If you ride them, you'll see they are anything but long in the tooth.
The fuel in the NTX is carried the same way as the BMW GS Adventure.
If that is too high for you you have 2 choices:
1/ Get the regular Stelvio
b/ Don't fill the tank all the way up. Put 5 gallons in it like a Triumph or KTM...

So, Mr. Job Creator, let's find a fabricator in China to pump out a few thousand metal tanks and sell them to the lucky owners when their warranty runs out. The prototype already exists, and the complaintants in the Class Action suit constitute your target market. All that's left to do is set the price and build the distribution channel.

It'd be like picking up hundred dollar bills from the sidewalk.

Ride down to your local Guzzi dealer. Rap your knuckles on the tank.

My "Local" Guzzi Dealer is half a State away - an' I'm talkin' a REAL "State" - not those wimpy little things they have up'n th' Nawtheast in Yankee-land....

I could ride two days and still be in the same state.

One advantage of being in CA is every city has multiple dealers nearby.
