8. Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX
Granted, not everyone appreciates a Moto Guzzi. The engine is mounted sideways, it sways to the right when twisting the throttle at a stop, and in the case of the Stelvio NTX, has a deficit of ground clearance. Still, Guzzi heads simply wouldn’t have it any other way. If you’re still reading, then you obviously “get it,” and if you’re tall then this entry is especially for you.
The Guzzi Stelvio NTX will make you feel right at home with its adjustable seat height ranging from 32.0 – 33.0 inches, and handlebars are high and in a relaxed position for the rider. Legroom is generous, providing an open 85-degree knee bend, but the low-mounted footpegs will drag in corners shortly after the sidestand.
Tall adventure riders who choose the Stelvio will welcome the gobs of torque and easy clutch manipulation, while an enormous 8.5-gallon fuel tank means you better be prepared for long stints between gas stops. Large, hard-shell saddlebags will swallow all your stuff and withstand plenty of abuse.
