The Ducati Diavel Strada – Ride

The Diavel is a unique It is difficult to know what the (pun intended) Ducati to accomplish with it. The Diavel began under the leadership of previous design chief, Terblanche, who commissioned Glynn freelance designer and design for Motorcycle Consumer News, to the initial concept sketches.

The result is a an attractive, expanding (or better yet, blurring) motorcycle combining Ducati elements, such as performance and an aggressive design, elements not commonly associated a Ducati motorcycle such as a riding nature and riding

Read along as I will my first ride on this and will explore what this motorcycle desirable.  As a I embedded at the end of the story a nice World video of this in action on the bed of a dry desert lake.

The Diavel has been around for at two years in several versions: carbon, and I remember a limited run of a AMG version.  The recent launch of the Strada allowed me an opportunity to it out for a spin. The Diavel Strada Ducati’s set of 2013 model of touring bikes, the “strada”

  That includes the Multistrada the Hyperstrada, and now the Diavel Strada.

is local dialect (Bolognese) for the word Diavolo, meaning in English

Let’s start the name.  Diavel means in at least one of the many Italian I quite like the name, to me it the design of the motorcycle, it gives a to the bike, one that evokes mischievous power.  And it goes with its little sister, the 20 old Monster line, the only name in Ducati’s current up that is not a direct description of the motorcycle is.

Well, there is the as in Borgo Panigale.  Other these three, take a at all the other names and you know each of those bikes are all Multistrada, Sportbike, Hypermotard, and, dare I say,

Diavel, I like its name.

Going past the name and the it evokes, you swing a leg over the and it feels like you are… on a bike?  The handlebars come to you for a up and relaxed ride position. your feet find the more directly below and you are… on a touring bike?

  A bit forward foot controls and you be on a cruiser. Then you start the engage first gear, the clutch and you are… on a sport This bike seems to all of those boxes.

  Is there an the above” option?

Aggressive The Diavel. Tested in June 2013

Further contributing to the this bike offers are its riding modes. Urban a default to 100 HP and Ducati Traction (DTC) at a more intrusive (5 out of 8 levels), Touring with a 162 HP in a Low (less aggressive acceleration) and DTC at 3, and Sport, with 162 HP in a High and DTC 1.

The EMCWOR has a Diavel Strada so let’s try it out, let’s see riding this bike, story does it really I always start riding a new on its most tame level.  I Urban and took off on my first

Two separate information clusters.

The is very smooth, but it is different compared to my 2013 Multistrada.  I this motor has a larger and that is how it accomplishes what we get in the Multistrada via the dual spark and the other changes.  The motor has the Ducati L-twin rumble, deeper on this bike.

A nice note.

And it has this sound, when you are accelerating a stop and going through the I believe to 5-6K RPM and then you the clutch for the next gear, in very short moment you engage the next gear and the clutch, the motor is naturally its revs, and on this bike the it makes when lowering on a free of gear motor is How can I describe it… well, take one for a I can’t find a word would make it justice.

I to stop and get going again to experience that sound. distraction if you ever find on a stop and go with this It works well only on 2nd and 3rd gears, after that you be going too fast to hear it.

The Diavel in the wine country

I towards the roads to the south of and soon I was in wine country. I got it on mode for a little while but I found myself on Sport The power is there! But the motor more relaxed, but keep in we are talking 162 HP here, so when I say it is only in comparison to the balls-to-the-wall in Sport mode, although the is rated at a lower 150HP.

  It be the flywheel, or the weight of the bike, is keeping it a bit on the smooth and gradual of things or without that you get in the Multistrada. It is a different experience, one I believe matches well the nature of this bike. It not engage you, but once you it, it is there!

That is, this has enough sport riding for you to keep up with your in the sport bike bikes they would be racing, of in the curvy roads.

The Diavel Strada in its element. In one of its actually.

But they will be you when you take it on a relaxed and comfortable ride to the wineries.

What about a glass of

And of course, you could be riding bike with your friends as well. The Diavel be the odd one out, but only you would your bike can do what bikes do, but better, much than their bikes can do. I’m not so sure how well a fringed would match this

Super Cruiser

Despite (or of) what it seems and feels a long wheel base, I this motorcycle does well on the very slow and switch-backs. It leans well and it its trajectory well. It inspires

At home on the twisting roads

I took the bike back to the And my question is always the same: I buy this motorcycle? Yes. But it have to be that blue It is not a Strada version, though.

Beautiful blue with stripes

I can see the Diavel in my future, I grow up some more and I can do better on a motorcycle when my reach the ground properly.  And I would have time to so I could keep these white wheels white.

still not knowing what really had in mind with bike, I really liked it. one for a spin and make your own about it.  Unfortunately, or for me, that beautiful blue has been sold already…
