Dauntless, irreverent, unheard of, the new XDiavel breaches the world of cruisers with Ducati values, merging concepts that apparently stand worlds apart. Travelling and relaxing to the comfort of forward controls combines with the performance and handling of a real Ducati. The new Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 engine reconciles the two different personalities of the XDiavel, ensuring superbike muscle and a flat torque curve from the low rev range upwards.
The new XDiavel is the meeting of Italian experience and crusier culture,performance that merges with ergonomics. The star is the colour black, and its symbolic meanings, long since used as opposing halves with regard to personality, mystery, strength and elegance.
Long, low, muscular, with modern shapes and technologically cutting-edge components. But above all, sexy. This is how Ducati designers envisaged the XDiavel when they started work on the initial sketches. A bike that combines absolute style with cutting-edge technology. A bike that projects the concept of Cruiser into modern times, towards the future, a true “Technocruiser”.
ARE YOU READY TO
A wide handlebar and footpegs that are further forward. The road runs below the wheels, accompanied by a sense of control and comfort typical of a cruiser. But when it is time to face the corners, XDiavel will astound you. XDiavel is a cruiser, with a level of performance and technical content that allow for riding versatility and unique experiences.
5.000, 60, 40. Three numbers that sum up the XDiavel concept. 5000, the number of revs at which the engine supplies maximum torque; 60, the number of ergonomic riding position configurations; 40, the maximum lean angle in degrees.
The fundamental dimensions of the bike (seat height, rake and wheelbase) underline the Cruiser character, ensuring the right balance and more sporty handling. Technical engine features
755 mm (29,72 in) Seat height
1615 mm (63,58 in) Wheelbase
247 kg KERB weight
The XDiavel is the first Ducati to use final belt drive. The system has been developed for XDiavel in order to guarantee reliable and safe power transmission. The benefits of the belt are silence, cleanliness, less maintenance and a fluid response when the throttle is twisted, as suits a Cruiser.
The XDiavel enjoys cutting-edge electronics and technology, at the top of the Ducati range. Cornering ABS, Ducati Traction Control, Riding Modes, Cruise Control, Hands Free, TFT Dashboard and electric locks with red back-lit keys. Design and technology also come together in the Full LED optical sets, a true example of style on the XDiavel. In addition, the S version is equipped as standard with a DRL (Daytime Running Light) system for the front light.
The character of the XDiavel is fully expressed thanks also to Ducati Power Launch (DPL). This system is able to ensure safe and fast starts thanks to the IMU that regulates acceleration and DTC intervention depending on the chosen setting. The DPL is activated by pressing the dedicated button. Once activated, you can select the intervention level, pull the clutch, move into first and open the throttle fully. At this point, by coming off the clutch gradually, you can make an explosive get away.
