Why I would buy the Ducati xDiavel S
It is a cruiser, but one that handles like no cruiser should – and it looks amazing.
Why I would avoid the Ducati xDiavel S
The regular Diavel is a much better all-around motorcycle, and at a similar price
The Ducati xDiavel is a more cruiser-oriented version of the Diavel, which was, in many ways, a most confusing motorcycle. The Diavel accelerated like a drag bike, handled like a sport- tourer and looked like a cruiser. The xDiavel is an attempt to appeal to the more traditional cruiser market, with a belt drive, forward-placed foot pegs and a long, low look. The xDiavel S is a version of the xDiavel with a few upgrades. On the list are a Bluetooth connection, all-LED lighting, DLC coating for the front forks, belt covers for the engine, frame and foot peg plates, a seat with two different upholstery materials, mirrors that are machined out of a single piece of metal, and a much more fetching wheel design - one that we've come to know as a 'diamond cut' design in our market.
