The Ducati Diavel Diesel was first showcased at the Milan Men's Fashion Week, 2017. Although, we had our doubts about the Diavel Diesel launching in India, we are glad to have been proven wrong by Ducati India. The bike was a result of collaboration between the Ducati Design Centre and Andrea Rosso, Diesel Licensing Creative Director. This is not the first time that these two Italian giants have collaborated. Earlier in 2012, these two companies had come together to create the Ducati Monster Diesel, which was a great-looking motorcycle too. Diesel will also launch a limited edition collection of Ducati Diesel merchandise across the globe in the summers. Only 666 models will be made globally and each model will have a metal numbering plate to signify the production number. A very limited numbers of the Ducati Diavel Diesel will be brought to India on order at a price of Rs 19.92 lakh (Ex-showroom New Delhi) at Ducati dealerships in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune and Ahmedabad.
The overall design of the Diavel is what grabs everyones attention. It is in fact Ducati's flagship sports touring motorcycle and boasts of a muscular stance which enhances the look and feel of the bike. The Diavel is powered by a liquid cooled 1198cc Testastretta engine that produces 162bhp. The six-speed sequential box provides for seamless power delivery. The bike is underpinned by a trellis frame and a single side swingarm while the dual exhausts on the right side are part of standard equipment.
