We’ve named it the Urban Vehicle as it will assault mind, heart, eyes and and bystanders will be put on notice by the ear-pounding thump and the Diavel’s style.

The name Diavel dee-AH-vel) comes from the dialect word for “devil”. when it was wheeled out in front of a of Ducati engineers and technicians for the time one of them blurted out in dialect, “Ignurant comm’ al meaning, “Evil, like the You can make up your own mind.

The heart

Ducati took the 11 engine from the Multistrada and retuned it for even more With 119kW and a colossal of torque, the Diavel Testastretta 11 is all about authentic Desmodromic The Diavel comes with power modes: Sport, and Urban.

Just crack the in Sport Mode and it launches you with gusto. You get full and full-on throttle response for acceleration. For the full taste of all power, the Sport mode lowers the DTC (Ducati Traction system intervention to level 1 for who prefer their performance a closer to the traction limit.

Touring Mode

The Touring is also programmed to produce power but gives a smoother, user-friendly power delivery. traction is enhanced by increasing DTC intervention to level 4 and is intended to an enjoyable and relaxing ride. mode is ideal for long-distance and ensures maximum comfort for rider and passenger.


As riding on city streets can more attention to the surroundings to throttle inputs, the Urban Mode instantly changes the character to provide a manageable and ride. Power output is and DTC is further enhanced to level 8 to a higher system intervention the most chaotic of stop-start Truthfully, Urban Mode like a bit of a waste to me: why have an aggressive-looking machine and not have the whack of power?

It won’t you that 95 per cent of the time I the Diavel in Sport Mode but the initial fun factor wears off I I and most riders would set it on mode to get better fuel our result of 8.37L/100km doesn’t get you too

Music to the ear

This leads me the ear-pounding, heart-thumping sound from the massive 58mm exhaust headers that into the two-one-two system power-enhancing equal lengths give the Diavel such power delivery. I suspected Australia had taken some of the out, because at idle extremely loud and once you on the throttle you get even more roar.

But who knows? There is no reason to put another pipe on the other than for show. To noise control limits, engineered an electronic flap cuts noise at just the revs.

When parking the Diavel, an lock can be actuated on the steering simply by applying full lock and pressing the ignition-off a second time. This take a bit of getting used to but and you’ll like it.


Attention-getters include that rear tyre and the custom-looking milled detailed wheels. The engineers were given rein and obviously believed an bike like the Diavel a fat rear tyre, in this a specially made Pirelli Corsa II complete with around the side of the tread.

Usually, bikes with a wide rear tyre like mad, but come the corner I pushed on the bar and zip! it went quite competently. So the few corners I pushed harder and and found the Diavel tips corners well and rides and holds its line nicely. I to the Diavel for thinking otherwise and it was off to play in some real

Ducati Diavel Carbon

The Diavel Carbon is three lighter than the standard and really displays the true of the Diavel concept: performance, and Italian engineering at its best.

The Carbon comes in “Red (gloss red over matt with red frame or “Black (both gloss and matt-black weave) with black Both Diavel Carbon roll on black wheels, and milled to expose the natural below.
