The unique character of the powerful 162 hp Testastretta 11° Dual Spark engine, ensuring muscular torque, combines with the athletic ease of a chassis built to provide riding pleasure beyond all expectations.
The stance of the Diavel is that of readiness, dominance, and confidence bordering on superiority. Lateral radiators add muscle to its broad “shoulders,” which then taper down across the engine and into the belly-fairing with its oil cooler, giving shape to the athlete.
A massive 240 section rear tyre is the perfect example of how Diavel designers used a no-compromise attitude when applying their wish list of features. The sheer width of rubber communicates so much power and style that the R&D team vowed to find, and succeeded in finding, a way to make it handle – even if they knew the image would send a seismic shock through the industry.
The Diavel is a true Ducati, born from a passion for motorcycling and designed to deliver authentic Ducati performance in every respect.

The Diavel project was born when Ducati designers applied their wish-list of a bike’s “basic instincts” to a blank canvas. With a “what if?” approach to creating a dream bike, they sketched inspiring forms which became a low, long, sleek and aggressive motorcycle that was born to dominate the boulevard.
