I read this discussion with mixed emotions. I've ridden for almost 20 years now and have owned a slew of bikes -- several Beemers, a few Kawas including a KLR-650, and a 650 Strom. I have always set them up for long distance touring and camping trips. The bike that does those tasks the very best is my current Stelvio NTX. So, if Guzzi offers a lighter weight AdvTouring bike, I would be comparing that offering to what I already have in my NTX.
Well I think we want: reliability, light weight (400 lbs wet without panniers), around $10K or just north of it, 80 hp.
Two words: Ducati Scrambler
I was high on this bike until I saw it in person last November 1st at the San Mateo Motorcycle show. It looks cheap and plastic to me....
You might want to reserve judgment until the production bikes are in showrooms. It's likely that the bike you saw was a static display and not a real motorcycle. Ducati had a few of these at the AimExpo in Orlando, and the rep I spoke to said that while the styles were close to the production models, they were non-operable mock-ups; nearly all of the parts were hand-made plastic and wood items painted to look like metal. I was told that the production bikes would look much nicer.
