But since Diavel is out there primarily to woo the cruiser fans, it has all the ingredients of a cruiser. Exceptionally low seat height for a Ducati at just 30.3 inches, stretched out pegs and reasonably wide handle bars, the cruiser lover will feel at home. But just so, s/he wants to go the sports mode, just fold the passenger pegs and they hide completely, and get the piilion seat cover mount and lo!

You have a sports bike. Behind the pillion seat, you can see the vertically stacked LED tail lights complimenting the front’s vertical LED turn signals mounted on the radiator shrouds. The headlight looks somewhat similar to the Monster, but with a more aggressive look, you know, kind of ‘I am ready’.

And then the stylish license plate, it is bolted to the rear hub with a trellis frame wrapped around the rear tire from the left to hold the number plate in the area where the policeman would want it to be. The Diavel, just like the latest Ducatis, is equipped with a hands-free ignition which means with the key in your pocket, the bike becomes armed as soon as you reach 6.5 feet within the diameter of the Diavel.

So basically, the Diavel has everything any biker would fancy and if you are a biker, which I presume you are since you are reading this blog, sign a cheque of $16,995 or $19,995 for the base or carbon variant respectively and check it out in your nearest Ducati dealer. Let me assure you, you will not come out with the cheque, rather with a big smile on your face atop the most handsome devil you have seen till Ducati thinks about building a new Lucifer, Villain, Rogue, whatever since the monster and now the Diavel are already icons.
