Ducati and Diesel team up again

Ducati and Diesel unveil a new initiative for their partnership – the exclusive Ducati Diavel Diesel.

The Ducati Diavel Diesel – of which only 666 numbered units have been produced – is the fruit of collaboration between Andrea Rosso, Creative Director of Diesel Licences, and the Ducati Design Center. To create the Ducati Diavel Diesel, the two style centers were inspired by a hyperkinetic dynamism of a post-apocalyptic, retro-futuristic world.

It will go on sale to the public, worldwide, in April 2017.

The Ducati Diavel Diesel is characterized by hand-brushed stainless steel superstructure with visible welding and rivets that make it absolutely unmistakable and timeless. Details like the tank cover, front cowl and passenger saddle cover are examples of craftsmanship and style. The saddle, made of real leather, is unique to this Diavel, on which the pyramid element appears at various points: three identical faces embodying the three Ds of Ducati, Diavel and Diesel.

Other distinguishing features of this very special Diavel include the lateral air intake covers, made of red methacrylate with the Diesel logo on the inside. Red is also the colour of the Brembo front brake callipers, of five chain links and the LCD dashboard, which recalls vintage digital displays. The Ducati Diavel Diesel’s exhaust system is another little work of art, thanks to pipes graced by black Zircotec ceramic coating and black silencers with ends machined from solid, on which the new pyramid motif appears.

The Ducati Diavel Diesel is a bike that masters the road whilst being lightweight and agile, like all Ducatis. Its 162 HP Testastretta 11-degree DS engine combined with the Ducati Safety Pack and Riding Mode offer a riding experience that’s thrilling and at the same time safe and intuitive. The 240 mm wide rear tire is full of personality and, thanks to the efficacious chassis, also delivers high precision handling but also comfort for day to day use.
