Ducati -Demystifying The Diavel


Exhilarated just by the looks? Read on and cruise though the darkest side of power.

The Ducati Diavel is definitely sexier than any super hot model! Innovative curves that evoke your senses, the wicked LED lights that glare into your very soul, and a brutish force that just wouldn’t stop. Although the Ducati Diavel has the looks of a cruiser, its sporty looks would leave you bewildered.

The Demon on Wheels:

The posture permeates supremacy and a confident prowling force. The Diavel’s wide sinewy shoulders caress the engine and lead towards the belly-fairing oil cooler, adding masculinity to the bike.

After unveiling the 2015 Ducati Diavel at the 84th Geneva Motor Show held at Switzerland, The Italian Motorcycle Manufacturer emphasized on the striking features, a meaner design and charged with more power than ever, making it a noteworthy cruiser that is going to “top” the cruiser bike list soon.


The Diavel 2015 is going to sport evolutionary changes.  Although, the existing design might seem just about same to the untrained eye, the design has undergone functional upgrades, making Diavel more desirable. The headlight has got a whole new look with the newly installed sports all LED illumination, the indicators carry the same LED design. The rider can derive the benefits of the new dual seat that provides better comfort to the seated duo.

WHAT'S NEW: Beside the functional upgrades, the 2015 Ducati Diavel is going to roar louder than ever, with an updated 1198 cc Testastretta-11° Dual Spark Engine.

Diavel is also going to be graced with new pistons that would ensure a better compression ratio than the previous versions and the fuel spraying is also going to be taken care of by installing new fuel injectors. The new engine has enhanced power and improved performance. You can expect a vigorous 162 Horse power from the new engine with 9250 RPM producing 130.5 Nm of torque at 8000 RPM. The new engine is paired up with a 6-speed transmission. Ducati has added Marzocchi forks to the Diavel along with monoblock Brembo ABS Brakes to calm the beast. The tires on the Diavel are as Legendary as the bike. The 120 mm front tyre and the 240-section rear tyre is built to handle you like a baby (made by Pirelli Diablo Rosso II) taking you closer to a safely handled prodigious ride.
