Ducati define by Diavel the new form of representation of power and style in combining with the tradition that represents the two cylinders of the engine. Definition of power cruiser has been completely redefined by the market launch with of Ducati’s Diavel this class being exemplified in shapes before by models like Harley Davidson V-Rod, Yamaha V-Max and Suzuki B-King. Ducati says it has added into the ‘composition’ a healthy dose in terms of sportiness and dynamics of first taking control weight.

Weighing only 207 kg Diavel destroy competition, is an athlete besides a bunch of obese class. As we take it otherwise, the pilot and passenger, along with luggage related would weigh less than, for example, a V-Rod with just a pilot. Continuing in the same idea, power / weight ratio is devastating for the Italian “devil”.

Although Ducati tried to incorporate plenty of technology in this model, it was reported but in style. After the failure of 999, Ducati decided to design a priority, even if the best solution technically would require other measures or forms of animated elements, how the motorcycle will eventually look will be the ultimate goal.
Thus, in case of the rear tire, style was that dominated the practical solution. A 240 mm tire produced by Pirelli for this model will cover Diavel new rim.

Ducati has integrated key components in a part of the stylistic point of view – a handle of the passenger, passenger stairs, turn signal and brake lights, license plate holder. All these solutions have resulted in a spectacular motorcycle, a distinctive presence on the streets.

Lighthouse brings strikingly with the front of a locomotive, the same inspirational model that had Pierre Terblanche when he created 999.

Testastretta 11 º is what gives life to the beasts, the same aggregate which was first mounted on the Multistrada 1200. Index 11 º refers to the overlapping opening time of valve this being 41 º at supersports for a better performance in high shifts, in turning, overlapping of 11 º is used for a better response in the mid and bass range.

Power is 162 hp at a torque of 162 Nm. The clutch is wet and includes an antislip solution. The 12 hp in addition to the Multistrada is obtained from type intake and exhaust.

The basic version will have the frame red and rims will be black and white version will have the frame white and the rims also black.

Diavel Carbon will be available in two versions: Red Carbon and Black Carbon and wheels with 9-spoke Marchesini type will weigh about 2.5 kg each.
