2011 New Ducati Diavel

Ducati launched the Multistrada, the company’s designers interpreted as what a dual-purpose bike be – practical and rugged, yet agile and

Perhaps they did it so well the management threw them challenge – build a muscle that can be parked proudly in of the Hard Rock Cafe but at the time, make real dizzy with its performance.

And ushered in the devil, or what actually means in the Bolognese

This is a bike that a superbike, a custom motorcycle and a into one nicely spiced up – …, yummy and ultimately

We were sent to Malaga in to test out the devil ourselves and the thing we noticed was that Mr actually looked better his pictures.

When we put up pictures of the on the website and Facebook, comments either positive or negative.

The ones focussed more on the tail and the no-brainer LED strips pretending to be the tail light

Of course, Suzuki had a bit of this when it launched the duck-tailed but now, almost everybody about the bike’s performance and not the Suzuki even had the same on its Gixxer and TL models.

We suspect the same will to the Diavel too because in real the whole bike robs breath away and pulls jaws down by just off its single-sided mounted fat 240-section tyre.

Logic states any custom bike with a fat tyre can be equated with a that handles like a lori sayur (vegetable lorry). Beefy American may adore them but for the rest of the with twisting roads and we rather walk.

Only a few with fat rear tyres interest us into riding (like the Harley-Davidson Rocker-C), and is only if we don’t exceed

Ducati is smart though. know the fat-rear-tyre-look will the Americans and open up a whole new but at the same time, they are and they want to keep the as agile as any other Ducati.

And so did what many other companies do – passed the headache to vendor and expect the mystery to be in the shortest span of time.

the vendor, which is Pirelli, to solve the problem with its Patch Technology (using compound construction) and that was how the Rosso II became the grippiest fat tyre we have ever

Just imagine a truck tyre that has the same of grip of the tyre for a Ferrari and you understand how ground breaking achievement is.

Couple the good tyres a ZF Sachs rear suspension nearly horizontal with a reservoir) and the front Marzocchi upside-down (USD) forks, you get a bike that can lean up to 41 before the hero knob dragging the tarmac.

Then is the engine, the Testastretta 11-degree cylinder 4-valve per cylinder liquid-cooled 1,198.4cc, all together a fine tune of 162hp at and 127.5Nm at 8,000rpm.

This is managed by computers smart to offer you three riding – Sport (sharper power Ducati Traction Control or DTC set at 3), Touring (flatter power more focus on smoother DTC at Level 4) and Urban (horsepower to 100hp, DTC set at Level 5).

You can even tune the settings, like 2 DTC in Sport mode for the brave or Level 8 (highest) in Urban for ultra slippery riding

In fact, like a true you can even switch off the DTC and get the tail out.

Personally, the standard mode was good enough for us as we still pull nice in first gear and then the system to cut it off – sort off like a wheelie function.

And yes, stretched and lowered muscle could wheelie as revealed by one of our friend from Austria. He it, and later almost everybody was it, although the Ducati press pretended not to see it.

Though Ducati wants a bit of a infused in the Diavel, the foot remained under the rider and not forward like the usual

The tiered display screens are via the side-repeater buttons. We loved the TFT screen as it allowed easy even under the harsh sun.

For two-up riding, you can out the seat and pop out the grab handle. just slide down the foot pegs to complete the It is no Hilton and we advise not to let the wife/girlfriend sit for long if you have any long planning with them.

The comes in two disguises, the standard and the Diavel Carbon, with the not really the devil cloaked in clothing.

The carbon is 3kg lighter thanks to the Marchesini forged and wheels (saving you up to 2.5kg) and lighter body panels save up the rest of 0.5kg. kilograms might not sound but do that for the wheels and what you get is a suspension, thanks to the lighter weight.

Other wow factors for the Diavels include the side-mounted keyless system, Ride-by-Wire technology, LED lights and the use of techno-polymer for the rear sub-frame. All to make the a true Ducati.

On the twisty road to Rhonda like the Cameron Highlands via Simpang Pulai, but three the distance, elevation and fun factor), was impressed with the Diavel’s

The front end did feel a bit light at but were soon forgotten as was still some feedback to us trust the front tyre.

The tyre offered good grip and its construction allowed us to the bike from side to like it’s a superbike. If the is smooth with his body it is possible to even overtake bikes on this route the Diavel.

We were also surprised to learn just how the Pirelli tyres warmed up. It get squirmy still when we fed in too throttle, especially when the was still leaning down but the DTC in swiftly to cut the drama.

Where the sliced through a canyon with stones, we revved up the simply because we wanted to to its L-twin burble bouncing off an angry echo.

Unlike Ducati engines which and wail, this one sounded the whoop-whoop of the two-blade Huey during idle.

Get it up to speed and the suits its devilish image. turns usually create to bikes with such wheelbase (1,590mm) but Ducati many exotic materials aluminium silencers and rear swingarm) for the bike in the name of saving (210kg dry weight), allowing you to go lower to the ground to smaller turning in.

Even around the busy town, the generous steering (70-degree) helped us park or between the traffic.

The monoblock with ABS also performed for us to shave off speed quickly entering a corner, or when the bus in of us had an emergency stop. On the highway, the felt like an automatic because even in sixth the engine pulled strongly any speed.

If we still wanted like acceleration, we dropped to and hung on tight – the Ducati’s acceleration was simply unbelievable.

The too behaved well during our Not even once did it fall a false neutral. In fact, it the clogs quickly and assuringly.

The Diavel might offer new for Ducatistis, especially in terms of and looks but for us, Ducati has proven one need not throw away his to woo a new crowd.

Think of this as a cloaked in a studded leather and half-shelled helmet, with a few to boot.
