10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Ducati Diavel

If you love bikes, you probably know a thing or two about the Ducati Diavel. If you’re not really into bikes right now, you may not know that much about it or maybe you’ve heard about it and that’s about it. Suffice it to say that this is an interesting bike that is more than capable of getting the attention of practically anyone who sees it. If you want to know more, consider these 10 unique things about it that are listed below.

1. It marks the first cruiser made by the company in 10 years

Ducati has only made two cruisers, one that was made in 1990 and this one. This particular model marked an almost exact 10 years between the first cruiser the company ever made and this one, which just so happens to be the only one that is still in production.

2. It uses a classic power plant

If you love bikes, you know about the 1198 Superbike. You’ll also be happy to know that the very same engine that powers that bike is the one that powers this one. These days, they’re calling the engine by name and they’ve chosen that name to be the Testastretta. It features an astonishing 11 degrees of overlap in the valves, which is largely why it’s responsible for being such a beast when it comes to power output.

3. The bike is definitely fast

There’s no question that the bike is fast. As a matter of fact, it can hit a top speed of 169 miles per hour and although the exact number hasn’t been revealed, it’s been said that this bike is able to go from 0 to 60 faster than anything else on the road.

4. It attracts a rather unique demographic

This bike attracts riders of all ages from all walks of life but for the most part, an astonishing number of women have decided to purchase one. It’s probably because it’s rather unique in its appearance, which will be discussed later. It also has the power to get the job done.

5. Harley riders love it, too

People that love Harley Davidson seem to be attracted to it as well. That’s especially true for individuals who have previously owned a V-Rod from Harley.

6. Ducati handled most of the design themselves

While the initial design sketches were handled by a third party, Ducati did everything else in house. In the end, they created a bike that looks like something from the future, complete with its flowing lines that make it look both graceful and wicked fast all at the same time. In reality, it is very much both of those things.

7. There’s even a special edition made from titanium

This was one of the special editions made by the company. This edition was made in 2015 and comprised of 500 bikes. There were several things about it that were different, including the gas tank, windscreen, headlight cowling, seat, and brakes.

8. It has a lot of horsepower

If you’re wondering how it accomplishes a top speed of 169 miles per hour, that’s because it’s made from lightweight materials and the engine produces a whopping 162 horsepower.

9. There are three other special editions

In addition to the titanium special edition, there are three other special additions that have had a production run with Ducati. The titanium was the third out of four. It was extremely popular with motorcycle lovers and like the two special editions that came before it, it was one that a lot of people were clamoring to get their hands on, especially when you consider that there were relatively few bikes of this type that were made.

10. One of those is the diesel

The latest special edition, the diesel, is perhaps the most unique version that they’ve ever created. It is denoted by rivets and welds that are visible along with hand brushed steel. On the brakes and other key areas, you’ll find a signature red color that stands out and is easy to spot, even from quite a distance away. This is the latest special edition production model and it’s one that is limited to just over 650 bikes. It promises to be one of the most unique versions of this particular motorcycle to ever be produced and so far, it certainly hasn’t disappointed.
