    2021 V85tt

    Pics from Italian press just been posted on FB page. Slightly different graphics for the bi-colours and have added a solid black option. Engine has a couple of extra riding modes ('Sport' and 'Custom') and slightly more power/torque - which appears to be down to a different cam. And, more importantly for some, now comes with tubeless rims. RRP gone up by £200-£250, available from March.

    Pity they didn’t add the Caponord front mudguard as standard as well?

    Those tubeless wheels look worthwhile as it seems they are not just a conversion but the real deal with spoke ends visible on the rims. Wonder if it revs higher to get more power and if torque is improved a lower rpm.

    I'm hoping the wheels are quickly available as an upgrade to the old model, and are reasonably priced.

    Not a massive price hike really. Love the new Ronald McD colour-way.
    Why so serious ?

    Same power and torque figures 80hp (metric) and 80Nm but apparently more torque low down and in the mid range

    Cannot understand Guzzi, they are part of Piaggio which also owns Aprilia who had proper spoked tubeless wheels on the old 1000 Caponord yet Guzzi insisted on using their own Heath Robinson attempt at tubeless spoked rims on the Stelvio .

    Youtube video - what other tweaks can you spot?

    I found the pause button useful when watching this...

    Others have already spotted what appears to be an oil sight window on the rear offside of the engine + repositioned exhaust sensors.

    I much prefer the design of the 'old' graphics but I do like the look of the new wheels even if they have lost the logo...

    That looks like a gearbox fill/level plug.

    Defintely. Strangely it looks like it might be a glass on some of the side on shots but its clearly a plug on the front 3/4 shots.

    I do quite like black bikes and I don't like the idea of the red bike frame for a long term ownership proposition stone chips etc , black is easier to touch up. I'd go for the black bike , black frame but I'd powdercoat the rear rack and headlamp carrier red (like the other colours) to pick out the red highlights. Maybe a red mudguard off the red version too. I wonder if they've dropped the one off colour for the Travel version, that was actually growing one me.

    Tubeless tyres are good

    i'm surprised they haven't done some sort of special 100th Anniversary version ?

    Rubber washers on standard spoke nipples , I test rode a stelvio ntx when they came out and both front and rear wheels had slight leaks on at least one spoke .

    The dealership said that it was an issue on every bike they got in and required remedial work

    The pics/videos show spokes fitted to the outer rim of the wheels so no O rings. Looks to be more or less the same as the wheels on my 2011 GSA.

    Wish they had put an 1100 or 1200 engine in it as well, or at least offered that as an option

    Seems that the gearbox oil level check amd change is awkward to say the least on the pre-2021 models, something I did not spot when buying my bike. It is due every 18K miles or 3yrs but still an oversight by Guzzi, why take a backward step compared to much older models, the mind boggles. When mine is out of warranty, may look into getting a filler plug put into the casing or if possible change the gearbox casing for a later one whichever is easier or most cost effective.
