Guarded at the heart of the motorcycle, the new Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 engine is the undeniable centrepiece. Shiny and black with machined details in full view, ready to deliver terrific torque throughout the rev range.
XDiavel represents the merger of two worlds: that of the cruiser for long, low speed relaxing journeys, and that of the Ducati, characterised by Italian style, technical sophistication and very high performance. The X of XDiavel is just that: the crossover between apparently differing and distant worlds, united in a single bike, a synthesis where both are fully realised without any compromises.
Long, low, muscular, with modern shapes and technologically advanced systems. But above all sexy. A bike designed with the cruiser world in mind but also with Ducati DNA, steering the cruiser concept into modern times, and the future, a real “Technocruiser”.
Extreme in its proportions, XDiavel has been deliberately designed “element by element”. The frame, which is short and modern, is immediately recognisable as the classic Ducati trellis frame. The steel fuel tank recalls the cruiser world but retains the DNA of the Monster and Diavel. The front light, a very modern reinterpretation of the classic light of the naked Ducati, is now enhanced with the Daytime Running Light, making the bike instantly recognisable. And it is the same for the tail, silencer and seat: all elements which, if looked at individually, exist in their own right but which, at the same time, represent an extremely harmonious and balanced collection. Like many soloists coming together to create a great orchestra.
Its place in the cruiser world is clear in its proportions, shapes and details. This world, seen through a Ducati lens.
