Exciting news for adventure bike enthusiasts as Moto Guzzi seems to be gearing up to re-enter the market with a modern machine. Motorcycle.com has recently uncovered a trademark application by the Piaggio Group for a new Moto Guzzi V100 Stelvio, suggesting that the official reveal may be just a few months away.


The original Moto Guzzi Stelvio, named after the renowned Stelvio Pass, made its debut in 2008, targeting Europe's big-bore adventure bike segment. While it leaned more towards on-road adventures, it still showcased off-road capabilities, especially in models equipped with spoked wheels.

However, the Stelvio was discontinued in 2017, as Moto Guzzi decided not to update its air-cooled transverse V-twin engine to meet Euro4 emissions standards. Instead, the V85TT was introduced, paying homage to retro rally raid racers. Nonetheless, Moto Guzzi currently lacks a flagship adventure bike featuring a modern liquid-cooled engine.

Enter the V100 Stelvio. In recent years, Moto Guzzi has been working on liquid-cooled designs, as demonstrated by the unveiling of the V100 Mandello at the 2021 EICMA show. This sport tourer, equipped with adaptive bodywork, boasts a highly modern engine generating 115 horsepower and over 77 pound-feet of torque, with the majority of power available at low RPMs.

While it may not match the latest offerings from Austria and Germany in terms of power, the V100 Stelvio would undoubtedly be a significant upgrade compared to Moto Guzzi's previous adventure bike models. Spy shots have already captured a testing prototype featuring this new engine, indicating that the machine is nearing production readiness. With the recent trademark news, it wouldn't be surprising if the V100 Stelvio made its debut at EICMA later this year, if not earlier. Adventure bike enthusiasts eagerly await further updates.
