Ducati Diavel

Motorcycles come in all shapes and from mopeds to monster But, here in the U.S. still the cruiser that up the majority of bike sales. today’s cruisers are packing and more performance in and around frames, but none quite this one!

BRIAN While not exactly a cruiser, the Diavel Carbon is unlike any Ducati ever built. In it’s unlike any motorcycle built. Ducati doesn’t call the Diavel a cruiser.

with its long wheelbase and rake, it’s hard not to comparisons to power-cruisers like the Vrod and Yamaha Vmax.

Most of the Diavel’s parts are except for the frame and engine, come from Ducati’s 1200. That engine is water-cooled 1198cc Testastretta Horsepower is 162, but throttle-by-wire and engine mapping allows for a output of only 100 horsepower for in slippery or urban conditions. is a beautiful 2-into-1 design dual mufflers.

And, like a fellow Italian if you don’t like the sound, your pulse, you might not be Everything is kept cool two radiators and an oil cooler in the belly

The overall look is high sportbike meets sci-fi with lots of carbon thrown in. Depending on what you view it from, it can either be beautiful, or downright nasty. A sided swingarm holds a 240 rear tire, with a plate mount that make most custom builders jealous.

The seat is comfortable enough, and the position is very good. a fairly cruiser-like reach to the but footpegs are set pretty far back, so you feel like you’re not lounging.

The name Diavel comes a Bolognese dialect of Italian and devil, and much like its this bike is always to get me to do bad things. Handling is every bit as as acceleration, but with that big tire, it can feel a bit awkward doing it. You have to just it in the corner and trust it’ll and it usually does.

Multi-setting control and ABS are available to help it doesn’t. Brakes are triple Brembos. Gauges consist of two screens, an upper display digital speedometer and tach, and a color Thin Film screen that gives more information, and lets you all of the many driving modes.

And, there’s even an style key fob for keyless ignition; hold the ignition switch and everything comes to life.

As anything Italian, the 2011 Diavel Carbon is not cheap, in at $19,995. It’s easy to why Ducati would build an outrageous bike. Much in the way I was skeptical when luxury car started building SUV’s. Who that people would pay big for leather-clad pseudo off-roaders?

people a lot smarter than me, who. In much the same Ducati sees a market for a that packs all of the performance of legendary sport bikes a more comfortable package. Hmm now that I’ve put it that way a devil of a good idea!
