Ducati Diavel Revealed

Not all of us cruisers. Okay, some of us cruisers and all they represent and for. But after years of and months of teaser spy photos, first cruiser in a generation was announced today, and it may send the hardened anti-cruiser hecklers the nearest lifestyle leather to get some chaps and conchoes.

been speculating about the contents of this aggressively package, but here, at last, are the facts. It uses a full-honk 162 94 lb.-ft. of torque version of the 1198cc Testastetta motor the “11º,” referring to a new 11-degree overlap angle (in contrast to the overlap—the time where intake and exhaust valves are on the 1198 superbikes).

That’s good for street it’s down 8 hp and 3 ft.-lbs. of from the 1198, Ducati it increases bottom-end power and widens the powerband. Interestingly, the EFI is by Mitsubishi and Mikuni rather Marelli or Bosch.

Aside tons of power and original the Diavel is slathered with the in moto-tronics and other conveniences. A system is there to allow throttle response, with different power modes by the rider. “Sport” delivers the 162-hp Monty, “Touring” full power to the wheels moderated throttle response, and limits power to 100 hp.

Ducati Control (DTC) is also allowing well-heeled cruiser-ists to steer their beast the nearest dirt track. And the other side of the DTC coin, is as well. That user-friendliness is by a wet clutch (sacrilege, yes, but cooler-running, quieter and smoother) has both slipper-clutch functions at RPM and a servo mechanism claimed to clutch-pull effort.

It may look like style substance, but this is a Ducati, so attention was placed on having a chassis. Most importantly, has been kept to a minimum. At 463 pounds of claimed dry weight for the “Carbon” version), the Diavel is than some newbie-friendly 600cc cruisers I could

The frame is a chrome-moly trellis to cast-aluminum side plates, like the current Monster The front suspension uses a adjustable 50mm inverted fork, and the rear gets up with a linkage-equipped Sach Brakes? None other what look like the four-pot Brembo monoblock found on the superbikes.

The only lacking may be  cornering clearance—Ducati the seat as low as possible (30.3 which means lower (Ducati videos show the coming close to dragging his on a spirited street ride) and steering, due to a 62.6-inch wheelbase and 240-section rear tire Ducati claims was specially for the Diavel to offer phat and optimal handling, but sheesh, wide).

But this is a cruiser (isn’t so how it looks is as important as how it goes. is, of course, subjective, but I think designers have fulfilled brief they started The bike looks low, and muscular, and the “Carbon” version, special lightweight Marchesini carbon-fiber side panels and cowling, works even

The use of plastic is minimized, and interesting abound, like the billet-look signals, hideaway passenger units (a T-shaped grab also deploys for passenger wheel-hub-mounted license-plate bracket and handlebar clamp. Not cool How about a TFT color display the … lights? Or forged wheels?

Icing on the cake is 15,000 major-service intervals.

Update:  We learned U.S. MSRP for the will be $16,995 for the standard and $19,995 for the Carbon.

This is first cruiser (and by we mean a motorcycle with styling cues like wheelbases, lowered seats or hallmarks of traditional-styled bikes) the not-so-cool-looking Indiana of 1986. “Cruiser” may be the descriptive category, but maybe we a new one for bikes like this thethe  Star VMAX. machines offer heart-stopping sporting handling, bad-boy and frequently, customer-limiting pricing the base model Diavel to somewhat of a bargain by Ducati’s availability.

Megabikes? Supercruisers?

This may require some testing. We’ll take in Carbon; send the fringed and half-helmet to the MD offices.
