Friend of mine has a Stelvio, 2010 I think. Not as trick as the NTX version but he loves it. Some really nice design elements in Guzzi bikes.

Kswaid and I saw one of these at the Twisted Throttle open house.

With the bags attaches the back end had to be about 4 feet wide...it was unreasonable.

Beautiful bike, poorly designed side bag system.

The widest part of the barely used 2010 Stelvio I looked at were the mirrors. They didn't look trivial to replace since they had integrated turn signals. IIRC 41" across. It was the deal killer for me. The tiny tank/poor fuel tank range was a negative, but I'd budgeted for an aux tank. 2012 models (& 2011 euro models) all get a bigger tank.

That one I think had Jesse side cases, and IIRC they were narrower than the mirrors.

Guzzi also has its share of quirks, maybe more than its share. That same friend with a Stelvio used to have a Norge, and that bike had a habit of dropping its factory luggage without warning. Oops -- there it goes bounding down the shoulder and into the woods! Checking the oil (dipstick, not a sight glass) required removing several body panels, about twenty minutes off and on. Eye candy often comes at a practical cost.

I sat on one but couldn't get it up off the side stand. Kinda cool, but not for me. A V7 Stelvio? That might work!
