 miles (12,000 km).



Another distinguishing feature from recent engines produced in Mandello del Lario is the 90-degree rotation of the cylinder heads. This decision not only creates more generous legroom but also streamlines the arrangement of the intake line and electronic injection components. The two throttle bodies feature shorter and straighter high-turbulence ducts, which enhance the delivery of the air/fuel mixture to the combustion chambers resulting in increased power, smoother delivery, improved fuel efficiency, and reduced emissions of harmful pollutants. Additionally, the headers are equipped with protective shields designed to divert hot air flows away from the rider’s legs.

The six-speed gearbox has undergone a redesign, resulting in smoother and more seamless gear shifts. This was achieved by relocating the cotter from the primary shaft of the gearbox to the clutch, thereby enhancing its damping capacity and overall operation. With the same objective, the gearbox desmo was altered to include optimized swingarm pilot cams. According to Moto Guzzi, the performance of the quick shift (available as an accessory) has also been improved.

Housing the engine is a new steel tube frame that uses the engine as a load-bearing element. Compared to the V100 Mandello, the front-end has undergone a complete redesign making it stronger and better suited for adventure riding. For example, the frame boasts four front anchor points instead of the two on V100 Mandello, giving a 20-percent increase in rigidity.

Bump absorption is delivered by a 46mm Sachs fork hydraulically adjustable for rebound and spring preload, while the KYB shock absorber allows adjustments for rebound hydraulics and spring preload via manual controls. The bike offers 6.7 inches (170 mm) of suspension travel front and rear contributing to a manageable seat height of 32.7 in (830 mm). The new Stelvio also features wide, adjustable-section aluminum handlebars for a more off-road friendly stance while also providing a more relaxed touring posture. The passenger is an integral part of the design and can count on a wide, well-padded portion of the seat with large grab bars and a posture that allows comfortable movement.

A 19”/17” spoke, tubeless-friendly wheelset keeps the machine rolling, while Brembo brakes stop the steed. The braking system features a pair of 320-mm floating steel discs at the front, engaged by radial-mount monoblock calipers. For the rear brake, a 280-mm disc is engaged by a dual-piston caliper. The bike tips the scale at 542.3 lbs (246 kg) wet.

For riding comfort, Moto Guzzi says they dedicated more than 1,500 hours of simulations with CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) calculation software and countless sessions in the wind tunnel to determine the ideal surfaces that would offer maximum protection for the rider and passenger, while occupying the least space. The windshield was also thoroughly tested and is shaped to deflect flows while avoiding rear air vortices, aided by the presence of the two side deflectors. To accommodate different rider sizes, it is electrically adjustable in height up to 93 mph (150 km/h), with a range of as much as 2.8 in (70 mm).

In a first for the brand, the Stelvio is the first Moto Guzzi equipped with the PFF Rider Assistance Solution, offered as a factory option. This cutting-edge driving assistance platform is built on 4D Imaging Radar technology and has very different dynamics compared to a car, with significant variables of the lean angle when cornering. The advantages, compared with a traditional ultrasonic sensor-based driver assistance system, lie in an extremely wide field of vision and reliable monitoring regardless of lighting and environmental conditions.

These devices play a key role on the active safety front, providing the Following Cruise Control (FCC), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) and Lane Change Assist (LCA) functions. The system is part of a first-rate electronics package, which includes Ride-by-Wire electronic throttle for fine performance and fuel economy management, the advanced Marelli 11MP control unit and the 6-axis inertial platform. This system can enhance braking and ABS intervention while cornering, facilitated by a dedicated algorithm that continually monitors various parameters including lateral acceleration, front brake lever pressure, lean angle, pitching, and yawing.

There are five distinct Riding Modes available: Tourism, Rain, Street, Sport, and Off-Road. Each mode offers three different engine maps, four levels of traction control, three levels of engine braking and two levels of ABS control. Moto Guzzi’s technology is designed not only to enhance safety and enjoyment in riding but also to simplify life on the road. The rider simply needs to choose the Riding Mode that best aligns with their riding preferences to automatically achieve the optimal adjustment of the electronic parameters in use. These settings can also be personalized, allowing riders to fine-tune the parameters to match their individual preferences.

The standard equipment includes a full LED lighting system with Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), the ‘bending lights’ system (which adds extra headlamps in the windshields to illuminate the inside of corners, improving visibility when leaning), and a USB port located beside the instrumentation. The latter is a 5-inch color TFT panel offering a range of information, such as fuel level, air and coolant temperature, gear engaged indicator, remaining range and instantaneous consumption. Additional accessories include Moto Guzzi MIA, the multimedia platform enabling smartphone connectivity with the instrumentation through Bluetooth.
