    In next weeks MCN,
    apparently an 8 bike test,
    anyone hazard a guess as to what the bikesbwill be:

    Explorer
    GS
    Multistrada
    Tenere
    KTM adventure
    Crosstourer
    Versys 1000
    number 8 ???
    unless they add the GS adv, 1050, tiger 800,
    '08 1050 gone, 2017 KTM 1290S gone, now '94 ZZR1100D back to old times (temporarily)

    Moto Morini is dead and six feet under.
    And it's a shame because the Granpasso not only looks pretty and original, but its VTwin is undoubtly the best ever made (in terms of sensations/ease of use compromise).
    I'd place my bet on Moto Guzzi Stelvio.

    Hi NiK, MCN reported differently a couple of weeks back but then they are not always correct (as we all know) ...

    I didn't hear that resurrection news!
    I hope they'll go on proposing original, still classic, bikes!

    And I maintain my opinion on their Twin: sound, torque, "elasticity", look... a true gem!
    (and I don't like twins ;-)

    A Stelvio would seem to fit in with those listed?
