About Diavel

With the Diavel, Ducati has tried to approach cross-country cruising with a different angle. Calling it a power cruiser, the Diavel is a cross between the classic laid back cruisers and the modern sport tourers and sports a naked body style. Ducati also has introduced a more cruiser-like iteration and calls it the X-Diavel, but that is a different motorcycle.

In terms of design and styling, the Diavel stands out with its bulky and macho look. The exposed trellis frame makes it look raw while the smart curves around the tank and the fascia give it a sporty touch. The Diavel Carbon, the performance version of the Diavel, sheds some weight thanks to the lightweight composites (read carbon-fibre) and machined aluminium.

The Diavel gets a full LED headlamp, where there are two vertical LED positioning lights flanking the main illuminating beam. The bike is one of the few bikes that gets hands-free ignition. All the rider has to do is keep the key inside the pocket. The bike recognises the key code and is switched on. One of the most interesting aspects of the Diavel is its instrument cluster. It’s an LCD which is integrated into the fuel tank. It shows tons of information like the odometer, riding mode and gear indicator.

Powering this motorcycle is a 1200cc Testastretta liquid cooled engine that produces 160bhp at 9250rpm and peak torque of 130Nm at 8000rpm. This engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox that transfers power to the rear wheel via a chain drive. The bike is equipped with ride-by-wire technology and three riding modes – urban riding mode, touring riding mode and sport riding mode. The urban riding mode limits the power to 100bhp and the Ducati Traction Control is set at 5. In touring riding mode, the bike delivers 162bhp but the power delivery is smooth. In the sport riding mode, the bike delivers full 162bhp with precise and sporty throttle response for maximum acceleration.

The Ducati Diavel is sold as a completely-built-up (CBU) unit through all its showrooms in India. For the kind of motorcycle the Diavel is, it goes against the Yamaha V-Max. When you consider the price tag, it competes with the Triumph Speed Triple, the Kawasaki Z1000 and the Suzuki GSX S1000 in the Indian market.

Ducati Diavel Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Is loaded with electronics
    • The 160bhp engine is incredibly powerful
    • Offers a comfortable riding position
  • Could be Better

    • Has a limited service reach
    • Major services are very expensive

BikeWale's Take

The Ducati Diavel is a proper power cruiser. Its L-twin motor produces huge amounts of low-end torque and the bike offers a comfortable riding position. However, due to its weight and size, the Diavel is not a very city-friendly motorcycle.
