Unveiled at the Milan Men’s Fashion Week 2017, the Ducati Diavel Diesel limited edition is now on sale in the company's dealerships across the country. We tell you more about the Ducati Diavel Diesel which has been launched at Rs 19.9 lakh
The Ducati Diavel Diesel in this stunning copper brown avatar is the handiwork of a creative collaboration between the Ducati Design Center and Andrea Rosso, Diesel Licensing Creative Director.
The Ducati Diavel Diesel features hand-brushed steel superstructures with visible welds and rivets, making it absolutely unique and timeless. Details such as the tank cover, the headlight fairing and the passenger seat cover are examples of craftsmanship and style. The standard Diavel Diesel is equipped with the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP). Designed to guarantee maximum vehicle control and active safety when riding, the DSP includes the Brembo brake system with Bosch ABS and the Ducati Traction Control (DTC) with eight levels.
The genuine leather seat is an exclusive and unique element of this Diavel and bears the symbol of a pyramid with three equal sides identifying the three Ds of Ducati, Diavel and Diesel.
The seat of the Diavel Diesel offers generous space and is just 770 mm from the ground, which, together with the handlebar set back, guarantees a pleasant and comfortable ride. Full control and maximum comfort, with the inimitable cruiser style.
The inspiration for their work is an imaginary post-apocalyptic and retro-futuristic world with a hyperkinetic vitality. Other distinguishing features of this very special Diavel are the covers of the side conveyors made in red methacrylate with the embedded Diesel logo.
The heart of the Diavel Diesel is the Ducati Testastretta 11° Dual Spark, a direct development of the Ducati Corse engines that have won championships on racetracks across the globe. The Testastretta 11° DS delivers the power and torque of a Superbike,162 hp and 130 Nm, taming and modulating them with the Ride-by-Wire management system that combines high performance with a ride that is smooth and perfectly manageable.
Red is also the colour of the Brembo front brake callipers, of five chain links and the LCD instrument panel that recalls vintage digital displays.The braking performance of the Diavel Diesel is guaranteed by Brembo brakes with monoblock callipers driven by radial pumps. On the front, two semi-floating 320 mm discs are paired with twin four-piston radial callipers, while on the rear the 265 mm disc is engaged by a Brembo two-piston calliper.
The exhaust of the Ducati Diavel Diesel is another small work of art thanks to the black Zircotec ceramic coating on the tubes and black silencers with billet endcaps also bearing the pyramid logo.
DUCATI MOTOR HOLDING CEO
“ The collaboration with Diesel enabled us to explore original stylistic and technical aspects whilst staying within the Ducati brand and fully respecting its values. In this case we worked with Diesel on an already uniquely original bike like the Diavel and the result was surprising to put it mildly. The details characterizing the Diavel Diesel cannot fail to captivate connoisseurs of special bikes but also people from different walks of life, such as fashion. It’s always stimulating for us to move outside the world of motorcycling and widen our brand’s areas of interest. ”
CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF DIESEL LICENSES
“It's an important motorcycle that reflects the hard rock side of Diesel's DNA. 'Never Look Back' engraved with the two logos illustrates the meaning of this partnership: a timeless motorcycle distinguished by many unique elements like brushed steel and visible welds and rivets. Ducati Diavel and Diesel, three words with six letters form a perfect number, 666, the number of motorcycles in the world made by this new partnership.”
Absolute style in a limited edition
The Ducati Diavel Diesel will be produced in a limited and numbered edition of only 666 motorcycles. Each bike is made unique by a plate on the frame bearing its progressive number.
