    I owned a Stelvio and these rims are a different design - looking at the pics, as has been said these are laced to the outside of the rim like a GS. Stelvio rims were laced to a bump in the middle of the rim, that as you say contained rubber washers - a bit like the DIY tubeless conversions available for the V85. TBF my rims were fine - maybe I got lucky?

    I was lucky too it seems on my Stelvio (2010 with earlier 2 valve head). From memory the tyres lost about 1-2 psi over a week or so when in use but during storage 3psi over a couple of months.

    This milestone in motorbike history has an extremely elegant colour scheme in its purely racing essence, combining the satin-finished metal of the fuel tank with the green of the fairing and the leather on the seat. Colours that also characterised the 350 Bialbero, one of the most victorious bikes in history, the unbeatable dominator of the 350 class in World Championship GP Motorcycle Racing, with the amazing record of 9 consecutive world titles (5 Rider and 4 Manufacturer) from 1953 to 1957.

    Green was also the first colour “worn” by a Moto Guzzi with the Normale, the first model, and probably the most iconic of the Eagle’s colours. The Style Centre reinterpreted it in a modern approach with a matt finish and associated with metallic colours the express the solidity and authenticity of the Larian brand. The body colours are matched with a saddle covered with a natural coloured material, like that of leather, to highlight the typically Italian attention to detail.

    Other distinguishing details are the eagle in a gold finish and the dedicated logo that graphically celebrates Moto Guzzi’s 100 years.
