I've had 5 Guzzis over the last 30 years. My last one was a 1200 Griso, which has the same engine as the Stelvio. It's a peach of an engine! 110bhp and smooth with it. The main drawback, as with all Guzzis, is an excess of weight. But, if you are a big strong boy, it's not much of an issue. However, I found my Griso to be too hard to handle when I resumed riding after my shoulder replacement op. In fact, I've given up totally on big, heavy bikes. If you go down the Guzzi route, you will appreciate the shaft drive, the great range, the comfort, the feeling of being on a rare and exotic machine, and the lovely engine and transmission package. Certain aspects will annoy you, but later, you'll learn to love them. Also, whilst not as stone simple to work on as the old ones, you can still do an awful lot yourself. If possible, try to buy from a well established and knowledgable dealer. It makes a big difference. Whichever bike you choose, may you have many happy miles!
