And in the broad view, the Stelvio checks all the boxes. Long-travel suspension: 6-plus inches, check. Big gas tank for plenty of range: 8-plus gallons, check. Standard, roomy luggage: a pair of 37-liter hard bags, check. First offered for 2008, the Stelvio received substantial upgrades for 2012, including a revised fairing, different windshield, and that massive, 8.5-gallon fuel tank. For US customers, only the up-level NTX is available, which comes standard with the hard bags plus hand guards, spoke wheels, and a taller windscreen than the base Stelvio. Factory farkled.
